Benefits of Installing an Attic Fan
Attic fans are installed below your roof and are excellent at pulling hot air out of the attic and moving it out of your home. This lightens the load on your air conditioner and provides a number of other benefits, including:
- More comfortable home temperatures – Since your roof takes a direct beating from the sun every day, it is not uncommon for temperatures to reach 150 F—even on days when it’s only 80 F degrees outside. Vents can provide some passive cooling, but for best results, you should install an attic fan. On the hottest days, an attic fan can lower the temperature in your attic by up to 50 F, which translates into a 10 F reduction in your living area temperatures before the AC takes over.
- Extended roof life – Roofs are often damaged by moisture, which can come from places like showering and cooking as well as from faulty air conditioners and general humidity. Moist air will rise until it gets to the attic, where it will sit and eventually create mold in the insulation and wood structures of the attic. During the winter, this moisture can turn into ice or frost, causing even more problems. Attic fans reduce moisture and move it out of the attic before it has time to settle and do any damage.
- Reduced air conditioning costs – Attic fans help to reduce the temperature in your home, meaning your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard to keep things cool indoors. A 10-degree drop in temperature, commonly seen with attic fans, can reduce your cooling costs by as much as 30 percent!
