An attic fan is designed to lower the temperature of an attic by exhausting hot air from the attic and replacing it with fresh outdoor air. This will increase the life of the roof and keep attic insulation from trapping heat and moisture. It will also help reduce the temperature of the top floor of the home.
Whole House Fans
Whole house fans are used to cool a house at night when the outdoor temperature has dropped to a comfortable level. Just open the windows and turn the whole house fan on; your home will completely circulate in the fresh outdoor air in just minutes.
A bath exhaust fan, when properly sized and ventilated, draws out stale, impure, and very humid air, improving quality of indoor air and protecting the surfaces of the bathroom from mold, mildew, rust, and cracking paint and wallpaper. Exhaust fans can also prevent deterioration of the joists and framing above the bathroom.
An exhaust hood or exhaust fan located in the kitchen will remove airborne grease, combustion products, fumes, smoke, odors, heat, and steam . . . and it may help prevent you from setting off the fire alarm when you leave the potatoes in the oven too long.
