Solar Attic Fans
At Southern Foam Insulation, we are committed to providing our residential and commercial clients with cost-effective solutions to reduce their energy consumption, which means lower utility bills. An excellent investment that will help you with that objective is a solar attic fan. At Southern Foam, we have the experience and personnel to properly install solar attic fans that will be a one-time investment, and then save you monthly over the life of your home or building. Solar energy investments in homes and businesses continue to increase and evolve, and this trend will likely only increase as energy prices continue to climb putting an increased burden on utility customers.
A solar attic fan is generally roof-mounted, and operates from the energy absorbed from the sun. So it is a zero-maintenance investment, and Southern Foam has the expertise and experience to perform solar fan installations in a seamless and efficient manner. We will advise you on the best location for your fan, and can also provide you with information on what you can expect in energy savings for your solar investment.
As we all know, in Florida the average attic gets extremely hot 6 to 8 months each year, often exceeding 160 deg F. This creates a heavy burden on your home's AC system, as that hot air is pounding away all day on your ceiling area (attic floor), which forces your AC to work double time to keep your home cool. With a solar attic fan from Southern Foam, this stifling hot air is extracted from your attic during those warm months, which results in much cooler attic temperatures thus reducing the burden on your AC. All of this means lower monthly utility bills, and a more efficient building envelope! When that hot air is siphoned out of your attic, your attic then becomes a nearly conditioned space with much cooler temperatures.
Another great benefit of solar attic fans in Orlando, or anywhere in the state of Florida, is that they substantially reduce moisture in your attic space. And with reduced moisture, your attic becomes a much healthier environment, as the main catalyst for mold is moisture. So as you reduce moisture in your attic area, you also reduce the possibility of mold growth.
And if you use your attic for storage like so many Floridians, then a solar attic fan will create a much more comfortable environment for storage. Many items can become warped or damaged after years of storage in an attic that acts more like an oven than a storage area. A solar attic fan can solve this problem and make your attic a dry, comfortable area to store even your most precious items.
