If you see any moisture that is either seeping into your ceilings or dripping into the room itself, there are important actions that you need to take to prevent any further damage. This moisture can encourage mold, rot, attract rodents and insects and ruin paint.
Common causes of this moisture include:
- Leaky plumbing
- Leaky roof
- Leaks in your air conditioning system
- Moisture build-up in the attic as a result of poor attic ventilation
If you only experience the leakage when it rains, then you most likely have a leaky roof. If you notice it while your air conditioner is running, then you’re A/C is probably the culprit. If you want, you can take a look into your attic to see what is causing the problem. Otherwise, feel free to call us to come look around. If a leaky air conditioning system is causing the seepage, then we can provide you with a repair estimate.
If you have poor ventilation in your attic, this can cause moisture to build up in the summer. If you have excess moisture build-up in your attic, then you will also have excess heat build-up. This will heat all of the air conditioning ducts in your attic, which can reduce your home’s energy efficiency as a result of the extra heat.
One of the easiest, low-cost ways to prevent this moisture is to improve your attic ventilation. This can lead to a more comfortable home that uses much less energy, saving you on your energy bills. If you are interested in learning more about Attic Ventilation, please give us a call.
