How Attic Fans Work
An attic fan is a system designed to vent some of the heat in the attic out of the house while bringing in cooler air from the outside. Vents are installed in the gables or rafters of the attic, to allow air to flow in and out in small amounts. The attic fan is then connected to these vents.
While the fan is operating, it simultaneously pushes heat out of the attic and brings in fresh air from the outside. This will cool the attic and prevent the air inside from becoming quite as stale. This will not be as effective as having a refrigerant air conditioner installed, of course, but it’s quite a bit better than nothing.
The Benefits of Attic Fans
Some people think that they don’t need to keep their attics comfortable because they don’t spend any time up there. However, the attic fan is really not intended to create a more comfortable environment. Instead, these devices serve to take some strain off of your air conditioner.
When the attic is much hotter than the rest of the house, heat can transfer down through the building materials into your living space. This puts added strain on your cooling system. Attic vents can also help to prevent damage to your roof and other issues by venting moisture out of the attic.
The Attic Fan Service Professionals in Broomfield
There are some who say that attic fans can be installed by the homeowner but we don’t recommend this for several reasons. For one, cutting into the rafters or gable without proper knowledge or equipment can do more harm than good. For another, attic fans are often hardwired into the home’s electrical system. You should never, ever attempt your own electrical work unless you’re a trained professional. The risk of injury or fire is too great to be worth it. Leave it all to Cooper Heating & Cooling instead.
