F riday. September 20. 1991 THE CINCINNATI LNQUIRER D-7 ADVERTISING SPECIAL inter alert: Don't seal attic w is expelled to the exterior of the house. Make sure that the vents don't terminate In the attic but are routed directly to the outside. 5. Check the attic to make sure there is enough vent area: A general rule of thumb is one square foot of venting for every 300 square feet of attic floor, provided there is a vapor barrier. BUY FACTORY DIRECT AND SAVE 1 Contrary to popular belief, closing up all vents in an attic is not the best way to keep a house warm In winter. In fact, according to the American Society of Home Inspectors (AS! II), sealing up the attic vents can actually increase healing costs and cause significant damage. During cold weather, the experts say, attics should be cold, and as dry as possible. However, In most homes, moisture escapes from the living area and drifts upward from showers, unvented clothes dryers, humidifiers and kitchen ranges. If this moisture gets trapped in an Improperly ventilated attic In winter, It condenses on the underside of the roof and may appear as water drops or mildew on the sheathing, frost on roofing nails, or water stains on wood rafters. Even water stains on the ceiling of the floor below, which homeowners frequently mistake for signs of a roof leak, can be caused by attic moisture condensation. In extreme cases, attic condensation and moisture can make insulation so wet that it loses its insulating value. This actually increases heat loss from the living area and accelerates moisture damage. The professional home inspectors of ASIII recommend that homeowners take these steps to ensure necessary ventilation: 1 . Leave attic vents (at the ridge, soffits, and gable ends) open all year to allow moist air to escape. 2. Weatherstrip attic access hatches and caulk around attic plumbing stacks to prevent moisture and warm house air from escaping into the attic. 3. Make sure the vapor barrier is under the attic floor insulation, next to the warm ceiling below, to block rising moisture. 4. Use exhaust fans when cooking, bathing, or doing laundry to ensure that moisture-laden air Thermaxx vfim.uwKstsm BUY 3 WINDOWS 2 10.75 Equity Loans I"2" T" HT I 'I I u'U nil Available wmm':.::. t u I u II if 100 Financed PLUS A BUILT-IN ALARM SYSTEM IN EACH WINDOW B in mi nnar vann or nma nt M demonstration onlv .
