The usefulness of roof vents

Proper ventilation requires the effective removal of polluted air and the supply of fresh outside air. Roof vents are ideal for this purpose. Roof vents are often used in rooms with high humidity, such as kitchens and bathrooms. Also, in rooms where there is no central ventilation system, a fan is often installed and the polluted air is exhausted through a roof vent. Roof vents are also used to remove odours and gases.

What types of roof vents are there?

Roof vents come in many varieties. Some types of roof vents are suitable for extracting air, while others are also suitable for supplying air. Intovent has several types of roof vents in its range. Suitable for both flat and pitched roofs. Select by diameter, brand and material to find the right roof vent. Would you like tailored advice? Please contact our customer service department.

Roof vent mechanical ventilation

The essence of mechanical ventilation is that the air is refreshed automatically. Clean air is supplied and polluted air is extracted. Many mechanical ventilation systems are connected to a roof vent. It is important that the roof vent is suitable for both ventilation and exhaustion. The Intovent range offers several options in a variety of diameters.

Roof vent MVHR

Is the roof vent to be used with an MVHR unit? Then choose an insulated roof vent. An insulated roof vent ensures that condensation does not form, preventing water from entering the roof vent. Condensation forms because the outside air is colder than the inside air. The roof vent specifications detail the functionality of each MVHR roof vent.
