Jacksonville Cooling and Ventilation Experts
For most of us, the attic is a place to store clothes, luggage and old family photos, but for energy researchers it's a hot topic of discussion. In the last several decades, building codes have called for increased attic insulation. Most experts contend that a well-ventilated attic keeps the house more comfortable in summer and guards against moist, heated air building up in winter.
Ventilation Fan Styles:

Proper ventilation is required to protect your home. Heat in unventilated attics may cause temperatures to exceed 150 degrees—causing damage to shingles and roof sheathing, and quite possibly radiating to the living area. And moisture causes rot, mildew, mold, paint blisters, and renders insulation ineffective. Proper ventilation reduces energy bills and eliminates mold and mildew, which can lead to major health problems.
A properly installed ventilation system from Universal Roof & Contracting will extend the life of shingles, insulation, and many other building components of your home. Save money, protect the longevity of your house — and ensure the utmost comfort for your family. Contact us or call us now at 904-647-3907 to schedule a free consultation and estimate.
