Not looking forward to those high cooling costs this summer? Then stop wasting money! Installing a solar powered attic fan can save you both energy and money, while providing better ventilation.
In the summer, homes attics here in Central Florida can easily reach triple digits! If the rooms directly below the attic don’t have ample insulation, your air conditioning system will be working harder than it needs to be. You end up paying the cost in high monthly energy bills.
Before you install an attic fan, here is what you need to know
Install an attic fan may seem pretty straight forward, but when it comes to cutting a hole in your roof, it may be best to leave it up to the professionals at Schick Roofing.
Proper installation is vital. The last thing anyone wants is an attic fan that wasn’t properly sealed allowing water to penetrate your roof or the elements to gain access into your attic. It could end up costing a small fortune in repairs.
Significant savings on your energy cost is just one of the benefits of a solar attic fan. Adequate ventilation means you won’t have heat build ups that dramatically drive up your electric bill. Because the attic fan is powered by the sun, it won’t be contributing to the energy costs.
It can also extend the lifespan of the shingles, by reducing the heat build up in the roof. Your home, especially those rooms adjacent to the attic, will be more comfortable.
The cost of an attic fan
There are several variables when it comes to the cost of an attic fan, the size of your attic, whether or not your attic is finished, the type of attic fan you purchase.
