Get a 30% Tax Credit When You Install a Solar Attic Vent Fan
Looking for ways to save money on your monthly energy bills? This summer was another scorcher, and your bills likely reflected the extra use on your AC. There are many simple ways to save some money on monthly bills, such as keeping the thermostat at no lower than about 78°. But some major energy upgrades can actually help you to save much more. Consider a solar attic fan for long-term savings, and a tax credit of up to 30%!
How Does a Solar Attic Fan Work?
A solar attic fan uses the energy of the sun to power a large fan in the attic. This is different than a whole-house fan, which is designed to help circulate air around the home. Instead, an attic vent fan can move heat out of the attic.
A vent is installed in your attic. The fan is installed to move hot air out of the attic, so that temperatures in the attic are no longer well over 100°. Having a cooler attic may help to keep your whole home cooler and reduce your bills!
Why Should You Add One to Your Home?
Heat rises naturally, which means that heat can really build up in your attic. When you are trying to keep the space cool, it doesn’t help that your ceiling is emanating heat, or that the ductwork may be in an area with extremely high temperatures.
Cooling down the attic can make a significant impact on your monthly bills. This is especially true when the fan runs on solar power—which is free! Your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard, and you get all of the benefits. The lifetime savings may eventually offset the cost of installation.
Many energy-efficient upgrades are eligible for tax credits as well! Federal tax credits may total 30% for the Attic Breeze solar-powered attic vent fan. Check with your local utility company for any additional rebates or credits you could qualify for.
