Ventilation inside your shed is important, all year round, more so during the cooler months as you are probably not opening windows or going inside as often.
Ventilation provides a good airflow and it is important for your shed to prevent mildew and moss building up. Also, if you are storing chemicals, fuel and oils, paints, paint thinners etc you can make yourself sick while inside working on other projects if the ventilation is poor.
To avoid any issues good shed ventilation is important inside your garden shed in Sydney.
You need to ensure you have all the correct accessories installed. Even if you are only using your shed for storage, good vents in your shed are important. Without good ventilation your shed can fall victim to mildew and mould.
There are two types of vents that work well – wall vents and ridge vents.
Wall vents let fresh air in and dirty air out. Adding a few wall vents to your garden shed in Sydney will allow for the regular circulation of air – in and out of the shed giving the inside of your shed, and the items stored inside all the air circulation they need.

Ridge vents – depending on the style of your shed you may need a ridge vent. Ridge vents are installed at the peak of a sloped roof. This style of vent allows for air to escape through the ceiling, which makes it perfect for large and tall sheds. If you have a large workshop style shed, you may need a few ridge vents installed.
Vented skylights – if you are looking to add some light and some air a venting skylight might be what you need. Adding this style of accessory will allow extra light into your shed as well as providing some good circulation.
Window – well a window or two never hurts, when you want both extra lighting and ventilation. Windows are a great addition to a shed as they create airflow, allow light in, and make your shed look even more attractive.
Whirlybirds – if you want some extra airflow inside your garden shed a whirlybird roof vent or a turbine air vent are an option. The turbine is activated by a slight breeze inside the turbine it then pulls out the hot air. The hot air is then replaced by cooler air that enters from the lower areas of the shed. Turbines are perfect if you have a shed that experiences a lot of mildew causing condensation, or your regularly work with chemicals. Of course, depending on the size of your shed a simple ceiling fan can also create the same effect. If you need some occasional air circulation a small free standing or desk fan can do the trick.
