Cool Down a Bit With an Attic Fan

- 11:10 am - July 16th, 2019


As the summer is heating up, we figured our Hampton Roads customers are trying their best to stay cool and wait out the hot and humid days of summer. While air conditioning system tune-ups and upgrades work wonders for the living areas in the home, there is an area that might not be getting the attention it needs… we’re talking about the attic!

Believe it or not, the hot summer sun beating down on the roof can make it difficult for the home to cool off, even with the latest cooling technology at your disposal! One way to help keep your home cooler is by having an attic fan installed by E.T. Lawson’s team!

Check out why you should consider installing an attic fan in your home…

Decreased Temperatures in Living Spaces

When temperatures outside are in the 80s, the temperature in your attic could be nearly twice that! Running an attic fan during the hottest part of the day potentially lowers attic temperatures by as much as 50 degrees, which keeps your home about 10 degrees cooler.

Reduced Cooling Costs

When your home is cooler, you can run your air conditioning system a little bit less, and it won’t work quite as hard as it had to when your attic was dumping excess heat into the home. This saves money on both utility and repair bills.

Improved Humidity Protection

Other than the heat, the humidity of summer is a major problem – especially in the attic, where wooden studs and the roof are susceptible to damage from the excessive moisture. An attic fan helps remove that moisture, preventing structural damage and keeping your home cooler.

Don’t put up with the heat and humidity that’s building up in your attic, instead call or contact E.T. Lawson today to discuss how installing an attic fan in your home can help improve your comfort and reduce energy bills for the rest of summer!
