The dog days of summer are upon us, and it can seem like the days just keep getting hotter. We
constantly keep needing to draw more power into the home in order to keep our families cool
and comfortable. However, more now than ever, we need to step back and ask ourselves if we
are treating our homes with enough care. At this time of year, your home and its electrical
circuits usually start to feel the strain. A great way to ease this overload on our electrical circuits
is by installing attic fans and a dedicated circuit upgrade for your A/C.
During the summer, our attics really start to swelter. In the peak summer months when outdoor
temperatures get to around 90℉, attic temperatures can get even higher. These extreme
temperatures can put a lot of stress on your house as it tries to cool itself down. It also makes it
a struggle for you when you need to access the attic. With a new attic fan installed, your attic
can expel the hot air and draw cooler air in from outside. These are usually best run late in the
evening or early in the morning when the air is at its coolest. Not only would this help your home
cool itself easier, but it can also help extend the life of your roof by taking away excess heat.
Dedicated Circuit Upgrades For Your A/C
As we all know, your home is constantly drawing energy during the summer to cool itself. Heavy
A/C use along with the constant use of appliances like refrigerators, ovens, toasters and hair
dryers can put a lot of strain on your circuit breakers, maybe even causing them to overload or
blow a fuse. Making a dedicated circuit upgrade for your A/C ensures that your system can pull
enough energy while making sure the power grid of your home stays stable and secure.
Making these two additions to your home can really put your home at ease from the heat and
make keeping cool much safer for you and your family. If you feel that your home would benefit
from these services, be sure to give Kelly Electric a call today! Our kind and professional staff is
fully equipped with the tools and skills to keep your home safe and cool this summer.
