Give Your Home The Breath of Fresh Air That It Needs
QuietCool Whole House Fans Help Remove:
If you are looking to slash A/C costs from 50-90% from your home’s current cooling system, cool your home without an air conditioner, or provide the most effective indoor air-quality enhancement, a whole house fan is an effective and energy-efficient solution. At Balance Point, our specialists recommend a QuietCool whole home fan as a means to keep your home cooler and ventilated utilizing the cooler temperatures outside.
What Does a Whole House Fan Do?
Homeowners here in the Fort Collins, CO, and Northern Colorado area generally use their home fan systems to supplement their air conditioner which will cut their cooling costs significantly. It is highly effective and energy efficient, as it employs cooler air from outdoors to cool your home, cutting back on your air conditioner’s usage.
The fan works by turning it on when the temperature outside dips below your home’s inside temperature, usually during the evenings or early mornings. The fan, typically installed in your ceiling via your attic, pulls the fresh air in from open windows and draws it up throughout your home. All this air movement cools your home, sending the warmer air up to your fan and into your attic, where it exits to the outdoors through properly sized attic vents.
As opposed to an attic fan, which only removes hot air from your attic, a QuietCool whole house fan drives air throughout your entire home’s living space, utilizing thermal mass cooling to create a breeze within your entire home.
The professional home analysis is a crucial step in making sure the QuietCool Home Fan systems will be a great fit for your needs as a consumer. Be sure to reach out to our professionals. They can assess your home to develop an installation plan, and ensure attic ventilation, electrical, and fan placement is proper.

- Remains extremely quiet without vibration noise due to the QuietCool Patented Ducted Design

A Breathing Home is a Healthy Home
Poor air quality has become an epidemic across the country. Every home is plagued with airborne illness, VOC gases, stale air, harmful pathogens, viruses, and more. These airborne annoyances can stay clogged inside of a home for months, polluting, and spreading illness throughout your family. Too many people have accepted this as normal when there is a simple solution to this problem.
QuietCool Whole House Fans are just that solution. These incredibly efficient and whisper-quiet fans can help alleviate these issues at the simple press of a button. When turned on, they pull large amounts of air from opened windows, throughout the home, up into the attic, and finally out the attic vents. This process of thermal mass cooling allows your home to completely replace the air in 3-4 minutes.
In fact, using just your A/C and keeping your windows shut could drastically increase the chances of spreading illness throughout your family and home. QuietCool Whole House Fans were designed specifically to pull clean, cool air from outside into your home so you no longer have to simply recondition the same pre-existing air over and over again.
These benefits directly impact indoor air quality and improve ventilation which all experts agree is crucial in a time when indoor air quality is progressively getting worse.
According to the EPA , Indoor air quality is worsening as people are now spending more time indoors.
● Americans, on average, spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors, 1 where the concentrations of some pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations
● People who are often most susceptible to the adverse effects of pollution (e.g., the very young, older adults, people with cardiovascular or respiratory disease) tend to spend even more time indoors.
● Indoor concentrations of some pollutants have increased in recent decades due to such factors as energy-efficient building construction (when it lacks sufficient mechanical ventilation to ensure adequate air exchange) and increased use of synthetic building materials, furnishings, personal care products, pesticides, and household cleaners.
