Installing an attic fan is an affordable way to control the temperature in your home. It will circulate and cool the air. Installing a fan is a simple job that most people can do on their own. Here are a few tips.

Fan Location

Where you decide to install the fan can really affect the efficiency. It will need to be installed in an area that allows for proper exhaust to the outside. You also need to consider where the ceiling opening will be. Depending on how your house has been constructed, it could be vertical or horizontal.

Type of Fan

The way the fan is mounted will be based largely on the type of fan you choose. A solar fan cannot be too far from the solar panel that powers it. An electric fan can be mounted almost anywhere and still be effective, since it relies on a constant energy source.
