Calgary’s fast weather changes and often-harsh conditions can do serious damage to an attic that has no ventilation. Snow, ice, heavy winds and other forms of harsh weather can lead to a variety of household damages, especially to the roof and attic. Attic ventilation can help keep a desirable temperature in your home or business while providing protection from external contaminants and moisture. Professional attic insulation and ventilation contractors can ensure your attic ventilation allows for the appropriate amount of air flow. Contact the attic ventilation experts at 4 Weather Insulation & Roofing for expert attic ventilation services in Calgary & the surrounding areas.

Dangers Of An Attic Without Ventilation

Heavily insulated attics can often restrict too much airflow. This is most common with spray foam insulation. Thus attic insulation should be used in cooperation with proper ventilation to keep the space safe and in good condition. Without ventilation, an attic space can become susceptible to water damage and mold growth. If moisture is able to enter an attic space, through a roof leak or cracks in siding, it can begin to pool, freeze and ferment. The moisture can damage wooden beams, metal attics brackets, insulation and grow mold.

Types Of Attic Ventilation

The type of attic ventilation that is ideal for your home will depend on your insulation, your current ventilation, and budgets. These are some of the common forms of attic ventilation:

  • Box vents – Installed over a hole in the roof for air to rise through.
  • Turbines – Wind turbine vents rely on blowing wind gusts to allow air into an attic space.
  • Power Vents – Motorized vents that pump air out of the attic.
  • Soffit VentsSoffit ventilation is installed one the underside and overhang of a roof and allows air to flow up into your attic.

Attic Ventilation Calgary

Calgary’s cold winter weather can often promote increased attic insulation needs. Though, with increased insulation, increased ventilation is required to not increase the attics space humidity as temperatures change and exterior moisture levels rise. Without ventilation, moisture and debris that enters the attic space will pool, linger and eventually lead to a range of damages.
