Whole home ventilation fans come in four types
The direct drive fan has blades which are attached to the motor shaft.
A belt driven system comes with a separate blade assembly. It uses a belt and pulley to circulate air.
Ducted systems with detached motors
Ducted systems with detached motors and insulated Doors
Only a expert whf installer will see that there is proper ventilation. Otherwise, the system could create a backdraft that can affect water heaters, furnaces and gas dryers. This can lead to hazardous conditions, such as putting carbon monoxide into the environment. This is not something you want for your family. But the only way to make sure it doesn’t happen is by having a professional install, maintain and repair your whole home ventilation fan.
How A Whole Home Fan Works
A whole house fan can cool your home, depending on the region and time of year. It does this by pulling in fresh air from outside and pushing out hot, stale air through the attic.
It is a good alternative to air conditioning in arid or mild environments. When it is turned on, the fan pulls in cool air through open windows and vents. It then circulates fresh air throughout the whole house.
Whole house fans use less energy than air conditioners. They ventilate your home, improving indoor air quality, especially in stuffy parts of the house. Proper installation and usage of a whole house fan can significantly impact your home’s comfort and energy efficiency.
