Going to put in a solar roof vent and had was wondering whether under eave vents were really required.
I get the whole airflow thing but can I do without them? If the vent is set to maintain a roof temp of 20 degrees it will stop itself.
Also eave vents allow intake of cold air during winter which wouldn’t be a good thing as you’d want to keep your house warm.

I put in a Solar Ark sav-30. Was pretty pricey but they don’t have many installers around Sydney and the one that services my area lives quiet far so I’m guessing that’s part of the high installation cost.
It’s fully silent, can’t hear a thing. Does it work? Some days you can notice the difference upstairs but some days you can’t as heat still gets in via windows and other means. This is just the first step and hopefully I’ll be doing double glazing on my windows to help keep the heat out.

Yeah I've been checking the specs on roof sheeting to make sure I go with something that's good for 2 or 3 degrees. Need to work out water carrying capacity at those…
