We’ve all seen some of the ways you can make your home more energy-efficient: replacing your light bulbs with CFL (Compact Fluorescent Light) bulbs, turning off the lights and air conditioner when you’re out, installing a low-flow toilet/shower head…etc.  But have you considered what you can do with your roof? Let’s talk about solar attic fans.

You know about solar power, and you’ve heard how efficient they can be – but maybe you’re not quite ready to dish out a ton of money to line your entire roof/yard with high-powered solar panels.

Making your home a “green” home is best approached in small steps.  Have you considered replacing your attic fans? If you didn’t know, an attic fan is the small, round fan you see on the roofs of houses and buildings.A power attic fan.

These helpful little units are absolutely key in keeping your home healthy. In the summer, they move super-heated air out of the attic which in turn keeps moisture levels down. In the winter, they circulate the cold air in the attic to prevent ice damming (a problem where ice on the roof melts because the attic is too warm, then trickles down to the gutters and freezes again). They also help take a lot of the strain off of your HVAC unit.

The conventional attic fan is electric and usually wired into the house’s power. A solar-powered attic fan is independent and requires no maintenance after installing.
