In the colder winter months, moisture from everyday activities inside the house can enter the roof cavity. Without proper ventilation, this moisture promotes mold and mildew, saturates insulation. In the summer, heat from the roof cavity can radiate down into your living area making the air conditioner work harder to cool your home. If air conditioning ducting runs in the attic, a hot attic will superheat the ducting and the conditioned air inside making the air conditioner less efficient.
Most (but not all) roofs have some form of static ventilation. Static vents or ridge vents will help but generally do not provide sufficient air movement to pull heat and moisture from the attic – especially during the winter or when the ambient air is stagnate.

Our Customers’ Experiences
Through our thorough investigations of solar companies, we decided to install with SolarBright. Though they weren’t the cheapest, nor the most expensive, we based our decision on longevity in the business, resolutions to product reviews and the abundance of knowledge by their representative.
We have been very happy with the service provided and have no hesitations in recommending the company for any solar installations.
With my electricity costs due to increase by more than 30%, I required a viable and quick solution. The professional team at SolarBright were first class in listening to my requirements and providing me the correct solution. The purchase and installation of my new solar system was performed within 7 days.
I have already started to save money. I highly recommend SolarBright.
We just had a Maxlight 400mm (skylight) installed. What a difference it has made, even when it was raining today we could see the difference. I had popped into Solarbright and meet Michael. He explained all our options, went through the differences in the diffusers and gave me a quote. Could not have been easier…The service was very prompt and professional , the house was left clean.
All in all a great decision. Would highly recommend SolarBright.
