How Do I Get My Fan Installed?

Installation is straightforward and simple. Ideally if you are handy you can install the fans yourself and have them wired by a licensed electrician or simply plug them in.  Normally any handyman, electrician or contractor can install a whole house fan.



How Do QuietCool Fans Work?

Because heat rises, the rooms upstairs and especially your attic is generally much hotter than the rest of your home.  This hot air acts like a heating blanket that keeps your entire home hot, even into the cool evening hours.

QuietCool Fans remove the hot and stale air from your entire home and replaces it with cool outside air.  The fans Quietly pull the cool air into the home through several opened windows.  As the air circulates, the fans suck the air up into your attic.  This creates a positive pressure in the attic causing the hot air to be pushed out your attic through the existing attic vents.  This continuous circulation of air not only cools your attic, but also cools your entire living space.  You can actually feet a cool breeze of air.

The motors and flexible ducting for the QuietCool Fans are installed in your attic space so the only thing visible from inside your home is an attractive, white ceiling grille and a switch & timer on the wall.  We recommend installing smaller fans (like the QC-1500, QC ES-1500, QC ES-2250 or the QC-2250) in each of your occupied bedrooms and a larger QuietCool fan in the hallway.  Yes, you can sleep with the QuietCools running on warm summer nights.

Utility companies report that the installation of a whole house fan can cut some air conditioning bills in half!

QuietCool Fans Are Truly Amazing! They Are Maintenance Free and Come With A 10 Year Warranty!

Q: How Do I Decide On The Right System?

A: There are several choices based on the below information.  The important thing is that you get the right amount of total CFM based on the size of your home.  Once you determine the CFMs needed then decide on a single fan or multiple fans, and your motor type (Classic or Energy Saver) and switch type (remote, wall switch, electronic timer).

Step 1 – Calculate The System Based Your Homes Square Footage

Determine the square footage of the home.  You may find this information on the property tax record or on an internet search of your address. Multiply the square footage by the below rules to locate the right sized system:


Advanced System
:  Multiply your home's square footage by 3;

Example:  2,000 square feet x 3 = 6,000.  In this scenario a QuietCool system that moves a total volume of 6000 CFM will achieve 22.5 full volume air exchanges every hour.

Deluxe System:  Multiple your home's square footage by 2.5;

Example: 2,000 square footage x 2.5 = 5,000.   In this scenario a QuietCool system that moves a total volume of 5000 CFM will achieve 18.75 full volume air exchanges every hour.

Basic system:  Multiply your home's square footage by 2;

Example:  2,000 s.f. x 2 = 4000.  In this scenario a QuietCool system that moves a total volume of 5000 CFM will achieve 15 full volume air exchanges every hour.


Step 2 – Choose A High CFM, Central Location Fan or Multiple Location, Lower CFM Fans For Zoned Cooling

Central Location, Single Fan Configuration:

A single fan system that is installed in a central location in the home.  A single system would typically be installed at the midpoint of a single story home, or at the top of the stairs in a two-story home.

A single QuietCool system will nicely ventilate an entire home, but lacks the individual room control that a zoned system offers.

For the above 2000 s.f. home example, a QC cL-6400 is the ONLY single-fan system that would produce “advanced” ventilation based on the 3:1 CFM:s.f. ratio.

For the same example home, an “advanced” single-fan system could be a QC ES-5400.

And, for the same home, a QC CL-4500, QC CL-4700 would all be “basic” single-fan systems.

Multiple Location, Zoned Multi Fan System:

A multi-fan zoned system gives the you the maximum control over yourr ventilation and cooling.

When sizing a zoned system, the combined CFM of all zoned units (not each individual fan) needs to add up to the total CFM requirements based on your home's square footage.

All zoned fans can be turned on simultaneously (or turned off separately) when the entire home needs to be cooled, but a zoned system allows individual bedroom control, for example, and thus zoned systems need to be sized for the zones.

