Solar Attic Fans
In summer, temperatures in an attic can exceed 150 degrees F. A properly sized solar attic ventilation system will reduce attic temperature 40-50 degrees F, increasing the performance of your insulation and extending the life of the roof. A hot attic acts like a giant radiator, transferring heat into your living spaces, sending both utility bills and temperatures soaring.
In colder climates, heat build-up in an attic causes snow to melt and run down where it freezes at the eaves, causing destructive ice damming. Additionally, moisture can saturate insulation, promote fungal decay and plywood delamination.
