Attic Fans Increase Air Flow And Comfort

Arizona understands “hot.”  It’s not uncommon for Yuma to experience summer temperatures as high as 120 degrees.  How do you keep your house cool in heat like that?

Attic fans are a great way to help beat the heat.  They improve comfort levels, can reduce heat load and save you money on your energy budget.

Heat rises to the uppermost areas of your home.  There it remains trapped.  The sun adds to the problem by heating the roof to intense temperatures.  That heat radiates in all directions, including directly into the home.   Attic fans are designed to draw in cooler air and push out that heated air. A cooler attic makes less work for your A/C.

Installation of the fan is possible in multiple configurations.  Attic vents (soffit and gable) are utilized to allow fresh outside air to circulate through the attic cooling the attic.

Attic fans used in combination with your home’s air conditioning system can save you money on your utility bills.  Heat removed from the attic by attic fans allows your A/C unit to run less without sacrificing comfort levels.  An air conditioning system working less extends the life of it’s moving parts and components and reduces money spent on utilities.

The professional staff at Hansberger Refrigeration and Electric Company understands the importance of your comfort.  We are able to help select an attic fan for your home and explain other ways to save on your energy budget.
