Cooling and lighting are important considerations when having an attic storage solution installed. A dual purpose turbo beam whirlybird roof ventilator and lighting system is an ideal choice for these requirements.
An important point to keep in mind when having an attic storage solution installed is to minimise the heat it traps. Excessive heat is a common problem with most roofing spaces, which of course includes attic storage spaces. In fact, attics can become intolerably hot in the summer months, making them unsuitable for heat-sensitive items if not addressed.
Attic heat is also transferred into the rooms below which increases the costs involved in the used of air conditioning. However, there is a simple and effective way to largely eliminate these issue. This involves the installation of a roof ventilation system.

Enter the Roof Ventilator
Roof ventilators help substantially reduce roof space and attic storage temperatures during the hot summer months. They also protect your attic space from costly deterioration during wet winters. So regardless of which season of the year applies, a good quality roof ventilation system is an excellent investment.
The most popular type of roof ventilation systems are of the Whirlybird roof ventilator type, used in Australia for decades. They are designed to remove heat from your attic using convection currents. There are two basic types of whirlybird roof ventilators, these bring the active, powered type and the passive, wind-driven type.
The Wind-driven Whirlybird Roof Ventilator
The wind-driven type of whirlybird roof ventilator harnesses wind and expanding air to cool the roof space. These are popular because they are inexpensive compared to the powered type.
The effectiveness of whirlybird roof ventilators is measured according to air flow capacity. This varies from make and model and wind speeds in the area they are being used. For example, where area winds speeds average 12 kph, a standard air-powered whirlybird has the ability to move anything from 8 to 150 cubic metres of air per hour.
The greatest benefit of whirlybird roof ventilators is that they are inexpensive to install and run. I can supply and install you a standard whirlybird from $165 when installing attic ladders or attic storage. Further, because wind-driven type roof ventilators don’t require power, they cost nothing to run on an ongoing basis.
Go for quality and professional installation
When getting an attic storage solution, pay just a little more to have a ventilation and light Whirlybird installed. This type both ventilates your attic and acts as a natural skylight. These are my most popular whirlybirds I install and cost only $220 fully installed.
Be sure to have your Whirlybird roof ventilator installed by a professional roof or attic specialist. They have the skills and experience to install it for best cooling and lighting in the space.
