Removing Heat and Humidity

Solar attic fans are great because they help to remove heat and humidity from your attic. Attics are notorious for being very hot and humid. You may not think that this is impacting the indoor air temperature of the rest of your home, but it can. Extra heat can increase the temperature in your home, even if it’s just a little bit. Helping to cycle out heat and humidity can make your home feel more comfortable. 

Refreshing the Air

At the same time, a solar attic fan is bringing in fresh air from the outside. This helps to prevent air from becoming stale and happy. I can improve indoor air quality since air pollution won’t be trapped and re-circulating over and over again. 

Preventing Mold Growth

As an added benefit of refreshing the air, you can also reduce the chances of mold growth. This is because mold spores in the air are constantly being cycled back outside, while fresh air comes in. The movement of constant airflow can reduce the likelihood of a mold infestation. It also helps that humidity is being cycled out so that the air is not as moist, reducing the conditions in which mold tends to grow.

Boost HVAC Efficiency

Having fresh airflow moving around can help your HVAC system work with greater efficiency. Lowering the temperature in your attic and bringing in fresh air reduces the amount of work your HVAC system has to do. Instead of straining against extra heat and humidity, your HVAC system can work with greater effectiveness. 

Since the solar attic fan helps to remove heat, your HVAC system may not have to do as much to lower the indoor air temperature in the summer. Aside from saving money on your monthly energy costs, you can also reduce the number of repairs needed since you’re reducing strain on the unit. This can also save you money over having to make more serious repairs to your HVAC system.
