Cut humidity down by allowing your attic to breath.
Why we recommend installing an attic fan in your attic. It seems like a rather bizarre thing to do, doesn’t it? You insulate your attic only to let cold air in. But it’s all done with a purpose of achieving a fully functioning energy efficient home. If you have good ventilation through your attic come winter it will stop snow melting from the attic being too warm and refreezing. This can damage your gutters and roof which will be costly to fix later on. It also allows for cooler flow of air in the summer to stop the buildup of heat making your home unbearably to hot.
How the attic fan works.
It’s a very simple process that really makes the difference and it’s achieved by drawing in cool air and circulating it through the attic and out of vents to keep a consistent air flow. Any trapped hot air will be dispelled through the vents so this will cut humidity down which can cause mold issues and the attic will be kept dry. The whole focus is by cooling the attic in the summer you use less air conditioning to cool the house because you don’t need it as much.
What our attic fan installers do.
First thing our team likes to do is inspect to see if your attic vents are sufficient, they will go around the perimeter of the attic to make sure no fiberglass is blocking them and to also look for any mold issues that might be occurring. The insulation must also be checked to make sure it’s not covering any recessed light fixtures. The attic fan will be installed where it seems best appropriate. There are different attic fans on the market and they all cost various price points. Our Attic fan installer will talk to you about the cost of each product and which one they recommend is best for your attic. Once chosen they will set about the task of installing it and connecting it all up for you.
It makes sense to have an attic fan installed and our attic fan sales team can talk to you more about the benefits. Not only will it cool your attic but it will also improve the life of your shingles on the roof by keeping the roof cooler.
