An attic fan can do many things for your home.
We all know that during the warmer times of the year, your attic will get hot. This is not always a worry, but sometimes it is. During the hottest part of the day, your attic can reach temperatures between 150 and 160 degrees. Over time, this can cause large amounts of humidity to build up and cause damage to your roof and other things that might be stored there, not to mention creating a potential breeding ground for mold. Also having that much heat in your attic allows it to seep into your home, causing your AC to work much harder to cool your home.
An attic fan is a simple solution to alleviate excess heat. What an attic fan does is pull cooler air from outside and push the hot air out of your attic space. It utilizes the natural air outside to help cool the space. Running an attic fan during the hottest part of the day can reduce the heat in your attic by as much as 50 degrees!
Lowering the temperature of your attic with an attic fan can save you on your energy costs for cooling your home as well as help prevent a lot of humidity from building in your attic space. The energy cost of running an attic fan during the hottest part of the day will pay for itself with less energy used to cool your home.
