Tips From Joe – Feb 1 2021
All You Need to Know About Attic Ventilation –
This weekend on the Radio Show, Check A Pro Joe was joined by Koala Insulation to discuss how you can save money on your electric bill AND be more comfortable in your home with a new Solar Attic Fan. Koala Insulation helped us understand the pieces and parts that contribute to quality attic ventilation so that you can better cool down your attic space.
So what does a solar attic fan do? The purpose of a solar fan is to reduce temperatures inside the attic and other enclosed spaces throughout the year. In the summer this helps make the living areas more comfortable and reduces HVAC usage, adding to its lifespan and saving energy. Solar fans also help reduce heat which can cause deterioration of shingles, roof boards, sheathing, siding, insulation and valuables stored in the attic.
In the winter solar fans help to prevent moist air from condensing on the underside of the roof, beams, and rafters. Condensation can cause mildew, rotting of wood, and excessive rusting of some components of the roof structure. Solar fans help keep the attic dry.

Install A Solar Attic Fan in a Properly Insulated Attic. Attic fans help to remove hot air from the attic and pull in cool air. Insulation and attic fans work like Batman and Robin, they go hand in hand. You can have insulation without an attic fan, but you cannot have an attic fan without insulation. Having attic insulation and an attic fan make a great team by helping the attic ventilate to keep the attic cooler. The most efficient option is a solar attic fan.
