All attics are ventilated to some degree. They have to be. Soffits and gable vents allow air to circulate, minimally, so as not to let your attic get too overheated. This ventilation system is passive, in that it’s entirely dependent upon the outside air to move the fans and cause the air to circulate. Though efficient enough to prevent your attic from turning into an oven, this form of ventilation won’t prevent moisture build-up.
Some benefits to installing an attic exhaust fan include:
Attic exhaust fan installation primarily serves to keep your attic cool and dry. Throughout the Mid-Atlantic area, the humidity can get pretty intense. You probably have a home cooling system and may not notice the intensity of the humidity. However, moisture can build up in the attic of your home and wreak havoc on your roof tiles and shingles, causing warping, and eventually, degradation.
Roof repairs and replacement can be quite costly, some experts agree that roof replacement is one of the single most costly repairs homeowners will make. By keeping your attic dry, preventing moisture build-up that seeps into the joists and attic beams, you can extend the life of your roof and avoid those costly repairs.
In winter months, your attic can become so cold that any condensation retained will freeze, forming ice dams. The frozen condensation can lead to damaged insulation and wood-rot. With the added ventilation created by attic exhaust fan installation, you’ll halt condensation, prevent the damaging ice dams, and preserve your attic insulation, as well as block the potential for wood-rot.
In addition to preventing moisture build up due to condensation from humidity in the air, attic exhaust fan installation also helps your heating and cooling systems operate efficiently. In the summer, as heat rises, your attic can become an oven.
Even though there are no heating and cooling ducts futilely blowing cool air into your overheated attic space, the heat radiating from your attic is sure to impact your AC system, causing it to work harder, thus increasing your power bills and putting a strain on your cooling system. When your attic maintains a lower temperature, your AC need not work so hard.
Ultimately, however, attic exhaust fan installation protects the integrity of your roof. Warped shingles, or shingles that become heat and moisture damaged from the inside and fall off, can allow water to seep into your attic, along your roofline, and underneath your vent and chimney flashing. When water goes where it shouldn’t-between walls, in ceilings, along wall studs-the damage can be unsightly and costly.
