When your heating system is working too hard, your home doesn’t expel bad air fast enough, or you have constant allergic reactions, it might be time to check your indoor ans attic/roof vents and make sure they operate as they are meant to. For that purpose, consider the following checklist on what you should look for:
- As an early statement, before considering checking your ventilation system, make sure you find out exactly what types of vents you own and whether there is an actual ventilation system involved, or the vents are simply airways designed to air out your roof and home.
- Now, before anything else, it’s important to check if there’s anything clogging the vents. Anything from dirt and debris to full-blown nests and other uncommon elements can be involved that will impair your ventilation and cause your home to heat up uncommonly fast.
- The ventilation system also relies on being clear in order to provide fresh air. When it’s not, the air quality can be poor. So you have to make sure that there isn’t any mold or other harmful allergens and elements in your ventilation system to cause allergic reactions, asthma attacks and other serious health problems.
- Finally, it’s a good idea to call a Los Gatos Roofing professional to check your roof vents for you and make sure that there isn’t some kind of design flaw or impairment that prevents the system from operating properly.
