Do you want to save money on your utility bills? Of course you do! We all want to save money on our utility bills. The question is how can you save money on your utility bills without having to change your energy usage or spending a small fortune. Attic fans are one of the most affordable, energy efficient, and effective ways to reduce your energy bill.
The temperature in your attic impacts your energy costs more than almost any other factor.
That is due to a combination of factors:
1. the surface area of the drywall that separates the inside of the home from the outside. Drywall is not a great insulator. If you ever put your hand on drywall that borders the attic of your home, you will be able to feel a significant amount of heat radiating from the drywall.
2. The temperature within your attic compared to the temperature outside. We all know the temperatures in Los Angeles can reach well over 100. That pales in comparison to your attic temperatures which can top out at 150-160 degrees Fahrenheit.
3. Lowering the temperature in your attic will reduce the amount of energy it takes to cool your home. Attic fans (also called gables) will suck the heat out of your attic alowing for the cooler outside air to come into the attic. These fans can be setup to turn on automatically once the temperature reaches a certain degrees. They can also be setup so you can manually turn them on and off.

Spending a small amount to have attic fans installed will save you a fortune in cooling costs. They are one of the cheapest ways to conserve energy. We are surprised all homes in Los Angeles do not have them yet.
