Why Install an Attic Exhaust Fan?

Many attics are without proper ventilation. Heat rises, causing the temperatures in your attic to reach well over 150 degrees. This affects your whole house by making other rooms warmer too. In fact, the heat in your attic can eat up around 20% of your utility bills alone.

Poor ventilation also contributes to the formation of molds. Increased heat and humidity can create areas where mold can thrive in your home. This can damage some of your precious belongings, create health issues, and even destroy your roof.

Benefits of Attic Exhaust Fans

Exhaust fans are an easy solution for heat and humidity problems in your attic. They also quickly pay off in incredible benefits, including:

  • Lower Utility Bills
  • Improved Comfort in Your Home
  • Lower Temperatures
  • Protects Priceless Items in Storage in the Attic
  • Helps Protect Against Mold
  • Helps Protect Against Damage to Roofing Materials
  • Decreases Humidity

With all of these benefits, it’s easy to see why Attic Exhaust Fan Installations are a top priority for homeowners.

Signs of an Overheated Attic

Before you begin any fan installations, you should inspect your attic for current ventilation issues or damage. Look for these signs of overheating in your attic:

  • Curled Up Shingles
  • Bunching in Shingles Along the Seams
  • Frost in the Attic During Winter
  • Clogged Vents

Your trusted electrician in Virginia Beach can help you inspect your attic and determine how many exhaust fans you need for proper ventilation. Nipper Electric has 20 years of experience installing attic exhaust fans and we are always happy to answer your questions or concerns.

How Do Attic Exhaust Fans Help My Home?

exhaust_ventilationVentilation is a big part of keeping your home mold free, comfortable, and strong. Homes without any ventilation will be harder to heat, wear down quicker and have more instances of mold or decay.

Exhaust fans in the attic work to circulate air throughout the home as well as removing hot air out of the attic. For the right kind of ventilation, you will need to have a system of fans and vents. Each attic exhaust fan that is mounted high on the roof should be partnered with a vent that is placed lower on the roof so the air is pulled out of your attic. Multiple vents and fans are better for creating the right kind of ventilation.

Which Exhaust Fan Is Best?

Attic Exhaust Fans come in two basic designs, roof installations, and gable installations.

  • Roof Installation Exhaust Fans- These fans are mounted on flashes of sheet metal or plastic bases. They are installed near the top of the roof. Once they’ve been installed, shingles will be placed over and around the flashing.
  • Gable Installation Exhaust Fans- These fans are easily installed under a gable. In fact, they are often placed in the space of an existing gable vent.

Depending on the size of your attic, you may need multiple attic exhaust fans. Most homes call for a single square foot roof vent for every 300 or so square feet of attic space. The more you use your attic the more you will need exhaust fans.

Reasonable price, quality work and exceptional customer service/relations! My wife and I were expecting a baby any day when we encountered an electrical issue in the nursery that we needed fixed as soon as possible. I called Nipper Electric and Trey Nipper called me back 10 minutes later. They were able to send out a technician who found and fixed the issue the same day. Given our busy schedule with baby planning, it was a relief to work with a company like Nipper who took care of our issue quickly. We will definitely be using Nipper Electric in the future. If you are in the search for an electrician, your search is over... just give Nipper Electric a call.read more

Nipper Electric is by far the best electrician company I have ever hired. Trey and his guys ROCK! They do such exemplary work every time. Last fall, they rewired practically our entire home and modernized our system in the walls, meters, lighting, ceiling fans, outlets, under-counter lighting. You name it; they do it. Such a class act and so professional, GRADE "A" WORK. I can't say enough about this organization and their crew. From start to finish, they dealt with all the inspections, went above and beyond the norm. We just had Nipper Electric back at our home yesterday with outside lighting, more indoor work, and, once again, their work is exceptional. My Mom hired them to rework her under-counter lighting that was put in by another "not-up-to-par" electrician less than a year ago. She was so unhappy with her only 9-month old under-counter lighting that she decided to hire Nipper Electric because of the great work they did for my brother and me. And she is so happy with her new under-counter lighting replacement by Nipper Electric. She only wishes my brother and I had found them before she had her kitchen lighting installed. She's so happy now! And my brother and I are again giving rave reviews to Nipper Electric. Thank you Trey, Zach and Jessie. We feel like you guys are friends now! Thanks, Nancy Y. Smithread more

I was extremely impressed with this company, beginning with the VP, Trey, who came to my home to assess my particular situation, which was to convert a Fiberstars fiberoptic pool light to an LED light. Trey is highly intelligent and willing to take the time to research the situation at hand and study the data I had managed to collect for this undertaking. The electricians, Zack and Jessie, who came to do the work were also highy professional, congenial, hard-working, and knowledgeable and completed the task iwith exceptional efficiency in spite of the fact that they had never done such a conversion before. I am delighted with the outcome and would highly recommend Nipper Electric for any of your electrical needs.read more

Trey and Zack installed a variety of lights all over our home. The installation included wall sconces, recessed ceiling lights, combo bathroom exhaust/light fans, and under counter kitchen led lights. Their work was very professionally done, without any setbacks. They cleaned up after the job was finished and left our house spotless. You can't go wrong with this company.read more
