What's the purpose of attic ventilation?  It seems like a simple question, easy enough to answer.  Unfortunately, all too often, that's not the case.  Most homeowners - and even some experienced builders and contractors - believe the purpose of attic ventilation is only to remove heat that builds up in the summer.

That's accurate, of course.  But what that answer leaves out is just as important as what it includes.

If you understand the principles of attic ventilation, you know an effective venting system provides year-round benefits.

  • During warmer months, ventilation helps keep attics cool.
  • During colder months, ventilation reduces moisture to help keep attics dry.  It also helps prevent ice dams.

Several purposes of an attic ventilation system are to provide added comfort, to help protect against damage to materials and structure, and to help reduce energy consumption - during all four seasons of the year.
