Please contact the certified and versatile electricians at Mr. Electric Of Katy to help you choose the right and most functional attic ventilators. 

What duty does the attic ventilator perform? 

The attic ventilator is also referred to as the attic fan, and it ensures proper evacuation of hot air accumulating during the day in the attic while drawing cooler air from the outside. It facilitates the removal of trapped air from the outside and ensures that the temperature within the attic is the same or almost the same as the temperature outside. When air is stagnant the sunshine hitting the roof heats up the air in the attic, it is, therefore, important to evacuate this trapped air in order to save energy and money on cooling.

What different types of attic fans are available?

The roof-top and the 120-watt gable fans are the two types of attic fans available today. The root-top fan draws air through the roof of the attic and directs it inside to cool off the attic. The gable fan has a system that blows air into the attic and a second fan that blows hot air out of the attic. The gable fan is more economical because it is powered by solar cells and both gable openings will allow fresh air from the outside. The gable fan will turn off when sunshine subsides or goes. You may want to speak to a certified electrician to help you make informed choices on the most suitable type of attic fan, based on your location, and budget. You may also want to schedule maintenance servicing to ensure optimal delivery of the attic fan.
