It’s another hot summer season, and we’ve got a ways to go before things really cool down again. That is why we recommend that you take our advice, and put fans to work for you during the hottest time of the year. Read on to learn more about how ceiling and attic fans in Everett, WA can benefit you!
Ceiling Fans and Attic Fans Can Complement Your AC
It is true that ceiling fans do not actively cool one’s home in the way that an air conditioning system does. If you think that this renders your ceiling fans obsolete, though, think again. They are far more than a quaint reminder of the past or simple decoration.
Ceiling fans help to distribute the air that is cooled by your air conditioning system throughout the house. This can make a big difference in terms of comfort, and makes it possible for you to raise the temperature at the thermostat a bit without sacrificing that comfort. Ceiling fans use much less electricity than your AC, so keeping them going still beats cranking the air conditioner.
Another type of fan that we often recommend to homeowners throughout the area is the attic fan. Far fewer homeowners are immediately familiar with attic fans than they are with ceiling fans, but they deserve your attention. The attic fan does not serve to make your attic more comfortable for spending time in, of course.
Instead, an attic fan serves to ventilate your attic, which can become superheated on a hot summer day. Heat rises, and the heat trapped in your attic can wind up radiating down through your home’s construction materials and warming your living space. Venting this very hot air out takes a lot of strain off of your AC. It can also protect your roof, as humidity is vented out as well.
