Attic Fans play an very important role in your home or business, especially during the summer months. Attics fans greatly reduce the heat inside the attic which significantly lowers energy costs.
It's a common misconception that attic fans are not needed, considering that most people aren't spending time in the attic, and the heat produced up there may not be of any real concern. However, an attic fan can drastically effect the comfort level in your home or business. The greatest benefit of using an attic fan is the fact that it removes strain off of your air conditioning system.
When the attic is extremely hot, heat will radiate down into your home, through wooden beams, supports, and so on. This can make the temperature in your living space rise even higher, putting unnecessary stress on your system. It can also add up to higher cooling costs. The use of an attic fan can help you to cool your home more efficiently, while reducing strain on your system and cutting down on cooling costs. Attic fans can also increase the life of your roof and over-all safety of the home by greatly reducing high temperatures during summer months.
Whole House Surge Protector
Whole House Surge Protectors guard your home against all types of power surges. This includes lighting storms, utility surges and common in-home surges. Power surges are responsible for millions of dollars in damage every year.
Power surges are sudden and unexpected spikes in voltage that travel throughout your electrical system. Some surges come from within your own home, such as turning on a dryer or sending a document to your printer. Other surges come from outside your home, as in electric utility switching, downed power poles, cut power lines, and lightning strikes.
For example, if lightning struck your home, or somewhere around it, a surge may go through the electrical system and anything that is plugged in could be destroyed, whether it is turned on or off. Homeowners end up having to pay out of pocket to replace these appliances and equipment. We all have expensive electronics in our homes like kitchen appliances, water heaters, etc., which are vulnerable to power surges. These items can be protected with a whole house surge protector. Additionally entertainment equipment and/or computers can be protected with a surge bar.
