1. WHAT IS AN ATTIC FAN?
An Attic Fan is a powerful ventilator mounted on the roof. It's purpose is to pull out the hot air out of the attic during hot summer days. Most of Attic Fans have a thermostat which automatically switch fan on & off depending of the attic temperature.
2. IS ATTIC FAN SUITABLE FOR MY HOME?
Attic Fans will help in most of moderate climate houses with a roof.
3. WHAT ARE BENEFITS OF HAVING AN ATTIC FAN?
This are some of advantages having an Attic Fan:
- Cool the house without the use of AC
- Extend the roof lifespan
- Protect the attic insulation
- Reduce attic moisture during the cold weather
4. HOW MANY POWER VENTILATORS DO I NEED
By employing Precision Electrical, a technician will help you choose a proper size of the fan and required number of them to properly cool down your attic without depressurizing it.
It is important to know that too many or too strong ventilators will make an exact opposite effect - attic will become depressurized and cool air from the living spaces will go up through the ceiling, walls, sockets, lights to the ceiling thus increasing the amount of air AC unit has to cool down.
If the fan is too weak on the other hand, it will not have enough power to move the air and reduce the attic temperature.
This is why it is wise to employ a Precision professional to come up with a perfect solution for your house.
5. HOW WILL ATTIC FANS COOL MY HOUSE?
Precision Electrical technician will mount one or more powerful ventilators at the roof of your house. As the heat rises in the attic, the Attic Fans will switch on and start blowing hot air out. This will cause an airflow in the attic, colder air will be pulled from the outside and attic temperature will start dropping.
By cooling the attic you will reduce the pressure on your insulation and effectively reduce the amount of heating your home gets from the ceiling.
6. LATEST TECHNOLOGY SOLAR POWERED ATTIC FANS
Save with the latest generation of Attic Fans which run entirely on solar energy thus completely eliminating dependency on the power grid. As long as they need to run all the time, why not let them run for free?
7. REDUCE COOLING BILLS BY INSTALLING ATTIC FAN
At hot summer days, temperature in attic can go up really fast, which heats the ceiling and puts pressure on your AC unit. By replacing the hot air from the attic, your ceiling will be colder and your AC unit will need to work less.
Precision Electrical suggests solar powered attic fans to further reduce operational costs.
