WHF's Naturally Cool Your Home

Instantly cool your home up to 10 degrees in just minutes with a QuietCool Whole House Fan.

This is what makes AC work so hard, turning on then off over and over again costing considerable amounts of money and energy. Unlike ceiling mounted fans, the QuietCool Whole House Fans we install are a cooling powerhouse quickly pushing hot air out of your home while drawing fresh, natural air in without any vibration or noise.

WHF's Improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

Installing a WHF will greatly improve your Indoor Air Quality creating a cleaner and healthier environment for you and your entire family, including the furry ones.

Creating a well-ventilated home with a WHF also helps to limit the build-up of moisture which contributes to unhealthy mold growth. These conditions, which are often under the radar when it comes to our health, contribute to what is known as Sick Building Syndrome. SBS is a condition in which people in a building suffer from symptoms of illness such as acute discomfort, headaches, eye/nose/throat irritation, dry cough, dry or itchy skin, dizziness, nausea, difficulty concentrating, and chronic fatigue. With COVID-19 part of our current landscape WHF’s prove to be a valuable tool to eliminate that indoor threat and stop the use of manufactured AC air which can trap or recirculate the virus aerosol particles.

Bay area whole house fans provides products that keep the air you breathe fresh and free of pollutants / pathogens through effective ventilation.  The following benefits of whole house fans are substantiated by organizations such as the CDC, the United States environmental protection agency, the American lung association, and Harvard school of public health.

Keeping The Home Safe

Increase ventilation by opening windows to keep your home safe.

Indoor Air Vs Outdoor Air

Americans, on average, spend approximately 90% of their time indoors, where the concentration of some pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations.

Ventilation on Virus & Bacteria

Effective ventilation may also help keep bacteria, viruses & other pollutants out of the indoor air. The more stagnant the air is, the more likely diseases are to spread.

Ventilation Vs Recirculating Air

Ventilation is a critical factor in how viruses and bacteria spread within indoor environments, and studies have shown that recirculating air in buildings can lead to higher risk of infection during outbreaks.
