Cupola Roof Ventilation for Residential Dwellings, including those with
Raked / Cathedral ceilings
Shedding the heat....
To do this the first thing that needs to be done is to allow the heat in your roof space to escape
you vent the roof can make a difference in itself.
to allow the heat load to escape naturally and as efficiently as possible
without using electricity.
To be noted....
air is dense and always falls to the lower region of a room.
Cool and warm air volumes do not mix, unless mechanically agitated eg ceiling fan
An example of this phenomena is a storage hot water service, hot water goes out at the top, cold water comes in at the bottom
To this end....
The system you choose is based on how efficiently the heat escapes out of your roof.
just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it's not there!
If the system you install is one with ceiling registers in each of the rooms, you are able to vent the heat and odour out of those individual rooms. Remember that what is above door height is trapped there, meaning that you're more likely to get a better night's sleep with an open ceiling register, letting the heat in the room escape into the ceiling and out the ventilated roof, which in turn allows the cool air outside to enter the room easily.
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 consumption by 50% if used correctly.
most critical aspect of summer venting is night time purging...
Condor Cupola Roof Ventilator is ideal for cyclonic regions.
registers / ceiling vents are manually opened,
perpendicular to the line of action, using a claw on the end of a suitable
length of rod. The push/pull mechanism, opens and closes on demand.
|seasonal air behaviour|
HiFlow eaves vents can also be installed for the purpose of venting the roof space in conjunction with the roof ventilator.
