Finding relief from the hot and humid summers on the Gulf Coast can be a costly challenge. A well maintained air conditioning system can cool your house to a comfortable temperature, however, a fully optimized housing cooling system is not complete without an Attic Fan. While an air conditioning unit cools the major parts of a house, an attic fan helps provide supplemental cooling, from top to bottom.
Imagine walking into your home after a long day outside or a long commute from work, to feel the cooling relief of your air conditioner. You feel amazing and refreshed as you travel through you home, but are curious to find pockets of hot air in various places through out your house, or to find that the lower level of your house is cool, but the upper level is upwards of 20 degrees hotter! In these scenarios, replacing or installing an attic fan can be the solution.
How Do Attic Fans Work?
Benefits of Attic Fans
- Reduces excessive heat and humidity
- Heat and humidity go hand in hand in the The Woodlands, Spring, Conroe and Montgomery area. Being so close to the Gulf, lakes, trees and green spaces, condensation in the atmosphere is heavily prevalent. Attic Fans help to push out the moisture in your home that can result in mold and decay of the wood in your structure.
- Lowers the cooling cost of your house
- Hot air rises to the top of your house and stagnates either on the second story or the attic causing a heavy burden on your air conditioner to continuously cool the air. Attic fans lessen the cooling load by removing hot air from your home, resulting in more efficient air conditioning usage, and greater electricity savings.
- Provides Comfort and Relief from High Temperatures
- Attic fans help maintain a comfortable environment in your home by supplementing your air conditioning system to cool all areas of your home from top to bottom.
- Eliminates Hazardous Vapors and Fumes
- Fumes and gases from stoves, water heaters, and furnaces can stagnate in your house. Attic fans help push hazardous vapors and fumes out of your house along with excess heat and moisture to create a safe and clean environment for you and your family.
