Attic Temperature



Most people don’t know that a home’s attic can reach temperatures of up to 150 ºF during summer. And a hot attic above, creates a hot house below!

Because your thermostat reads only ambient air temperature, you can never really tell how hot the thermal mass is in your home.

Check this out. This is what the home looks like without QuietCool. This is the main reason your A/C cycles on and off all summer long which drives up your electric bill. A basic principle of thermodynamics is that a hot mass home gains and retains heat faster and more intensely than a cool mass home. As a result, your A/C will never run at its peak efficiency if it is cycling on and off. It takes 15 to 20 minutes of continuous runtime to reach your peak efficiency on your A/C no matter if your A/C is new or old.

This is what the home looks like after running the QuietCool for a few hours in the evening time. You can see the the thermal image is now blue and yellow, which represents cool mass.

QuietCool removes heat from mass, whereas air conditioning removes heat from ambient air only. QuietCool is the perfect companion to A/C because it will help you use it less, you will save money through lower electricity bills, and your a/c will last longer and run more efficiently.
