Whole House Fans
When the weather becomes unbearably hot in the summer, it's natural to turn on your air conditioner for hours on end to keep cool. What if there was a more efficient way to cooling your home? This can be accomplished by installing a whole house fan.
How does a whole house fan work?
The whole house fan is engineered to cool your home by circulating air throughout it continuously. The fan is installed in your home's attic, with accompanying vents installed throughout the home to create an air corridor.
When the fan is turned on, air is drawn into the house through the windows and up into the attic. As the air passes through your home, it cools it down, much like a cool breeze, but on command. Warm air is vented outside as the air moves into the attic.
While using a whole house fan cooling system will not be as effective as using an air conditioner to cool your home, it will be more cost effective. Running your air conditioner 24 hours a day, seven days a week is inefficient and wasteful of both energy and money—but using a whole house fan allows you to use your AC system far less.
A whole house fan is an excellent way to keep your home cool early in the morning or later in the afternoon when the weather cools down a bit. You can stay comfortable in your home without using as much energy. In fact, using a whole house fan instead of your AC could save you between 50 and 90 percent on energy costs.
