With the warm weather and occasional cloying humidity, it makes sense to have a whole house fan installed. You need to be able to keep the air inside your home circulating to prevent the muggy, stagnant feeling inside where you are supposed to be able to sit back and relax. The installation of the fan will need to be completed by an electrician in West Palm Beach, like those at Elcon Electric, but the daily operation will be up to you. There are a few tips to using your whole house fan that will make it more effective and do what you want it to do.
*You need to have enough windows open in the house to ensure there is plenty of air for the fan to circulate. Of course, you don’t want to open the windows if the temperatures are soaring outside. That will just bring the hot air in. However, if the temperatures are mild, open up those windows. Run your fan in the early mornings and late evenings to take advantage of the cooler outside temperatures.
*Close the damper on the fireplace if you have one. You don’t want the soot from the chimney to blow into the room once the fan gets going.
*Ensure the fan is properly installed with an adequate exhaust. Your West Palm Beach electrician will take care of all of this for you.
*Ensure the vents to the attic are open and unobstructed. You don’t want the fan running with nowhere to push the air. This is something you can have checked and verified by your electrician. West Palm Beach homeowners won’t have to worry about all of the specific details when they hire a trained professional to take care of the installation.
