OUR ATTIC FANS REVOLUTIONIZE HOME COOLING

Attic fans keep your attic safe and your attic cool and ventilated all year long. An attic fan can save you up to 30% on your A/C cooling costs by just cooling your attic space. They allow you to cool and ventilate the largest portion of your home that A/C doesn’t reach. This process of cooling and ventilating your attic allows your home to stay cooler, longer because it is no longer working against your attic which can get up to 160ºF. An attic fan not only works to keep your attic cooler but it also keeps your home safe from humidity and heat damage!

QuietCool offers the best line of smart attic fans, solar attic fans, and traditional attic fans, allowing you to find the best ventilation option for your home and attic.

WHAT IS AN ATTIC FAN AND WHAT THEY CAN DO FOR YOUR HOME

An attic fan replaces the air inside of your attic with the air outside using the existing attic vents. They are usually installed on a gable vent or into the roof of the home.

With energy costs higher than ever, many homeowners are looking for ways to reduce their bills while still keeping the whole house cool. Choosing a more energy-efficient air conditioner is one solution but for many homes, an even better solution is an attic exhaust fan.

QuietCool Solar Attic Fans are the most powerful solar attic fans on the market today. Our line of solar attic fans utilize solar power to keep your home & attic cool, ventilated, and safe throughout the day and include an AC/DC inverter, so your fan can continue running during nighttime hours or when the sun is not out. Our solar fans have a large industry leading solar panel to ensure max performance.

Our solar attic fans have an ultra-energy efficient DC Motor that allows the fan to never stop cooling, ventilating and exhausting your attic. This motor leads the industry-leader in durability with no maintenance.

HOW TO SIZE AN ATTIC FAN:

A properly sized attic fan is very important for homeowners to get the maximum benefits.

Most manufacturers recommend sizing an attic fan at 2 to 3 CFM (cubic feet of air per minute) per square foot of living space. This recommendation is typically based on the location that your home is located in.

  • For example, for coastal or mountain climates, the recommendation is typically 2 CFM per square foot.
  • For more inland climates, the recommendation is typically 2.5 CFM per square foot.
  • For desert climates, the recommendation is typically 3 CFM per square foot.

3 TYPES OF ATTIC FANS

There are three types of attic fans. All three types can be installed on a gable end or roof mounted application.

SMART ATTIC FANS

ROOF AND GABLE APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE

Smart attic fans are the newest revolution in the attic fan industry.

A smart attic fan features a built-in thermostat and/or humidistat that directly controls the motor speed based on the conditions in the attic. By self-adjusting to the attic conditions, the fan is able to maintain an optimum year-round attic climate while minimizing energy consumption.

In the summer months, a smart attic fan will prevent the attic from reaching scorching hot temperatures that, in turn, transfer into the living space below.

These smart fans typically feature a smartphone app that offers the ability to control all parameters of the fan from temperature settings, humidity settings, and it even allows you to see the current conditions in the attic.

Studies have even shown that a smart attic fan can keep your attic within 10 degrees of the outside temperature, even during the peak heat of the day.
Solar Fans

SOLAR ATTIC FANS

ROOF AND GABLE APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE

Solar Attic Fans are ideal for any homeowner who wants attic cooling but does not want to use any more electricity. This helps the homeowner save the maximum dollar amount on their electricity bill every month.

These fans operate solely by using solar power to push air from the attic vents, throughout the attic space, and back outside. Some solar attic fans come with an AC/DC Inverter, which allows you to run your fan throughout the day and night by switching from solar power to electricity automatically.

If you only want to use solar power, you can choose to have the inverter disconnected on install. Solar attic fans are ideal for any homeowner looking to keep the world green and their home cool and healthier.

TRADITIONAL ATTIC FANS

GABLE APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE

Traditional Attic Fans are what most homeowners have in their homes when it comes to attic fans. These fans push a lot of air, are powerful, and reliable. These fans often come with a thermostat and are single speed only typically that can be set to when you want your the fan to run and can push air at up to 2,000 CFM. These attic fans are typically less expensive and perfect for anyone who wants a cheap alternative to their high A/C costs.

WHY PURCHASE A GABLE ATTIC FAN FOR YOUR HOME?

Rather than bringing in fresh air from the inside of the home like a whole house fan, for instance, a gable attic fan is a specific type of fan designed to remove the hot, stale air from the attic of a home. You will feel the benefit of this fan mostly on your cooling bill. Since gable attic fans remove the hottest air in the home, your air conditioner will be more efficient and you may be able to run it less while still effectively cooling your home.

USING ATTIC FANS IN
COLD CLIMATES

Attic fans are very popular in cold climates because they can help to prevent ice damming in attics during the coldest months of the year. A typical attic can build up a lot of moisture during the winter due to the warm temperature in the home and the cool temperature outside and in the attic which can cause serious problems to appliances in the attic or even the structure of the home. By ventilating the attic, it can help mitigate that humidity build-up. With a smart attic fan, customers simply go into their smartphone app and change the climate setting to Winter; no climbing up into the attic needed!No need to enter

INCREASE ATTIC VENTILATION

So you got a whole house fan but need to add more venting. Sometimes that’s easy! Just add a gable and a few O’Hagins. But other times, it can be much more difficult. One area that can address the lack of venting is called “power venting.”

