Do whirlybirds and solar vents work?

The whirlybird is a great way to improve the ventilation of your home on the Gold Coast or throughout Australia. Here the hot summers are known to build up humidity inside the home.

While air conditioning can cool down the air inside your home, it doesn’t always remove the humidity in the air. This can be a big problem if you’re a fan of fresh air and need your home to be as airy and comfortable as possible. The whirlybird will provide fresh air that’s cooler and drier, which will help you enjoy fresh air all year round.

Whirlybirds are ventilation devices that come in a number of different styles and shapes and can be used for a variety of applications such as removing odours, air pollution control, and ventilation.

Manufacturers often try to stand out through their warranty periods, but this is really just a clever marketing tool. If you have any issues after installation, contact AllCoast Roofing directly and we’ll assist you.

Reviews of our Whirlybirds

Had a whirlybird removed and a new one installed by Allcoast Roofing Service - very happy with their service and workmanship. They replied to me quickly with a quote, suggested whirlybird colours to match my roof, and provided a timeframe for installation (which was met!). Installation was a breeze and the new whirlybird looks great. Thanks Wayne, appreciate your great service

Whirlybird installation and cost

The SupaVent brand is preferred by us at AllCoast. It’s ideal for tiled roofs, needing only one tile to be removed for installation. The UV and temperature-stable light-weight plastic head, with its 250mm opening and stainless-steel bearings, provides a good alternative to WindMaster Whirlybirds and are ideal for homes affected by salt air. It’s also suitable for all roof types including asphalt, metal, and composite.

The cost for SupaVent whirlybird installation can vary depending on roof height, tin or tile. The cost is approximately $495 inc. GST.

If you live in an area with little wind we recommend a Solar Roof Ventilator. The cost is approximately $990 inc. GST.

Can they reduce your home electricity bill?

Yes, they can!

Are you tired of paying exorbitant electricity bills every month? You’re not alone – and that’s why there is a growing trend in the world of renewable energy, which is powering homes all over the world with no fuel required. Solar power and wind energy are two of the best ways to ventilate your home that don’t need any fuel.

How Many Whirlybirds Do I Need?

The number of Whirlybirds ventilation you need depends on the size of your roof and the temperature outside. There are no fixed rules or recommendations on how many whirlybirds should be used in your roof. We recommend that you get a free quote from AllCoast Roofing. You don’t want to go overboard with them because it can become costly.

The cost of a project will vary depending on how many people you will need to work with, as well as the scope of the project. Some projects may only require one installer, whereas others may require a number of our team.

Can I still use Whirlybirds under these conditions?

My Area has little wind.

Whirlybirds are intended for windy areas and will not work in areas with little wind. We suggest that you invest in a more reliable ventilation system like a Solar Roof Ventilator.

My house is small.

Whirlybirds are a type of ventilation system that does not require much space, typically only one tile needs to be removed to install a whirlybird. 

So, do whirlybirds work and what are the benefits of using them?

Whirlybirds are an excellent means of ventilation. They help air flow and keep the air clean and fresh. They are an effective way to bring fresh air into the home, reducing static electricity buildup on floors, walls and furniture.

Wayne and his expert roofing team are the ideal trades team. From the initial call for a quote to the follow up after the job was complete Wayne and AllCoast roofing were a delight to deal with. The quote was not the cheapest or the most expensive but the finished product I have no doubt is the best possible. Our roof was checked over, an accurate assessment made, and value-for money quote provided. Then the very thorough cleaning, repointing and renovation work, and finally painting were all carried out by their respective tradesmen in a thorough and professional way. After dealing with a few other trades for other services I can honestly say AllCoast roofing is the best in the business! Thank you Wayne and team, I love my updated roof!
