When summer hits, you want to keep your home as cool as possible, right? Sure, we don’t have the sweltering hot temperatures that they get in other parts of the country here in the Pacific Northwest, but given the contrast in our weather from season to season, summertime can be unbearable without the right home comfort systems in place, and an attic fan is a great home comfort system to consider!
The heat of the summer sun beats down on your roof for hours this time of the year, and your air conditioner has to run longer and longer the hotter it gets in order to meet your desired temperature setting on your thermostat. This essentially means that your AC is working harder than it should have to, and inefficiently so. This will soon reflect in higher energy costs and possibly even premature AC repair needs. But does an attic fan solve this problem?
