Attic Ventilation Murphy | Attic Ventilation Murphy, TX
When the majority of homeowners think about their roof, they usually think of a structure designed to keep wind and rain outside of the home. The truth is a more complicated than just a wind and rain protector. A good roof, in Murphy, does much more. A good roof will allow some air to cycle through, typically from the lowest point to the highest for the hot air producing summer days. In fact, the lack of proper ventilation can be detrimental to the roof and its structure, by causing deterioration and leaks.
During the winter, a properly ventilated roof is less likely to develop hot patches that can cause uneven ice melting. During the summer months, a roof that can’t properly breathe traps super-heated, causing damage to the structure from within. Attic Ventilation, in Murphy homes, keeps the roof from aging prematurely and helps decrease utility bills. If heat does not escape through the system it will transfer into the living areas. Proper attic ventilation directly reduces the utility costs, for Murphy residents. The basics of attic ventilation include a combination of vents and an attic fan. The soffit vents are usually located beneath the eaves, whereas other vents are usually found at the very top of the gables. They are designed so air can enter, while not allowing in rain or other precipitation. Attic fans expel moist, warm air before it can collect in the attic. The system usually works well, but problems come up when the attic is not completely sealed off from the living area. Improper sealing of the attic can cause undesired drafts in the home and energy loss.
Proper ventilation can effectively double the life of a roof and prevent common problems. Every attic should be inspected for leaks and to make sure that the system is working correctly.

After inspecting many homes over the years, our technicians have found many items that can obstruct air flow or create insufficient air intake in your Murphy home. To help, we have pulled together a short list of the more common issues:
- Interior exhaust ducts venting into the attic space. Exhaust ducts, such as bathroom fans or clothes dryers, should vent to the outside.
- Non-existent or too few soffit vents to provide adequate air intake. The ideal situation is to have soffit vents uninterruptedly running down the entire length of the eave.
- Improper installation of soffit vent baffles.
- Obstructed soffit vents by paint, debris or insulation, usually inside the eaves thus impeding air flow.
- None, or too few, working power ventilators.
- Ridge vents installed with other existing attic vents.
Whatever your needs, we can make your home more energy efficient. Financing is available if you need it.
