There is no denying that every attic owner will be the first to tell anyone who will listen about the importance of attic fans. In fact, an attic is a very small and confined space that easily traps a lot of moisture and humidity. The reality is, reducing the energy load on your roof by investing in an attic fan can really be a great investment for your home down the line. Ultimately, if you don’t already have an attic fan installed, there are some key things you’ll want to consider to make sure to keep your home safe and comfortable all year long. Here are the most important things to consider when it comes to installing an attic fan in your humble abode.
Installation And The Type Of Attic Fan
One of the first things you’ll run across when it comes to determining whether an attic fan is a good investment comes down to the price. In fact, there are two key ways that you can install an attic fan. One is a roof and the other is a gable. The reality is, roof fans are always installed via the roof itself — as the name would suggest. And then, gable fans are typically installed in your attic’s wall — thereby many homeowners find they replace their attic vent with an attic fan to provide maximum comfort in the space. Ultimately, both af these types of installations are available for a wide array of different types of fans as well. Knowing which combination is best will dictate the actual cost of the installation.
Knowing Your Fan’s Size
An attic fan needs to be the right size to fit in the space effectively and efficiently. In fact, to optimize your comfort, having a fan that is proportional to the attic space will make a huge difference in how you end up enjoying your attic in the future. The reality is, be sure to keep in mind the ceiling height in your attic — as that’ll likely dictate exactly how large or small your attic fan should be.
