Can Exhaust Fans Cool Down My House?

In just a few more weeks, we won’t be worrying about staying cool in the Rochester area. But for now, summer is still here and temperatures will be uncomfortable at times. If you’ve been running your air conditioner all season long, it’s time to give it and your wallet a much needed rest. You might be thinking, “well then how will I stay cool?” Don’t worry, the simple solution is to utilize your ceiling fans and exhaust fans in conjunction with one another.

Why You Feel Hot In The First Place

Believe it or not, it’s not necessarily the actual temperature that causes people to feel overheated. Of course, it does play a part, but the main reason we feel hot and sweaty is because of excess moisture in the air. Think about climates where it’s hot, but dry – temperatures can soar well into the 90s, but the dry air makes it seem much more bearable.

Can Exhaust Fans Help?

While exhaust fans won’t actually lower the temperature of the room, they can surely help draw out some of the excess humidity making it feel much more comfortable. Running them while your have your ceiling fans circulating is a great way to draw cooler air in from outside during the night while getting rid of that hot, sticky air. Just remember to open windows and doors strategically – keep them closed during the day and open them up at night.
