During the cooler and wetter seasons, moist air can get trapped in your roof space, leading to condensation and problems with mould and mildew. These issues can affect not just your roof space but also your living areas, which can be challenging to rectify.
Moreover, the hot Australian summer can significantly impact your home’s climate. Without proper ventilation, your roof space can become excessively hot, reaching temperatures of up to 70°C, and this heat can radiate down into your living areas, making air-conditioning less effective and pushing up energy costs.
Installing proper roof ventilation can keep your roof cavity cool by expelling unwanted hot air and introducing cool, dry air, thus reducing your need for air-conditioning during the summer and saving you money on energy expenses.
In this step by step guide, we will show you how to install roof ventilation in your home so you can enjoy all the benefits of a well-ventilated home.
