Roof ventilation is crucial to make sure your home is kept at a pleasant temperature, no matter what the weather is doing outside. Ventilation works with insulation, to make sure that there is no build up of heat and moisture in the attic which can limit the effectiveness of air conditioning and cooling systems, and make it much more expensive to keep the property at a pleasant temperature. We have experience in working with all different types of roof design, and can add, repair or improve a ventilation system to make sure your home is working as efficiently as possible.
Why Do I Need To Add, Repair or Improve My Roof Ventilation?
If you’re finding it hard to maintain your home at a pleasant year round temperature, one issue worth considering and investigating, is whether your roof ventilation is adequate. Good roof ventilation works with insulation – to make sure that heat is not trapped in the attic unnecessarily, for example. However, ventilation systems can fail over time, so even if you took steps in the past to add roof ventilation, it might be time to review the functionality of your system. We can help with an assessment of your roof ventilation, and an appropriate system if it’s needed.
Roof Ridge Vents
Roof ridge vents are one option when it comes to adding in ventilation for your home. In this case, a system of ridge vents works alongside soffit vents, to create good air flow through your attic space. Because hot air naturally rises, the convection forces hot and moist air out of the roof ridge vents, while drawing in cooler air at the soffits. We can either repair an existing system of vents, or work with you to add vents into your attic space to allow the air to circulate properly. Get in touch today to see how we can help.
Roof Ventilator Fans
While vents are a simple, and low maintenance approach to improving ventilation and air flow in the attic, they are not always possible. In some roof designs adding in vents is tricky or even impossible. Here, a roof ventilator fan might be a viable alternative, to keep the air moving and reduce problems of heat build up and excess moisture in the roof space. A member of our team will be able to inspect your roof and assess whether a roof ventilator fan is the best way to keep your roof and attic well ventilated.
We know that, as a home owner, you want to keep your home at a convenient temperature, and minimise the need to use energy to heat and cool the house. Great insulation is an important starting point for this – but good ventilation in the attic is also crucial. We will work with you to come up with a method for improving air flow and circulation in your attic, not matter what the design of your roof. Once we have created a no obligation estimate, to meet your needs and your budget, our contractors will be happy to arrange works for a time that is convenient for you.
