Lower Your Energy Costs
Phoenix’s Best Attic Ventilation
Keeping your whole home cool in the most efficient ways possible is our top priority. Let us help ensure a cooler summer by starting in the warmest part of your home — your attic. Because, once all that heat infiltrates your home, it’s up to your air conditioner to bring the temperature down again. And when you consider just how hot it can get in your attic during a Phoenix summer (attic spaces alone can exceed 180°), it’s no wonder that your energy bills may seem out of control.
At Precision Air & Plumbing, we’re dedicated to helping you lower your energy costs and keeping your home comfortable all year long, which is exactly what a passive attic vent will do. Even if you think your attic is already ventilated, research shows that most houses do not have sufficient or properly placed attic ventilation, leading to higher energy costs and overworked AC units. We’re here to help!
What Attic Vents Do:
- Durable, non-mechanical, low-profile, high performance attic vents are strategically placed in roof
- Properly balanced ventilation releases heat build-up in attic
- Energy moves up & outward
- Passive ventilation has no moving parts & requires no energy to work
- Ducting, AC, roofing & other attic components will all operate more effectively
- Lower heat load and attic pressure, increase AC efficiency
Heat enters your attic right through the roof. The hot summer sun beats down on your shingles, heating them up. This heat has to go somewhere, so it moves down through the shingles and into the plywood of your roof deck. You may think that insulation you’ve placed below the deck will stop any further heat transfer, but unfortunately, this just isn’t true. The heated surfaces will just transfer the heat to the insulation itself, plus the walls, beams and any other surfaces they touch. This heats up the air in your attic and drives that heat downward… right into your home. Remember, the rule of heat conductivity is that heat will always look for a cooler place to go. While heat rises, it’s still making its way into your cooler living spaces at the same time.
The air inside your attic can reach temperatures upwards of 180 degrees—far hotter than it actually gets outdoors. Vents allow the desert heat to escape by both letting it rise and ensuring that it doesn’t remain trapped in your living space. This lowers the heat load in your attic and the air pressure at the same time. The result is a more comfortable home and an air conditioning unit that doesn’t have to work as hard. In turn, you also get lower energy bills because the passive vents have no moving parts and require no energy to work. Vents allow your AC to run more efficiently, which translates into lower energy costs.
Lower Energy Costs Have Never Looked So Good
When you call Precision Air & Plumbing to vent your attic, we’ll find the best places to install the vents to maximize their effectiveness. Then, we’ll insert the low profile non-mechanical vents right into your roof, sealing the edges beneath your shingles. Finally, we’ll help them blend right into your roofline by giving them a spray coating to match your shingles. The end result is a vented attic that functions and looks nearly identical to your formerly much warmer attic. Whether you’re in Scottsdale, Chandler, Gilbert, Avondale or anywhere else in the greater Phoenix area, the only thing you’ll notice is a more comfortable home and lower energy bills.
