Attic and Whole House Ventilation
There are two ways that Four Seasons can install a ventilation system in the home. The first is only concerned with lowering the temperatures in the attic, and the second is used to cool the entire home.

This will make you home even more uncomfortable without the air conditioner running, or it could even drive up the costs of cooling your home when the air conditioner is operating.
