Is your air conditioner running up your utility bill? Are you concerned about the air quality in your home? Do you feel the need to make your home more comfortable? Whole house fans and other ventilation systems can serve as a great alternative to an air conditioner – and use a fraction of the energy. Not only can they cool your home, but they also provide a tremendous source of ventilation to help increase indoor air quality and provide greater comfort in the home.
During the summer time, attics can reach extreme temperatures well above outdoor temperatures. This doesn’t help when you are trying to keep your home cool. It can become a vicious cycle of running the air conditioner to cool down the home only to have the hot attic fighting against it to heat the home back up again. A great way to eliminate some of the hot attic air is by using an attic fan.
