To Keep Cool Air In, Look to the Attic!
Attics are, for those of us who have them, typically the last thing on our minds, unless we’re digging out the Christmas lights. While they may not always be on our mind, they should never be forgotten, especially when it comes to keeping your home cool and your energy bills down this summer.
Attics tend to be pretty decent heat syncs. Heat has a natural propensity to rise, so attics tend to get really hot on sunny summer days, even hotter than outdoors! So, the first step to keeping that hot air from finding its way back into your home is to make sure the attic is properly insulated and sealed from the rest of the house.
The second step is to look into an attic fan. Using vents to draw in cool air and force out the hot air, an attic fan can do wonders for keeping your house cool this summer. Since your AC won’t have to work so hard to keep your home comfortably cool, you’re monthly bills won’t get out of hand.
Attics play a big role in the overall temperature of your house, and should be treated as such.
