In the heat and humidity that plague Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties for the better part of the year, it’s not always easy to keep air circulating, especially in areas of your home not outfitted for AC. Not only is stagnant and still air uncomfortable, it can pose a health risk. Humidity brings a damp environment into areas like your attic. Condensation can find its way not your walls and beams, creating the ideal environment for mold and mildew to take hold.
An unbearably hot attic doesn’t just cause damage to the inside. Your roof tiles and sub-roof can become warped and loose, causing degradation and leaks. Leaks mean even more moisture in your attic, which only adds to the hostile environment. What’s a homeowner to do?

Attic fan installation provides you and your family with protection form the intense Florida heat. When the weather cools or when the rain moves in, your attic fan will provide enough ventilation to prevent damage and help to efficiently warm your home as well. The attic fan specialists at Hoffman Electrical & A/C can help you select the right attic fan to enhance your home’s comfort system, protect your attic, and safeguard your roof.
Installation of your attic fan is typically done in one day.

The cost of operating your fan is nominal and the benefits are instant. Your attic will cool down significantly within hours of your attic fan installation, saving you money immediately.
In addition to providing a breeding ground for mold and mildew, damp attics can also make it easy for wood, tiles, and anything stored in that space, to warp, ruining household items, as well as compromising your roof tiles, joists, and other structural components of your roof and home. Almost all attics have ventilation which is deemed adequate, but in reality, doesn’t provide much air flow. Even with the in-place vents, temperatures in your attic can rise to above 150 degrees!
These extreme temperatures cause problems for your home’s cooling system. Your AC must work that much harder to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home and that puts a strain on your cooling system, causing components to break down that much sooner. All that air conditioner overtime takes a toll on your wallet—in the form of higher electric bills.
By promoting significant air flow, attic fans can cool things down in your attic and lower the humidity. Not only does this make it impossible for dangerous mold and harmful mildew to take hold, but by moving the air in your attic, you’re improving the efficiency of your home’s cooling system and lessening the harsh heat’s impact on your roof. Investing in an attic fan provides many rewards, today and in the future.
In order to reap all of the benefits of your attic fan, it’s necessary to have professional installation. Your attic fan is hard-wired to your home’s electrical system and requires the experience and knowledge of the certified professionals at Hoffman Electrical & A/C. Attempting to install an attic fan on your own is never advisable, and very dangerous. Among other scenarios, you could easily compromise your homes electrical wiring, which could result in fire or other significant damage.
