Too often words are used entirely in the wrong context, let’s say a play on words. What does using the word green in front of roof ventilators actually reference to? Well, it’s much the same as loosely using the words free range, organic, gluten free etc, etc. All these words are loosely used much the same as green roof ventilators.
Companies that make claims to the word of green in front of roof ventilation should ensure that their claims are demonstrated to proven scientific evidence.
JUST CLAIMING THE WORD GREEN DOES NOT MAKE FOR A GREEN PRODUCT
What constitutes a green product?
To meet criteria for a green product they should be sustainable – using products manufactured from a resource that is not depleted or permanently damaged. They should be eco-friendly – showing concern for the environment. They should be energy efficient – energy efficiency – being able to reduce the amount of energy used by large appliances in the home. Recycling: green products should be able to be recycled when they reach the end of their lifespan.
Most information available on green products does not address the retrofitting of existing products – however the four main principles of criteria should be addressed when considering retrofitting green products to the home.
CONSIDERING ALL THE PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET CLAIMING TO BE GREEN, ECO, SUSTAINABLE, ORGANIC
Quite an amount of these products have been created and live up to these claims. However the boundaries have been stretched, as quite often some products claiming to be green, eco, sustainable and organic simply do not meet the criteria to claim the use of these words. So ask the questions filter the answers when considering building a new home and purchasing roof ventilation products or retrofitting products into an existing home.
So therefore it would be desirable to use a product for green roof ventilation that creates no greenhouse gas emissions, that has no moving parts to wear out, no filters to replace and will last as long as your roof or longer being recyclable at the end of its life. Meeting all criteria for a green product.
