Is the summer heat ruining your comfort???
Sweat no more! We have a cost-effective and environment-friendly substitute for air conditioning. Whole house fans will help cool your home down. This option helps keep your home temperature as well as your bills on track. The recent models of whole house fans are less noisy. They dilute the toxins and pollutants and freshens up the air.
What exactly is a whole house fan?
Whole house fans allow you to beat the heat by forcing hot air out of your home. The hot air escapes through the attic space. It brings in cooler outside air through your windows.
How do they differ from traditional house fans???
Whole house fans do the work of both house fans and attic fans. Whole house fans bring down the temperature, but conventional fans do not. You can save money by reducing your reliance on air conditioning.
An average house fan uses up to 78 to 400 watts of power versus air conditioners, which use over 3000 watts. Whole house fans use fifteen percent of the energy used by your air conditioner. When you consider the high cost of electric bills, whole-house fans are a smart option.
There are many types of whole house fans. The most popular style that we sell is Quiet Cool. These whole-house fans have a reputation for running quietly. Most whole-house fans at big box hardware stores are very loud.
How to Select a Quiet Cool House Fan?
CFM or cubic feet per minute are the most critical factors when choosing a whole house fan. This measures how much air the fan can move and determines how big of a house the fan can cool. Also, ensure that the fans offer variable speeds so that you can control the amount of air movement.
The next element is the control switch. The fan will either have an on/off switch with speed control or a timer with speed control. The timer is better as it will allow you to switch the fan off after a predetermined time interval.
Dampers are critical to the functioning of the house fan. While the fan is on, the dampers open to allow airflow. When the fan is off, they block air from your house going into your attic and Visa Versa. Adequate opening and closing of louvers are necessary for the house fan’s insulation. The newer Quiet Cool whole house fans offer better dampers. The dampers isolate your attic heat from the cooler air in your home during the summer. They also insulate attic cold from the warmth in your house in the winter.
