When you talk about saving energy, the first thing that comes to our mind is the ways by which energy can be saved efficiently. Be it renewable or non-renewable resource based energy, saving them is definitely an important thing that needs to be done. Nowadays people are particular about saving energy and are a lot more aware of the long term environmental and financial benefits.  The biggest source of energy loss in a home is hot and/or cold air moving out of the home and HVAC units running constantly in order to keep the home a comfortable temperature.  Two of the easiest ways to save energy in your home are to have Insulation and proper Ventilation Installed.  The leading Ventilation in Houston, TX to conserve energy and reduce attic temperatures is a Solar Vent.  Solar vents use the sun to power the vent and are very efficient at removing heat.  Our vents can reduce the attic temperature by 40 degrees.

During summer seasons, the attic of your house naturally heats up… this automatically leads to an overworked HVAC unit and costly energy bills. When your home has an attic with proper ventilation this allows the heat to escape and will naturally pave a way for a cooler and dryer ambiance inside the home. When your home is not properly ventilated, it results in poor exposure to air and circulation. Even with proper levels of insulation, Improper ventilation will actually hinder the effectiveness of your insulation. It is very important to have the right number of vents in the correct position on the building to avoid the excess moisture getting collected on the ceilings and roof structures

An attic that is not ventilated properly will also face serious issues.  If the attic of a home is not ventilated properly this will lead to issues that will affect your energy usage and the comfort of your home. When your attic is not ventilated properly, it will keep your home uncomfortably hot during the winter and a buildup of moisture will accrue that can lead to mold. During summer months, which is closer to 2/3 of the year here in TX, your attic will get extremely hot without proper ventilation and will easily reach160 degree if not more. The resulting consequences could be roof damage from shingles becoming too hot, a shortened life of your overworked HVAC unit, and a very HOT home. In both cases, you will have to spend a lot of  money and energy to cool and heat your house, just because you don’t have your attic properly ventilated.

Attic Insulation and Attic Ventilation are the ways through which your home can be protected from high energy consumption and higher energy bills. You will see the difference in the level of energy that you save after the Attic Ventilation is installed. Adequate Attic ventilation is something that is effortless to implement and will take trained installers as little as two hours.
