Conservatory Ventilation

With proper planning, operable accessories can provide ventilation. The inclusion of doors, windows, ridge vents, and eave vents can aid in air exchange and provide proper air quality and cooling.

The use of ridge vents reduces the chance that the conservatory will overheat. A ridge vent is located at the roof’s highest point, allowing hot air to escape as it rises. Ridge vents are opened via a motor or a pole operator. Unlike windows, multiple bays can be joined together and an entire roof line can open.

When windows are opened cool air is drawn into the conservatory, forcing hot air out of the structure through ridge vents. The fresh air is typically cooler than the air inside the conservatory, thus lowering the temperature in the structure.

With the use of these systems, air moving into the conservatory assists in circulation and temperature balancing within the conservatory.
