Air Out Your Attic!

Your attic is critical to your home’s comfort. When heat gets trapped in that space, it can destroy a home’s indoor air quality, that’s why ventilation is critical. By properly ventilating your attic, you can avoid mold, mildew and stagnant air. A lack of air flow also makes your HVAC unit work twice as hard, costing you more money. One of the ways to generate air in your attic is through solar attic fans. These devices also provide natural light and converts the light into energy.  Solar attic fans properly ventilate lofts, storage sheds, garages, barns, workshops, etc.
