Roof Ventilation for Single Story Dwellings
A Condor Kinetic Roof Ventilator will reduce the pressure in the roof which will allow for much better comfort levels in the rooms. The ventilator will vent the area direct to atmosphere and if the system you chose has closeable ceiling registers, you are able to also vent the rooms themselves. 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. The most critical aspect of summer venting is night time purging. It is essential that the building shed it’s acquired heat load of the previous day and not carry residual load into the next.
Roof Ventilation for Double Story Dwellings
A double storey situation is worse as the combined heat load of the house ends up upstairs via the stairwell and collects in the rooms of the upper level, so an efficient means of relief needs to be employed in allowing the heat to escape up, through the ceiling, and out the roof ventilator.
The Condor roof ventilator is used in both residential & commercial buildings and is the preferred design for most architectural projects due to it’s high performance and motionless appearance. Only one appropriately sized unit is required for a common void.
