Fan That Tried

During a Pleasanton home inspection, a creative solution for cooling the attic space was spotted.

Yes, a table top fan was tied to the roof directly under a roof vent.

On a hot summer day, attic temperatures can easily hit 135 – 150F with a dark color asphalt shingle roof.

This was a sizeable attic space and it would take a lot of air volume moving through the attic for any significant cooling to take place.

A single 12″ oscillating fan set to the stationary position has a negligible effect on attic cooling… it’s a waste of electricity and since it was plugged in an extension cord, a potential fire concern.
