The summer months are rapidly approaching, and in certain parts of the United Stated, this can mean some extremely hot temperatures!
Read below to learn how you can beat the summer heat this year.
The combination of direct summer sun beating down on your home and lack of adequate ventilation can significantly raise the temperatures in your attic. Eventually, the heat trapped in the attic will then transfer into other rooms in your home, making your everyday living spaces hot and uncomfortable.
While the typical remedy to the summer heat is usually blasting the air conditioning, this can be very expensive.
If you’ve ever found yourself thinking or Google searching questions like “How do I cool down a hot room?” or “Why is inside my house always hotter than outside?” Then it’s possible that your home has poor ventilation and a Solar-Powered Attic Fan could be the saving solution this summer.
Attic fans are a low cost and low maintenance addition to traditional air conditioning. They work by cooling and ventilation the space, bringing attics to outside temperatures instead of allowing them to warm to extreme temperatures. They’re also environmentally friendly and energy-efficient, relying solely on solar power.
Absolutely! Attic Fans are specifically designed to properly ventilate to reduce both heat and moisture.
They operate by pulling hot air out through a roof vent, drawing in cooler outdoor air through existing vents located along with the soffits (on the underside of the roof overhang).
New air then comes in through the windows and circulated throughout your entire home.
Yes! The process can be accomplished very quickly, cooling your living spaces down within the span of minutes and lowering the temperatures in your home by up to 30 degrees.
The exchange of stale, warm air for fresh, cool air alleviates pressure (and ultimately, cost) put on your air conditioner.
They sure do! Solatube Attic Fans use a brushless motor and lightweight, non-corrosive fan blades designed with quietness in mind. By harnessing the sun’s energy, the Attic Fans use no electricity to effectively ventilate your home, and their whisper-quiet operation won’t interfere with your day.
Yes! Solatube Solar Attic Fans are powered entirely by the sun, and so they cost nothing to operate once installed.
And while the solar power component can greatly reduce your utility bills and save energy, a solar attic fan can also save you money in less obvious ways. For example:
Another added bonus? You can get a 26% Federal Tax Credit on purchase and installation. Talk about a deal!
No. The beauty of the Attic Fan is that it has year-round benefits. No matter what the season, airing out your home is important to maintain a healthy air environment.
When the temperature outside begins to drop, activities that you conduct in your home, like cooking, showering, laundry, running humidifiers, all generate humidity. The excessive moisture then makes it way up to the attic and gets trapped. The trapped humidity can then rot away the supporting beams of your attic, causing roof damage and mold, mildew and fungus growth.
Installing a Solatube Attic Fan has the potential to save you and your family thousands in home repairs and utility bills. They can make your air conditioner run more effectively and smoothly, while also purifying the natural air in your home. Their self-sufficient, solar-powered nature also allows you to feel like you’re doing your part for the planet, which can be incredible rewarding.
