Installing a whole-house fan can save big money, both at the time of purchase and over the years, if you live in a cold or moderate climate. A whole-house fan will cost far less than an air conditioning system. You will also require far less energy to operate the fan, so you will also save on your electric bill for years to come. Whole-house fans are remarkably efficient in regions that do not experience extreme heat in summer. You will also see some often-overlooked savings from the fact that a fan does not require the regular servicing needed for an air conditioner. Finally, a whole-house fan will probably last twice as long as an air conditioning system.
