How To Protect The AC Unit In Your Attic
We received a question through our website just the other day. A customer asked, “Hey! It’s hot outside, and my house is hot inside. How can I cool my house down?” This customer was interested in our radiant barrier as a house-cooling solution.
Have Radiant Barrier Installed
Radiant barrier will help cool your house down, but more specifically it will cool the attic down. Now that it’s so hot outside your attic is getting up to 130, 140—even 150 degrees! Your air conditioning unit and your ductwork are sitting in that heat.
Check Your Attic Insulation and Ventilation
Besides our radiant barrier, insulation and ventilation are also important to regulate the temperature of your attic. These things attack the problem at the source, which is your hot attic. Any machinery up there, including your air conditioning system, is going to have an extremely difficult time operating when it’s that hot. It doesn’t have to be room temperature up there to get your house cool, but it can’t be 140 degrees. The machinery simply cannot operate well under those conditions.
Our customers are extremely happy when we cool the attic down 40 degrees. Once we can get your attic cooled down, that will make your whole house cooler!
