HOW TO SIZE A WHOLE HOUSE FAN:

A properly sized Advanced Whole House fan is very important for homeowners to get the maximum benefits.

Most manufacturers recommend sizing a Advanced Whole House 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.

HOW TO SIZE A WHOLE HOUSE FAN:

When to use a Advanced Whole House Fan and how is a crucial aspect of receiving as many benefits as possible from these fans. The first important step is to ensure that the outdoor air is a temperature you would like in your own home. If it is, simply open 3-4 windows 2-3 inches wide and turn on your Advanced Whole House Fan. This process will flush in the outdoor air and flush out your stale, indoor air.

An Advanced Whole House Fan is most effectively used when it is run at the proper time, however, the way in which it is used is very important as well.

When using a Advanced Whole House Fan, the first important step is making sure the outside temperature is lower than the inside temperature.

If the temperature outside is lower than the temperature inside, the next step is to open 3 to 4 windows, 4 to 6 inches each. Make sure to open windows in the locations that you want the breeze to come from.

Lastly, turn your Advanced Whole House Fan on high speed. It is always best to start on high speed, and as the temperature in your house begins to drop, you can lower the speed of the fan.

USING WHOLE HOUSE FANS
IN HIGH POLLEN AREAS

One of the biggest concerns consumers have is about dust and pollen entering the home through open windows. An Advanced Whole House Fan moves up to 10x more air than a typical A/C unit so people think that this amount of airflow will bring pollutants, dust, dirt, and more inside their home. In most markets, this is not the case. Most places do not have a high level of dust or pollen so this is not an issue. However, in areas that do get dusty, a homeowner can simply purchase anti-pollen and dust screens that are very affordable. They can block up to 99% of the dust and pollen from entering your home. You typically only need to replace a few window screens in your home because with an Advanced Whole House Fan system you will understand that there are only a few windows you will open up when in use.

 
 

USING WHOLE HOUSE FANS IN
HUMID CLIMATES

Many people think that a Advanced Whole House fan cannot be used in humid climates. While it is true that it is never good to run an Advanced Whole House Fan during the most humid times of the day, most areas in the United States that have high humidity have a large drop in the humidity percentage around the time when you would run your whole house fan.

The humidity level is usually high in the early morning and drops down to its lowest point in the late afternoon. Homeowners in these areas will turn their Advanced Whole House fan on in the late afternoon or early nighttime hours and enjoy the benefits of the Advanced Whole House Fan while the humidity is at an ideal level. By the time early morning comes, the homeowner will shut off the Advanced Whole House Fan and enjoy a cooler house all day long.

Here you will find the US states and the average humidity level during different times of the day. ASHRAE* suggests a range of 45% – 55% humidity to manage health effects and illnesses.

Per ASHRAE and other health agencies, the most ideal range for humidity inside of the home is 30% to 65% with a suggested range of 45% – 55% to manage health effects and illnesses.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHOLE HOUSE FANS AND ATTIC FANS

There is a lot of confusion about the difference between an attic fan and a Advanced Whole House Fan. They’re very different products but they work in tandem to cool and ventilate your home during the day and night. During the 1960s, when Advanced Whole House Fans were invented, they were very popular in the south and people called them attic fans. This is what has caused the confusion today.

An Advanced Whole House Fan is used for cooling both the home and attic. You typically run them 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 Advanced 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. Attic fans 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.

Even during the winter months, homeowners can use an attic fan. In the winter, moisture and mold can build up due to the air in the home being very warm versus the air in the attic being very cold. The snow on the roof then becomes ice and holds the excess water. This is called ice damming and it is what creates mold, mildew, and premature roof rotting. With an attic fan, the constant flow of air in the attic lowers the overall humidity level and helps keep the attic healthy.

The best system combines an attic fan and a Advanced Whole House Fan to cool, ventilate, and exhaust the entire home, day and night, and year-round.

WHY EVERY HOME NEEDS AN ADVANCED WHOLE HOUSE FAN REGARDLESS IF YOU HAVE SOLAR

Advanced Whole house fans are the perfect pairing to create a net zero home. An Advanced Whole House Fan can offset your most expensive appliance, the A/C system, while your solar can offset the rest of the house making sure you have a net zero home without sacrificing ventilation, comfort or indoor air quality. Watch our quick video that explains why every home needs an Advanced Whole House Fan system.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ADVANCED WHOLE HOUSE FANS AND AIR CONDITIONING

An Advanced Whole House Fan can cool your home, just like an air conditioning system, but in a completely different way. A/C systems work well but is much more expensive to install and is the single most expensive appliance to run in your home causing higher energy bills during the warmer months of the year.

Central A/C works by pulling the air that is inside your home through a condenser to cool the air down and pushes it out the A/C vents in your home. This is a closed loop system that offers no indoor air quality benefits as it is just recycling the existing air in your home.

