At Centric Air our mission is to provide homeowners with an affordable alternative to expensive air conditioning. Although no whole house fan can completely replace the need for air conditioning, a Centric Air system can reduce its dependency by as much as 50 to 90% saving homeowners hundreds of dollars a year in energy costs.
Unlike conventional whole house fans that are large, noisy and unattractive, a Centric Air system is modern, powerful and ultra quiet. Contributing to its exceptionally quiet operation is the German engineered, acoustically designed and precision balanced fan that is rated for 40,000 hours of operation. These high efficient fans are made of composite materials with wing tip design for increased performance and efficiency, while reducing noise up to 3 decibels.
Other whole house fan manufactures typically use an open motor with exposed electrical windings, which allows dirt and debris to plug the motor causing it to over heat, and prematurely fail. They also use cheaply made propeller fans, which can become unbalanced over time causing the fan to be unstable and noisy.
Adding to Centric Airs remarkably quiet operation is the acoustical ductwork. Unlike standard ducting, acoustical ductwork not only dampens the noise of rushing air but also absorbs vibration, allowing the system to quietly operate even while you sleep.
While traditional whole house fans consists of large louvered shutters that can rattle, squeak and vibrate over time, Centric Air systems use a modern eggcrate style grill, which not only looks nice but also allows for 30% more airflow compared to standard return air grills. Located above the grill in the attic and out of sight, is an industrial grade damper box, which is designed to seal off the living space from the attic when the system is not operating.
The cost to operate a Centric Air whole house fan is just pennies an hour making it one of the most energy efficient upgrades you can make to your home. Centric Air is also one of the few ducted whole house fan manufactures that meet the strict energy efficiency standards set by the California Energy Commission.
