If you’re a homeowner interested in saving money on your heating and cooling bills, or if you want to protect your home from the dangers of mold and a prematurely failing roof, then you probably already know how important it is to keep your attic air circulated.
What you may not know is how effective solar-powered attic fans can be at various times of the year. This raises the question: when is best to install them?
What Solar-Powered Attic Fans Do
Simply put, solar-powered attic fans use the natural energy of the sun to power a highly efficient fan that moves air out of your attic. This has the effect of normalizing the attic’s air volume and eliminating pockets of cold, warm, or moist air.
The benefits are numerous, including:
- Easier operation of furnaces and air conditioners
- Less accumulation of mildew and mold
- Fewer incidences of ‘ice damming’ on the roof
- Better functioning gutters and downspouts
If you don’t have solar-powered attic fans installed already, the next obvious question to ask would be, “When should I install them?”. Does it make more sense to wait until the Spring, or would they still be beneficial in the Fall?
The Answer: There Is No ‘Best’ Season for Installation
Here’s the secret about solar-powered attic fans: they work to protect your home and reduce your HVAC bills year-round. In the summers, these air-circulating marvels help your AC do its job, and in the winters, your roof and furnace both function better.
So, in summary, if you need solar-powered attic fans installed onto your house, the time to act is now!
