Benefits of Whole House Fans for Your HVAC System


Cooling doesn’t have to be so black and white. Sure, you can just flip on an AC and hope that it does the trick, but your home is complex and has its peccadillos. Whole house fans help in ways that other cooling systems can’t.

A whole house fan isn’t going to replace any system, but it can help alleviate some of the strain on your HVAC unit. Whole house fans in Rancho Cordova, CA are more beneficial than many homeowners think, from operating costs to cooling efficiency and more. Let’s talk about how a whole house fan could fit into your home and what it can do for your comfort.

Quick Results

While a whole house fan won’t cool everything as much as your air conditioner will, it works the second you turn it on. You don’t have to wait for air intake and forced air travel through ductwork: it simply begins working when you turn it on.

Quiet Operation

Every fan is different and depending on the speed you choose, a whole house fan can be about half the volume of a standard conversation between two people.

You won’t have to worry about waking someone up or disturbing your own peace which can happen with standalone fans and boxy window fans.

Less Wear and Tear on Your Air Conditioner

With a whole house fan running, you can cool your home by well over ten degrees. That reduces the need to turn your air conditioner on as often.

Your AC adds wear and tear when it operates. Over time, enough use will cause degradation that leads to repairs and a potentially shorter lifespan than the manufacturer expected. Fans help reduce the total amount of time you need to run your air conditioner.

Better Air Circulation

Ever notice how sometimes air gets “stale”? It’s an odd term to describe it, but you know exactly what we’re talking about. You need air changes in your home, and many homes sorely lack that unless they have a whole house fan.

On average, whole house fans can provide up to 60 air changes per hour. This keeps air circulating in your home and helps alleviate bad odors at the same time.

Doesn’t Cost Much to Operate

Compared to an air conditioner, you aren’t spending much to run a whole house fan (especially for the temperature change that it can offer).

While it can’t send the temperatures plummeting like an air conditioner can, it can take the edge off of the temperature in your home so you aren’t spending more money to run the AC when you don’t really need to.

Are You a Fan Yet?

Does the idea of a whole house fan sound like the right move for you and your family? If so, there’s no time like the present. Don’t let hesitation get in the way of you and a smart, energy-efficient way to cool your home. Let’s get it set up as soon as possible.
