In Australia, Sydney and Brisbane homeowners spend big dollars each year in summer to cool their homes using air conditioning. This is a result of having unventilated roofs, where heat becomes trapped within the home, causing uncomfortable living conditions. To remedy this, Doctor Damp offers long-term roof ventilation solutions to help cool your home effectively so your air-conditioning won’t need to work as hard. Not only do residential roof ventilation systems bring the temperature in your home down, but you may also be able to lower energy costs to keep everyone at a comfortable temperature.
Another reason to consider better roof ventilation is to prevent moisture and mould from accumulating in the roof cavity. Moist air from the bathroom and kitchen exhaust fans can become trapped, encouraging the growth of mould. Also, the use of heating during winter produces warm air that travels to the ceiling and then condenses. To ensure proper ventilation of your roof, you need an expert that you can trust to install an exhaust fan roof vent inside your home.
