Adding a solar attic fan now could mean running your AC less this summer.

Do you dread how much your electric bill goes up every summer thanks to your central air conditioner? A solar attic fan can reduce the load on your AC without adding anything to your electric bill each month. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons you should add a solar attic fan to your home this summer.

You Can Run Your AC Less

A solar attic fan can lower the temperature in your attic by as much as 40 degrees. Since heat rises, and a solar attic fan constantly pulls hot air out of the highest point in your home, your AC won’t have to work as hard to keep the rest of your home cool.

That’s good for a couple of reasons.

First, your air conditioner probably adds a lot to your electric bill each month, right? So running your AC less would reduce your utilities. And solar attic fans don’t use any electricity, so one won’t add anything to your monthly bill.

Secondly, running your AC less helps extend its lifespan. If you can put off buying a new central air system or spending money on repairs for a few months or years, you’ll save money there, too.

Environmentally Friendly

As the name implies, solar attic fans get their energy directly from the sun. They don’t require any electricity to run, so you aren’t using fossil fuels or other non-renewable resources to keep your attic aired out and your home cooler.

Additionally, since a solar attic fan helps keep your home cooler, you can run your power-hungry, Freon-spewing AC less without sacrificing your comfort.

Roof Protection

Without a fan in your attic, hot air can get trapped and damage the asphalt shingles on your roof during the hottest months of the summer. In the winter, that same trapped hot air can melt snow on your roof, causing damaging water pooling or ice dams. That means a solar attic fan helps protect your roof around the year.

Whisper Quiet

Solar attic fans are so quiet that you can barely hear them, which is a nice change of pace if you’re used to a loud electric attic fan or AC system. Listen to nature, not fans.
