There are many benefits to be gained by installing roof ventilation or subfloor ventilation in your home or business. Below is our list of 7 reasons we hope will help you understand why installing a ventilation system in your home or business can be a good idea.
- Protect the structure of your home
Termites love to make their nests in dark, moist environments. Unfortunately, most homes in Sydney have inadequate ventilation. This helps create the perfect environment for termites to nest and breed in subfloors. By installing a subfloor ventilation or roof ventilation system you can prevent against not only termites, but also protect your floors and roof frames from various types of wood rot associated with highly humid areas.
- Avoid mould and mildew
Mould and mildew can grow and thrive in poorly ventilated homes and buildings – especially when winter sets in. This can cause a variety of health problems and has the potential to damage the structure of your house.
- Avoid SEVERAL respiratory problems
In general, the air in our homes contains pollutants that can cause sinus, asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory problems. By installing the appropriate natural ventilation system, the air in your home is continuously refreshed with clean air from outside. Many studies have proven that fresh air from outside the home is much cleaner and contains less pollutants than the stagnant air inside. The result is that you and your family will breathe easier and suffer less from respiratory issues!
- Remove unwanted smells
You may have a beautiful kitchen range hood that sucks away all the hot, greasy air and smells from cooking, or a terrific bathroom exhaust fan that can clear a steam filled bathroom in minutes. But where does all that hot, moisture laden, grease filled air go? Is it vented out of your home? Or is it trapped up in your ceiling cavity?
- Comply with building codes and standards
It’s vital that this exhaust air is not trapped in your ceiling – the consequences can be damaging to both your health and the structural integrity of your property. If this air is being pushed into your roof cavity rather than being vented outside, then your home is not in compliance with the BCA (Building Code of Australia) and Australian Standards – this will reduce the value of your home.
- Avoid skin problems
If you have pets or you cook at home often, the air in your home can become saturated with dirt, pet dander and dust all of which can clog pores, cause skin irritations, eczema, acne and other skin problems. Having a good ventilation system installed in your home helps removes a large percentage of these pollutants and can help reduce skin issues for you and your family.
- Save money
By reducing the temperature in your ceiling, you reduce the workload on your air conditioner and fans. When they are used less and don’t have to work as hard, you will save money on your electricity bill.
