IMPORTANT: All CFM ratings for CentricAir have been verified by an independent testing agency authorized by the State of California as meeting the strict (HVI-916) standard. When comparing CFM (airflow) ratings against similar style whole house fans, it’s important to compare the HVI-916 CFM certified rating. This is the true apple to apples comparison. All other CFM ratings are whatever the manufacture makes up. The following link is to the CA.Gov website and allows you to search a companies Brand to see their products true CFM rating CA.Gov
The CentricAir 2.7 is a high quality, very powerful and ultra quiet alternative cooling solution. It uses a German engineered industrial grade fan motor that can provide 30% more power while using 1/3 less energy as compared to other industry standard fans.
These high-end industrial grade motors are built to last and are rated for approximately 40,000 hours of operation. The noise level is also really something to hear – or, actually not hear. At a very quiet 51 dBA on high, the 2.7 is whisper quiet. Every aspect of this system is built to a rigorous specification suitable to demanding industrial applications and is completely maintenance free.
The optional two speed remote control with timer is our most versatile remote control which features an LED display and 5 Timer Functions 1, 2, 4, 8 hours or ON. On high speed the system operates at a powerful 2709 CFM. Set to low speed the system provides a comfortable flow of air while maintaining a whisper quiet noise level.
A fundamental problem with traditional whole house fans was air leakage between the attic and living spaces. This could result in dirty attic air entering your home. The CentricAir 2.7 takes care of this problem with an ultra low leakage, maintenance free, industrial-quality damper. Silicone seals are provided to ensure sealing longevity; they also provide phenomenal resistance to weathering and changes in temperature. Silicone seals have an approximate service life of 30 years and remain flexible down to -40°F.
The German-engineered sealed motor and industrial grade damper never requires lubrication or maintenance of any type.
