TIPS & BENEFITS
Save Energy and Live Comfortably- Even During The Winter!
When most people think of solar attic fans, they think of one of its main functions- keeping their attic cool from extreme heat during the summer. Did you know the attic fan is equally beneficial in the winter? Even though there may be some raised eyebrows when you install it during this cold season, here are three benefits you will love:
- Helps to reduce the buildup of moisture in the attic that can often lead to mold growth. Mold growth can lead to serious health issues such as respiratory illness, allergic reactions and, in rare cases, death. It is not uncommon for mold to travel through walls and affect other parts of your home. How does the mold form in the first place? Hot air coming from other parts of your home makes contact with the cool air in the attic. This is a recipe for disaster as the condensation causes mold and mildew. Take the proactive approach and prevent the moisture build-up in the first place and install an attic fan.
- Can help increase the lifespan of your roof. The ventilation from the fan helps to not only keep moisture at bay, which helps to keep mold away but the absence of moisture also means your roof is less likely to be compromised (rot). We all know the cost of a new roof or roof repairs can sometimes cost a pretty penny so it would be wise to invest in an attic fan.
- Do the math: It can help you save money. Aside from the actual cost of the fan and installation, that’s all the money you’re likely to spend as the attic fan incurs zero costs to operate. It is an affordable way to minimize moisture build-up in your attic during the colder months and to help get rid of heat during the warmer months. No operational cost and highly beneficial? Sounds like a win-win to us!
