Power rooftop fan update
I live in North Central Texas. I recently had a new roof installed. On the advice of the roofing company project manager I had 2 roof top power vents installed. The thermostat is located on the fan, way up on the interior of the roof. The roofer set the thermostat to 90 degrees.
I read the article posted on GB, and wondered if there have been any improvements in the technology?
Since I don’t have access to the thermostat to the fans, I have been shutting them off by shutting off the breaker, which means no electricity to 1 room until sunset.
Should I have the roofer set the thermostats to a higher temperature or simply disconnect the fan?
