Keeping your house cool in the summer can seem like fighting an uphill battle. Even with an air conditioning system in your home, if it isn't running efficiently you can still find it's hard to beat the heat. If your air conditioning is mounted in your attic, one reason for this inefficiency is having a build-up of heat in your attic which can affect the performance of your air conditioner. As the heat in your home rises it gets trapped in your attic, with temperatures sometimes doubling in poorly ventilated attics. A professionally fit attic fan can help remove this excess heating, cooling your attic and the rest of your home.
Attic fans are a great way to help keep your home cool and comfortable, removing the heat from your attic space that gathers through the hottest parts of the day. There is a wide selection of attic fans available that can cater for all kinds of roof shapes and roofing materials. There are also different sizes available depending on the space inside your attic, with high flow fans available for large attic spaces. These fans are designed specifically to quickly and efficiently remove the hot air as it develops, while still keeping the correct air pressure within your attic.
Although it seems like a simple process, removing hot air from your attic to keep the rest of your house cool, there can be quite a number of benefits from this. As mentioned earlier, if your air conditioning is mounted in the attic, having active ventilation from an attic fan is a great way to improve its efficiency and even extend the lifetime of the unit as it isn't having to work as hard to keep your home cool. Keeping your attic cool can also help protect the shingles on your roof, as excessive heat can cause them to warp and split.
Modern attic fans generally are built with high tolerances, meaning they are extremely efficient to run, requiring very little power to move the air in your attic. These fans can either be connected to the mains power of your home or alternatively can come fitted with a solar panel that will run the fan during the heat of the day. Especially where big fans are needed for large attics, the solar power option is great to help reduce your power bill and your carbon footprint. SLC Solar Panel Pros supply a large range of attic fans that can help to keep your home cool through the summer.
Attic fans are quite simple mechanisms, which means maintenance is generally quick and easy with most models. In order to keep them running efficiently without drawing too much power, regular services are still recommended to check over the units, but thankfully due to their simplistic design, this is quite a quick process.
