To top it all off, this fan saves inverter battery power if you live in an area where there are regular blackouts by power companies. The main reason I bought this is because my power company was hiking their already high electricity rates even higher. Replacing my normal fan with this one will drop the monthly units consumed by quite a bit. Because they’re the most affordable and widely available, large-diameter fans are still a good solution for homeowners living in warmer regions. These fans cost less up front, but installation may be more difficult. Moving a joist in order to frame out a box for the fan, or installing additional attic venting might wind up costing more than the fan itself. Another disadvantage is that during the winter, the vented opening works like an open window, giving warm moist air an easy path out and into your attic. To prevent heat loss, you’ll need to build an insulated box to cover your fan during the off-season.
They are suggested for use in commercial and industrial applications where there is sufficient ceiling height to create a temperature differential between the floor and ceiling. The best option is to install an intake vent to work in conjunction with your roof vent fan. It has been said before, but unless you are building a 60 Sq Ft rolling mold farm then you must incorporate a roof vent fan into your Campervan Ventilation System. The addition of a roof vent fan to your build will assist with airflow and in turn, help regulate temperatures and minimize condensation inside your van. Since most attic fans are located high up on a roof, this design allows for excellent cross ventilation of the entire attic space. The attic fans also need lots of intake air vents along the lower edges of the roof. Continuous soffit venting is the best and the air from the outdoors needs to be able to easily enter the lower reaches of the attic where the roof passes over the outside walls of the house. A whole house fan might be in a hallway or some other central location of the home. The fan is always located on the highest ceiling or wall and oriented so that it blows air directly into an attic space.

This is to prevent the fan from blowing air into your wall. This step is optional as you may have to instead use ducts or the exhaust housing, which may be an inclusion in the fan you bought. If you’re putting it in your bathroom, consider choosing an exhaust fan with a moisture sensor. On average, it needs to run for about 10 minutes after showering for it to remove all moisture. If you get one with a sensor or a timer, you can simply leave it be after you step out of the bathroom. Three-phase hood fan motors also allow for smaller, less expensive wiring, making them safer and less expensive to run. Fans had been supplanted by air conditioners for the past several decades but are now resurging in popularity. First, they sip electricity while air conditioners guzzle power. Second, the latest generation of fans sport self-sealing insulated shutters that close when the fan’s not operating.
Remove the wall cap and apply a bead of silicone adhesive to the siding and gasket around the hole. Use the reference hole as a landmark to transfer your measurements from the attic to the ceiling. Can escalate to challenging, depending on how easy it is to run the duct to the outdoors. This fan is replacing the original fan in an older mobile home.

It’s perfect for reducing cooling costs as it pulls fresh air from outside and expels warm attic air out through the exhaust vents. Roof-mounted attic fans require a vent hold near the top of the roof where the fan can sit over the vent on a plastic or metal base.

It is very rare to focus on the low forecast during the warmer months of the year. The low forecast is exactly what you need to pay attention to when running a whole house fan. There is a huge change between the high of the day compared to the low of the day in practically all locations in the US. It can range anywhere from 20 to 50 degrees difference, and in some cases, even more. This is why whole house fans work in just about every climate zone. As soon as that temperature swing kicks in and it cools off outside, it is the perfect time to run your whole house fan. We have performed many different tests using the best equipment in the industry to measure the indoor air quality inside of homes. As you can see, the air quality was very poor due to lack of ventilation in the home.

Attic fans pull air from the outside through existing vents in your attic. This allows your attic to stay within 10ºF of the outside temperature at all times when the fan is running.

Wall louvers are installed in the gable end of the attic. The higher they are placed, the more effective they become as exhaust vents. Wall louvers are not preferred for ventilating an attic, because they provide limited airflow under the roof deck, resulting in “hot spots.” Depending on the type of fan you get, you may have to seal the top and bottom of the hole using wood pieces.
