What are ridge vents? Most people have no idea and don't know they're related to keeping their house dry. A ridge or roof vent is a small vent at the peak of a roof that lets air slowly out of the attic. A roof that is well ventilated can make your life better and easier.
In the Connecticut summer a well-ventilated roof lets the hot attic air to escape and doesn't make your air conditioning run as hard or often potentially saving you $ too.
In wintertime, a well ventilated roof when properly insulated keeps the roofing cold so snow doesn't melt during the day and then re-freeze to the eaves. This is how ice dams occur.
