You don’t need to sweat when you walk into your attic.
Your attic can easily start to feel like a sauna. Heat naturally rises, and because your attic sits at the top of your home, all of the heat in your home will naturally rise to the attic. Now, you may be tempted to ignore the heat in your attic. After all, you may not spend too much time in there, so what’s the point in cooling your attic down? However, a hot attic can damage your home’s shingles, as well as anything you store in your attic. Luckily, there are devices such as attic ventilators that can keep your attic temperature under control.
Attic ventilators work by drawing fresh air into your attic from the outside and pushing out hot air from inside your attic. This also helps control your home’s indoor air quality. Poor air quality can be hazardous for your health and hard on your home’s HVAC system. Your home’s ventilation system has to work harder to eliminate any unsafe particles circulating in your home’s air, which can lead to your HVAC system deteriorating sooner than it should. Installing attic ventilators can not only help keep your attic at a safer temperature, but it can also help ease the strain on your HVAC system.
Don’t ignore your attic just because you don’t go in it all the time. Installing attic ventilators is a great way to keep your attic temperature under control and help protect everything in it, so if you want to add attic ventilators to your home in the Greater Lake Jackson, Texas area, call us at Frankum AC & Heating, LLC today.
