Help Your Wood Framed Structure Last Longer With Rooftop Gravity Vents

Homes and other wooden structures must be properly vented in order to prevent a number of problems from occurring in attics and other spaces not part of the standard living or working area. When insufficient airflow is present, the structure may be at risk due to excessive moisture levels and/or temperatures. One issue that can arise is the warping of roof beams, which can lead to buckling. The HVAC system can also become compromised because insulation is most effective within a specific temperature range, unfortunately, it becomes very ineffective when wet. This can result in the HVAC system having to work harder since heat and cold from above can penetrate down through matted insulation and the ceiling into the inhabited areas below. A less efficient HVAC system also uses more energy to do the same job which is not good for the environment or the wallet.


Therefore, rooftop gravity vents or gravity flow roof vents are a great way to maintain proper airflow in a variety of structures, hopefully preventing any problems from ever arising. These unpowered venting apparatuses introduce fresh air without needing electrical hookups. Bristolite offers robust, durable roof vents that feature heliarc welded aluminum frames and opaque or translucent fiberglass hoods. The units are offered as self flashing or curb mounted assemblies that allow for installation on a variety of roofs.
