Indianapolis Solar Attic Fans
Indianapolis Solar Powered Attic Fans are powered by sunlight and can greatly increase your Indianapolis home’s energy efficiency by assisting with the ventilation of your attic. In the summer, heat build-up in your attic can reach 160°, and the winter, moisture can build up in your attic and lead to ice damming as well mold and mildew growth. Solar powered attic fans will remove hot air from your attic in the summer and cold, moist air in the winter to prevent these damaging effects, so you’ll have effective, year-round ventilation.
The professionals at Thomas Jefferson Roofing & Remodeling can install a solar attic fan for your home to help keep it cooler in the summer months and protect it during the winter months. Attic fans can greatly improve your home’s energy efficiency, saving you loads of money on monthly utility costs, and because they’re powered by sunlight, they won’t raise your electricity costs. They’re also extremely environmentally friendly.

Cooling Your Home in the Summer
During the peak summer months, your attic’s temperatures can easily rise to more than 160°F. When the temperatures of your attic are that high, it can increase the amount of electricity your air conditioner uses to cool your Indianapolis home.
Solar attic fans will work to remove that heat build-up, bringing your attic’s temperatures closer to the outdoor air’s and making your AC system much more efficient.
This reduction in heat will also extend and improve the lifespan of your roofing and attic construction materials.
Protecting Your Home in the Winter
When you’re heating your home in the winter, that moist, warm air will rise into your attic where it will collide with cold underside of your roofing. Solar attic fans will prevent that moist air from condensing when it comes into contact with colder temperatures, which will keep your attic much drier during this season. This helps to keep mold and mildew from growing in your Indianapolis home’s attic, and it also helps to prevent ice dams from forming on your roof.
Protecting your attic from high humidity levels also helps to prevent saturated insulation and sheetrock pops, which can cause damage to the drywall inside your home.
