The solar-powered attic fans not only save on electricity, but they are much more effective at removing the proper amount of air from the attic.
Batavia, Illinois (PRWEB) August 29, 2014
As the summer winds down and the kids head back to school, Confident Aire is announcing an end-of-season clearance on solar attic fans to make room for fall home-comfort merchandise.
Confident Aire, Inc., a professional heating, cooling and plumbing company announced today it will be closing out all remaining inventory of solar attic fans. Homewoners can now purchase these solar-powered attic ventilation devices at a $100 discount.
"We are really encouraging all of our customers to consider replacing their electric-powered attic fans with the solar-powered fans from Solatube," reports Tom Wangler, President of Confident Aire and long-time expert in home heating and cooling efficiency. "The solar-powered attic fans not only save on electricity, but they are much more effective at removing the proper amount of air from the attic," adds Wangler.
Too much air flow through the attic from electric fans can actually exhaust more air than the eave vents bring in. This can cause already heated or cooled air to be sucked out from the home. This reduces the overall energy efficiency of the home and results in higher utility bills for the homeowner.
Experts in attic ventilation reveal that when the attic floor is properly insulated and any air ducts and hatchways in the attic are properly sealed, there is very minimal need for ventilation in the attic. The primary purpose of continuous attic ventilation is to remove excessive moisture, thereby avoiding condensation build-up that may drip down through the insulation and find its way into the interior of the home. When condensation saturates the insulation, it renders it useless. Attics with improper ventilation therefore can promote not only interior damage due to water leakage, but heat loss due to sub-standard insulation.
The typical cost of a solar attic fan from Confident Aire is $875. With the discount promotion, these fans are now available for a price of only $775. This includes professional installation on the rooftop. The pricing applies whether a homeowner is interested in replacing an existing electric fan with a solar one or installing an attic fan for the first time.
"It has been a relatively cool summer," says Wangler, "but that doesn't mean the attic doesn't need the same ventilation. Proper attic ventilation is essential during both winter and summer months to preserve the life of your roof and keep your energy consumption as minimal as possible," advises Tom Wangler.
