If you live in mid-Tennessee and have ever gone up in your home’s attic in the summer, you know how intensely hot it can be. The trapped heat seeps into your home and works against your cooling system’s efforts to bring down your indoor humidity and temperature. More energy will be expended to get your home to the comfort level you expect from your air conditioning.
At Copeland and Son, we often recommend the addition of an attic fan to help pull the heat and humidity out of our customer’s attics.
Not only does it exhaust the weighty air trapped beneath your roof, but an attic fan brings in fresh, cooler air that helps cool your home and reduce the burden on your system.
By removing humidity, attic moisture is reduced along with the potential for condensation and the damage it can cause. Even your roof will benefit as lower attic temperatures help extend the life of common asphalt shingles.
Between lower energy bills, extended roof life, and reduced strain on their cooling system, most Nashville-area homeowners find an attic fan offers a very good return on investment.
