The fact is that heat rises. It could be higher than 100° in your attic space, even on a moderate 80° day! That’s why most home roofing industry experts agree that cooling your attic with attic fans along with good ventilation not only saves you money on energy costs, but also extends the service life of your major components such as roof framing and trusses, insulation, venting, plumbing, electrical wiring, and other components located in your home’s attic space.
If you are building a new home or doing major remodeling or renovation on your existing home, consider installing one of these systems. The return on the investment is compelling!
