A whole house fan is a quiet, natural and pleasant alternative for keeping your home cool and comfortable while saving big on home energy.
Whole house fans can reduce or even eliminate the need for air conditioning by taking advantage of the natural cooling cycles that nature provides. Here’s how they work: The whole house fan is mounted between your living space and the attic, and is operated in the evening, night-time, and morning when outside air is cool. The device draws cool fresh air in through open windows while exhausting hot stale air out through attic roof vents. This circulation creates a fresh and comfortable living environment and draws heat out of the structure to reduce/delay heat loading for the next day.
Cool, fresh air is drawn inside while hot, stale air is exhausted through the roof vents.
Traditional whole house fans are big, noisy and difficult to install. They often require fussy maintenance and are poorly sealed. In colder climates, these traditional type fans can create problems of heat loss and attic condensation in the winter. The new, energy efficient, and improved whole house fans represent a breakthrough in usability and practicality. They are compact, VERY QUIET, easier to install, and require no maintenance.
Plus, they have automatic, insulated doors so they are safe and convenient to use in four-season climates. With these fans, total energy use is equivalent to just one or two light bulbs!
The fan’s unique design allows for installation within your existing joist configuration.
