Whole house fans have been proven to reduce cooling costs dramatically in summer months. In So. California we have a desert climate which experiences large temperature changes from day to night which makes it the perfect environment for a whole house fan. Once the sun sets and the cooler air is able to be drawn into your home you can simply flip a switch and shut off your central AC system. Temecula, Murrieta and Fallbrook are perfect locations to benefit from installing a whole house fan.
When a whole house fan is used correctly in Temecula, Murrieta and all sorounding areas the savings on cooling bills can easily be enough to offset the rising costs of energy. Installing a whole house fan is like buying your future energy rates for years to come at today’s energy prices.
Keep in mind that our whole house fans come with a 15 year warranty! So you don’t have to worry about it breaking down before paying for itself.
Typically a home owner will run their WHF for 4-8 hours through the day and into the evening during the summer months. For a 500-watt fan, this would equate to about $.60 - $1.20 per day! (Using energy rates at $.30 per kWh).
This equates to about $18-$36 per month. A whole house fan uses up-to 1/15th of the amount of energy an A/C unit uses.
We have seen whole house fans installed in the Murrieta area bring cooling bills down by 50%!
A Fallbrook home owner was able to completely eliminate their cooling bills except for the occasional week or two in August and July with their whole house fan.
Just in case you think this is only a sales pitch look what the power companies and authorities are saying about whole house fans:
- The U.S. Depart. of Energy says:
“Whole house cooling using a Whole House Fan can substitute for an air conditioner most of the year in most climates”
- So Cal Edison says:
“Whole House Fans are the number one energy-saving device available.”
- Pacific Gas & Electric Company says:
“The Whole House Fan is the single most effective tool to reduce your energy bill”
Whole house fans have one if not the quickest ROI (return on investment) of any energy saving product on the market.
QuietCool whole house fans with a PSC motor (Trident and Classic) have an ROI average of 2 ½ years & the Stealth has an ROI average of 3 ½ years. QuietCool has one of the fastest ROIs of any green energy product on the market today. With solar, insulation, and upgraded windows having a 10+ year ROI, QuietCool is a simple choice.
The reason these whole house fans are able to recover your initial investment so quickly is due to several factors:
As mentioned above energy prices are only going up so anything we buy now to lock in savings only gets better as time goes on.
Our climate in Temecula and surrounding area is perfectly suited for a whole house fan!
