Is Your Attic More Like A Sauna Than An Attic?
On hot summer days, attics can get close to 150 to 160 degrees! This is fifty to sixty degrees higher than what the attic should be. An attic with temperatures this high internally can cause asphalt shingles to bake and break down. Higher temperatures in the attic can also cause the air conditioning system to work a lot harder and increase the cost of your energy bills. Solar fans are a great way to release heat during the summer and prevent condensation from forming in the roof.
