What You Should Know About Roofing Vents

A rooftop ventilation system is necessary to protect the roof from weather damage and wind gusts by releasing hot air and moisture from the attic and roof area. Without proper planning, execution, and airflow, the building will be at risk for temperature and humidity issues.

A good framework will manage the heat in your living area by making sure that admission and exhaust ventilation is evenly balanced. This results in saving money on heating and cooling costs.

Types of Roof Vents

Whirlybird Roof Vents

Whirlybirds are a type of ventilation system that operates using wind power to cool your home. The outside has a large, rounded shape with blades that rotate in the breeze. This movement pulls hot air out of roof indentations and cooler air into your house. Whirlybirds are not only an excellent way to make regular ventilation systems more efficient but also quick and inexpensive to set up.

Vents are often overlooked but they play a crucial role in ensuring a well-designed ventilation system. They are easy to install and don’t consume any energy, making them very cost effective. If you’re looking for something more reliable, mechanical or sunlight-based rooftop ventilation may be better suited for cooling a large home.

Ridge Vents

By placing an ridge vent at the roof’s edge, you can keep your home free of insects. These vents are specially designed with a cross-section that doesn’t let bugs in. And for extra measure, we add an edge cap on top to make sure your rooms stay bug-free.

The storage room ventilation system should be able to intake and output air from the attic. By having regular airflow of outside air, the attic space will be continually ventilated. Ridge vents are used for ventilation because they don’t require any electricity, which makes them ideal for a storage area. The temperature in the loft will become warm as air rises and circulates throughout the space.
