On traditional roofs, the ridge vent is covered by shingles for protection. The warm air being held in the attic rises to the roof peak and escapes outside through the ridge vents.
If you asked homeowners what their major concern for their roofs is, they would say leaks. Most overlook the fact that poor ventilation can cause just as many problems for your home as leaks. A well-ventilated roof will make life easier and better for those living in the home. Proper roof and attic ventilation often lowers your heating and cooling costs, improves the overall comfort of the home, and lengthens the lifespan of your roof's shingles.
During the summer, a properly ventilated roof allows the hot air in your attic to escape. This reduces the wear and tear on your air conditioning system. During the winter, ventilation combined with the proper amount of attic insulation will keep the roof surface cold, so that the snow that has built up on your home won't melt and then freeze to form ice dams along the eaves.
