Quietcool Whole-house Fans
A whole house fan can rapidly cool your home, especially if your home is closed up during the day without ventilation or air conditioning.
Instead of turning on your A/C, you may opt to open windows and allow a nice cross breeze to cool your home down. This is called a passive cross breeze. This passive breeze within your home will slowly cool the ambient air to a comfortable level, but will not move enough air to cool the heat mass within the home.
Thermal Mass Cooling with QuietCool – How it Works
A properly sized Quietcool whole house fan creates an active cross breeze that can completely replace hot stagnant air in your home and remove the heat mass in less than 10 minutes. And it will continue to keep your home cool by exchanging 100 percent of the air volume in your home 15-20 times per hour or about one full air exchange every 3 to 4 minutes.
Mass “cooling” occurs when the system is removing stale hot air and replacing it with fresh cool air; all this occurring at a high rate of speed and volume. Instead of recycling hot, stale ambient air through a closed-loop air conditioning system, the QuietCool system is exchanging hot, stale ambient air with fresh, cool outside air, through an open-loop whole house ventilation system faster and at a fraction of the cost of running an air conditioner.
Net Effect of Cooled Mass
A “cool mass” home does not reheat as much or as quickly as a “hot mass” home. Within a day or two of installing a QuietCool system, homeowners are amazed when they come home after work… it was 90 – 100 ++ degrees outside, and they walk into a home that is… not 90 degrees, but maybe 72, 74, or 76 degrees.
The reason is that the mass of the home has been cooled by the QuietCool system, and thus did not reheat as rapidly throughout the day as a typical home would. The initial reaction from new QuietCool owners is one of amazement and is the reason why QuietCool fans are so popular.
