What is the difference between a whole house fan vs an attic fan?
Attic fans help prevent the transfer of heat from a hot attic to the living space below. An attic fan is installed in the attic and blows hot air from the attic out through a roof-level vent. Use a fan in the attic to reduce the temperature in the attic by up to 50 degrees and reduce the temperature by as much as 10 degrees in the living space below the attic.
A whole house fan is installed in the ceiling, usually in a central location. The fan draws in cooler evening air through open windows and pulls warm air from the living space of the home. Then the fan blows the hot, stale air into the attic where it is vented. Whole house fans can provide up to 30 air changes per hour depending on the home’s floor plan, the climate, and fan size. This results in enough air to cool a home in approximately one hour. Shut off the fan is shut off and close the windows to preserve the cooler air once the sun rises and outdoor temperatures increase.
