As we head towards Summer, now is the ideal time to consider the energy efficiency of your home. Did you know temperatures can reach over 70 degrees celcius in your roof during Summer? You can see why roof ventilation systems play such an important role in reducing roof-space heat and improve the comfort of your home.
Let’s take a look at why roof ventilation systems are essential for the healthy running of your home and the efficiency of your energy usage throughout the year.
Why Do You Need Roof Ventilation?
Summer in Australia can be incredibly hot. It’s important that excess heat does not get trapped in your roof as this will make your entire home feel uncomfortable. Equally, in Winter you’ll want to ensure that ventilation vents moisture away from your home.
Without effective roof ventilation, the rooms in your home are likely to overheat or be cold and damp and these conditions can cause you far higher air conditioning or heating bills.
The main benefits of roof ventilation include:
- Increased energy efficiency
- Increased insulation efficiency
- Reduced energy costs
- Regulation of temperature
- Longer life expectancy for your roof
- Prevents trapped moisture
- Cost little or nothing to operate
What Are The Different Types of Roof Ventilation Systems?
There are many roof ventilation systems available to suit your needs. From designs that require no power, to those that are extra quiet – the systems are simple to install and will suit the majority of roof types.
Many of the systems have a 15 year warranty giving you peace of mind if anything goes wrong.
