Your attic plays a vital role in the energy efficiency of your home. Essentially, it’s the reason why you continuously have to adjust your thermostat to a cooler temperature when it’s hot outside and grimace in despair every time you get your energy bill in the mail. If your attic is absorbing the heat energy from your roof, it’s not trapping that heat inside its space but rather conducting it down into your home. This is why your home feels hot and stifling in the summer, and why it’s crucial to find a workable solution to cool your attic.
Cool Your Attic With a Solar Attic Fan
A solar attic fan is an outstanding solution to help cool your attic. A solar attic fan works by pushing out the hot air from your attic and cooling your attic space. (In some cases, by as much as 40 degrees!) And, since it’s powered by the sun, it runs exactly when it needs to: when the sun is out and beating down on your home. It doesn’t come with additional wiring or require power. Furthermore, it won’t add any extra cost to your energy bill and, in fact, should be able to reduce it since you won’t need to run your air conditioner at such a high level anymore.
