One important part that you likely don’t give much thought to is your ventilation. But what exactly is the purpose of roof ventilation, and does your roof require it? The experts at Absolute Roofing of Southwest Florida are here to weigh in to help ensure you have the knowledge you need to make informed decisions about your home.

Why Do Roofs Need Ventilation?

The heat in your home rises, heading straight to the highest point in your home. This likely means the attic for most homeowners. Without proper ventilation, this heat gets trapped in your attic space, heating up your home and causing your HVAC to work overtime. With a properly ventilated roof, this heat is able to escape to the outside, preventing the attic from heating up unnecessarily.

If you’re noticing rising costs at your home, you may want to have your roof and attic inspected to make sure it has the right amount of ventilation.
