Cooling Your Home With Solar
When it comes to cooling your home, you probably didn’t realize you could do so using solar power. While solar energy is commonly used to generate electricity in homes, it has evolved so that homeowners can now harness the sun to power low-cost and environmentally friendly cooling systems. At Byers, we can help you achieve clean, fresh, and cool air inside your home by installing products manufactured by Solatube®, one of the most respected manufacturers of innovative cooling and lighting products in the nation.
Improve Your Comfort While Reducing Your Carbon Footprint
When the air inside your home and attic is stagnant, it can start to feel a little stuffy and warm, causing your HVAC system to work harder than it should to keep temperatures comfortable. Not only that, but if your attic is overheating, your roofing materials, insulation, and wooden support structures will deteriorate, weakening the integrity of your roof and causing a host of other problems. The good news is that Solatube products installed by the experts at Byers Solar can help prevent this from happening. The following products are excellent options for cooling your home with solar energy:
Whole House Fans
Traditional air conditioning simply cools recirculated, stagnant air in the house; a whole house fan uses the power of the sun to replace that air with cool, fresh air over and over again. Designed to augment your home’s HVAC system, whole house fans will improve the comfort inside your home and improve its energy efficiency, while also reducing your carbon footprint.
Solar-Powered Attic Fans
On the other hand, solar attic fans remove warm, humid air from your attic. They cost nothing to operate, are virtually maintenance-free, and don’t require electrical wiring, which makes them easy to install.
