WAYNE, N.J. - GAF, a roofing and ventilation manufacturer, announced the addition of Master Flow® Green Machine™ Solar Powered Ridge Vents to its line of ventilation products. This energy-efficient ridge vent delivers increased airflow over traditional ridge vents while still providing the superior aesthetic that ridge vents offer over powered roof vents.
While traditional ridge vents and roof louvers can often provide less airflow than powered roof vents, powered ventilation options are generally less attractive, require installation by electricians, and run using electricity which adds to their cost. Master Flow Green Machine Solar Powered Ridge Vents provide up to 25 times more airflow than traditional ridge vents while using solar power to eliminate the need for an electrician as well as any related energy costs. They also look great, with the low profile solar panels blending into the ridge line. Attic ventilation products are critical for a long-lasting roof. A properly balanced attic ventilation system will help to remove excess heat and moisture, protecting the roof from premature deterioration, minimizing peeling and extending the life of interior and exterior paint, limiting mold and mildew damage, and guarding against ice damming in the winter. Proper ventilation also can help to reduce excessive cooling costs.
