3 Types of Attic Fans
Smart Attic Fans
ROOF AND GABLE APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE
Smart attic fans are the newest revolution in the attic fan industry.
A smart attic fan features a built-in thermostat and/or humidistat that directly controls the motor speed based on the conditions in the attic. By self-adjusting to the attic conditions, the fan is able to maintain an optimum year-round attic climate while minimizing energy consumption.
In the summer months, a smart attic fan will prevent the attic from reaching scorching hot temperatures that, in turn, transfer into the living space below.
These smart fans typically feature a smartphone app that offers the ability to control all parameters of the fan from temperature settings, humidity settings, and it even allows you to see the current conditions in the attic.
Studies have even shown that a smart attic fan can keep your attic within 10 degrees of the outside temperature, even during the peak heat of the day.
Solar Attic Fans
ROOF AND GABLE APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE
Solar Attic Fans are ideal for any homeowner who wants attic cooling but does not want to use any more electricity. This helps the homeowner save the maximum dollar amount on their electricity bill every month.
These fans operate solely by using solar power to push air from the attic vents, throughout the attic space, and back outside. Some solar attic fans come with an AC/DC Inverter, which allows you to run your fan throughout the day and night by switching from solar power to electricity automatically.
If you only want to use solar power, you can choose to have the inverter disconnected on install. Solar attic fans are ideal for any homeowner looking to keep the world green and their home cool and healthier.
Solar Attic Fans
GABLE APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE
Traditional Attic Fans are what most homeowners have in their homes when it comes to attic fans. These fans push a lot of air, are powerful, and reliable. These fans often come with a thermostat and are single speed only typically that can be set to when you want your the fan to run and can push air at up to 2,000 CFM. These attic fans are typically less expensive and perfect for anyone who wants a cheap alternative to their high A/C costs.
How it Works
Anytime it is cooler outside than the inside of a home, the QuietCool whole house fan system will work effectively. In the summer, this normally happens in the late afternoon to early evening and through to the next morning.
When whole-house fans are turned on, the fans will pull the cooler outdoor air into your home, through your windows, across your living space, into the attic, and out the attic vents, replacing the hot, stale air. This helps cool the home and attic by up to 30 degrees Fahrenheit or more.
When using a QuietCool whole house fan, we recommend starting by cooling the area which will be most occupied. For example, in most family situations, the early evening is spent in the kitchen and family room area. Assuming this is the case, it is where you would want to start cooling. As it gets later in the evening, and even cooler outside, we recommend opening more windows in other rooms of your home. Then, when it is time to sleep, close all the windows in the home except those in the bedrooms that are occupied. This will provide each room with a cool breeze as long as needed. Remember when using a QuietCool system to be sure not to open too many windows or open any single window too wide. 3-6’’ and just a few windows will suffice to make your home a fresh-aired paradise.
The cool breeze begins when a window or two is opened and the QuietCool fan is turned on. The cooler outside air will immediately begin to create a breeze inside the home making the homeowner feel up to 10 degrees cooler, and sometimes more, instantly.
This breeze will be carried through your home to each QuietCool whole house fan that is on and in use; thus beginning the cooling process. At the same time, the cooler outdoor air will be brought into the attic and pushed through the attic vents causing the hot stale air in the attic to be exhausted. Exhausting the hot air inside your attic will allow your home to stay cooler throughout the day.
As it gets later in the evening, and even cooler outside, we recommend opening more windows in other rooms of your home. Then at bedtime, close all the windows in the home except those in the bedrooms that are occupied. This will provide each room with a cool breeze as long as needed. If a QuietCool is installed in each bedroom as we recommended, the homeowner can enjoy the breeze and your privacy with your door closed.
Note: When using the QuietCool system, be sure to not open too many windows or open any windows too wide, as this will lessen the cooling breeze that is felt. There is a “sweet spot” when window opening(s) throughout the home is “just right” to cause a nice active breeze to be felt at each open window.

Indoor Air Quality

Give Your Home The Breath of Fresh Air That it Needs
QuietCool Whole House Fans were designed to bring fresh, clean air from outside into your home, replacing the air in your existing home in just minutes. In a time where people are spending more time indoors, it is critical to remove poor indoor air quality that can plague your home.
QuietCool Whole House Fans Help Remove:
- Airborne Pathogens
- VOC Gases
- Stale Air
A Breathing Home is a Healthy Home
Poor air quality has become an epidemic across the country. Every home is plagued with airborne illness, VOC gases, stale air, harmful pathogens, viruses, and more. These airborne annoyances can stay clogged inside of a home for months, polluting, and spreading illness throughout your family. Too many people have accepted this as normal when there is a simple solution to this problem.
QuietCool Whole House Fans are just that solution. These incredibly efficient and whisper-quiet fans can help alleviate these issues at the simple press of a button. When turned on, they pull large amounts of air from opened windows, throughout the home, up into the attic, and finally out the attic vents. This process of thermal mass cooling allows your home to completely replace the air in 3-4 minutes.
In fact, using just your A/C and keeping your windows shut could drastically increase the chances of spreading illness throughout your family and home. QuietCool Whole House Fans were designed specifically to pull clean, cool air from outside into your home so you no longer have to simply recondition the same pre-existing air over and over again.
These benefits directly impact indoor air quality and improve ventilation which all experts agree is crucial in a time when indoor air quality is progressively getting worse.
QuietCool’s Benefits Are Backed By Experts
As the recent COVID-19 outbreak has sent even more people indoors, the CDC has specifically recommended four things you can do at home to combat this virus.
- Clean hands at the door and at regular intervals
- Create habits and reminders to avoid touching your face and cover coughs and sneezes
- Disinfect surfaces like doorknobs, tables, and handrails regularly
- Increase ventilation by opening windows or adjusting the air conditioning.
According to the EPA, Indoor air quality is worsening as people are now spending more time indoors.
- Americans, on average, spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors,1 where the concentrations of some pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations
- People who are often most susceptible to the adverse effects of pollution (e.g., the very young, older adults, people with cardiovascular or respiratory disease) tend to spend even more time indoors.
- Indoor concentrations of some pollutants have increased in recent decades due to such factors as energy-efficient building construction (when it lacks sufficient mechanical ventilation to ensure adequate air exchange) and increased use of synthetic building materials, furnishings, personal care products, pesticides, and household cleaners.
Harvard University has found that ventilation is a crucial part of how viruses and bacteria spread within indoor environments. Recirculating air in buildings such as your home can lead to a higher risk of infection during outbreaks. Even minimum ventilation can cut influenza transmission as much as having 50 to 60 percent of the people in the building vaccinated.
According to the ALA, effective ventilation may also help keep bacteria, viruses and other pollutants out of the indoor air. Research shows that airflow and ventilation can alter how diseases spread indoors. The more stagnant the air is, the more likely diseases are to spread. Like the lungs, homes need to be able to breathe to make sure that fresh air comes in and dirty air goes out. Indoor air can build up high levels of moisture, odors, gases, dust, and other air pollutants. To keep the air safe indoors, fresh outdoor air is needed to dilute these indoor pollutants.
The next level is engineering controls – separating the workers from the hazard. This is achieved in hospitals with a high ventilation rate that removes the air from a room where a virus may be found. Some companies are installing extra barriers between workers and consumers. In homes, individuals may choose to run filtered home HVAC systems or open windows to bring in fresh air regularly. You might also choose to run an air purifier.
