Your roof still needs attention even if there is no leak right away because the exposed section of the roof is compromised and not designed to perform when shingles are damaged.

I consider getting new solar vents installed on my shingle roof will it reduce energy bill cost?
Solar attic vents can reduce the cost of your energy bill during the summer. On hot days, heat is retained inside the attic until it reaches expansion (around 72 degrees Celsius), at which point heat will radiate throughout the attic and into the house. In older houses, this problem is more severe due to the lack of soffit vents (in some cases, there are none). Solar-powered vents will force hot air out drastically, reducing the temperature and improve the efficiency of your air conditioning system. The system will not need to work as hard saving, the homeowner money on energy costs over the years. Adding a solar-powered vent to your home is a simple way to make your home environmentally friendly. Solar attic vents will eliminate the risk of poor ventilation, increase the lifespan of the wood and shingles in your home, and save the homeowner money on their energy bill. We are confident about the advantage of solar technology.
