Whole House Fans
What exactly are whole house fans?
A whole house fan is a fantastic alternative to traditional air conditioning. Replacing an AC with a fan system means a significant savings in energy costs and a quieter living space with great air quality.
This energy efficient system works by pulling cooler air from outside your home to the inside, creating a natural cross breeze between the interior of your home and open windows. Turn on the fan when the house cools in the evening, and the whole house ventilation fan will bring in fresh, cool air. The hot air from the home is vented out through an exhaust system creating a home that is cool through the evening and the next day.
Benefits of Whole House Fans:
- Major savings compared to traditional AC (up to 90% savings)
- Quiet system - little to no noise
- Brings in fresh air (similar to cross breeze)
- Ventilates your home for better air quality
- Exhausts odors and replaces air
How do Whole House Fans Work?
The whole house fan pulls cool outdoor air into your home, through your windows, across your living space, into the attic, and out the attic vents, effectively replacing the hot, stale air. This can cool your home and attic by up to 30 degrees, allowing it to stay much cooler the following day.
By opening the windows in the rooms of your home that you want cooled, the fan creates a breeze inside the home, making your family instantly feel up to 10 degrees cooler. As the evening progresses, open more windows in other rooms of your home. We recommend installing the fan in bedrooms to enjoy the cooling air with your door closed.
Why You’ll Save
Saving money on your high electricity bills during the hot months of the year is most likely your priority. You shouldn't have to choose between comfort and high energy costs to cool your home. With a whole house fan, you can turn off your air conditioner and save up to 90% on electricity costs. But temperature isn’t the only factor in cooling a home. Humidity and insulation still play a part in keeping your home comfortable and cool.
