Cool Attic CX1500UPS Power Gable Mount Ventilator Fan, Home Roof Vent Cooling Fan, 1300 CFM
June 8, 2019 UPDATE:
I haven’t been able to gauge a difference in my electric bill, but the house is noticeably more comfortable.
My AC ducts run through the attic, so dropping the attic 10-15 degrees, means the air in the ducts are cooler and the house temperature drops faster, but I’m not sure if the savings in AC is offset by the cost to run the fan.
I set the attic fan thermostat at 105°/110° and added a timer to shut it off by 9:pm. Once the sun stops beating on the roof, natural convection will take over. No reason for me to pay to force air out.
According to a Kill-A-Watt meter, 1 fan costs me about .08¢ hour to run. My Air Conditioner costs about $1.10 hour.
Currently I run 2 fans at $1.44 a day. If the fan cuts 1 hour of AC usage, it is awash. But in my case I never intended to use the attic fan for savings. It cools the attic which cools the AC ducts and that makes the house cooler and more comfortable. I’m sure there is a small savings, but a big improvement in comfort when California has several 100° days in a row.
