Whole House Attic Fans 

Have you ever felt that your air conditioning bills are sky-high, yet your home still doesn't feel cool enough? Many homeowners struggle with keeping their houses comfortable without breaking the bank. At Service Hero, we offer a wide variety of quality solutions that can get your energy costs under control, including whole house attic fan installation. Read more to find out what a whole house attic fan is, its benefits, and tips for maintaining it.

What is a Whole House Attic Fan, and How Does It Work?

A whole house attic fan is a powerful ventilation system installed in the attic of a home. Unlike traditional air conditioning units that cool the air inside your home, an attic fan works by expelling hot air from your house and pulling in cooler air from outside. Here's how it operates:

  • Installation: The fan is mounted in the ceiling of the top floor, usually the attic. 
  • Operation: When switched on, it creates air movement by pulling cooler outside air through open windows and exhausting hot, stale air through attic vents.
  • Ventilation: This process effectively reduces the indoor temperature, providing a cooling effect without the need for refrigerated air.

Benefits of a Whole House Attic Fan

Installing a whole house attic fan has a lot of advantages that make it an attractive option for homeowners who want to improve their property’s comfort and efficiency.

What Our Customers Say

Amy Grant

It was so easy to schedule this appointment online and the service happened quickly. I sent my online request on Friday night and Henry was at my door first thing Saturday morning. Henry was courteous, polite, and friendly and explained what needed to be done. The first repair made didn’t 100% solve our toilet issue, so he made sure to recheck everything and ended up replacing a part that he needed to go out and get. Henry was respectful of my time and my home and I appreciate that. Will definitely use this company again!

  • Energy Efficiency: Whole house attic fans use a lot less energy than traditional air conditioning units. By relying on the natural cooling effect of outdoor air, these fans can lower indoor temperatures without the high energy costs associated with running an air conditioner.
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality: Attic fans help circulate fresh air throughout the house, which can improve indoor air quality. This constant movement of air can reduce the concentration of indoor pollutants, allergens, and moisture, creating a healthier living environment.
  • Cost Savings: Lower energy consumption translates to reduced utility bills. Property owners can save a considerable amount of money on their energy bills during the warmer months by using an attic fan as their primary cooling method or in conjunction with their air conditioning system.
  • Eco-Friendly Option: Since whole house attic fans use less electricity, they are a greener alternative to traditional air conditioning. 

Comparing Whole House Attic Fans to Traditional Air Conditioning

While both whole house attic fans and traditional air conditioning systems aim to keep your home cool, they operate differently and have distinct advantages and disadvantages.

  • Cost of Operation: Whole house attic fans are cheaper to operate than air conditioning systems because they use less electricity.
  • Cooling Efficiency: Attic fans are most effective during cooler parts of the day, such as early morning or late evening, when outside temperatures are lower. Traditional air conditioners, on the other hand, can provide consistent cooling regardless of the time of day or the outside temperature.
  • Installation and Maintenance: Installing a whole house attic fan is typically less expensive and less invasive than installing a central air conditioning system. Maintenance for attic fans is also generally simpler and less costly compared to maintaining an air conditioner.
  • Environmental Impact: As mentioned earlier, whole house attic fans have a lower environmental impact due to their reduced energy consumption. Air conditioners, while effective, are more energy-intensive and contribute more to greenhouse gas emissions.

Maintenance Tips for Your Attic Fan

To ensure your whole house attic fan lasts for many years, regular maintenance is essential. Here are some tips to keep your fan in top condition:

  • Regular Cleaning: Debris can accumulate on the fan blades and motor, reducing its efficiency, so clean these components regularly to ensure smooth operation.
  • Check for Wear and Tear: Inspect the fan for any signs of wear and tear, such as frayed wires or loose connections. 
  • Lubricate Moving Parts: If your fan has moving parts that require lubrication, make sure to apply the appropriate amount of lubricant as suggested by the manufacturer.
  • Inspect Ventilation: Ensure that the attic vents are clear of obstructions and in good condition. Proper ventilation is crucial for the fan to work effectively.
  • Seasonal Maintenance: Before the cooling season begins, perform a thorough inspection and maintenance routine.
