Most Energy Efficient Home Heating and Cooling Systems

If your Austin home does not have proper attic insulation, has leaking air ducts, or needs more attic ventilation; even the most energy efficient home heating and cooling system can still be using excessive amounts of energy and wasting your money on high utility bills.

You can determine how efficient your home heating and cooling system is by scheduling a no cost home energy audit from A Cooler House Austin or from other professional contractors in your area that specialize in home energy efficiency.

Why Install Solar Vents

The sun's rays super heat your roof causing attic temperatures to soar, sometimes to over 160 F! This heat forces its way through your insulation and into your home, then your AC system must remove the heat from your living space... and that will cost you a bundle!

As for homes in Austin... the more ventilation you have the better.

You have a couple of attic ventilation options:Attic Venting Illustrated

  • Natural ventilation (Wind Turbines, Static, and Soffit Vents) or;

  • Powered vents (Solar, or hard wired)

 

Solar Powered Vents

A Cooler House's solar powered attic fans automatically exhausts super-heated attic air before it can get into your living space; it's on at dawn shuts down as the sun sets. Cooler outside air is quietly pulled into the attic through eve or soffit vents and exhausted back outside.

Please note that one solar-powered attic fan normally requires at least 12 fully open 8" x 16" soffit (eve) intake vents to provide a source of cooler intake ventilation.

Advantages of solar ventilation over traditional power ventilation:Solar Powered Attic Fan

Natural Ventilation Wind Turbine / Whirlybird

If powered fans are not a option "Wind Turbines" along with adequate soffit ventilation would be the next best thing. A Cooler house installs only the best wind turbines with ball bearing operation. You can also step up to a 14 inch from the standard 12 inch turbines. We will install the turbines high on the peak your roof so as to catch as much wind as possible, giving you maximum savings.

Passive Vent

 

When home owner associations are a problem simple Air Hawks may be the answer. These low-cost passive vents provide for added air flow when no other application will work; combined with adequate soffit ventilation Air Hawks can be a relatively effective ventilation solution.