Power venting is the process in which a whole house fan is powered on and the attic fan is powered on as well to help move the air out faster.

We recommend using an attic fan to boost the ventilation when you are 1 to 2 square feet shy of the venting requirement.

 

WHY ATTIC FANS ARE REALLY WORTH IT

Attic ventilation is crucial to homeowners because attics can be like an oven on top of your home, heating up your living space from above. When mid-summer comes around, a typical attic can reach temperatures of over 160 degrees! In a two-story home, this heat can make the top floor unbearable! Installing an attic fan helps to lower those outrageous temperatures in the attic, thus helping the home stay cooler. For this reason, they can help homeowners feel more comfortable.

If living more comfortably is not enough to attract you to an attic fan, perhaps saving money on your electric bill while preserving your most expensive home appliance will. All homeowners dread running their air conditioner. Families often fight over the thermostat, weighing the pros & cons before reluctantly turning their A/C system on, knowing their electric bill is steadily rising.

An attic fan’s ability to cool down the attic, something that the A/C can’t, will equate to a home that is cooler and an A/C unit that gets far less work than it usually does, which could save money on upsetting repairs further down the road.

Other A/C related anguish includes homeowners being frustrated by the apparent delay period for their A/C system. For the first few minutes, homeowners can hear their A/C system running but the home does not feel any cooler. The reason for this is the duct work for the air conditioner is surrounded by extreme attic temperatures. These temperatures obviously heat up the duct work so when the system is first turned on, it begins at a deficit. The duct work must first cool down before homeowners feel any noticeable difference in the living space. This is where the attic fan comes in! As we said before, attic fans greatly reduce the temperature in the attic which means your duct work will also stay cooler! This translates to your HVAC system reaching the set temperature much quicker, allowing it to run more efficiently, thus creating a more comfortable living environment, all while extending the life of your most expensive home appliance!

Attic Fans

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ATTIC FANS AND WHOLE HOUSE FANS

Attic fans are often confused for whole house fans. Back in the 1960s when whole house fans were invented, they were very popular in the South and were, incorrectly, called “attic fans” since they were installed in the attic. This confusion remains very prevalent today.

A whole house fan is used for cooling both the home and attic. You typically run a whole house fan during the evening through into the early morning – basically any time it is cooler outside. This cools, ventilates, and exhausts all the hot, stale air in your home and attic. You would never run your whole house fan during the middle of the day when it is the warmest. This is where an attic fan comes in.

Attic fans ventilate and exhaust your attic only. You use them primarily during the day but they work well in the evening and night as well. They pull air from the outside through existing vents in your attic. This allows your attic to stay within 10ºF of the outside temperature at all times when the fan is running. Without an attic fan, your attic can get up to 150ºF during the summer, which can ruin the integrity of your home and cause high electric bills.

The best system combines an attic fan and a whole house fan to cool, ventilate, and exhaust the entire home, day and night, and year-round.

ATTIC FANS VS AIR CONDITION COSTS

Depending on what kind of the attic fan you are installing, you can expect to pay between $350 to $1,000 installed. The pricing varies based on the type of attic fan, the sizing requirements, and the motor type.

Depending on the size of your home, a brand new central air system installed can cost up to $20,000 and is a very complicated installation.

As well, many homeowners are choosing to install a attic fan if their A/C breaks and are in need of A/C repair. A/C repair can be extremely expensive.

The climate in which you live in is the main factor how much you will save off your cooling costs but you can save up to 30% off your a/c cooling cost. An attic fan only costs around a few pennies an hour to run versus dollar with a/c.

ATTIC FAN FAQS

Have you every noticed your A/C cycling on and off during the summer? That is because your house is heating up almost instantly after the A/C turns off because of all the heat that is built up in your attic. By running an attic fan, your attic temperature will be up to 50 degrees cooler meaning your A/C won’t have to work as hard to keep the home cool.

 

Both work well, but they serve different purposes. Attic fans simply cool and ventilate the attic while a whole house fan cools and ventilates the entire homes, including the attic. A whole house fan should only be used during the cooler times of the day while an attic fan can be used 24/7.

 

The amount of electricity used will depend on the type of attic fan that you install.

Traditional attic fans typically use less efficient motors and move less air meaning they are less efficient.

Smart attic fans typically use much more efficient motors and move more air meaning they are more efficient.

Solar attic fans are the most efficient as they will use no electricity when there is sunlight available.

Electric powered attic fans use between 20 and 400 watts, depending on the speed the fan is running on and the model chosen. Compare this to an A/C system that can use upwards of 3000 watts.

 

Yes, there will be no negative effects when running them both at the same time. You can run the attic fan with or without the A/C running.

Depending on the type of vents you have in your attic, you can choose to install a gable mounted attic fan or a roof mounted attic fan.

SMART ATTIC FAN FAQS

The only time you need to connect to a smart attic fan is to see the current conditions of the attic or to make parameter adjustments. 

For typical Bluetooth products, only one device can connect at a time, however, you can have as many devices as you want paired to the Bluetooth product.
