Attic Ventilation Toronto - Free Inspection
Professional Attic Ventilation for Your Toronto Residential Property
Attic ventilation, including soffit vents and ridge vents are 2 of the essential components to ensure the health of your attic and to prevent overly high energy costs.
Your free attic ventilation inspection includes:
Intake and Exhaust Attic Ventilation Ratio Check:
Ideally, every attic needs to have a 50/50 ratio of soffit ventilation and ridge ventilation. In other words, an equal amount of fresh attic air coming IN and going OUT. This 50/50 ratio creates the perfect conditions for air flow and reduces the build up of harmful heat and moisture that can be trapped in your attic.
As you know, many roofs have various slopes, very steep or very low-sloped, or a combination of both. These factors call for expert understanding.
Because finding the exact methods to create the perfect 50/50 ratio of attic ventilation intake and exhaust means using a variety of attic ventilation solutions and products.
If you roof is very steep and not much ridge area, the exhaust factor will requuire extra attention. If your roof is mostly low-pitched with lots of ridge area the procedure is more simple and easy.
Roof Insulation Check: The amount, health and positioning of the attic insulation is thoroughly inspected for optimal results.
Many attics have the right amount of roof insulation yet this insulation often blocks the soffit (intake) ventilation. Roof insulation installers sometimes do not understand the BIG PICTURE and they cover the soffit vents with the insulation.
Soffit Ventilation Check: We all like to think that the builders of our homes had the knowledge to install an adequate number of soffit vent holes. But many homes are seriously lacking the required number of soffit ventilation openings.
Ridge Ventilation Check: Ridge ventilation is just as important as soffit ventilation because they both work as a team. But MORE IMPORTANT because the ridge ventilation system does ALL the work! Many roof fans and ventilation products are available but it takes a real expert to KNOW the best possible solution for your specific house.
Attic Damage Check: When an attic suffers years of accessive trapped heat and moisture the wood and roof structure can become rotted and unstable, and can also be a breeding ground for termites and pests.
