"Whenever I need insulation work done on my shows or for my construction company, it’s Insta I call." ~ Bryan Baeumler

Is ventilation in my attic as important as the insulation?

Yes ventilation is as important as the insulation in a typical ventilated attic.  Ventilation is important for a number of reasons;

  1. Ventilation will allow for fresh air to come in and help exhaust moisture
  2. Getting rid of excessive moisture reduces chances of mold growth and the cost associated
  3. Healthier home no mold growth and less airborne pollutants entering home
  4. As R-Value increases in the middle of your attic the heat loss at soffit area/roof wall junction increases and along with this comes moisture, ventilation stops moisture building up under the sheathing at the soffit area.
