Attic Fan and Whole House Fan Installation
Save Money and Cool Your House More Efficiently
Attics are notorious for being very hot in summer. The direct sun on your roof radiates into the attic space and building up to a much higher temperature than the outside. In some cases, they may even rise as high as 130°F.
The heat trapped in the attic may cause a great problem for your insulation if there’s no proper ventilation in place.
While this is like having a big oven in your roof, attic fan and whole house fan installation can help if you’re looking for a smart and cost-effective solution to this intense heat.
Benefits of an Attic Fan or Whole House Fan
Attic Fan vs. Whole House Fan
Learn more about the difference between an attic fan and a whole house fan.
Attic fans can be installed inside the gable vent of outer walls where they may help lower your attic temperature anywhere from about 10 to 50 degrees by forcing out the hot air and forcing in new cooler air.
In many cases the air vents around the attic do not replace the attic air quick enough and your insulation is facing heat it was not meant to deal with. An attic fan helps replace the attic air with fresh and cooler air from outside, making the attic and your house cooler.
Whole House Fan
A whole house fan takes things further by not just pushing out hot air from inside the house into the attic but also drawing in cold air from the surrounding. The whole house fan is targeting the living space directly. Unlike the attic fan, the whole house fan replaces the indoor air directly and not the attic air.
The whole house fan may reduce your reliance on your air conditioning system by as much as 50% to 90%. It may also help to reduce energy costs considerably as well.
Cool your house in minutes using a whole house fan forcing fresh cool air in instead of the hot air it forces out through your attic. Instead of closing all windows in the house and pay a fortune for cooling, open them all and let the fan do its magic!
