It’s that time of year. Warm days lead to cool nights, and cool nights lead to welcomed savings on our energy bills. When the sun goes down in the evenings, many of us have the opportunity to turn off our AC and cool our homes using the best kind of air – fresh, fall air. And after continuously running our air conditioners all summer, who doesn’t love that satisfying feeling of opening a few windows for the first time in months?
By cooling the home using outside air, modern whole house fans offer energy conscious home owners an inexpensive and efficient alternative to air conditioning. In fact, when the outside conditions are right, whole house fans will quickly cool an entire home for a fraction of the cost, using a fraction of the energy.
Today’s modern consumer cares about their energy consumption and recognizes the benefits of energy conservation. Conveniently, energy saved translates to money saved, making it a win-win for our planet and our pocketbooks. For this reason, it’s no surprise that the number of home owners utilizing solar panels for energy is on the rise. The efficiency and affordability of using a whole house fan for cooling makes it a logical addition to a home that’s already reaping the benefits solar energy.
