Improve the comfort, efficiency, and longevity of your home by removing hot air and moisture from your attic
By removing excess heat in your attic, you can be more comfortable in your home, reduce energy usage, and save money. Additionally, you can protect your investment by removing moisture build-up year-round.
- Remove heat and moisture
- Reduce energy usage
- Protect your home and roof
- Reduce premature aging of roof shingles
Cools your attic and reduces energy usage in the summer months
Attic temps can reach 160 degrees or more in the summer. These elevated temperatures can have devastating effects on you roof, interior comfort, and the overall health of your home.
Installing a gable-mounted Solar Powered Attic Fan will help remove the heat build-up in your attic and bring your attic’s temperature down closer to the ambient outside temperature.
The reduction in attic temperature will also benefit the homeowner by preserving and extending the life of the roofing and attic construction materials. Additionally, hot air in your attic can then heat the metal exterior of your HVAC ductwork and consequently heat the air passing through it, causing your air conditioner to work even harder.
- Reduce A/C usage by cooling your attic
- Be more comfortable in your home
- Reduce energy usage
- Reduce the initial blast of hot air coming from overheated air ducts
Removes moisture and reduces mold in the winter months
In the winter months, the building materials in your attic can absorb up to 28 gallons of moisture, contributing to mold and mildew growth. Moisture migrates into the attic space from daily activities such as running the dishwasher, showers and cooking. Additionally, warm attic air meeting the cold roofing materials creates condensation, which drips onto the attic insulation causing it to lose its effectiveness. Warm attics in winter also contribute to ice damming as the snow melts on the roof and re-freezes at the eaves, causing water to accumulate.
Installing a Solar Powered Attic Fan will allow for better air flow and moisture control inside your attic and prevent the condensation which can lead to mold and mildew problems.
