How an airscape whole house fan works.

How They Work

Depending on the region and time of year, in many climates a WHF may be all that’s needed to cool the entire home.

A WHF pulls fresh air from open windows. It exhausts the warm air out of the attic vents. While elements like floor plans, square footage of the house and climate have to be considered, on average,WHFs offer between 30 to 60 air changes per hour. You will have the option of choosing air flow change rates.
