Is it hotter in your home than out on your Lanai? Do you wish there was an energy efficient way to cool down? The Whole House Fan takes the heat out of your home by drawing fresh air through your living space and pushing the hot air out of your attic.
- During the day the sun warms our homes. By the time we come home from work it’s often 10-15 degrees warmer inside our home that out on the Lanai.
- The Whole House Fan removes trapped heat from the living space of the home and pushes the heat out of the attic, thereby cooling the entire home.
- A properly sized and installed Whole House Fan will cool the home by 10-15 degrees in 5-10 minutes.
- The Whole House Fan uses a fraction of the energy of Air Conditioning. Whole House Fan units use as little as 47 watts per hour. (Less than a 60 watt light bulb!)
Factors to Consider if a Whole House Fan is Right for You.
- It is important to ensure there is adequate attic ventilation to allow the attic air to exhaust from the home.
- Avoid running your fan while using the A/C, as it will pull cool air out of your home.
- Whole House Fans are not designed to create wind-chill by blowing air on skin. Instead, by removing hot air they allow natural breezes to enter the home. This cooler air also makes ceiling fans and oscillating fans work more effectively.
- On days of high humidity and heat (typically 88 degrees and higher) the Whole House Fan may not be able to cool the home to a comfortable temperature. An Air Conditioner may be a preferable cooling option on days of high heat and humidity. Note: On days of high heat/humidity when no A/C is available running the Whole House Fan is still usually more comfortable than turning it off.
