Attic ventilation is a factor critical to the comfort of your home, yet so few people pay attention to it. In warm weather excess heat found in your attic may lead to deterioration of wood supports due to condensation occurring as a result of inadequate ventilation. In cold weather, moisture laden air may move from the living area to the attic, resulting once again in a condensation problem if not properly ventilated.
If you’ve noticed discoloration of wood in your attic, improper ventilation may be a problem in your home. A Realtor can put you in touch with some excellent resources that will help you determine if this is the case.
