Reduced energy consumption
Whirlybirds suck up warm air into the air giving your home a cooler temperature, which means that you are less likely to use the airconditioning system. It can reduce the energy consumption rate to 50%. It has low running costs, which makes it a viable option for smaller homes and apartments. You can also combine it with another ventilation system for better results.
Whirlybirds provide better air quality to your home. The turbine spins continuously to ensure good airflow in your home. It allows hot air to evaporate naturally, which makes an ideal roof insulator. As warm air rises, the whirlybirds extract the heat and replaces it with cooler air.
Inadequate ventilation can lead to high moisture levels in your windows and walls. It can also result in leaks, molds and stale air.
The high moisture level in some parts of the roof structure can negatively impact the structure of your home. Whirlybirds can reduce condensation or lessen moisture keeping your home cooler and more comfortable. Moreover, there are also other ways on how you can ensure proper ventilation in your home, such as:
There are many types of artificial shading that you can use in your homes, such as pergolas, eaves, shutters and curtains. These can reduce the heat index in your home and also improve the appearance of your home.
Choose the right paint for the roof and walls. Lighter color has cooling properties, while darker paint is hotter.
Insulating the walls can reduce heat in your home. Uninsulated homes can get hot up to 35% during the summer.
Keep your windows open for fresh air to come in. Choose light-coloured curtains with thinner fabric so that air can effectively get through.
