WHOLE HOUSE FANS
Whole House Fan Installation In Greenwich, Darien, Stamford, and Norwalk CT
While summers here in Connecticut can sometimes get hot, for the most part, the weather stays reasonable compared to other areas of the country. For many homeowners that find themselves trying to decide whether to install air conditioning in their homes, those relatively mild temperatures mean that an attractive alternative could be to install a whole house fan.
When it comes to whole house fan installation in Riverside and the surrounding areas, Safe and Sound Electric has the training and the experience you need to get your fan installed quickly and correctly. Our technicians are highly trained, and with their experience in working with Connecticut homes, they are well-equipped to tackle any challenge they might encounter.
What Is a Whole House Fan?
In most homes with existing HVAC systems, the heating and cooling systems share ductwork that distributes air throughout the home. The way that these systems function, much of the air running through those ducts is recycled, having been heated or cooled again and again. While this helps systems to run more efficiently, it can also make the air stale and decrease your indoor air quality.
A whole house fan, on the other hand, is installed in a centralized location in your home. It draws fresh air in through the windows of your home, venting the existing air out through your attic. This air flow allows you to take advantage of cooler outdoor air while aiding in evaporation, which helps to cool your home even more.
Whole House Fan Installation Process
When you call Safe and Sound Electric to install your whole house fan, you can rest assured you will receive the highest levels of workmanship, as well as unbeatable customer service. Our goal is to make sure that you are satisfied with the work you receive, and will not consider our job to be done until you are happy.
While whole house fan installation may seem relatively simple at first, the process is actually more complicated than you might expect. When you trust the job to the technicians at Safe and Sound Electric, we will make sure that your fan is installed correctly, ensuring that it runs quietly and that your home has sufficient ventilation.
Your electrical contractors will be able to quickly prepare your ceiling and install your fan, including putting in all of the proper wiring. They will also make sure your attic has enough ventilation to allow circulating air to escape. This helps to prevent pressure from building inside your home, which can cause backdrafts from your gas-fired appliances, including water heaters and furnaces.
Advantages to Having a Whole House Fan
If you are thinking about contacting Safe and Sound Electric about a whole house fan installation, these benefits should help to convince you to make the call:
Whole house fans work by drawing the warm air inside your home into your attic, where it can escape through the vents that help regulate your home’s temperature. Fresh, cooler air is then drawn into your home to fill the space left by that hot air, which immediately helps to cool your home.
Air conditioning, on the other hand, must cool all of the warm air in your home before you notice a difference. Even if you’re relying on your AC system to cool your home, a whole-house fan can make the process much more efficient.
Lower Operating Costs
There are a number of ways that you end up saving money with a whole house fan. Not only is it cheaper to install than an AC system, especially if your home doesn’t have existing ductwork, but it also costs far less to run a whole-home fan. You will only have to run your fan intermittently, and it will be so efficient at cooling your home, saving even more (up to 90% compared to running an air conditioner).
Improved Indoor Air Quality
With a traditional cooling or heating system, your indoor air quality could be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outdoors. Dust, dirt, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, and other particulates can build up in recirculated air, dramatically reducing your indoor air quality.
With a whole house fan, you will be constantly refreshing the air in your home, venting many of those pollutants out of your home and replacing the air with clean, fresh outdoor air. Even in the winter, you can run your whole house fan to keep the air quality in your home as clean as possible.
Many fans, like window units and box fans, create a lot of noise. It can be hard to hear anything else. When a whole house fan is properly installed, it will be hard to hear the device at all.
