Attic Ventilation Can Reduce Wear and Tear on an HVAC System

Properly-ventilated attics provide cooler homes in the summer and early fall and lessen strain on your HVAC system. When proper ventilation is not in place, your HVAC system runs longer and harder. It’s fair to assume your energy bills are higher as a result. Your system usually needs more maintenance and even replaced under these conditions.

How Does Attic Ventilation Help Your HVAC System?

An HVAC system depends on effective air circulation. When an attic is properly ventilated, the air circulates well. Without good ventilation, the hot air is trapped within the home.

Your air conditioner attempts to keep pace with the overall heat in the home. It’s best to vent the excess hot air. This partially alleviates the burden on your heating and cooling system.

A ventilated attic reduces the temperature difference between the rest of your home and the attic. This creates greater efficiency for your air conditioner and HVAC system. Greater efficiency translates into lower energy costs, more comfort and less wear and tear on your HVAC system.

Why Is Wear and Tear on Your HVAC System Important?

Think of wear and tear on your HVAC system as miles on your car. Recall how city driving is regarded differently than highway miles. City driving, with its inconsistent speeds and stops and starts, puts your car through more stress.

By contrast, highway driving at a consistent speed does not impact the car’s system as much. Your HVAC system is similar. More wear and tear takes months or years off its lifespan.

Second, wear and tear creates a stronger likelihood of parts wearing out or needing maintenance more often. Finally, it increases the chances of an expensive repair or worst case, a complete breakdown.
