You have probably figured out that this is going to be a hot summer. In actuality, they all are, but the first few weeks are always a bit of a culture shock. You are probably already thinking of ways to keep your home cool this summer without getting carried away with the air conditioner. Turning your house into a cave by darkening windows to block out the sun isn’t exactly the way you want to spend your summer. The gorgeous sun is something to be enjoyed, but sometimes it is a little warmer than we would prefer. You don’t have to go the cave route. You can help keep your house cool by having an attic fan installed by an electrician in West Palm Beach. The electricians at Elcon Electric are here to help you do what is necessary to keep your home cool without costing you a small fortune on your cooling bill.
Attic fans are designed to pull out the hot air that becomes trapped between the ceiling and the attic space of your home. This heat makes it difficult for your air conditioner to keep up with your cooling demands. The fan doesn’t only pull the hot air out; it pulls the cooler air from outside in. Typically, the fan is placed under an eave or overhang that is shaded. This ensures the air being pulled into the attic is fairly cool.
The fan will need to be installed by an electrician. West Palm Beach homeowners will be pleased to know the fans are designed to turn off and on automatically. You won’t have to worry about turning the fan on manually or it running constantly. Attic fans are an excellent way to save money on your cooling bill while keeping cool this summer. Give Elcon Electric a call today and have yours installed.
