Steelbond Ventilation

Solatube Roof Ventilation

The roof space in a home is an often-overlooked area, but maintaining a regulated temperature can have far-reaching benefits for the entire home. Many customers are seeing the advantages of installing roof ventilation, but with a range of products on the market, it is often difficult to know which product is perfect for your needs.

Why Roof Ventilation

Roof ventilation is not just important during the hot summer months. The circulation of hot and cold air from your roof space will encourage a healthier environment, removing moisture as well as heat that can cause structural damage to roof trusses, create a perfect environment for the growth of mould, and encourage creepy crawlies.

So does roof ventilation work? Yes! Active roof ventilation will continually circulate the air in your roof space, both hot and cold. This exchange of fresh outside air will help maintain an ambient temperature and remove the risk of creating damaging conditions. This can also have a dramatic effect on your air conditioning system in summer, as the cool air pumped into your home has to pass firstly through ductwork in the ceiling. It takes extra effort (and expense) for your system to cool that air if the roof space is hot.