This process is much more complicated than an Advanced Whole House Fan and uses a lot of energy.

With an Advanced Whole House Fan, you simply open a window when it is cooler outside than it is inside and turn the fan on. This will bring the cool air in and exhaust the hot air out.

The only advantage with an A/C system is that you can run an A/C system regardless of how warm it is outside whereas an Advanced Whole House Fan you should only run it when it’s cooler outside during the warmer months of the year.

SAVINGS AND ROI OF AN ADVANCED WHOLE HOUSE FAN

According to the United Stated Department of Energy, Advanced Whole House Fans are the most cost-effective way to cool your home. UCLA states that Advanced Whole House Fans can eliminate A/C usage in 10 of the 16 climate zones in California.

While these two major research organizations praising the benefits, Advanced Whole House Fans are being recognized in the new home construction industry as one of the best products that can be installed in a home. With an Advanced Whole House Fan, builders are using smaller solar systems, better rated insulation, and an Advanced whole house fan to reach a net zero home.

A Net Zero home is a home that creates the same amount of energy as it uses, meaning its load is effectively zero on the electricity grid. The goal for California is to get to Net Zero home construction by 2024. Since A/C makes up between 60 to 80% of homeowners utility bills, an Advanced Whole House Fan is one of the best ways to get to a Net Zero home cost effectively.

The average home uses between 1200 to 3000 hours of A/C usage, depending on the climate zone in which the house is located in. With a Advanced Whole House Fan saving up to 90% on A/C usage, homeowners are able to achieve an average return on investment between 1 and 3 year, or better put, one of the fastest ROIs available for green energy products.

COST OF ADVANCED WHOLE HOUSE FANS VS AIR CONDITIONING

Depending on the size of the Advanced Whole House Fan you are installing, you can expect to pay between $500 to $3000 installed. The pricing varies based on the type of whole house 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 an Advanced Whole House 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 that will dictate if you should install a central air conditioning system or an Advanced Whole House Fan. Some climates will still need to use A/C, even with an Advanced Whole House Fan, while other climates can completely eliminate their A/C usage.

EXPERIENCE A MORE COMFORTABLE WAY TO LIVE

Being comfortable in your own home is essential. This is why our products ensure you can experience a relaxing breeze, whenever you need it.

Simply turn your Advanced Whole House Fan on and experience a natural, cool breeze in the matter of seconds. This creates an active breeze across you home making you feel instantly 5 to 10 degrees cooler.

During the summer months it can get really hot upstairs in a 2 or 3 story home. Sometime not even an air conditioning can cool off the upstairs of a home on a hot summer day. Advanced Whole House Fans are the best way to cool a hot upstairs and allow you to stop having those hot sleepless nights.

ADVANCED WHOLE HOUSE FANS NOISE LEVELS BY DECIBELS

Advanced whole house fans have a decibel range between 40 to 52 decibels. The sound level of an advanced whole house fan is very comparable to a normal A/C running in your home. Check out this graph to see a comparison in decibel levels of your most common in-home appliances and other things that make noise. You will see that the advanced whole house fans are very quiet. This is accomplished by separating the motor housing away from your air register directly at the ceiling level. Remember that the old traditional style whole house fans that are very noisy are not comparable to the new, advanced whole house fans which can be over 40dB quieter.

IMPROVING YOUR HOME’S INDOOR AIR QUALITY

With new viruses emerging and homes and buildings being built tighter and tighter, it is very important to make sure the air quality inside your home is good.

Advanced Whole House Fans have many benefits besides just cooling the home and help reducing electricity costs. They help to greatly improve the indoor air quality of a home by exhausting and ventilating the hot, stuffy and polluted air that is inside the home. Many homeowners think that the air outside is dusty and dirty and oppose to opening their windows, however, according to the American Lung Association, the air inside the home is up to 2 to 5 times more polluted than the outdoor air. This is due to the chemicals that are used in the home, pet dander, germs, allergens, etc.

This means that when a homeowner is running their Advanced Whole House Fan, they are getting rid of the polluted air inside their home and replacing it with cool, fresh outdoor air. Many customers state that their allergies went away when they installed the Advanced Whole House Fan!

EVERYWHERE IN THE US THERE IS
20-50º F TEMPERATURE SWING

A typical family only focuses on the high temperature forecast when looking at the weather data for the week. This is because you normally are planning your day and focusing on what attire you should be wearing for the conditions. It is very rare to focus on the low forecast during the warmer months of the year. The low forecast is exactly what you need to pay attention to when running an Advanced Whole House Fan. There is a huge change between the high of the day compared to the low of the day in practically all locations in the US. It can range anywhere from 20 to 50 degrees difference, and in some cases, even more. This is why Advanced Whole House Fans Work in just about every climate zone. As soon as that temperature swing kicks in and it cools off outside, it is the perfect time to run your Advanced Whole House Fan.
