IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT FINDING THE BEST VENTILATION FOR YOUR ROOF READ ALL THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION
What is the best type of roof ventilation, good question!
NATURAL VENTILATION IS THE BEST TYPE OF ROOF VENTILATION.
Let’s look at what is available out there for you to purchase. There are mechanical fans both grid fixed or solar fans, as well as being quite expensive to purchase, maintain and replace about every 4 years. They will draw air from the nearest source i.e. valuable heated air in winter and airconditioned air in summer from inside your home before they draw any air from eaves vents. If you would like more information on comparing natural ventilation to any type of roof fan see this blog – “Roof Vents Versus Fans” https://www.universaltileventilators.com.au/index.php/blog/item/269-roof-vents-versus-fans
So, think again if you are thinking of acquiring roof fans.
- So, fans are out – so what is the best type of natural ventilation.
- Whirlybirds don’t work – on this site see Case Studies & Reports – “Whirlybirds Don’t Work” https://www.universaltileventilators.com.au/index.php/case-studies/item/77-whirly-birds-don-t-work most of the whirlybirds you see twisting around in the wind don’t have any eaves vents to let air into the roof, however if they did have the 4 eaves vents, they are supposed to have to work, in reality they still don’t work. They simply twist around in the wind and seal themselves off until they are dead (not spinning anymore) or spinning and making a hell of a screeching, deafening noise.
What you need to be researching: is this product able to move air and create an airflow or is it simply moved by wind, or it just simply moves nothing.
We have said this in previous Blogs – the science is you can have too much ventilation, not enough, the wrong kind of ventilator or two different kinds that don’t work well together.
So, what are you to do for the right kind that work well together – use our Universal Tile Ventilators for tiled roofs and our Smoothline Ventilators for corrugated colorbond – much thought has gone into the design of our systems, they really work to move the ambient air throughout your roofspace, to remove the heated air from your roofspace.
