When our Charlotte, NC temperatures soar, consider decreasing the temperature of your home by adding attic ventilation from Sky HVAC. Hot summer months can cause attic air to heat up to 140 degrees or more. Many homeowners aren’t aware that inadequate attic ventilation can cause your utility bills to spike in the summer months, make homes less temperate, and affect the life span of your roofing materials. Installing an attic fan can help address these issues.

Benefits of an Attic Fan
Attic fans work by drawing in cooler outside air from attic vents and then pushing hot air out. Attic fans help stop hot air from seeping into your home and increasing the temperature in your living space, which reduces how hard your air conditioner must work. The EPA reports that good attic ventilation can reduce cooling costs by 30-40 percent.

How You Can Install a Fan Yourself
The three basic steps for installing an attic fan include:
- Cutting the roof hole.
- Fastening the fan.
- Wiring the fan to a power source.
Ensure there is adequate passive venting in the attic so the fan can work as it was designed. You also need to make sure the attic is well sealed from your home’s interior or it will pull out conditioned interior air.
Adequate attic insulation (at least a foot on the attic floor) is essential to support the effectiveness of your attic fan.

Why You Should Hire a Professional to Install an Attic Fan
Installing an attic fan on your own may sound like an adventurous endeavor but it can also be dangerous. Attic fan installation is more than just plugging in a fan and flipping a power switch. The attic fan must be wired into your home’s electrical system so that it receives the precise amount of power it needs for safe, reliable, and efficient operation. Partnering with a licensed electrician for your attic fan installation gives you the peace of mind that your attic fan will deliver.
