Whole House Attic Fans: For an Energy Efficient Future This article describes the importance of using technologies – such s whole house fans – that are designed to run more efficiently on substantially less electricity. Whole house attic fans offer a fantastic solution for people looking to make the move toward a more energy efficient home. Most of us understand the negative impacts that fossil fuel and carbon-generated electricity and the associated emissions have had on our environment. While there are many that doubt the validity of ‘Global Warming’, we all see the huge rise in our utility rates. The changes that need to be made can seem very intimidating, but they can most effectively and easily be implemented in the home. Whole house attic fans and clean energy technology are the answer to a lower carbon footprint and a positive step in the right direction towards a healthier environment. Whole House Attic Fans and Clean Energy Technologies There are quite a number of clean energy technologies now available on the market. And while investing in them is a fantastic way to lessen your home’s dependence on fossil fuel-generated electricity, not everyone can afford them. Solar panels are a great example of this renewable energy technology; however, they are also notoriously expensive with the result that few homes are actually able to have them installed. Wind turbines are another example; however, for any discernable difference to be made, you would need a rather large garden with enough space to accommodate one. This again, has proved to be an insurmountable problem for many people. Whole house attic fans on the other hand are installed in the home as you would any other ventilation fan. But the difference they make is incredible! Whole house attic fans operate by drawing clean, cool and fresh air from outside your house while exhausting old, stale and hot air from vents in the attic. Owing to this circulation, your house is kept consistently cool, even during the hottest of summer months. Benefits of whole house attic fans include: ● A house that is 10º to 20º cooler ● An attic that is up to 50º cooler! ● A steady supply of fresh air in the home ● Removal of old, stale air and humidity ● Greater health of you and your family ● Lower electricity bills (whole house attic fans only consume 10% of the energy required by traditional A/C units) ● Greater energy efficiency of your home While there is a great variety of renewable and clean energy technology available on the market, it comes as fantastic news to learn that you need not take out a second mortgage on your home just to make it more energy efficient. Whole house attic fans constitute a fantastic positive step towards the health of you, your family and the greater environment.
