Roof Ventilation is Vital for your Building!

Better Air, Better Buildings

Above all other options, air conditioning dominates the design of most conventional buildings. However, at Moffitt, we always tell people that while roof ventilation is vital for any building, air conditioning is not. That is why, for over 55 years, we have been designing natural roof ventilation systems. Gravity Roof Ventilation is the process of installing vents on the roof to remove heat that rises in warehouses and factories.

Roof Ventilation Drastically Improves Air Quality

Roof Ventilation

Roof Ventilation is important for two reasons: It can remove uncomfortable air, and it saves money on operating expenses as well.

Adding Comfort: Workers and machinery generate a lot of heat over time. While HVAC systems are great for pumping cold air into a system, they aren’t good at removing excess heat. The roof vents allow hot air to exhaust out of the building. Pressurizing the building can also optimize roof ventilation by use of intake vents or fans

Save on Operating Expenses: Not only does this keep your workers and your machines cool, but it will save you on the use of A/C. Either you don’t use A/C, and you rely on roof ventilation which will comfortably keep the temperature where it needs to be. Or you use both in tandem, and the roof ventilation will aid the HVAC.

Ambient Temperature Correction – HVAC systems work by sensing the temperature in an area and making sure that temperature is read throughout the building. If the heat can’t escape, the machine will constantly push to make the temperatures match.

Release Strain on the System – An HVAC machine that always runs takes a lot of strain and risk breaking. But by mediating temperatures through roof ventilation, you can give the HVAC the necessary breaks it needs.

Finally, compared to other ventilation systems such as the penthouse vent, the MoffittVent has a ridged design that makes it easier to keep rain out of the system. By using ridges and positive airflow, we are able to accommodate for rain and wind systems that often puncture through.
