Anyone who has ever gone up in their attic during the summer knows that it can hot…very hot! Temperatures can reach a sweltering 150F. Though you may be only up there for a few minutes, the heat can linger for a long time. This excessive heat can make it much harder for your air conditioner to cool the rest of the house. More lingering heat means more energy is required to cool your home.
You can reduce your energy costs and help your house stay cooler by installing an attic fan. Surfside Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. offers attic fan installation services throughout the San Diego County region. Attic fans help you save big on your energy costs!
Benefits of an Attic Fan
Reduce Air Conditioning Expense. Everyone wants to avoid sticker shock on their energy bill every month! Because attic fans reduce the upstairs temperature in your home, this can have a direct effect on your total energy consumption. A ten-degree reduction in your living area temperature can reduce energy expenses up to 30 percent.
Extended roof life. Many household activities, such as showering and cooking, create moisture that rises and accumulates in your attic. This moisture can cause mold to grow in the insulation and even the wood, which can severely lessen the life of your roof. An attic fan can move the moisture out of the attic before it damages the wood and insulation.
Lower your home temperatures. With an attic fan operating, your attic temperature can be reduced by 30 degrees or more. This reduced attic temperature means lower temperatures in all other rooms of your home. Who doesn’t want to stay cool when the thermometer passes 80!
