Are you still over-relying on air-conditioning to cool your home and facing high energy bills each month as a consequence? Then, it’s time to look into using an energy-saving fan.

At Whole House Fan, we advocate for the use of fans that are energy efficient and effective at cooling homes—including parts that are prone to excessive heat. We carry the best selection of whole-house fans.

If you want a better way to cool your home, energy-saving whole-house fans can be the cost-effective option, especially in the summer months. We carry fans from trusted brands like Quiet Cool to ensure a green solution that won’t significantly raise your energy bills. Quiet Cool’s whole house fans are not at all like older, noisier, and less efficient models. They are powered by energy-efficient motors that make them top-rated by the California Energy Commission.

Are you new to energy-saving fans? This blog has everything you must know about them and why they are the best cost-effective and efficient cooling option.

How do energy-saving fans work?

A whole house fan functions as a large exhaust system that removes hot air from a building or house. This type of energy-saving fan operates by drawing hot air into the attic, where the built-up positive pressure then expels the air through gables or vents. Simultaneously, it creates negative pressure in the living spaces, pulling in cooler air from outside through the windows.

This process effectively cools living areas and makes temperatures more bearable, even during summer. Due to this mechanism, whole-house fans provide a thorough and reliable method for cooling an entire home. For optimal performance, these fans should be installed at the highest ceiling point, typically in the attic.

A practical and economical cooling solution 

Whole house fans excel at lowering indoor temperatures by effectively expelling hot air, and they stand out as a more budget-friendly option compared to air conditioning. These fans are energy efficient and environmentally conscious, ensuring quieter operation to avoid household disturbances. Additionally, they are designed to operate without causing noise issues for neighbors.

The advantage of energy-saving fans lies in their ability to cool living spaces at a much lower cost than air conditioning. They offer a natural, chemical-free method to achieve ideal coolness in attics, workspaces, and living areas. In fact, you can potentially reduce your energy consumption by 50-90% by using these fans.

Whisper-quiet operation

If you have ever used traditional attic fans or ceiling-mounted fans, then you know how noisy they can be. Our whole house fans are quiet workhorses that push hot air out of your property while bringing natural, fresh air in without disruptive noise or vibration. QuietCool whole house fans feature a unique, patented design with an acoustical duct linked to an R5 damper box, so they run quietly with almost no noise vibration. That means you can relax in a cooler, comfortable environment where you can sleep, read, watch TV, or converse without disruptions.

Suitable for every home or budget

We offer a diverse range of whole-house fans in various sizes and models, ensuring that every homeowner can find an energy-saving fan suitable for their specific needs and budget. With just one appropriately sized, powerful unit, you can effectively cool multiple rooms in your home. You don’t have to purchase multiple fans.

For those mindful of budget, our smaller models are an excellent choice, providing reliable and zoned cooling in key areas like bedrooms and living rooms. Moreover, even homes without an attic can benefit from these fans. They can be installed on the roof or in other strategic locations to provide a cost-effective and natural cooling solution.

A green cooling system

Whole house fans can be energy-efficient alternatives to air conditioning, especially the QuietCool Energy Saver series. How much energy can they save? QuietCool’s fans use as little power as a fluorescent bulb. This means you can lower your energy bill while enjoying cooler indoor spaces.

Easy to install

Most of the whole-house fans we sell are pre-assembled and ready to install. They fit together in a few minutes and don’t require complex wiring or carpentry. That means installing them can be a weekend DIY project. Otherwise, we recommend hiring experienced contractors for a seamless and error-free installation.

Backed by warranties

All QuietCool fans come with the manufacturer’s 10-year warranty. If you buy from us, your purchase is backed by our fuss-free money-back guarantee for your peace of mind.

How to use a whole house fan

When using a whole house fan, always keep the windows open to ensure effective operation. The best time to use an energy-saving fan is in the early morning or evening when outdoor air is fresher and cooler. That way, cool air can be drawn into your home.

If you live in an area with a mild and temperate climate, whole-house fans can eliminate the need to keep using your air conditioner to cool your home. Operating a whole-house fan is significantly cheaper than running a central air-conditioning system. According to home improvement experts, these fans can operate at one-tenth an air conditioner’s operating cost. That could mean up to 80% savings on your energy costs.

Getting the right size

Whole house fans are more energy efficient when sized correctly for your home. Ideally, the fan size should suit the space of your living area. Standard sizes are around 24 to 36 inches in diameter, but if you’re unsure about sizing, don’t hesitate to consult us!
