In the South it is very common for attics and roofs to hold an excessive amount heat radiated from the Sun. This can cause attics to reach temperatures much higher than those outside. This heat then moves into the home making the home's air conditioning unit work even harder to keep the space cool in the Summer months. This homeowner was noticing very high temperatures in their attic and, subsequently, inside their home. After calling Carolina Energy Conservation, our Comfort Specialists decided to install a solar attic fan on top of their roof to help keep the attic the same temperature as outside. This takes a lot of the pressure off of the air conditioning units so that the cool air is cooling the home rather than the attic.
This whisper quiet, low-profile, solar powered attic fan qualifies for 55% State and Federal tax credits.
