How Does an Attic Fan Work?
Attic fans work to cool your home by bringing in fresh air from outside and circulating it through your home while pushing out warm air.
Here’s how to use the Quiet Cool attic fan system:
- Open a select number of windows during times of the day when the temperature is cooler. This tends to be in the mornings and evenings.
- Set a fan speed and timer to customize how you’d like the fan to run.
- The attic fan pulls cooler fresh air in from outside and pushes hot, stagnant air through the attic space.
- As the attic fan runs, your living space becomes cooler. Enjoy!
When to Use an Attic Fan
The best time to use a whole house fan is when the outside air temperature is relatively cool. This is typically in the morning and evening hours, and it’s also when the air outside is most likely to be cooler than the air inside your home.
An attic fan is also helpful in the winter to rid your home of stale air and odors, especially from cooking, smoke, or pets.
Benefits of a Whole House Fan
An attic fan does more than just cool down hot attics or provide attic ventilation. An attic fan can also cool your home without clunky or expensive air conditioner units. Aurora homeowners choose whole house fan installations for a long list of benefits.
Lower Energy Bills
Cooling your home during the summer is expensive. However, the reduced energy consumption of an attic fan means that you can get comparable cooling for a fraction of the price – up to 90% less!
Save Money Overall
An attic fan has a long-life span and requires minimal upkeep. Instead of buying expensive parts and paying for emergency repairs, you’ll have a reliable cooling solution for years.
A whole house fan operates with whisper-quiet sound levels. Instead of loud, clanking motors, you’ll hear nothing but the hint of a fresh breeze.
Instead of cooling stagnant air, an attic fan brings in a constant stream of fresh air into your home. You’ll rid your living space of pollen, pet dander, bacteria, mold, and other pollutants.
Cool, Comfortable Temperatures
The effects of a whole house fan can be felt in minutes, as cool air circulates evenly throughout your home. Instead of having to cool already warm air (like an air conditioner does), your attic fan brings in fresh air at a constant rate.

Frequently Asked Questions
Our team of experts answers the most commonly asked questions about installing an attic fan below.
What is the difference between an attic fan and ridge vents?
Promoting airflow in attics can be done through either an attic fan, ridge vents, or both. An attic fan is mechanical, however, while a ridge vent allows for passive airflow. Also, while an attic fan and attic vents move air outward, ridge vents move air in and out of your attic.
How long does it take for an attic fan to cool my home?
The short answer is that it depends on your house size, system, and the time of day. You should begin to feel results quickly, with air exchanges cycling 15-22 times per hour.
Does an attic fan include a timer?
We recommend including a timer with an attic fan to have more control over how the fan cools your home.
