Why Use A Solar Powered Attic Fan?
A Sunrise Solar attic fan is powered solely with free energy from the sun. They're designed to reduce the temperature of your attic. This allows:
- Less Stress On Your Cooling System
- Conservation of Power
- Saves you money.
Sunrise Solar, like Fafco Solar, prides itself on improving your quality of life while protecting our environment.
With solar powered attic fans you achieve:
Lower Attic Temperature Which In Turn Reduces The Load On Your HVAC System
Attic temperatures can exceed 160 F during hot summer days. Proper attic ventilation can reduce those temperatures by 50 F. Attic insulation can actually add to temperature increases because heat is trapped in the insulation.
Proper ventilation evacuates this excess heat build-up. As the heat is exhausted the work of the air conditioning system is reduced. This saves energy and extends the life of the air conditioning system.
A Longer Life For Your Roof
Asphalt shingles are designed to take the abuse of the sun for many years. They're subjected to greater temperatures when the roof decking is allowed to overheat. This is what happens in an under ventilated attic in the warmer months.
In the cooler months, moisture is the most serious concern. Even with use of vapor barriers, there are air leaks around ceiling light fixtures and bathroom exhaust fans. This allows unwanted moisture into the attic.
Moisture condensing on the framing members and the inside of the roof deck can lead to the growth of mold, mildew and rot in the roof deck and framing.
