    Benefits of an Attic Gable Fan

    Lower The Temperature of Your Home

    Your attic acts as a buffer between your house and the outside air. As the temperature outside rises, your attic can become too home, making the barrier between the hot outside air and the rest of your home less effective. A gable fan helps keep your house comfortable by lowering the rise of hot air in the attic.

    Reduce Moisture in the Attic 

    As heat builds in your attic it can lead to more humidity being trapped in the enclosed space. This can lead to moisture damage and mold or mildew growth. Installing a gable fan can help keep your attic dry by stopping the excessive heat and moisture from being trapped.

    Decrease Your Utility Bills

    Your HVAC uses a lot of energy and this can cost you a lot of money trying to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. By installing a gable fan you can help support your HVAC, allowing your system to not have to work as hard. This can help homeowners save money and lower utility bills.

    Protects Your Roof 

    Attic heat, when not controlled, can lead to damage occurring to the vital, structural parts of your home. For instance, roof shingles can warp when exposed to extreme underlying heat. Insulation and electrical wiring can also be damaged from heat and moisture exposure. Installing a gable fan in your attic can help you protect the structural components of your home, meaning you lower costs on replacement and repair.

    Is Your Attic Right for a Gable Fan?

    When deciding whether a gable fan is right for your attic, there are a few factors you should consider. First, is if there is enough space on the sides of your attic to install the soffit vents that are required. 

    Does your attic hold HVAC equipment? If so, it needs to be well-sealed and insulated for your gable fan to properly work. Otherwise, your fan could end up pulling cool air out of your living space, causing your HVAC to work harder than necessary.  

    Finally, is your attic insulated? If your attic is well insulated a gable fan may not be needed, and your attic could already be set up to control temperature and moisture. However, if your attic is not sufficiently insulated, a gable fan can work with your insulation to get the desired result.

    Why Proper Installation Matters

    How well your gable fan functions depends on how well it was installed. If yoru fan is not positioned properly or is placed in the wrong area, it may not generate enough ventilation in your attic to work at its best.

    A gable fan must also be installed properly to maximize its energy efficiency. If your fan is not properly configured, you could end up paying more for your gable fan. 

    A Gable Fan is Not Your Average Fan

    Unlike a whole-house fan, a gable fan is used in the concentrated, compact area of your attic to regulate a small amount of air. They are used to keep your attic cool and dry, whereas a whole-house fan is typically used in a drier climate and are mostly beneficial in the summer. Gable fans, on the other hand, are useful all year, as they can also be used to prevent ice damage from occurring in the middle of winter. 

    Roof-mounted fans are another popular choice for attics, but they are not the same as a gable fan. A roof-mounted fan is installed over a vent in the roof and covers less area than a gable fan. These help lower the temperature of the attic, but won’t keep your attic as cool as a gable fan.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    What is the difference between a gable fan and a whole house fan?

    A gable fan is an exhaust fan that keeps moisture and heat from accumulating in your attic. A whole house fan takes the air from outside and cools down your entire home. Contact Attic Projects today to get a free estimate on gable and whole house fans.

    Why is my roof constantly unstable after a few years of getting new shingles?

    When an attic collects moisture that has risen from heat, it can damage your roof. Not only can your roof suffer, but your wiring, insulation, and plumbing could be at risk. If you are looking into a gable fan to fix these issues, contact Attic Projects today.

    Are there any attic requirements needed before getting a gable fan installed?

    Yes. Gable fans are more effective in attics that are correctly air-sealed and have enough space on the eaves and sides of the attic to allow for the installation of the required soffit vents. Contact Attic Projects today to see if your home meets the requirements for a gable fan.

    Why should I choose a gable fan for my attic?

    Gable fans regular air in small compact areas of your home. While whole house fans work better in drier climates, gable fans work best in any climate. Call Attic Projects today to get a free inspection for which fan is right for your home.
