Ventilation for Raked and Cathedral Ceilings

Rooms with raked & cathedral ceilings are vented direct to atmosphere

The reason raked and cathedral ceilings require ventilation more than most conventional rooms is because the upper region of the room has a high heat load consisting of convected and conductive load, resulting from the sun's radiation on the roof, which has overloaded and permeated through the insulation, and internal heat load, making comfort levels in the living area somewhat unbearable.

The best ventilation is an appropriately sized Condor Kinetic Cupola Roof Ventilator, with matching ceiling register, to allow the heat in the room to escape and consequently improve comfort levels without reliance on power assistance.
The roof ventilator will vent the area direct to atmosphere through the closeable ceiling register.

Air-conditioned houses, either refrigerated or evaporative, benefit considerably by having a Condor Kinetic Roof Ventilator installed, to eliminate air conditioner overload and reduce power usage.

Remember, cool air characteristically always falls to the lower region of a room.
It cannot naturally rise up to the ventilator unless mechanically agitated by eg. a ceiling fan.

Ceiling vents and or registers are manually, or electrically opened and closed to any incremental opening within the range. To control heat loss during winter the vents are closed. Electrically operated airflow controllers are also available.

The Condor Roof Ventilator can be structurally mounted to the roof making it ideal for cyclonic regions.
Construction is welded stainless steel and finished with polyester resin in colorbond colours.

Condor ceiling vents and registers can be used with any type of roof ventilator

Raked or Cathedral type dwelling ventilators are chosen on individual application as the area being vented is volumetric living area, not roof attic area

This is a general indication as to what is required in respect to roof ventilator sizes using Condor technology

    One appropriately sized roof ventilator is always more efficient that multiple smaller.
