What is an Attic Fan?
These fans are designed for your attic and can be controlled from a thermostat. Meaning it only operates when it is required. They are not expensive and will save you money in the long run. Attic fans are typically installed in slope or roof of your attic and can be either electrical or solar powered.
Why Install an Attic Fan?
During the warmer months your attic temperature can reach up to 130 degrees. An attic that is not properly ventilated can cause roof shingles to deteriorate and even increase your energy bill by having your cooling system work harder. This heat can make it warmer in rooms located on the 2nd level of your home and potentially shorten the life on your roof. Virginia is known for having hot summers which makes it harder to fight the heat by simply turning up your cooling system.
