Why Install a Solar Attic Fan in Orlando, FL?

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

It is no secret that this area is extraordinarily hot during the peak of the summer season, and that it stays quite warm for much of the year. While you are likely a fan of hot, sunny weather if you live around here, we are also guessing that you use an air conditioning system to keep your home cool and comfortable. Doing so in an efficient manner can be tough, though, especially when heat is allowed to rise and to build up in your attic. The good news is that Certified Air Systems, Inc. can help you to keep your energy costs in check. Call today to learn how using a solar attic fan in Orlando, FL can benefit you.

When heat builds up in the attic of your home, it becomes trapped there. This is very problematic for a number of reasons. First of all, while heat does rise, built up heat in your attic can actually radiate through surfaces in your home, especially when the AC is running, as it will naturally move from a warmer to a cooler environment. This can drag down comfort levels, as your air conditioner falls behind in the cooling process.

However, decreased comfort is not the only issue you may suffer from when your attic gets too hot. As your AC tries to compensate for the heat radiating from the attic, it is going to have to work harder to keep you cool. This puts unnecessary wear on the system, which can lead to operational problems. Plus, it will result in decreased efficiency, driving up your cooling costs.

A solar attic fan can alleviate such issues by ensuring that your attic is adequately ventilated. It allows heat to escape from the attic, helping to balance the temperature therein and taking some of the strain off of your air conditioner. Plus, the abundant sunshine we enjoy means that you won’t even need to use electricity to vent your attic. Solar powered devices are perfect for this area.
