Attic Exhaust Fans (Powered Attic Ventilators)
Does your home seem to struggle to keep cool in the summertime? Does it seem like your air conditioning system is constantly running to maintain a consistent interior temperature? If so, you may have a ventilation problem. This problem will not only overtax your air condition system but also potentially impact the lifespan of your roof. An attic exhaust fan, also known as a powered attic ventilator, might be a good idea for your home.
While many property owners tend to focus on high-quality air conditioning systems when it comes to home cooling, they neglect to consider airflow and ventilation. You might have the best air conditioning system on the market, but without the right ventilation structure for your property it will be running more than it should, increasing the chances of early failures and the need for expensive repairs.
What Is an Attic Exhaust Fan?
The airflow throughout your home is an important part of keeping your home comfortable. Even if you have a robust air conditioning system, your home needs to be able to circulate the cooled air throughout your house. Since heat rises, the hot air inside your home tends to collect near the roof inside your attic, and over time this can negatively impact the life of your roof and make your home’s air conditioning system work harder than it should to keep your home cool.
An attic exhaust fan will push this hot air out of your attic, creating much better airflow through your attic space and reducing the heat burden on your roof. As long as your attic is tightly sealed, you don’t need to worry about the fan drawing air-conditioned air from inside your home and blowing it outside. When installed correctly in the slope or gable of your roof, the attic exhaust fan will reduce the energy consumption of your home’s air conditioning system while also helping to preserve your roof. It does this by reducing the amount of heat reaching the underside of your roof.
