So, How Does a Whole-House Fan Cool a Home?
Let’s start with the basic concept of how a whole-house fan operates. A powerful fan sits at the end of flexible ducting in your attic that mounts to a centralized vent in your home’s ceiling. When the outside air is cooler than the air inside your home, you crack open some windows (or doors) and turn the whole-house fan on. It immediately pulls the hot air from your living space and pushes it up into your attic and out its venting while at the same time bringing cool air into your home through the windows. Within minutes, your entire house is cooled down with fresh outside air, rather than continually recirculating stale indoor air (as with air conditioning).

4 Benefits of Whole-Home Fan Installation
Low Operating Costs
During operation, a whole house fan costs about 10–25% of the money an air conditioner costs to run. It is far cheaper, and you can save hundreds of dollars on your electric bill every summer.
These fans work by drawing hot air from the house into the attic and then outside via ridge or gable vents. The empty space left by the hot air is filled with cool, fresh air from outside the house. Compared to a central air conditioner, a whole house fan works much faster, and you begin to feel the cooling effects in minutes. However, a whole house fan will obviously only work if the external air is cooler than the air indoors.
While many fans can be so loud that you can’t hear yourself think, whole-house fans provide a perfect alternative. They can barely be heard since they are located in the attic and suspended away from the floor. Plus, models with noise-dampening ducting and brushless fan motors are extra quiet. So, you can focus on the most important things without the background noise.
A Healthier Home
Nasty things get trapped when your house is closed up, especially during the winter months, such as bacteria, allergens, pet dander, odors, etc. Luckily, whole-house fans do more than cool your house. One of their most significant benefits is that they whisk away all the pollutants trapped in stagnant, stale indoor air and replace them with fresh outdoor air, dramatically improving your home’s air purity and health.
