how can I cool my attic space?
To head off these problems, consider these options for bringing your attic's temperature down:

Where should I put my air handler in my house?
To avoid the need for long ducting that can reduce efficiency, the air handler is best installed as close to the center of the home as possible. Two common installation choices are a utility closet inside the house or a well-sealed equipment room in the garage.
