The Best Whole House Fan Systems
The first step in creating the best whole house fan system is to choose the best whole house fan for your home! We recommend an attic fan that provides 3 CFM (cubic feet per minute) for every square foot above ground in your home. Providing adequate airflow allows your whole house fan to complete air exchanges every 3-4 minutes and create a quiet, cool, comfortable, and healthy indoor environment. The best whole house fans are an excellent AC alternative, but can also cut your AC-related energy costs by up to 90% when used in conjunction with your home cooling system!
Colorado Home Cooling & Daylighting proudly offers Whole House Fans from QuietCool and Triangle!
Whole House Ventilation Fans
Attic fans and vents are a key component of every whole house ventilation fan system, and manufacturers require it as part of the whole house fan installation.
The most efficient home ventilation systems match the airflow in the attic to the airflow from the whole house fan. We recommend a minimum of 1 square foot (144 sq. in.) of net free air (sfnf) ventilation for every 1,000 cfm of air moved by the fan. Most homes need additional attic ventilation to complete the installation of a whole house fan by adding passive vents or a solar powered attic fan.
We install all-metal oversized (144 sq in of net free) attic fans and vents to complete your house fan system with a variety of makes and models to suit your home ventilation needs. For homes with tile or metal roofs, we will install venting in the existing soffits or gables of your home. From solar attic fans to gable vents and more, we have the solutions to complete your whole house ventilation system!

"We have used our A/C 80-90% less often than before installing our whole house fan. It's like having the A/C on! Wish we would have done this years ago!"
— Mike, Highlands Ranch
"As an architect designing zero energy homes, I expect the best service and components for our projects. Whole House fans are all you need for cooling in a front range home!"

How To Use Your Whole House Fan
Using your whole house fan couldn't be easier! When the outside air temperature is cooler than inside your home or attic, do the following:
1 Open a few windows 4-6 inches
2 Turn on your whole house fan using the switch, portable remote, or timer
3 Feel a nice, cool breeze as air passes through your home, replacing all the stale, trapped air
4 Experience a complete air exchange in your home in just 3-4 minutes
5 Save money as warm air is expelled from your attic, keeping your home comfortable for hours and cutting cooling-related energy use by up to 90%
Did You Know: While some choose to benefit from running their whole house fan system during cooler times in the morning and evening, because of Colorado's cool, dry climate you can use your whole house fan system even in the peak of the day almost year-round! A whole house fan and attic ventilation can even increase the efficiency of your A/C or evaporative cooling system, too!

Our pricing includes all the framing, drywall, roof and electrical work required to complete the fan installation according to the fan, shutter, and vent manufacturers’ specifications.
For homes with high and vaulted ceilings, we recommend a fan that moves more than 3cfm/sf (as there is a greater volume of air in the home to be moved).
All of our whole house fans are installed with wall-mounted controls that include a timer and high/low switch.
Remote control options are available for all whole house fans – please inquire.
Oversize roof vents (each OS vent provides 1 sq foot of net free ventilation) and can be painted to match your roof color.
We have additional charges for installing vents on steep roofs (8:12 pitch and greater).
We can install Soffit Vents and Vertical Exhaust Shutters to provide ventilation for homes with metal or tile roofs.
We have additional charges for plaster walls, lead paint containment, high and sloped ceilings, and vertical installations.
