Who we are: Since 1976, Atticfan.com has installed Whole House and Attic Fans in the Denver , Colorado Metro area and along the entire Front Range, from Ft. Collins in the north to Pueblo in the south.
We are now one of the few companies in the entire country that specializes only in attic fans and probably have more experience and expertise about whole house attic fans than any other residential installation company.
We have developed and continue to refine many of the best whole house fan installation techniques. Thousands of jobs have taught us how to choose and install the products that guarantee results and provide satisfaction for years to come.
No one in Colorado can match our combination of experience, quality, skill and low cost. Few companies anywhere have our depth of experience or commitment to quality.
Our Company Mission: Our guarantee to you: we will do whatever it takes to provide the lowest cost, highest quality installations and best customer experience possible.
About this site: Our aim is to provide the best and most accurate information available about attic fans. See our "website directory" section just a few paragraphs below. It will detail the information available on the entire site.
How our fans work:
1. They create a breeze through the open windows and doors. We try to size the fans so that they blow out the entire volume of air in the house in about 3 minutes.
2. They blow out the hot air from inside the house, especially upstairs.
3. They blow out the very hot air trapped in the attic.
By doing this, they are able to cool down the entire home within minutes.
They can reduce the heat load on air conditioning systems and evaporative coolers so that the cost of cooling is substantially reduced and performance improved.
In the mornings any windows you open will bring in cool, pleasant air. Later, during the day, if you have a basement, you can open the basement windows to pull in the cool air upstairs. If you don't have a basement, you can water the grass or shrubs outside a window and open that window to pull in cooler air.
At night you can open any windows, especially those upstairs, and pull in the cooler evening air to displace the very warm air upstairs. You can walk into a cool bedroom and sleep comfortably at night.
The whole house fan will also blow out the very hot air inside the attic and reduce the heat load onto the rooms below.
And you can achieve all this for just pennies a day.
Benefits to the homeowner:
By installing and operating the fan properly you can often eliminate the need for air conditioning and almost always substantially reduce the cost of cooling your house. For the very first time, your entire house can be cool and comfortable for a very small operating cost: less than 25¢ a day!
A good whole house fan is quiet, inexpensive to operate, and will last over 30 years.
Unlike swamp (evaporative) coolers, they do not put mold in the air and require no maintenance. Unlike air conditioning, these units are amazingly inexpensive to operate. Alone they help to reduce the heat load on the entire house.
If you already have air conditioning or an evaporative cooler the fans work wonderfully well together, enabling these systems to cool the upper levels of a house quickly, and much more effectively, and at a lower total cost as well.
These fans will pay for themselves in the first few years and make your home much more comfortable and enjoyable while saving substantial amounts of energy over air conditioning alone. They will also ease the wear and tear on your other systems by pre-cooling the house.
Being able to control the air in your home will transform it from a hotbox to a comfortable and affordable retreat in the summer. In addition, the fans can be used year round to remove, odors, staleness and pollution from the home.
Environmental concerns: Because these fans use very small motors, their energy consumption is minimal and environmental impact is greatly reduced compared to the much larger amount of energy needed for air conditioning.
There is no perfect cooling system. Both air conditioning and evaporative coolers have their drawbacks. A whole house fan will do its job reliably and effectively longer than most any other appliance you will ever purchase. Even on those days that the electric company switches off the power to your air conditioner, you will still be able to experience some relief.
