How Whole House Fans Work
When you have a whole house fan installed by a professional HVAC company, it works by bringing fresh air in from the outside. While it does not make the air cold like your air conditioner, it does help to remove some of the heat before blowing it into your home. The idea is that a whole house fan aids in making your home feel cooler while also circulating fresh air in so that your home’s air doesn’t feel stale.
If you’ve ever climbed up into your attic in the middle of summer, you know that it can feel intensely hot and humid since it is not typically a climate-controlled area of your home. A whole house fan exhausts air into the attic, which helps with ventilation and also improves cooling in the climate-controlled zones of your house.
The primary goal of a whole house fan is to improve indoor air quality. A whole house fan constantly cycles new air into your home while cycling out stale air. This can help to eliminate bad odors and also get rid of microscopic particles like viruses and bacteria that are in your air.
You may not even realize that the air inside your home gets stale, but once you feel the difference that a whole house fan can make, you will understand. It’s basically like opening all of your windows and doors to let in the fresh air, but without having to worry about conditioned air escaping or bugs and pests getting in.
A whole house fan does not cool the air in place of your air conditioner. But it is a great complement to your air conditioning unit. A whole house fan can make your home feel cooler, so you can set your thermostat a few degrees higher and save on energy costs. The addition of a whole house fan is also a sound investment in your home’s resale value.
This is also a great way to lighten the load on your AC unit so it does not take on as much wear and tear. Investing in a whole house fan can save you on your monthly energy bills and extend the life of your air conditioner so that you don’t have to replace it as soon.
