The effectiveness of Whole House Fans
California is actually mandating that whole house fans are installed in about 80% of all new homes. This is happening because UCLA came out with a study that found a home with a whole house fan essentially eliminate the use for air conditioning in 10 of the 16 California climate zones. Pacific Gas and Electric state that whole house fans can save up to 50-90% off your A/C related energy costs and A/C makes up about 60-80% of your utility bill!
Whole house fans do a lot more than just save you money. They can actually make your home healthier. Did you know that according to the American Medical Association, indoor air pollution is directly responsible for as much as ⅓ of our national health bill? A whole house fan takes all the stuffy air inside the home and completely replaces it with fresh outdoor air.
You may be thinking outdoor air is polluted but according to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air pollution can be 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air, even in major metropolitan cities.
If you’re tired of running your A/C and having high electric bills than you need to check out whole house fans by QuietCool.
