Whole House Fans are the fastest growing method of keeping your house cool without relying on expensive air conditioning. Also called Attic Fans, Whole House Fans utilize the principles of airflow and convection to cool your home more efficiently.
Energy consumption tends to rise by over 30% during the summer months. A Whole House Fan has the potential to cut your summer energy bill dramatically while keeping you just as cool. As an added bonus, you’ll be doing the earth a favor by reducing your personal energy consumption.
The air in a typical house is stagnant, stale, and of considerably lower quality than outside air. Whole House Fans get the air in your home moving to keep it fresh, clean, and cool.
Whole House Fans don’t take hot air and turn it into cool air the way A/C does. Instead they harness the cool air currents that already naturally exist in your home environment.
When you turn on your Whole House Fan and open the windows in your home, the fan will draw the hot, stale air from around your home and expel it through your attic. At the same time, it draws in cooler air from outside and creates a comfortable cross breeze.
Whole House Fans are especially effective in the cooler hours of the day: in the evening, during the night, and in the early morning. A Whole House Fan isn’t meant to replace your A/C outright, but to supplement it. Run your A/C during the hot hours of the day if there’s anyone at home. Then in the evening, when most people are getting home from work, cut the A/C and turn on the Whole House Fan.
You can reduce your A/C usage dramatically and save a fortune on your summer energy bill.
