Increase energy efficiency by installing a roof ventilator
If you’re looking to increase energy efficiency in your home, consider installing a roof ventilator or a ‘whirly bird’ as they’re commonly known.
Roof ventilators provide natural ventilation. They exhaust the hot air trapped in the roof space and lower the inside temperature. As a result you’ll remove dampness, condensation and improve bathroom ventilation. The likelihood of mould and mildew will be greatly reduced and the efficiency of your insulation will improve.
Roof ventilators can be installed on tiled and metal roofs and they come in a range of colours and styles, so you’ll be able to find one that fits in with the theme of your home. Most homeowners install more than one ventilator however this will be dependant on the roof space and size of your home.
You can purchase roof ventilators at most hardware and home maintenance stores. Installation doesn’t take too long, however I recommend asking a professional to install them, to ensure they’re fitted correctly. This can save you money in the long-term.
Every action we take (no matter how small) to improve energy consumption helps long term. Not only do we save money but we are also helping the environment.
