Our attics trap heat more than any other part of our residential properties because of warm air’s tendency to rise. That’s why the attic is oftentimes one of the hottest parts of a home. Many people solve this problem by installing fans in their attics, but regular fans aren’t the most effective solution out there. Solar attic fans can help cool your attic down while saving you money.
Solar attic fans are powered by solar energy, so they don’t require your air conditioning unit to work hard to cool off your attic. Unlike regular fans, solar attic fans don’t run on the electricity connected to a power company, so you’ll save money on utility costs, too.
Another benefit of using solar attic fans is how environmentally friendly they are. Solar energy is a more renewable energy source that reduces your carbon footprint and is better for the planet. Having a solar attic fan installed will therefore allow you to enjoy the comfort of a cooled-off attic and residential property while being more environmentally conscious.
