A level playing field is described as “a situation in which everyone has a fair and equal chance of succeeding.”
A recent investigation by the California Energy Commission (CEC) confirmed that one of our competitors (QC Manufacturing the manufacturer of Quiet Cool Fans) was not
abiding by this rule.
We recently learned that the CEC has entered into a settlement agreement with QC Manufacturing for “stating greater air flow and air flow efficiency data than could be verified by the Commission’s testing laboratory, in violation of sections 1606(a)(3)(E)(l) and 1608.” As part of the settlement agreement QC Manufacturing must pay $205,000 to the California Energy Commission and notify customers who purchased QC whole house fans prior to July l 8, 20 I 6, to address any concerns they might have with the air flow rate and air flow efficiency of their fans.
Since there are no Federal standards other than truth in advertising laws to specifically keep people in our industry honest, we are grateful to the California Energy Commission for ensuring that customer receive what they paid for.
We would like to thank our customers for trusting in us and we look forward to providing you with our ultra quiet, highly reliable and energy efficient whole house fans.
