Cooling Your Home With Attic Exhaust Fans


Cooling Your Home With Attic Exhaust Fans

Electrical fans are the most common and the most efficient. These are usually installed on the roof or gable wall, and they’re hardwired into the electrical system. Electric fans are often controlled by a thermostat and turn on when the attic reaches a specified temperature. For example, if the thermostat is set to 90 degrees, the fan turns on when the attic reaches 90 degrees and remains off otherwise.





Wind- Powered Turbines are another option. Have you ever seen the metal, rooftop-mounted fans that spin with the wind? These wind-powered turbine fans, affectionately known as whirlybirds, are a favorite for homeowners looking for a passive, low-cost option. As long as the wind is blowing and it does not need to blow hard and they are moving the air without affecting your electric bill. Their passive nature makes them less powerful than electric or solar fans, but they are still remarkably effective.



Solar fans are similar to electric fans, but instead of plugging into your home’s electrical system, they have integrated solar panels and run on solar energy. They’re not usually controlled by a thermostat, but rather run continuously as long as the sun shines. This means adequate and unobstructed sunlight is necessary in any location you are considering. There are many different models out there.

What are UV Lights for HVAC?  Five Common Questions and Answers.


Are Viruses and Bacteria Within My HVAC System a Health Concern?

Yes, and this has been scientifically proven. Contamination in HVAC units is a widespread issue that should not be ignored. This contamination often contributes to related diseases, like viral or bacterial infections, allergic rhinitis, asthma and hypersensitivity pneumonitis, according to the National Institute of Health.

Does Air Filtration with UV fixtures Help?

The lights kill the germs that hide inside your HVAC system, helping the machine run at its best. Overall, the right HVAC UV light can improve the quality of your indoor air and the functionality of your system. If you have a central heating and cooling system, the light is well worth the investment

Are UV light safe?

Direct exposure to the UV-C used in HVAC systems is hazardous, particularly to the skin and eyes. Damage can be considerable and sometimes permanent, so careful installation by a qualified technician is necessary to ensure safety. With proper installation, UV lights can be very effective at killing viruses, mold, and bacteria.

How Often Should You Change Your Lamp?

The frequency of changing a UV lamp for effective indoor air quality depends on how you are using the system. Typically, a UV lamp being used primarily to disinfect the air circulating through a home or small office should be replaced every 9000 hours or approximately every 12 months.

What Are The Most Common Types Of UV Lights For My HVAC Unit?

Coil-mounted UV fixtures are installed at the coils and drain pans of the HVAC system. This are often used on larger systems that have more room to mount the fixtures.

In-duct UV fixtures are an option when air handling units are smaller and there is not enough room to set up a coil-mounted system. They are also effective at disinfecting air as it passes through the system and before it reaches rooms, providing an extra layer of protection.

Thinking of updating your electrical panel? What are the benefits of upgrading your electrical panel?


Overheating or unusual sounds emitted from your electrical panel may indicate potential fire hazards. Updating the panel can resolve dangerous issues and improve the safety of your home. It can also provide more of a consistent power supply throughout your home, resolving issues like flickering lights, frequent breaker trips or blown fuses. Upgrades can also allow for future expansion of your electrical system and the addition of needed outlets, and can increase your home’s value.

Electrical service in an older home may not deliver the amount of electricity needed to power modern devices and appliances. As technology improves, you need a panel that will serve your energy needs going forward. Damaged and ineffective wiring, fuses, or breakers can create an electrocution and are a fire hazard and should be repaired or replaced to ensure the safety of your home and family.

Air Purifiers

If you suffer from allergies or get frequent colds, an air purifier will help you breathe easier and sleep better.  Home air purification systems, kill up to 99% of germs, pollen, and mold.




UV Lamps

UV lamps were designed to successfully prevent the growth of mold and bacteria in your home. Installing a UV light to your HVAC unit will kill any mold or bacteria growth. Having one or several bulbs installed will emit ultraviolet light inside the unit to prevent the spread of harmful viruses and bacteria.





Clean or Replace Air Filters Regularly

Air filters keep the air cleaner, and keeps debris and dust out of the air ducts by trapping dust and allergens before they escape into the air.
