Whole House Fans for Auburn, Grass Valley and Nevada City…
You may want to make your air conditioning system more energy-efficient, but the cost of installing an entirely new system can often be just too expensive. If this is the case, you should be looking at auxiliary installations that can work in conjunction with your current system, improving performance without the expense of a total replace project. Whole house fans are one of the best supplemental systems available. And if you live in the wonderful Nevada County area you have the benefit of warm days with cool nights.
How Whole House Fans Work:
A whole house fan works by quickly pulling in large amounts of fresh cool air from outside and circulating it through the house. Meanwhile, the hot air gets pushed out the attic in minutes. If the temperature outside drops from 85-degrees to 75-degrees in two hours, for example, the air in the house will take about four hours to drop that much.
Whole house fans can do the job in less than half that time. Since it pushes air out the attic, it also cools the attic and reduces heat gain in the house. So by turning on your fan in the cool morning hours, you can bring in comfortable air, then close up the house and avoid the searing heat of summer. Turning it on again in the evening ensures all day comfort on all but the very hottest days.
Advantages of Whole House Fans
In Nevada and Placer County, whole house fans can eliminate the need for central air conditioning altogether. This can allow you to focus on installing a more efficient heating system for your home. Even if you need something more than whole house fans during the summer, the fans will greatly reduce the cost of running your current air conditioning systems.
