Is your home properly ventilated? Not sure how to tell? Call Frisco Metal Roofing Contractors today and we can help. If your home is not properly ventilated, it can raise your energy costs as well as cause drafts and other issues. Old vents should be replaced after 10 years and if you are not sure how old your vents are, you can call for a free inspection!
Attic fans are intended to cool hot attics by drawing in cooler outside air from attic vents (soffit and gable) and pushing hot air to the outside. However, if your attic has blocked soffit vents and is not well sealed from the rest of the house, attic fans will suck cool conditioned air up out of the house and into the attic. This will use more energy and make your air conditioner work harder, which will increase your summer utility bill.
