If you live in a two-story home, it’s likely you’ve experienced the following: After a long hot day, your upstairs bedrooms are still uncomfortably hot when it’s time to go to bed, even though you may have been running your air conditioner continuously and the evening is now cool and comfortable outside.
This problem is the result of a couple of key factors. First, obviously, is that heat rises and cold air falls. This means the heat becomes trapped in the upper level of the home and cold air from the air conditioning falls to the lower level, making the downs stairs much colder than upstairs. Second, heat from the attic radiates down into the home. Unless this hot attic air is removed it will continue to heat up the living space.
CentricAir whole house fans will not only solve this problem on all but the hottest most humid nights, but it will save you a ton of money as well. Just turn on your quiet whole house fan after the sun goes down and when the air is cooler outside than inside. By the time you’re ready for bed, your bedroom will be cool and fresh. And of course, the rest of the house will be nice and cool too, so you can start the next day with a lower air conditioning load that will save you even more money.
