Ventilation products for the home come in many variations, there are ventilators for sub floor ventilation, wall ventilators, whole house systems and roof ventilators.
Whole house systems for the ventilation of the home give some value for the comfort of the home. Whilst they may have small running costs, they do need maintenance and regular changes of filters and the initial costs of purchase are very high. For the value these whole house systems give the home owner I suggest a reverse cycle air conditioner maybe or much better value in the long run.
Whilst the whole house system may be of some small value to the comfort inside the home, they are of no value to the problems of condensation in the roofspace. The roofspace (the area between the ceiling and the roof covering) can be a real bone of contention for the homeowner – with condensation being the main culprit, condensation and/or humidity moisture can cause damage to the building materials in the roofspace with saturated ceiling insulation causing damage to the ceiling as well as becoming the perfect breeding space for termites with the follow on problem for Sick Building Sydnrome.
Poorly ventilated areas, excessive heat, winter condensation and high humidity can wreak havoc and the roofspace is the perfect contender for these conditions.
So the only remedy for the problems of the roofspace would be an effective roofspace ventilation system.
THE VALUE OF AN EFFECTIVE ROOFSPACE VENTILATION SYSTEM CANNOT BE TRIVIALISED
The two fundamental benefits for an effective roofspace ventilation system is a cooler home in summer and a dryer roofspace 24/7 365 days a year.
