I live on Long Island in NY state close to the ocean and have two fans in my attic -- they have been there since I bought the house and I have already replaced them once BUT after reading your 10/12 article re these fans, I'm wondering if I should disconnect them. My attic floor is insulated with blown in cellulose and I have soffit vents and four normal passive vents already in the roof. I do have my air-handler in the attic along with soft duct work to various top floor A/C outlets. My home is 73' x 31'
It makes sense to me that these fans are drawing my air conditioned cool air into the attic but I was concerned that I could cause damage to something if I disconnected?
Thanks for any help you can give me.
