The Best Way to Cut Your Electricity Bill

Maximize Comfort and Savings with Solar Attic Fans

Air conditioning bills getting
the best of you?

Air conditioning bills getting the best of you?  Are you having a difficult time cooling your upstairs in the hot summer days?  Is your air conditioning unit running non-stop just to try to cool down your home?  Believe it or not, the solution to your problems may be inside your attic. 

Solar Attic Fans

Home Cooling Redefined

Many people don’t know this, but when it’s 90 degrees outside in our Utah desert climate, it’s probably between 125-140 degrees in your attic.  Between the blazing sun pushing radiant heat into your attic space and the fact that heat naturally rises in your home, your attic becomes a heat blanket that your air conditioning unit is fighting against.  I’m sure you were told by your builder that those vents in your eaves would bring in enough cool air to push the hot air out of your passive turtle vents on your roof, but they don’t provide enough airflow to sufficiently do the job.  Remove that excess heat and your air conditioning unit will not have to work so hard to cool down your home. 

Enter Wash Me Solar’s Solar Attic Fans.  We replace your existing passive turtle vents with a solar powered attic fan that sucks out the hot air from your attic and creates a vacuum effect that ultimately pulls more ambient outside air into your attic space.  Each of our fans has a thermostat and humidity sensor that hangs down inside your attic space measuring temperature and humidity levels. 

As soon as the temperature reaches 85 degrees in your attic or the humidity sensor reads 75% humidity, the fan kicks on immediately.  Our goal is to create a minimum of 10 total air exchanges per hour, ultimately reducing the temperature in your attic space down to within 15 degrees of the outside ambient temperature, a level that makes it much easier for your air conditioner to cool down your home.
