Attic Rain: Essential Prevention Tips for Calgary Homes – Emerald Management & Realty
During significant changes in temperature changes, it’s crucial to address a common winter problem many homeowners in Calgary and Southern Alberta might face: attic rain. This phenomenon can lead to various issues in your homes, and as your dedicated property management team, we want to ensure you’re well-informed and prepared.
Understanding Attic Rain:
- Attic Rain Prevention – During extremely cold temperatures, heavy frost and ice can accumulate inside attics, around vents, and windows. When temperatures rise rapidly, this frost melts, potentially leading to water leakage into your home, known as attic rain.
Proper Insulation and Ventilation
- Home Insulation Tips – Ensure your attic is well-insulated and ventilated. This reduces the likelihood of frost buildup.
Regular Attic Inspections
- Home Maintenance in Calgary – Check your attic for signs of frost or moisture, especially after a cold spell.
Manage Indoor Humidity
- Humidity Control – Keep indoor humidity levels in check. Excessive humidity can contribute to frost buildup in the attic.
