Thermal Mass Cooling
Our whole house fans create an active breeze in the home which helps the thermal mass cooling of your space. Here’s how:
Leaving the whole house fan on during the evenings and overnight will cool the walls, ceilings, attic, roof, furniture, and flooring. When heat is pulled out of these areas, the home becomes truly cooled down. This process is called thermal mass cooling. In return, your home will not heat up as fast the next day, and it will stay much cooler for longer. This also means that your A/C doesn’t have to work as hard, resulting in less energy spend.
Remove Air Contaminants
No matter what the season, airing out your home is important to maintain a healthy environment. The contents of indoor air include gases released from flooring, paint, furniture, and building materials. This also includes germs, pathogens, particles, biological waste, and water vapor, which are potential health hazards. It is recommended you air out your home three to four times a day to have a healthy living environment. Our quiet whole house fan can exchange the air in your home in about 3-5 minutes giving you a healthy home to live in.
From the Environmental Protection Agency
Ensuring proper ventilation with outside air can help reduce indoor airborne contaminants, including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, and other viruses. Using a whole house fan in your home should be part of a plan to protect your family from airborne pathogens. EPA Source
How a Whole House Fan Works
When it is cooler outside, the whole house fan pulls cool air in from the outdoors and pushes the hot air into the attic and out the vents. Immediately you’ll feel a breeze throughout your home; creating a cooler, more comfortable space. A whole house fan is a primary natural cooling device that can significantly reduce or even eliminate the need for ‘manufactured’ cool air.

When do you use a whole house fan?
Normally you use the whole house fan in the mornings and later afternoon/evenings. You want to run our system when it is cooler outside. You can also use our system to remove germs and odors quickly.
How Long Will It Take For My Home To Cool Down?
The Solatube Whole House Fans start cooling as soon as you turn on the unit. Typically takes around ten to fifteen minutes, with 20 – 25 complete air exchanges per hour.
Can you use a whole house fan during the day?
Yes, but the key to fast cooling is it has to be cooler outside.
Cool Way To Save
Solatube Whole House Fans are incredibly powerful, quiet, and energy efficient. These powerful fans offer your home the cooling ability at just a fraction of the watt usage of an air conditioner.
Return On Investment
Have you looked at the price of an air conditioner lately? Whole house fans are literally an investment that pays for itself in almost a year. The cost of running your whole house fan is also far less expensive compared to running an air conditioning unit. This brings us to our next section…
Save Big on Cooling Costs
Save on your cooling costs, as much as 90%! A whole house fan uses 200-600 watts while an air conditioner uses 2,000-6,000 watts. That is a mind-blowing difference. Using a whole house fan can result in savings of over $350 each month. Larger homes that need larger A/C units can save even more.
