Benefits of Solar Attic Fans

The regular increase in utility bills and the rising awareness about the importance of good ventilation in the home to help combat airborne diseases has resulted in an upsurge of interest in attic fans. Before looking at the benefits that these fans provide, it is important to define what an attic fan is. As the name suggests, it is a fan that is installed in the attic that pulls stale and warm air from the lower floors and pushes it out of the house. This results in fresh, clean air from the outside being drawn into the home to replace the old air.

The Benefits of Solar Attic Fans

Attic fans offer several benefits. These include:

A Significant Reduction in Air Conditioning Costs: Because the attic fan pushes warm air out of the house, the air conditioning load (the amount of cooling that is needed to reduce interior temperatures) is reduced. This translates into a significant reduction in electricity consumption and hence the utility bills.

Cost-Effective Operation: Attic fans use less electricity than an air conditioning unit, so the running costs are lower. In fact, if a solar-powered attic fan is installed, it will consume no electricity and will, in effect, run for free without in any way sacrificing the many advantages these fans offer. A major additional benefit is that solar-powered attic fans qualify for a federal tax credit.

Making the Home Healthier: If there is an upside to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is that we have all learned about the importance of good ventilation as a way to protect ourselves against airborne diseases. An attic fan blows stale virus and pollutant-filled air out of the home, making the interiors healthier.

Effectiveness in Winter: Attic fans are useful in cold weather too. They remove excess humidity in the interior air that is caused by the use of dishwashers, showers, humidifiers, etc. making the atmosphere healthier. These fans help prevent structural decay and leaks caused by ice buildup on the roof. The reduction in accumulated moisture also helps avoid damage to framing materials and insulation. The increased airflow and moisture reduction fight the development of mold and fungus which could weaken the internal structures.

Installing the Right Attic Fan:

Installing the right solar-powered attic fan is essential for maximizing the benefits. The fans should:

Be from a reputed manufacturer known for solar-powered fans that are efficient, reliable, and durable so that you can be sure of years of trouble-free operation.

Be available in different sizes so that depending on the house size the correct fan can be chosen.

Be available with different roof mounts to cater to varying climatic conditions, geographical factors, and building and insurance codes.
