We purchased an older home earlier this year with a finished attic. The attic has no heat or air conditioning (we live in Michigan). We are looking for inexpensive ways to cool the attic this summer and assist us in heating it this winter. In the future, we will be routing the central heat system into the attic, however; we need a temporary fix.
I have read that wind turbines work great for cooling in the summer, but have little/no experience with these. Would it be feasible to install wind turbines for the cooling and re-insulate the attic and install electrical baseboard heat as a temporary fix for the Michigan winters?
