Improve home comfort
Continuous air exchange regulates the temperature and humidity in the attic, reducing the load on cooling and heating systems, thereby increasing the comfort of your home. For example, the living space temperature on the first floor may drop by 10°F after a solar attic fan is running for a few hours. If the thermostat is set at 75°F to trigger the air conditioner, the living space may not exceed 72°F.
Reduce energy costs
A properly installed attic (requiring 1 to 3 solar attic fans) will reduce electricity (air conditioning load) by approximately 3.5 kWh per cooling day.
Extend the life of roofing materials
A solar-powered attic fan is your best defense against mold, mildew, and other contaminants. Solar-powered attic fans draw moisture out, keep the attic dry and reduce mold growth. Reducing mold and mildew will not only improve the air quality in your home, but it will also extend the life of your roof tiles and trusses, which will help you save and maintain in the long run.
