Marylanders are getting ready for the warm, muggy weather that the summer is sure to bring. Homeowners everywhere are making sure that their air conditioning units and fans are up to the challenge, but some homeowners neglect the state of their home’s ventilation as a whole. Cooling isn’t the only thing you need from your HVAC system — fluctuations in temperature and humidity can damage your home, and moisture buildup can cause significant issues down the line. If your house has an attic, make sure that you have the tools you need to ensure adequate ventilation. Attic fan installation from Professional Electric Inc. can help!
How Effective is Your Home’s Ventilation?
While your primary focus heading into summer may be the state of your air conditioning unit, your home’s ventilation can be just as important. Ventilation is vital for homes with attics. Warm air rises, often getting trapped in a home’s attic. Without proper ventilation and airflow, this stagnant air keeps your attic warm and causes moisture buildup. If you’re unsure about the condition of your home’s ventilation (particularly in the attic), consider maintaining, replacing, or installing attic fans for increased airflow.
Basics of Attic Fan Installation
There are a few different types of fans to consider for attic fan installation, and each one has its strengths. Solar or electric attic fans are typically mounted on either the rooftop or gables. When considering attic fan installation, you may want to invest in fans that feature a built-in thermostat or humidity control. This can allow you to create steady airflow without excessive air exchange, which can lead to moisture buildup. Humidity control ensures that your fans are not bringing in excess moisture from outside.
How Attic Fan Installation Helps You
Attic fan installation is vital in places like Maryland. Our warm and humid weather can cause mold to grow and spread, and warm attic space can inflate your cooling bills. Attic fan installation (and routine maintenance) helps homeowners limit moisture buildup, keep their cooling bills in check, and prolong their roof’s lifespan. Functioning attic fans can also help improve air quality indoors by limiting mold growth.
