The Importance of Fans

by Anthony Webb 12/24/2018

With rising energy costs and temperature extremes, fans are a great investment for your home. They help lower energy costs in both the summer and winter by helping move the air you want to the right locations in your house. More than that, fans can be a lovely decorative addition to any room and can increase the value of your home.

Built-in Fans

If your home doesn’t have central air-conditioning, or even if it does, a whole house fan can help reduce your cooling costs and make your house more comfortable year-round. Better for the environment than air conditioning systems, the latest designs are quiet and can lower skin temperatures by as much as 10 degrees. These fans, located in hallways or stairwells and venting into the attic, pull air through open windows to reduce the temperature of the whole house. Just want the fan in the attic? Both whole-house and attic-only fans vent warm air out to help protect your roof from heat warping damage. The main difference is that an attic fan doesn’t draw air through the living spaces. It can be a great augmentation to a whole house H-VAC system.

Next time you go to an open house, make sure to note existing fans and take pictures of areas that would benefit from new fan installation.
