Without effective cross-ventilation, summertime heat buildup in the attic can result in a wasteful and costly strain on a home’s cooling system and on your comfort. And in the cold months of winter, harmful ice dams can form if trapped heat is not removed. A well-ventilated attic, on the other hand, has under eaves or soffit vents, which allow fresh air into the attic. Installing attic baffles between rafters keeps air flowing properly up to the ridge, where vents allow the air to exit, helping to keep your home comfortable and dry.
Why should we use rafter vent attic baffles?
