Benefits of Solar Powered Attic Fans | Lower Energy Bills
Getting the right mix of ventilation and insulation is somewhat tricky. In addition to insulating your attic and sealing up the gaps and cracks around your home, you will want to make sure that the attic allows excess heat and moisture out.
A visit from a professional home inspector (Home Energy Audit) will advise you where to insulate and if you have any moisture and ventilation problems. In addition to reducing moisture and increasing ventilation in your attic, solar powered attic fans will save you money and reduce energy consumption.
As you probably know, your attic can get very hot in the summer, easily reaching 90-100 degree temperatures. When installed properly, solar powered attic fans push the hot, trapped air out of your attic, reducing the workload on your HVAC unit. If your HVAC unit is located in your attic, this is especially important.
Since attic fans only require a small amount of power, and that power is generated for free by the sun, you will be reducing overall energy use and saving money. And solar powered attic fans aren't just for the summer. In the winter, the attic fans function to reduce moisture and increase the quality of your indoor air. They also reduce the risk of ice damming near your rafters by improving air circulation.
