What is a Whole House Fan Used For?
A whole house fan is a ventilation & cooling system that uses less energy than a traditional air conditioner. This energy-efficient system works by pulling cool, outdoor air into your home and out your attic vents. This helps keep the mass in your home cooler than an air conditioner can by extracting the heat stored in your walls, floor and furniture. With a whole house fan, you’re able to turn off your most expensive appliance, air conditioning, while improving the air quality and comfort of your home for just pennies per hour.
So to sum it up, a whole house fan is used for 3 main purposes:
Indoor air quality is one of the number one concerns of homeowners. In fact the Environmental Protection Agency states that indoor air is often 2-5x more polluted than outdoor air, EVEN IN SMOGGIEST METROPOLITAN AREAS. This is why it is crucial to ventilate your home in order to maintain a healthy environment. A properly sized whole house fan completely exchanges the air volume inside the home every 3 to 4 minutes. With the high amount of airflow a whole house fan is able to bring into the home, say goodbye to cooking odors, pet dander, smoke, germs, gases, & other unwanted airborne annoyances.
3. Last but certainly not least, Savings
Save up to 50-90% off AC related costs. Fact is, that an air conditioning system is the most expensive appliance in most homes across the country. Homeowners are saving serious money due to how energy efficient whole house fans are. With a whole house fan, A/C usage can be cut dramatically, or even eliminated completely in certain climate zones. Using a whole house fan to cool your home reduces the amount of time your A/C is in operation during the year, prolonging it’s lifespan and the cost to repair or replace your A/C system.
