Acoustical Ducting – Behind the Name

One of the most recognizable features of the QuietCool whole house fan is the acoustical duct. The acoustical duct is a major component of how the word, “quiet” was first put into, QuietCool.

Traditional Whole House Fans

Traditional whole house fans consist of simply cutting a hole in the ceiling, and a louvered grille system is responsible for covering up the unsightly gap. Not only is this aesthetically unpleasing, but it doesn’t put any distance between the motor and the living space. Some customers have been known to compare their traditional whole house fan to a helicopter whirring around in their attic!

Thankfully, QuietCool came along, and put an end to this tragedy. With special thanks to the acoustical duct, the motor head of the QuietCool system is not located right above the ceiling, but is actually suspended in the attic 6-9 feet away! This distance helps mask the noise caused by the motor, and allows you to have a normal conversation, even when standing directly beneath the grille.

Everyone knows that the QuietCool whole house fan is manufactured right here in the U.S. and the acoustical ducting is no exception. We are one of only a few companies in the United States that manufactures their own acoustical ducting!

Not only that, QuietCool is the patent-holder for ducted whole house fans. Know when you buy QuietCool, you are buying the original ducted whole house fan.

Remember, if it doesn’t say QuietCool, it’s just another fan.
