As you prepare for another hot summer, you are probably anticipating high electric bills. Running an air conditioner can be very costly, but it is necessary. In extreme heat, it is important to stay safe and out of the heat. You can help offset your electricity bill by using a ceiling fan and portable fans. One of the problems that you are probably not even aware of is the hot air that is trapped in your attic. The hot air makes it extremely difficult to keep the house cool when it is sitting under a hot air bubble. An electrician in Glendale recommends you look into having an attic fan installed. You can count on H Electric to provide you with a professional electrician who can take care of the installation for you.
Hot air rises and in your home it rises to your ceiling and into your attic. If you have a two-story home, the second floor is trapped between the hot air rising from the first floor and the hot air trapped in the attic. You may notice you struggle to get the second floor cool enough for you to sleep comfortably. Your first reaction may be to crank up the air conditioner a bit to offset the heat on the upper floor. This is where your electricity bill takes a hit.
An attic fan will need to be installed by an electrician who is familiar with Glendale electrical work. The fan will pull the hot air out of the attic and pull in fresh air from outside. A thermostat will be connected to the fan to control when it kicks on and shuts off. By removing the hot air, you can help keep your home cooler while saving on your electric bill. If you would like to schedule your attic fan installation, give H Electric a call today.
