How Whole House Fans Work
Save over 60% on your Electric Bill
Whole House Fan Systems keep your home cool by pulling in fresh air through your open windows or open entry ways and blowing the stagnant hot air out of your home through the attic. If you’ve ever been in your attic on a hot summer day, you’ll notice that it can be 20 to 30 degrees hotter than the average temperature in your house. This illustration shows how the system moves cool air your house and purges hot air through the attic.
A Whole House Fan System can also help minimize the amount of time you need to run your air conditioner. On some days, depending on the weather, you won’t even need to run the AC at all!
Fresh Air – The Limitations of an Air Conditioner
During the summer months, many of us keep all our windows closed and run the AC the whole time. By doing this though, heat gets trapped in the walls and attic which makes cooling your house an up hill battle.
Circulate or Exchange
Another problem with completely closing your home up is that it makes the AC recirculate old air while stagnant pockets form within your home because your AC unit cannot create enough pressure to circulate all the air in your home.
