Attic Fans Beat the Heat

attic fansWhen the hot summer sun starts beating down on your roof, keeping your home cool can be a challenge. Sure, your air conditioner does a pretty good job of lowering the temperature and reducing humidity, but it works hard to get the job done. Attic fans can help a lot in the process by reducing the load on your air conditioner. It’s also an efficient add-on to new or replacement air conditioning.

At Brown’s, we offer installation for attic fans in Monmouth and Ocean County areas. Our technicians are here to help you beat the summer heat and lighten the load on your air conditioner.

Homeowners can experience many benefits from attic fans. Here are just a few.

Lower Temperatures in the Attic and Living Areas

Running an attic fan during the hottest part of the day can lower temperature in your attic by as much as 50 degrees. When the outside temperature is in the 80s, the temperature in an attic could potentially skyrocket to 150 degrees or even higher. While vents allow for a degree of passive cooling, attic fans are the best way to make a significant difference in the overall temperature.

This translates to temperatures roughly 10 degrees cooler throughout the rest of your home.

Decreased Air Conditioning Expenses

Since attic fans work to keep your home cooler, the air conditioner won’t have to run as much. By simply decreasing the temperature inside your home by 10 degrees, you could cut your cooling expenses by about 30%.

Overall, attic fans don’t cost a lot to operate and some models come with built-in thermostats to ensure that they only run when absolutely necessary to save you even more.

In addition to lowering your electric bill, attic fans reduce air conditioning expenses by preventing excess wear and tear on your cooling system. Since your AC won’t have to work as hard once you have an attic fan, you’ll face fewer repairs in the future and extend the longevity of the system as well.

Humidity Control

Humidity can be a big problem in many New Jersey attics. When moisture becomes trapped in the attic, it can eventually lead to mold and respiratory problems. Attic fans help remove moisture before it causes more damage.
