Why install a power attic fan?
Consider this: air trapped in your attic can easily reach 150˚ or more. Left untreated, that heat finds its way into your home, increasing the load on your air conditioner. Power attic fans are designed to remove this hot air from you attic and can lower the attic temperature by as much as 60 degrees. Attic ventilation is critical to lowering energy bills and making you home comfortable. By installing a power attic fan on you home you can:
- Add life to your air conditioning unit by not making it work as hard
- lower the cost to cool your home
- Lengthen roof life by keeping shingles cooler
- Add resale value to your home
According to studies by the Home Ventilation Institute homeowners may experience up to a 30% savings on air conditioning costs with a powered attic fan. The study indicates that air conditioners don’t have to run as often when it isn’t fighting a hot attic.
So the real question is…..Why not install a power attic fan??
