Roof Ventilation


Roof ventilation helps regulate temperature, reduce moisture buildup, and prolong the lifespan of the roof by promoting proper air circulation.

Roof ventilation plays a crucial role in establishing a pleasant, healthy, and energy-efficient living environment. Vents offer numerous advantages, including:


Preventing Condensation and Damage Caused by Mould

The accumulation of condensation and moisture poses a destructive threat by promoting the growth of mould and mildew, leading to rot and compromising indoor air quality. Roof ventilation effectively expels humid and moist air, curbing condensation and mould formation, thereby safeguarding your home's structural integrity and promoting a healthier indoor atmosphere.


Prolonging the Lifespan of the Roof

Adequate roof ventilation significantly extends the durability and longevity of the roof, serving as a cost-effective investment to enhance its value. By facilitating the escape of hot and humid air from the roof cavity, it minimizes the risks of condensation, rot, and mould formation.


Reducing Energy Expenses

An effectively ventilated home allows heat to dissipate from the roof space and replaces it with fresh outdoor air. This, in turn, reduces the burden on air conditioning systems, leading to lower energy consumption and creating an energy-efficient home.


Alleviating Heat

Roof ventilation effectively controls the temperature and humidity within your roof space by enabling the exchange of hot air with drier, ambient air. As hot air naturally ascends, insufficient ventilation can trap the heat within your roof cavity, resulting in an uncomfortable living environment and increased energy costs.




When it comes to selecting roof ventilation, there are three primary types of vents to consider:


Powered Ventilators

Powered ventilators are highly efficient options that can be either mains connected or solar-powered. They deliver robust, continuous ventilation, effectively reducing the accumulation of heat and humidity. Powered ventilators outperform wind-driven vents in terms of effectiveness, as a single electricity-driven vent can provide the same ventilation as multiple wind-driven vents for the same roof space. They offer variable and fixed-speed options to accommodate your home's specific climate and requirements. 


Wind-Driven Ventilators

Wind-driven ventilators operate without consuming any energy. Typically designed as roof-mounted turbines, they offer convenient and straightforward installation while being highly cost-effective. Even in the absence of wind, they utilize the stack effect—a natural force driven by changes in air pressure, density levels, and temperature—to provide effective ventilation. 


Smart Ventilators

New roof ventilator designs are emerging on the market, incorporating smart chips to assist in the removal of heat and condensation from roofs. These smart roof ventilators electronically recognize and respond to roof space temperature and condensation conditions, helping to keep the area cool in summer and dry in winter. They are commonly installed alongside smart lighting and fans in newly constructed homes. Check out the CSR Bradford Maestro and CSR Bradford Airomatic for smart roof ventilators.

Static Vents

Static vents allow the release of heat and humidity from your roof space without relying on wind or power. They are particularly suitable for wet areas in your home, such as the laundry, kitchen, and bathroom. 


When choosing roof ventilation, consider the specific characteristics and benefits offered by each type of vent to find the most suitable option for your home.




In order to prevent condensation and ensure efficient heat extraction, it is recommended to have one natural vent per 90 square meters. It's important to keep in mind that ventilation systems can vary, so the number of vents needed may differ depending on your home.
