Attic Ventilation Solutions for New Braunfels, TX, Homeowners
One of the leading culprits of excessive home energy usage is a hot attic. The temperatures inside your attic can soar, especially in the warm summer seasons, and can work against the efforts of your HVAC system as it tries to cool your home. This is especially true if your HVAC is located in the attic, where it can overheat. To minimize the hot air in your attic, turn to Texas Pro Insulators for improved attic ventilation.
Two Products for Minimizing Hot Air in the Attic
In order to relieve pressure on your HVAC, hot air in your attic needs to escape. To help in this effort, we offer two effective attic ventilation products: ridge vents and solar fans. Here’s how each works:
These vents are installed along the ridge of the roof and allow hot air to naturally rise out of the attic. A roof ridge vent can not only improve energy efficiency by helping to keep your attic cool, but it can also prolong the roof’s lifespan.
Powered by solar energy and therefore requiring no additional energy usage, our solar attic fans suck hot air out of that attic while also pulling cool air in. The result is a cooler attic with less risk of mold growth. And, our solar attic fans are subsidized with a 26% federal tax credit!
Pairing Attic Ventilation With Insulation
For the best results at keeping your attic cool, Texas Pro Insulators recommends pairing ridge vents or solar fans with radiant barrier insulation. This phenomenal product covers the attic’s roof and sidewalls to reflect heat out of the home. With all of these upgrades working together, the temperature in your attic can fall by as much as 50 degrees! The energy-savings benefits of this result can provide a substantial return on investment.
