Whole House Fan with Solar Panels
When you think of summer, you think of running fans and the air conditioner to remain cool. Sometimes the fans and AC need a break, or you run the risk of overheating them. Other times you might not use them throughout the day as it would drive up your electricity bill. Solatube offers a whole house fan that runs solely on solar energy.
What Is A Whole House Fan?
A whole house fan circulates air in a home, not to be confused with an attic ventilator, that exhausts air through an attic through a gable or an opening in the roof. A whole house fan absorbs the cooler air from outside, either through the windows or doors, to cool the home.
Then, while bringing cold air inside, the fan will push warm air outside through the home’s vents, creating a cycle of continuously moving air in the house.
Why Go With A Whole House Fan From Solatube?
There are several reasons to go with a whole house fan. These reasons include:
- An extremely quiet fan, making it less disruptive for conversations, watching movies, or listening to music.
- Reduces air conditioner costs. Solatube’s whole house fan does not use electricity to cool your home.
- Improves the quality of the indoor air and removes odors.
- It does not contain refrigerants that could pollute the air.
- Creates a healthier home environment
- Cools quickly in the summer months and rids the home of stale air during the winter months.
How Does Solar Energy Help With Cooling?
Solar panels are nothing new. These days, solar paneling is used on homes to provide a renewable source of electricity. Not only that, but they’ve been used to create hot water, heat pools, solar-powered buses, solar-powered planes, solar vaccine refrigeration, and even solar-powered trains.
One way solar paneling helps with cooling is by blocking the sun’s rays from becoming absorbed by your home. Another is that while an air conditioner powered by solar paneling will take up a lot of power, the cells provide, smaller units, such as fans and whole-house fans, will last longer. You will stay cooler for longer with a whole house fan run on solar panels, but you can use the energy you do not have on cooling elsewhere.
Why Go With Solar?
There are so many reasons to go with solar for your whole house fan. Not just for your entire house fan, but other areas of your life as well.
Solar power is becoming more affordable, but it’s becoming the choice that more homeowners make. Energy from solar panels is free of pollution, but after the initial investment to set up the system, it’s the power is free.
As many homeowners know, electricity comes from fossil fuels, which are a finite resource. Because of that, electricity prices fluctuate and increase quickly. It only makes sense to switch to a power source that’s free and helps the environment.
Solatube states that they believe in excellent service, and good service is all about trust. This concept is why they offer a 5-vear warranty on their installation services, which brings it down to three years for metal roofs. They also have a 10-year warranty for their Solatube products.
They will repair or replace the product if it doesn’t perform as it should due to material defects or workmanship defects. If there is an error in installation, they’ll fix to perform as it should.
If you’re thinking of making the switch a whole house fan run by solar panels, Solatube’s whole house fan is the way to go. Quiet, efficient, and doesn’t pollute the air inside or outside your home.
Heating and cooling costs are something residents will always need, day or night. Solatube makes it easier to cool your home without worrying about the rising costs of electricity and cooling.
