The Solatube Engineered Performance Series (EPS) Whole House Fans are a marvel of engineering, with every component expertly designed for high performance. At its core is a 7-speed electronically commutated brushless motor designed to be ultra-powerful yet energy-efficient. It powers innovative jet blade designs that are precision cut to maximize CFM and minimize noise and vibration. R6 damper doors prevent unwanted air infiltration when the fan is not used. The transition damper box ensures a smooth and efficient airflow, keeping homes cooler and healthier year-round.

Whole house fan with air blast

Unbelievable power.
Unreal savings.

Solatube Engineered Performance Series Whole House Fans powerfully and efficiently pull air from open windows and exhaust it through the attic and roof. They’re engineered to cool your home in minutes and are a fraction of the cost of running your A/C. Additionally, our energy-efficient fans provide exceptional ventilation against unwanted dust and pathogens, making it one of the best investments for your home, your family, and yourself.

How it works

The Solatube EPS Whole House Fans will pull the cool, fresh outside air into your living spaces through your windows, and push hot, stale indoor air through your attic and out the vents. The air in your main living spaces and attic doesn’t just recirculate (as with air conditioning), it gets replaced with fresh, new air. This helps cool the home and attic by up to 30 degrees, and sometimes more, allowing them to stay much cooler the following day (the principle of Thermal Mass Cooling).

The Engineered Performance Series Fans are the perfect mix of power and grace. But more power doesn’t mean more noise. The precision crafted fan blades maximize CFM and minimize noise and vibration.

Cool comfort and a healthier home at the touch of a button.

Shield yourself from airborne pathogens.

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 a part of a plan to protect your family from airborne pathogens.

Thermal Mass Cooling

Engineered Performance Series 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.

WHF Summer Airflow

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 enviornment. Our quiet system can exchange the air in your home in about 3-5 minutes giving you a healthy home to live in.

Whole House Fan Winter


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.
