Moist air is present in Florida year round. Humidity in attics causes mold and mildew, as well as wood rot and other structural issues. Combined with intense heat (attic temperatures can exceed 160 degrees Fahrenheit during hot summer days), excess moisture can also affect the climate inside your home, which means a greater strain on your HVAC system and higher energy bills. A solar attic fan can reduce attic temperatures by 50 degrees and remove excess moisture, the effect of which is a cooler attic and prolonged roof life. Watch this short video clip to hear more about the benefits of solar attic fans versus other types of attic ventilation systems.
