Heat and moisture needs to escape your attic, and it’s all about circulating air to keep things fresh. Unfortunately, most homes in Chicago and its suburbs have too much moisture – and that can cause significant issues.
Reduce Moisture and Heat in Your Home: Proper Attic Ventilation
If you want to reduce moisture and heat in your home, the best place to start is by installing a proper attic ventilation system. By allowing air to flow freely through your attic, you can keep your home cooler in the summer and drier in the winter. This will not only save you money on your energy bills, but it will also help preserve the structural components of your home.

Attic Ventilation And Roof Vents
Insufficient ventilation or too much ventilation can cause problems, which means you need just the right amount of ventilation for your home. Typically, you need 1 square foot of ventilation for every 300 square feet of ceiling space; however, vent grates and other factors impact how much air flow is able to travel through vents. Because every roof is different, each requires a custom solution that may include soffit vents, ridge vents, or a combination of the two.
