whole-house-fanLooking for a less expensive alternative to air conditioning? Consider installing a whole-house fan. A whole-house fan costs a small fraction of the price of air conditioning, and uses approximately one-tenth as much power as AC.

A whole-house fan is a less expensive alternative to air conditioning

A whole-house fan works by drawing cooler outside air in through open doors and windows. The fan pushes hot air out through attic vents, creating a pleasant breeze through your home. Whole house fans are most commonly mounted in an upstairs stairwell or hallway ceiling, with at least 3 feet of clearance above the fan. The fans can also be installed in bedrooms for extra cool air support.

A good system for using a whole-house fan is to run it in the early morning and late evening when the outside air is cooler. During the hotter daytime hours it is typically beneficial to close door and windows and shut blind, curtains and shades to keep the hot sun from warming your interiors.

IncePector Handyman would recommend installing a fan manufactured by Quiet Cool Systems.
