  4. 4. Natural convective air flow develops in an air space created between a roof product and the roof sheathing Buoyancy forces from heated air create a flow from eave to ridge Air flow dissipates heat build-up and reduces heat gain through the roof sheathing when compared to direct nailed roof products with no air space 4
  5. 5. ! " Offset mounting Batten and counter batten sub- framing is common practice for some roof products Continuous air space is created from eave to ridge Profiled roofing products create space above the deck Special sandwiched sheathing products are available with space designed into them Batten/Counter-Batten Frame 5

  12. 12. # ( (- (a) As air temperature under the roof surface increases, heated air rises toward the ridge and draws cooler air into the system through vented eave. (b) Heated air exhausts through the vented ridge assembly. High profile roofing products allow more heated air to exhaust through ridge vent. 12

Above Sheathing Ventilation alone causes a 30-50% reduction in heat gain, compared to dark asphalt shingle direct-to-deck Range from metal vs. tile roofing Reduction in heat gain is equivalent to 15 points of solar reflectance Combining ASV with cool surfaces reduces the heat gain even more 28
