Few things are more important to your health than the air that you breathe. Ensuring high air quality is incredibly important to your respiratory and cardiovascular health. While you may not be able to control the air you breathe outside your home, there are things you can do to control the air within it. This is where whole-house fans come in. We are going to give you a rundown of what a whole-house fan system is, what health benefits it can provide, and why our whole fan systems are the best in the business.
What is a whole house fan system?
You might be wondering what a whole-house fan even is. Unlike the name implies, a whole-house fan is actually an entire cooling system that pushes out all the air in the home in order to pull in air from outside (usually through an open window). This allows homeowners to run the whole house fan for a few hours (usually in the evening) in order to exchange the hot, musty air in your home with the cooler, fresher air outside of it. The system usually pushes air into the attic where a vent will push out all of the air within the home. If you want to learn more, we have an in-depth introduction into whole house fan systems on another page.
What health benefits does a whole house fan system provide?
Ok, so now you have a better idea of what a whole house fan system is. But why should you get one? What makes it so much better than an A/C system? While one of the premier benefits of a whole house fan is lower energy bills, an often overlooked benefit is how much it can improve the air quality in your home.
The air in your home is much more polluted than you think. According to the EPA, the air within your home is likely much more polluted than the air outside. When you consider all the pollutants that affect the outside air (car exhaust, chemical plants, etc.) it can be alarming to hear that you may be dealing with worse pollution where you spend most of your time (According to the EPA, most people spend around 90% of their time within their home). Things like dust, smoke, steam, and even airborne pathogens can stick around in the air your breathing for days at a time.
Getting exposed to these pollutants is not harmless either. You may begin to experience itchy eyes, a scratchy throat, a stuffy/stopped up nose, chronic headaches, dizziness, or fatigue. According to the American Lung Association, poor air quality can also increase the risk of lung diseases (like asthma), infections, or even lung cancer.
Whole house fans can exchange the dirty air inside with the cleaner air outside in a matter of minutes. Keeping your air quality higher throughout the week can avoid a lot of nasty illnesses, allergies, and in some cases respiratory diseases. All it takes is cracking a few windows and running your whole house fan system to give a boost to your indoor air quality.
