Lower the cooling costs in your New Jersey home!
The installation of a power vent can save you money and help your air conditioning system operate more effectively at the same time. To top it off, this relatively low investment can be recouped by your monthly cost savings over time.
Installing a power vent in your roof allows the exhaust fan to push the hot air outside, and your cooling system to work more efficiently and effectively. The power vent works automatically, pushing the hot air out when it reaches a certain temperature setting in its self-contained thermostat. The cost of installing a power vent is estimated to be between $500 and $650.
The benefit of a power fan is evident in winter as well, saving your home from excess moisture build up and subsequent mold growth. Installing a power fan can save you a headache and any surprises when you decide to sell your New York/New Jersey home [see pre- sale inspections].
Power vents come in different sizes and for you to get the most out of the fan you need to determine the appropriate size for your home. Consider measuring the square footage of your attic and multiply the number by seven, this number will be the number of cubic feet per minute (cfm) that you will need.
