Is It Too hot In Your Upstairs Rooms?
Then you need a powered roof vent (roof fan) installed!
Lower the cost of your cooling bill and make it cooler in your home,
especially in the upstairs rooms of your house this summer!
Then save money on your electric bill continuously after installation from now on every year!
Temperatures can reach up to 150 degrees in poorly vented attics!
Excessive heat can damage the wood rafters, roof decking, cause nails to come loose (nail pops) from extreme temperature variation causing excess contraction & expansion of wood, premature shingle failure, cracks in drywall tape joints, damage stored things in attic; even promote fires!
We will replace a non-working or burnt out power vent or install a new power vent from scratch. We like the GAF ERV6 1500 CFM electric power vent bought at Home Depot.
Simple static vents, turtle back vents, or ridge vents do not provide nearly enough ventilation. Shingled type and metal type ridge vents are both leak prone and do not provide very efficient ventilation.
Originally, ridge vents were designed for the sole purpose of providing ventilation for vaulted (cathedral) ceilings. We do not install turbine vents because they leak through the blades on the top, especially if they stop spinning. If you have an open attic type designed roof structure, electric powered vents are much more effective at removing hot air from attics than ridge vents, etc..
We guarantee our power vent installations for at least two years. (Length of guarantee sometimes depends on the condition of the surrounding shingles).
Really with few exceptions every home should have electric power vents (roof fans) installed!
Warning: Do not allow an electrician, homeowner, or other inexperienced person try to install your new power vent(s) on the roof surface for you. This would be very dangerous for them and the new power vent(s) would probably leak, not function properly, etc..
Note: Sources of air intake such as gable end vents, soffit (eve) vents, etc. are required for power vents to function efficiently.
When your central air conditioner has to work harder because it's too hot upstairs, then it uses more electricity than necessary. Cool your attic down, and the air conditioner, which draws a lot of amperage, does not have to run as often! Saves money on your cooling bill.
