Attic Fan Installation
For Northern Virginia Homes
Attic Fan Installation Service
Attic fans are important to homes in the Northern Virginia area. With the high heat, we experience in the summer homes in this area require them. Attic ventilation will make your home more comfortable while lowering energy bills. Your home’s air conditioner will run less and won’t work as hard to cool your living spaces. Hot humid air is vented via an attic fan while drawing fresh air across surfaces. With the addition of an attic fan, your attic will be drier and cooler.
An attic fan is installed at the roof level and regulates the heat level of a home’s attic by allowing hot air to escape, while roof vents draw in fresh air from outside.
Attic fans operate during the heat of the day to reduce attic heat buildup by ventilating the attic space. An attic fan runs during the heat of the day, removing super-heated air through roof vent connection, and creates a negative pressure that draws cooler, outside air in through the venting. This mitigates the heat buildup, keeping the attic temperature as close to ambient as possible.
Benefits Of An Attic Fan

During hot summer days and nights in Virginia keeping your home cool can be a real challenge when your attic is hot. The hot air in your attic is stagnated and trapped without any way to escape without an attic fan to assist in continuously exchanging the attic air. With the proper installation of an attic fan, you will save money on your cooling expenses by exchanging the air in the attic removing the hot air making your air conditioner more efficient.
Remove Damaging Moisture
Cool evening air can cause condensation and it can collect on insulation and your wood rafters during the summer. In the wintertime, moisture will escape from your living space and can condense in the attic. These condensation conditions can cause damaging rot, mold, mildew, and bring costly repairs. With the addition of an attic fan, the air is properly moving the air and virtually eliminates damaging moisture.
