A Centric Air whole house fan is modern, powerful and ultra quiet. The fan motors used in Centric Air systems are acoustically designed and precision balanced. These highly efficient fans are made of composite materials with wingtip design for increased performance and efficiency.
Adding to Centric Air remarkably quiet operation is the acoustical and heat resistant ductwork. This specialty ductwork not only dampens the noise of rushing air but also absorbs vibration, allowing the system to quietly operate even while you sleep.
Other whole house fan manufacturers like Quiet Cool typically use an open face motor with exposed electrical windings, which allows dirt and debris to plug the motor causing it to overheat, and prematurely fail.
They also use cheaply made unbalanced fan blades, which over time, can cause the fan to become unstable and very noisy.
While traditional or older style whole house fans consists of large louvered shutters that can rattle, squeak and vibrate, Centric Air systems use an industrial grade damper and high airflow grill, which not only looks attractive but allows for 30% more airflow compared to standard return air grills.
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. To learn about the differences between Centric Air, Quiet Cool and traditional whole house fans watch the following video
