Attic Fans Can Bring Relief from Portland’s Heat in the Summer
Even in a moderate climate like Portland, summer temperatures can make some houses miserable to stay in. In certain situations, attic fans can help greatly solve that issue.
A properly vented attic, with a balance of functional intake and passive exhaust vents (or ridge venting) should typically be adequate to ventilate your attic. However, with the multitude of home designs present, there is no shortage of unique situations that will benefit from an attic fan to help increase the proper airflow. When airflow in an attic space is restricted, numerous problems can occur, including mold, higher heating and cooling cost, and possibly worst of all, lots of discomfort during the hot months during Portland’s summer.
