Attic ventilation has a direct effect on the amount of heat that is transferred into your home. As a general rule, the lower the attic temperature, the less heat-gain into your home’s living area. Unfortunately, common passive attic ventilation methods are not very effective at reducing attic temperature, typically producing only 1-2 attic air changes per hour. The roofline negatively affecting air movement can cause this or perhaps the home is oriented in a manner that blocks adequate airflow. The solution is finding a better method of ventilation.
Letting your attic breathe is an important aspect of maintaining a healthy, energy efficient home. Without proper ventilation, attic heat buildup will directly impact your electric bills, as well as the performance and unit life of your A/C system. Solar attic fans provide an effective ventilation solution by continuously removing attic heat and moisture buildup throughout the day, resulting in a more comfortable home that requires less energy to cool. With solar fan models available for virtually every residential and commercial application, The Heat Busters are your “go to” resource in solar powered ventilation.
