Why a whole house fan?

  • Efficient refreshment of the entire home in minutes
  • Quickly cools in hot summer months
  • Eliminates stale air in the winter months
  • Improves air quality and removes odors
  • Creates a healthier home environment
  • Extremely quiet fan avoids household disruption
  • Helps reduce air conditioning costs

Comfort comes full circle.

Solatube Whole House Fans will pull the cool, fresh outside air into your living spaces through your windows, and push hot, stale indoor air through your attic and out the vents. So you don’t just recirculate air in your home (as with air conditioning). You replace it with fresh air in your home and attic. Over and over.

Cooler and fresher. All day. All summer.

During the warmer months, using the Solatube Whole House Fan not only cools the air in your house, but also the structure and contents. This helps cool the home and attic by up to 30 degrees, and sometimes more, allowing them to stay much cooler the following day (the principle of Thermal Mass Cooling). So overall costs to keep the home cool are dramatically reduced, especially as compared to air conditioning.

Cleaner and healthier. In minutes. All winter.

During the colder months, the air you seal in your home tends to get stale and full of impurities and odors. (Sorry, it’s true.) Solatube’s Whole House Fan can quickly move that dirty air out of your house and replace it with clean, fresh air. (So quickly that it won’t even make your house cold.) So you and your family stay healthier and feel better throughout the season.
