You might remember the old whole house fans back from the 1950s. These giant fans were placed in the attic and the only method to cooling the home back then. They were loud, inefficient and ineffective at cooling. Today, technology works in our favor. Quietcool whole house fans are supremely efficient at cooling the home using only a fraction of the energy a traditional air conditioner uses.
Why are homeowners today more interested in whole house fans than before? In times of the year when energy is in high demand, the bill can be absolutely enormous. People need and want an alternative to cooling their homes with traditional air conditioners. That’s why whole house fans deliver for the majority of homes. Their simple construction works to remove heat and pull cool air into the home for efficient, low-energy cooling.
What should you know about Quietcool whole house fans?
If you want a new and efficient method to cooling your home, consider whole house fans.
What is a whole house fan and how does it work? A whole house fan is a large fan installed in the attic. It pulls cool air into the house from outside while pushing hot air out of the home. To do this, one end of the Quietcool whole house fan is connected to the register of a large area of the home. This might be the living room or kitchen. The other end of the whole house fan is attached to the attic vent leading to an external location.
When we turn the Quietcool whole house fan on, it creates a vacuum, pulling in cool air from open windows and doors and pushing hot air up and out through the attic.
How is Quietcool whole house fans different from other attic fans? Quietcool whole house fans are very quiet, elevating home comfort. In most cases, homeowners cannot even hear their Quietcool whole house fans working at all.
Ninety-eight percent of all whole house fan users are happy with their decision to install these fans. Better yet, 100 percent of whole house fan users save up to 90 percent off their AC bill every month.
The Quietcool whole house fan saves you a lot of money. Because Quietcool whole house fans use only 10 percent of the energy a traditional air conditioner uses, even using the fan part-time saves a chunk off the utility bill.
But how can it provide high quality cooling at such a low cost? Whenever you use traditional air conditioning, hot air inside the home is cooled. This requires time and great deal of energy use. This isn’t the case with Quietcool whole house fans. With Quietcool whole house fans, hot air is completely removed from the home and cool air is brought in. First, this drastically cuts down on the workload for any type of air conditioner. Second, the air brought in was naturally cooled, so all homeowners really pay for is the fan to bring the air into the home.
For lucky homeowners, using only the Quietcool whole house fans is enough to cool the home. For others, they still need to use the traditional air conditioner for optimal cooling. Even still, using the air conditioner after the whole house fan is highly effective at shaving energy costs. Because the mass of indoor heat has been removed, there is less work for the air conditioner to do. In fact, your air conditioner can get your home to your desired temperature much faster than without a Quietcool whole house fan.
How does the Quietcool whole house fan improve your home comfort? One unique advantage the whole house fan has over the air conditioner is its ability to ventilate the home.
Indoor home air is increasingly important to homeowners. People care about what is in their air and how it affects home health, personal hygiene and comfort. Low indoor air quality is linked to poor productivity and worsened asthma and allergy symptoms. Most importantly, we feel it in our air, disrupting peace of mind and comfort.
How dirty is our home air? The average home has indoor air between five and 100 times dirtier than outdoor air. This is because of the number of indoor pollutants contaminating our homes and lack of ventilation.
Fortunately, with whole house fan, mass amounts of air are removed from the home through the attic whenever the fan runs. This physically removes heat, germs and particles from inhalation and discomfort.
This is a huge win for homeowners. Improved indoor air quality not only elevates quality of life, safety and home comfort, but it also improves AC energy efficiency, longevity and health.
