Until they go up into their attic in the middle of August, most people have no idea how hot their house can really get. Needless to say, all that trapped heat has an effect on your effort to keep the living spaces of your home cool.
One of the best ways to beat this trap is to install an attic fan. Attic fan installation takes only a small amount of time and it can start cooling your house off immediately. There are units that run on solar power, units that have thermostats to switch them on and off at the appropriate time, and even simple ones where you flip a switch to turn them on or off at your own leisure.
A little upfront investment is going to make a huge difference in your summertime utility bill as well as your ability to relax inside your cool home.
