It isn’t summer yet, but soon the temperatures will be soaring and you will be looking for cost-effective ways to keep your home cool. Now is the time to start planning your summer cooling system when service techs are not stretched thin and booked out for days or even weeks. One option you have is to have an attic fan installed by an electrician. Burbank homeowners can rely on H Electric to take care of this.
An attic fan will help get rid of all of that hot air that is trapped in the attic. The trapped hot air will make it that much harder for your air conditioner to cool your home. Your home will feel cooler with the hot air removed. In the hot summer months, it is not unheard of for attics to exceed temperatures of 120 degrees. Attic fans are extremely beneficial to homes that are 2 floors or more. You have probably noticed upstairs bedrooms are always hotter than those downstairs. Obviously the hot air rises, which makes it warm already, but the rooms are basically sandwiched between the heat rising and the heat trapped in the attic.
A thermostat will be used to turn the fan off and on so it isn’t constantly running. An electrician in Burbank will wire the fan into the attic. The fan will draw the hot air that is trapped in the space and push it out while pulling in the cooler air from outside. You will be amazed at the difference in the temperature of your upstairs room. Your electric bill will also decrease because your air conditioner will not be forced to run constantly to keep your home at the desired temperature. Take the time today to call H Electric and schedule your attic fan installation before the summer heat sneaks up on you.
