A QuietCool whole house fan is a cooling system for your home that uses less energy than a traditional air conditioner and it is quieter, too.
This energy efficient system works by pulling cooler air from the outside of your home to the inside, creating natural cross breezes with open windows. Since it is normally cooler in the evenings, you would turn on your fan unit, open a few windows and the whole house ventilation fan will cool your entire home.
Because the hot air is vented through an exhaust system through the attic and outside using a whole house attic fan, your home stays cooler the next day as well. Your home will feel fresh and cool with a whole house ventilation fan.
How it Works
Anytime it is cooler outside than the inside of a home, the QuietCool whole house fan system will work effectively. In the summer, this normally happens in the late afternoon to early evening and through to the next morning.
When the QuietCool whole house fan is turned on, the fan will pull the cooler outdoor air into your home, through your windows, across your living space, into the attic, and out the attic vents replacing the hot stale air. This helps cool the home and attic by up to 30 degrees, allowing it to stay much cooler the following day.
When using the QuietCool whole house fan, we recommend starting by cooling the area in which will be most occupied. For example, in most family situations, the early evening is spent in the kitchen and family room area. Assuming this to be true, this is where you would want to start cooling.
The cool breeze begins when a window or two is opened and the QuietCool fan is turned on. The cooler outside air will immediately begin to create a breeze inside the home making the homeowner feel up to 10 degrees cooler, instantly.
This breeze will be carried through your home to each QuietCool whole house fan that is on and in use; thus beginning the cooling process. At the same time, the cooler outdoor air will be brought into the attic and pushed through the attic vents causing the hot stale air in the attic to be exhausted. Exhausting the hot air inside your attic will allow your home to stay cooler throughout the day.
As it gets later in the evening, and even cooler outside, we recommend opening more windows in other rooms of your home. Then at bedtime, close all the windows in the home except those in the bedrooms that are occupied. This will provide each room with a cool breeze as long as needed. If a QuietCool is installed in each bedroom as we recommended, the homeowner can enjoy the breeze and your privacy with your door closed.
Note: When using the QuietCool system, be sure to not open too many windows or open any windows too wide, as this will lessen the cooling breeze that is felt.
Where does QuietCool save the most money?
Since the number one benefit of QuietCool whole house fans is SAVING MONEY on A/C related electricity costs, it makes sense that the more you use your air conditioning, the more money you will spend on electricity. Accordingly, it makes just as much sense that if you can reduce your use of A/C, you will reduce your overall cost of electricity.
Turn OFF your A/C and turn ON the worlds most energy efficient whole house fan. The map to the right shows fairly accurate reductions in use of air conditioning when customers use QuietCool in different climates throughout the country.
