These Attic Fan Benefits Will Serve You Well This Summer

Considering how long and hot Florida summers are, you may want to look for ways to keep your home comfortable and energy-efficient. Attic fans are one of the available solutions. Let’s dive deeper into attic fan benefits.

How Do Attic Fans Work?

In the summer, the attic temperature can reach between 150 and 160 degrees — significantly hotter than the temperature outside. An attic fan draws hot and humid air from the attic space and pushes it outside. By removing excessive heat buildup, the fan helps cool your attic space.

Reduced Workload on Your Air Conditioner

The hotter your attic is, the warmer your house will be in the summer. The higher temperatures cause an increased load on your air conditioner. Removing the excessive heat sitting in your attic space helps lower the temperature of your entire home. This reduces the need to make your air conditioner go into overdrive, which increases your energy savings.

Lower the Temperature in Upper Rooms

Rooms on the second floor of a home can feel warmer than the rooms below. That could be because of the attic heat radiating down into them. An attic fan can help keep your upstairs cooler and more comfortable.

Support Your Roof

Heat and humidity can cause mold growth and deplete your attic insulation. By providing ventilation, an attic fan helps protect your insulation and roof.

Run a Fan for Free

If you install a solar-powered attic fan, it won’t cost you any money to run it. What’s more, solar fans come with long warranties.

To fully take advantage of attic fan benefits, make sure your attic is air sealed or insulated properly. For more information about attic fan benefits, contact NisAir Air Conditioning and Heating.
