Attics tend to trap solar heat that is absorbed through the roof and then has nowhere to go. It then transfers into our living space, requiring us to bump up that thermostat while sending our utility bills soaring. Plus, many of today’s homes are built with insufficient ventilation and air exchange systems.
This causes the high humidity levels in the Carolinas to migrate through the ceiling where it becomes trapped – saturating the insulation and promoting fungal decay and plywood delamination.
A solar attic fan can address each and every one of these potential problems all year long. And the best part is, it’s powered by the sun, so there is no additional electricity used.