Thus, in the above example, an “advanced” zoned system would comprise two or more fans whose total CFM = 6000 CFM or more.

A “deluxe” zoned system would comprise two or more fans whose total CFM = 5000 CFM or more.

A “basic” zoned system would comprise two or more fans whose total CFM = 4000 CFM or more.


Step 3 — Choose a system based on motor type:

The last step in selecting the right system is to decide if you want a standard motor system (Classic Line), or a high energy-efficient motor system (ES Energy Saver Line). ES-1500, ES-2250. ES-3100, ES-4700 and ES-6400.

All QuietCool systems toward the same results of  performing high volume air exchanges to achieve thermal mass cooling.  The only difference between the systems is the type of motor used.

Consumers who seek to buy the least expensive system are encouraged to purchase a system from the Classic line.  The systems in these fan lines utilize a high performance permanent split-capacitor type motor that delivers average to above-average energy efficiency.

Consumers who seek to buy a system that is the least expensive to operate, in terms of electricity consumption, are encouraged to purchase a system from the Energy Saver or Stealth lines.  The systems in these fan lines utilize a specially built-for-QuietCool highest energy efficient ECM, AC-DC brushless motor.

ECM — or “electronically commutated motors” — are highly durable and energy efficient motors that contain within them an internal rectifier that converts AC current to DC voltage.  Thus, as the ECM motor gains momentum immediately after the system is turned on, it quickly converts from AC to DC which significantly reduces the amount of electricity needed to run the system.

The California Energy Commission (CEC) rates whole house fan energy efficiency on a ratio of CFM per watt of power consumed to run the system.  QuietCool systems basically “own” the CEC ratings chart.  Customers who want the most energy efficient whole house fans on the market today choose QuietCool, hands down!

The QC ES-4700 and all other ES line fans feature American built AC/DC brushless motor technology which allow these fans to be the highest rated for energy efficiency. The QC ES-4700 is a solid workhorse of our ES line, yet still draws a puny 494 watts while moving 4,427 CFM, and on low it only draws 64 watts while moving 2,050 CFM. The CL-4700 moves 4,672 CFM High/3,586 CFM Low and uses High 591 watts/Low 491.

The payback on the ES line vs the Classic line depends on your climate and how long you run the fans. It also depends on how long you plan on living in your home. The typical back on the classic line is 1.5 - 2.5 Years, the payback on the Energy Saver Line is 2.0 - 3.5 Years

Adjustments to System Sizing Recommendation

CA Title 24 codes and codes from various public utility companies — recommend a minimum of 2:1 CFM:s.f. ratio.  Our recommendations above may be amended based on several factors depending on regional climate, geography and elevation.  Call us if you need futher assistance sizing the right system.

As an example, QuietCool customers in coastal or mountain climates, or in the northern states, may find that a 1:1 CFM:s.f. ratio system may provide adequate cooling and ventilation.  In contrast, customers in high temperature climates such as high temperature areas will want to size a system closer to the 3:1 ratio in order to achieve the best cooling and ventilation results.


Q: How Do I Place An Order?

A:
Order online here or call us to place your order.   We offer quick, free shipping on all of the fans. Orders are processed quickly to ensure that your fans are delivered as soon as possible.  The shipment generally takes 2-5 bussiness days.

Q: What does CFM Mean?

Whole house fans are classified by the amount of air they can move or is simple terms the power of the fan. This amount of power is measured in Cubic Feet of air per Minute, or CFM. For maximum effectiveness, a whole house fan's CFM rating should be 2 to 3 times the square footage of the home. For example, a 1,500 square foot home should have a whole house fan system capable of moving 3,000 to 4,500 CFM.

Q: Does ceiling height matter?

Yes. If the ceilings are higher than 9 feet, increase your CFM Per Sq. Ft. ratio above 2:1

Q: Does it matter if I sleep with my bedroom doors closed at night?

