Okay, yes, many of you might use your attic more than that, however, the same principle applies: what is the point in spending money on an area that you almost never find yourself in? Well, we are here to tell you that your attic, although you might not use it for much, greatly impacts the rest of your home in terms of climate control and comfort.

Installing an attic fan is a great way to keep your attic cool, as it tends to retain a lot of heat.  Attics are typically highly insulated, and although this is great during the winter, it can pose a real problem in the summer.

Benefits of Using an Attic Fan During the Summer

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

Everyone likes to keep their homes cool and comfortable throughout the hottest time of the year. Of course, high energy costs can sometimes be a bit prohibitive for some of us attempting to do so. At G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. we believe that everyone deserves to be comfortable in their home, no matter how high energy costs may rise. That is why we are so proud to offer exceptional products and services to help keep your home comfortable as efficiently as possible. Contact us today to learn more. Here is some information from our Redmond, WA electrical technicians about the benefits of using an attic fan during the summer.

Anyone that has ever gone up into their attic during the summer months knows that it can be absolutely sweltering up there. The problems with having such a hot area at the top of your house have much more serious implications than simply making it uncomfortable to have to go up there, though. It is possible for this heat to radiate throughout your home, counteracting your air conditioning system’s best efforts to keep your house comfortable. Not only will this decrease your comfort, but it can put the condition of your air conditioning system at risk as well.

As more and more heat radiates throughout the surfaces of your home, your air conditioning system is going to work harder and harder for longer periods of time as it attempts to reverse this warming action. This places a lot of unnecessary wear and tear on your AC, which can ultimately lead to system damages. An attic fan can help you avoid such situations.

An attic fan helps to ventilate your attic so that your air conditioner will not have to work as hard to cool it down. Considering how hot your attic gets, bringing in outdoor air is a great way to even out temperatures. You do not want to waste money using your air conditioning system to cool an uninhabited attic. With an attic fan you can remove a lot of stress from the shoulders of your AC.

To learn more about the benefits of using and attic fan during the summer, contact G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. today. We’ll help you get the performance you need from your attic fan. The Redmond, WA electrical pros on our team can answer any questions you may have.
