Are Turtles Raising your Power Bill?
It’s silly to think that turtles are the rising cost of your power bill but it is in fact true. Roof turtle vents are outdated and can potentially cost you thousands. They can impact you in two ways:
For one, roof turtles can negatively impact your curb appeal. As a homeowner you want the best for your home. Having an attractive home is what every homeowner wants and what every buyer wants as well. If you’re planning to sell your home, roof turtles can reduce your property value. Losing property value loses you thousands when you are planning to sell your home.
Secondly, roof turtles are old, outdated and they do not properly ventilate your home. Roofs need to circulate air in and out. Moisture in your dark attic promotes mold growth, which can be detrimental to your health and can lead to rot. Moisture also soaks insulation and compromises its effectiveness. Moisture can cause roof decking to warp, felt to peel and shingles to buckle. A proper ventilation system can keep temperatures down and keep moisture out!
With Gold Stars Roof, we are out with the old and in with the new. Roof turtles are in the past. Ridge vents are the proper way to ventilate your home properly. Ridge vents are typically the experienced roofing contractor’s top choice for a superior attic ventilation system. They’re not susceptible to leaks because of interior baffles that keep out precipitation while letting air flow continuously through the attic.
