The enemy of a healthy, comfortable home in winter is moisture, and the Twista roof ventilator is the eco-friendly solution to the problem of mould and mildew, as well as the deterioration of building materials.
Remove Moisture & Fight Mould
Mould thrives in cool, dark, damp conditions, which is what winter is all about. It is an unsightly problem, but can have more serious implications; mould in your home can produce allergic reactions and respiratory problems. Some moulds produce mycotoxins that can pose serious, potentially lethal, health risks to your family.
Removing moisture is the key to preventing the growth of mould. In our bathrooms and kitchens we usually do this with the use of extractor fans, which remove steam from the room, keeping it dry. The result, however, is abundant moisture in the roof cavity, and on the ceiling; add to this the condensation that forms with the roof cavity during winter frosts, and you have a perfectly, dark, cool, and wet place for mould to flourish.
Save Building Materials from Damage
The removal of moisture from the roof cavity can also save money on costly maintenance of building materials. Excessive moisture can damage the metal and timber support structure of your home, by speeding up corrosion and decay, and encouraging the presence of termites. Maintaining and replacing such structures is a costly exercise, so keeping your roof cavity dry with the help of Twista roof ventilators can save you plenty of money in the long-run.