Yes. If you want to enjoy zoned, individual bedroom ventilation, and you sleep with your bedroom doors closed, you will need to install (QC-1500 or QC-2250) individual bedroom units along with the larger fans in the hallway or larger rooms.  Also, if you want to save even more money, don't ventilate the entire house while everybody's sleeping.  Ventilate only the rooms you sleep in at night with zoned units.

Q: Is A Single QuietCool Fan Enough Or Should I Install Multiple QC Fans? 

The answer depends on how you answer the above questions.  If you have a 2 story, 2000 square foot home and you like to sleep with your bedroom doors open.  A "good" system requires a QuietCool system that draws a minimum 4000 CFM (2:1), a "better" system requires 5000 CFM (2.5:1) and the "best" system will draw 6000 CFM (3:1).

A "basic" system would be a QuietCool QC-4500 or QC-6400 CFM unit installed in a central location at the top of the stairs and sleeping with the bedroom doors open.

A "Deluxe" system would include a combination of fans. For example, you could have a QuietCool QC-4700 CFM unit located at the top of the stairs and a separate QuietCool QC-1500 or QC-2250 CFM unit installed in your master bedroom. The total combined CFM is over 4700 CFM, but with two fans instead of one, you have the option of zoning your household ventilation.

The "Advanced" system could include the two fans in the "better" system noted above, plus an attic gable fan and/or a garage fan to help ventilate those spaces as well.

Together, an attic fan and garage fan maximize the whole house ventilation benefits and dramatically reduce A/C usage and bills.
l
Q: Can I Use My QuietCool Fan With Air Conditioning?

No.  You do not want to use your fans at the same time.  Doing so, would caused the air conditioned air to be sucked out of your home.  Turn your fans on when it starts to cool outside.

Q: I was wondering if any of your fans can be ducted directly to the outside?

All of the fans are designed to vent directly into the attic and the hot air expels out through your attic vents.  The exception is the roof fans that mount on your roof and vent to the  outside.  Roof fans are designed for flat roof or roofs without sufficient attic space to accommodate a whole house fan.

Choose your fan system based on the motor type (Classic or Energy Saver "ES"):  These are special motors (unlike the ones found in a Home Depot Whole House Fan).

The last step in selecting a fan system for your home is to decide if you want to install a standard motor system, or a high energy-efficient motor system.

All QuietCool systems achieve the same goal of performing high volume air exchanges necessary to achieve thermal mass cooling.  The only difference between the "Classic" and "Energy Saver" systems is the type of motor used.

Customers wishing buy the least expensive system are encouraged to purchase a system from the Classic "CL" line.  The systems in these fan lines utilize a high performance permanent split-capacitor type motor that delivers average to above-average energy efficiency.

Customers wishing to buy a system that is the least expensive to operate, in terms of electricity consumption, are encouraged to purchase a system from the "ES" Energy Saver line.  The systems in these fan lines utilize a specially built-for-QuietCool highest energy efficient ECM, AC-DC brushless motor.

VENTING YOUR ATTIC FOR QUIETCOOL

Whole house fans vent air from the outside, into the house through open windows, into the attic, and out the attic vents to the outside world  In order for a QuietCool system to run efficiently and effectively, there needs to be adequate attic venting to allow the system to pressurize the air outside  

QuietCool, recommends homes have a minimum of 1 square foot of net free vent area (NFVA) for every 750 CFM in the whole house fan system  This minimum recommendation is validated by most third party agencies including the US Department of Energy (DOE) and Pacific Gas and Electrict (PG&E).  To calculate the amount of venting needed by fan model, simply divide the CFM specification by 750  This will give you the square footage of NFVA that will be needed
Example: (1) QC CL-4700 - 4505/750 = 6 01 NFVA

The venting requirement is not something of concern to most QuietCool purchasers unless the home was built before the mid 1970s  Most homes built since mid 1970 will have adequate venting to vent a basic QuietCool system However, for all applications, we encourage contractors and dealers to visually inspect, and if necessary measure, the available venting in any attic in which a QuietCool system is to be installed  Inspecting venting is very easy and takes little time.
