Product Overview

  • Reduces the need to run the air conditioner
  • Low operating costs
  • Removes stale indoor air
Whole-House Fans are ideal in climates where it's not necessary to run the air conditioner regularly to cool the living space; or if you want to use the air conditioner less frequently. The fans install in the attic above a central hallway. Open up the windows inside the house, turn on the fan and it pulls in cooler outdoor air to replace the warm indoor air, dumping it into the attic. The attic exhaust vents and intake vents become "exhaust outlets" for the air the fan dumps into the attic while the unit is running.
  • 2-speed operation, with a convenient pull-chain switch
  • Heavy-steel housing with a powder-coated finish makes them extremely durable
  • Shipped in an assembled wood frame to simplify installation
  • Can be mounted without cutting an attic joist
  • 4,500 CFM (cubic feet of airflow per minute)
  • Direct-drive motor
  • 24 in. fan for up to 1,500 sq. ft. of living space
  • Automatic shuttler included
  • Removes built up heat from inside the house
  • Ideal for early-morning and late-evening hours to bring in cooler, outdoor air
  • Helps offset the cost of air conditioning
  • Requires 6.0 sq. ft. of combined attic exhaust and intake vents (864 sq. in.)

It is a little loud but worth the noise when the whole house cools faster than an air conditioner would. I know this will also save me money. Cant wait for the savings to start.
