Indoor Air Quality

- Maintenance Program
In our area, the heat of the summer season definitely outshines the cold of the winter weather. While it is still necessary to have a great heating system installed in your home if you wish to make it through the colder time of the year comfortably, a lot of focus is rightly put on home cooling systems. Two systems that you may have overlooked, but which can help your home to perform better, are the whole-house fan and the attic fan.
Since our company was started by two brothers with a little cash and a lot of goals, we have helped many homeowners throughout the area to rein in cooling costs without putting their comfort on the chopping block. One way in which we are able to do so is with the installation of whole-house or attic fans. If you are interested in incorporating such a system into your home, give RKM Heating and Air Conditioning a call today. We’ll guide you the right system for your home’s needs.
What Are Attic and Whole–House Fans?
There is often some confusion regarding whole–house fans and attic fans, specifically in what differentiates one from the other. Perhaps the simplest explanation is that an attic fan ventilates the attic only, while a whole–house fan functions as a primary cooling system that runs during the cooler times of the day. Both serve to ventilate the house, which helps to maintain great indoor air quality, but you should discuss your options with trained professionals to determine which is right for your needs.
The whole–house fan is mounted between the living space and the attic, running when temperatures outside are cooler—during the nighttime and early morning hours. Fresh air is drawn into the house through opened windows, while stale indoor air is pulled into the attic. This cooler air supplants the hot air that is in the attic, forcing it out through the vents in the roof.
Attic fans work during the hottest time of the day in order to prevent superheated air from building up in the attic. With the sun beating down on your roof and heat in your home naturally rising, the attic can become incredibly hot. Obviously, you’re not hanging out the in the attic. The point is not to make it a more comfortable place, though. It’s to prevent heat transfer through building materials from raising temperatures in your living space.
