In terms of ceiling and roof ventilation a whirlybird does a great job. Over the hot summer months hot and humid air gets trapped under the ceiling and cannot exit to the outdoors. This makes your air conditioning work a lot harder, and costs you more due to higher energy costs. Whirlybirds are excellent for the removal of heat trapped in the roof cavity of your house or building during the hot summer.
In the winter months moist air can become trapped under the ceiling and in the roof cavity leading to mildew or mould and other moisture related problems. Whirlybirds effectively remove moisture trapped in the roof cavity and under the ceiling of a home or building in winter.
Essentially a whirlybird is an aluminium wind driven turbine roof ventilator. A well-known design is the Edmonds Windmaster, which is designed to exhaust heat and moisture from the roof space of a home or building.
The Edmonds Windmaster is constructed from aluminium, is very light-weight and has a classic design combined with high tech features for long lasting performance. The Edmonds Windmaster brings comfort to your home or building for the long term without the use of any electrical energy, so no running costs and they come with a 15 year warranty.
Key benefits of a Whirlybird are:
The Edmonds Windmaster is suitable for most roof types and they are available in 28 colours to suit most roof colour options. Although they can be installed by a home handyperson, it is better to get a professional to install them and ensure water tightness and correct function.
