What Are Attic and Whole–House Fans?

There is often some confusion regarding whole–house fans and attic fans, specifically in what differentiates one from the other. Perhaps the simplest explanation is that an attic fan ventilates the attic only, while a whole–house fan functions as a primary cooling system that runs during the cooler times of the day. Both serve to ventilate the house, which helps to maintain great indoor air quality, but you should discuss your options with trained professionals to determine which is right for your needs.

Whole–House Fans

The whole–house fan is mounted between the living space and the attic, running when temperatures outside are cooler—during the nighttime and early morning hours. Fresh air is drawn into the house through opened windows, while stale indoor air is pulled into the attic. This cooler air supplants the hot air that is in the attic, forcing it out through the vents in the roof.

Attic Fans

Attic fans work during the hottest time of the day in order to prevent superheated air from building up in the attic. With the sun beating down on your roof and heat in your home naturally rising, the attic can become incredibly hot. Obviously, you’re not hanging out the in the attic. The point is not to make it a more comfortable place, though. It’s to prevent heat transfer through building materials from raising temperatures in your living space.
