Insulation Through Vents
Baffles prevent insulation from entering unwelcome spaces such as walls and exterior of homes by creating a barrier. Baffles ensure that airflow continues while maintaining an insulated area. Your attic will not get the fresh air it needs when your intake vents are blocked. This can cause heat accumulation in your attic and allow for moisture buildup in winter. It might seem counterintuitive, but heat shouldn't buildup in your attic. It is possible for ice dams to form in your attic, which can lead to severe consequences.
This will allow you to pay less energy each month, feel more at home in the winter, and have clean, clear air when you are in your bedroom or living area. Your attic insulation is continually being cooled below by the air from your soffits. The fiberglass material in insulation is susceptible to brittleness and can get tossed about by air currents. Baffles can be used to control airflow and circulate more effectively to keep your attic ceiling and attic spaces at their best. This will also reduce mold growth.
After you have secured them, you can either place the blankets or batts on the attic floor. Note: Blowing insulation may require an additional block in order to prevent it from blowing into the soffit. This is easily accomplished by placing a piece or rigid foam board along the outer edge.
