When it comes to counteracting the heat in the summer, there is only so much a typical air conditioner can do. In fact, where we reside in California, PG&E tiered power rates are some of the highest in the nation, meaning even a well-working air conditioning unit will cost you a great deal of money to operate. Therefore, it is to your advantage as a homeowner to discover alternative ways, other than your traditional air conditioning, to cool your home down and ensure comfort during the summer months.
Keeping Your Home Cooler with Innovative Alternatives
Whole House Fan
One way to lower your A/C bills and to keep your space not only comfortably cool but full of fresh air is a whole house fan. In fact, the whole house fan by Solatube is said to save up to 91% off A/C-related costs on average. This energy-efficient fan provides relaxing nights, cooler days, and a healthier home overall. Although it is ideally suited to keep your home cool in the summer, it also provides refreshment the entire year-round by eliminating stale air in the winter months. It is extremely quiet, meaning it is not intrusive or disruptive to your way of life and will quickly cool your space in the hot, uncomfortable summer months.
A whole house fan works to cool your home and attic by up to 30 degrees and sometimes more. It utilizes the principle of Thermal Mass Cooling through innovative technology and works immensely better than traditional air conditioning to not only bring the air in your home’s temperature down but to cool the structure itself along with its contents. This means that your home will perpetually stay cooler, even the following day. The main way that the whole house fan works is by preventing hot air from getting trapped inside your home and further heating up the interior. Instead, hot air is flushed out and replaced with clean, cooler air.
Another way to save money on cooling your home during the uncomfortably warm summer month is an attic fan by Solatube. This ultra-quiet attic fan is powered by the sun and utilizes advanced motor technologies with a progressive design. The result is a well-ventilated system that removes hot air from your attic, providing a more comfortable environment within your home. In essence, it is pulling the hot air out, reducing or eliminating the oven-type effect of sitting over your head. Not only does it keep your home cooler, but it also can prolong the life of your air conditioner and your roof, saving you replacement costs. If you act now, you can take advantage of a 26% Federal Tax Credit offer, which will help offset the cost of installation and get you saving money faster.
