It’s important that every roof has the proper ventilation. In fact, it’s absolutely essential to extending the life of your roof. If you don’t have sufficient ventilation in the winter, ice may gather on the edge of your roof, causing damage to the structure underneath. It can also lead to the growth of mold when the weather gets warmer. Installing turbine ventilators in your roof will help you prevent those types of damage by balancing the airflow distribution in the attic.
A turbine ventilator may look sort of intricately made, but the way that it works is very simple. It is a round shaped vent that houses a circular fan that is powered by breezes or wind. When the wind blows in a specific direction, it causes the fan to turn which draws air from the attic and disperses it. There are many benefits that you will enjoy when you install turbine ventilators. Let’s look at some of them.
While there is very little maintenance required and turbine vents last a long time, they do age. You may notice certain indicators of age like rust, wear or making a small squeaky sound after a period of time – especially when they are exposed to heavy storms or humidity. Generally, all it takes to get rid of the squeak is a little bit of an oil like WD-40. However, the new, higher-quality turbine models usually don’t develop this problem.
Installing roof turbine vents involves intricate cutting around shingles, placement and the application of sealant. This type of installation is a job best left to the professionals.
