Re: More efficient way to run air conditioning?
There are two types of "attic fans."
One is intended to keep the attic area cooler by pulling air through the attic from the soffet openings to the eectric fan (or wind turbines).
The second type of attic fan is located on the ceiling inside the house. Leaving windows slightly open, exterior doors (screened) open, the fan pulls air through the house and the moving air cools you off. We use it to keep our attic contents from baking, not expecting it to impact our AC bill.
I've had both in different homes, different climates.
A fan (or fans) inside the house will move the air around and eliminate hot/cold spots in the rooms they occupy.
Leaving the AC/furnance fan on moves air thoughout the entire house, but uses more energy than ceiling fans.
