WHY ROOF SPACE HEAT MAY BE COSTING YOU THOUSANDS...

Roof space heat is a huge problem for homeowners across the country for a myriad of different reasons. Sadly, all paths essentially lead to the same destination – thousands of dollars in expensive repairs, replacements and other associated costs that can be an absolute nightmare to deal with. The good news is that not only do you not have to worry about the damaging effects of poor ventilation ever again, but also the solution provided by Solatube is a lot more efficient than you probably expected.

THE PROBLEM WITH ROOF SPACE HEAT: ONGOING CHALLENGES...

Ultimately, roof ventilation is essential when it comes to not only extending the life of your roof space, but also your roof itself. In the summer, hot air in the roof space can warp everything from floorboards to roof sheathing – the latter situation leading to deterioration of roof trusses over time. Even in the winter, an incorrectly ventilated roof space in the colder regions can lead to ice dams that cause wet or damaged insulation and other structural integrity problems.

Even if you’re not dealing with damage immediately, you’re faced with something even worse – decay. All of this leads to costly repairs and replacements, all of which could have been avoided had you been proactive about roof space ventilation in the first place. The Solar Star Roof Ventilation system helps neutralise moisture in your roof space, keeping it cool in summer and protecting it during the winter.

HIGH UTILITY COSTS...

You don’t live in the roof space, so excessive heat build-up during summer shouldn’t be a worry, right? Wrong. Roof space heat sits above your living areas like an oppressive blanket, creating an unwanted thermal layer that maintains above average temperatures on the floor below. This heat creates uncomfortably hot rooms that you have to live in. You also can’t rely on your evaporative air conditioning to remove the heat from the living areas. Ductwork passes through your roof space before meeting the ceiling vents. This cool air has to pass through the heat, meaning greater effort to maintain cool air, which is reflected in higher cooling bills.

SOLAR STAR FROM SOLATUBE...

Solatube has designed a number of roof ventilation products designed to stop this from happening. The high-efficiency Solar Star, for example, is completely solar driven – which means that you get all of the benefits of proper ventilation without the increased operational costs of other techniques. You also get the benefit of less noise than traditional options like a Whirlybird.

You also have access to an optional thermal switch, which automatically turns the Solar Star’s fan off when the temperature in your roof space dips below 18 degrees. When the temperature exceeds 29 degrees, the fan also kicks on automatically – requiring no effort on your part beyond installation.

Best of all, the Solar Star is an incredibly straightforward piece of equipment to install – usually in less than an hour – and you don’t have to worry about electrical hook-ups, installation fees or other costs eating into the savings you thought you were getting. You get to sit back, enjoy worry-free operation all year round, and never again have to wonder if roof space heat is literally siphoning money out of your bank account. The Solar Star Roof Ventilation system is also backed by a 5-year warranty on the solar panel and a full 10-year warranty on the motor and all other parts.

On Monday 29th we had two Velux reps come to the factory to do some product and installation training so we keep up-to-date and current with the new VELUX Skylight technologies. (Even though Mick has been installing them for 5 years) Webelieve it's very important we keep ahead of our competition and one can never have too much training.
