Don’t cover your turbine vents!

We’re all looking for ways to save money, and making your home more energy efficient is one way of doing this… BUT…are you listening to me? Good…DO NOT COVER YOUR ROOF TURBINE VENTS! There is a misguided idea that turbine vents should be covered to prevent heat from escaping from your home. Attics require ventilation all year long, especially in the winter. The reason is that without proper ventilation, moisture can accumulate in the attic. Condensation can form because of the difference in temperature between the inside and outside of the roof. This can lead to wood rot and mold! Besides, if heat from your living area is escaping into the attic, that means you don’t have adequate insulation, which is a far bigger problem.
