Green alternatives for air conditioning in the summer
It’s not only during winter that you have to keep an eye on energy costs. Extensive use of air-conditioners and other cooling equipment can send energy costs sky-rocketing during summers too. One way of combating this is to go green. Take a look at these green alternatives to cool down this summer:
During hot weather, heat rises and collects in the attic. An attic fan helps circulate that accumulated heat and directs it outside to keep the interiors of the house cool. A thermostat-controlled attic fan will also help remove hot air from the attic and circulate air from the cooling system throughout your home.
Keep the size and volume of the attic in mind and install the attic fan. Place it according to your requirements, in any direction, wherever you want the air flow. It can be wired to the house’s electrical system or plugged into an outlet. You can install it in the roof or on the attic wall.
An attic fan reduces energy costs considerably. Used with an air-conditioner, an attic fan lowers the temperatures inside the home and reduces the pressure placed on your air-conditioner. This way you reduce the usage of the air-conditioner and save on energy. The Whole House Attic fan, Direct Drive, cools your home 5 to 10 times faster than central air conditioning at a fraction of the cost. And it reduces home cooling bills up to 90%.
For a greener planet, go with a solar powered attic fan. It’s more economical and brings down the costs of maintaining and running an air-conditioner. Solar fans are designed to attract the maximum amount of sunlight possible. Solar fans allow you to draw hot air and moisture out of the attic and discharge it to the exterior. They’re durable and weatherproof. They’re generally powder-coated to reduce the panel’s temperature while allowing air to circulate.
Check out the Natural Light, 50 watt gray solar powered attic fan. It is energy-efficient and operates silently. It reduces the load on your air-conditioner and cools the roof. It is designed for curb mounted applications for both homes and commercial use.
