Why purchase a Cool Attic Whole House Fan from USFanco? All Cool Attic Whole House Fans are manufactured in Mineral Wells, Texas. Cool Attic has been making home cooling fans since 1948 and offers both traditional and more modern Whole House Fans.
Whole House Fan selection takes in a number of factors. First and foremost is the size of the space you want to cool. As a rule of thumb, use 1 CFM for every square foot of the room your are trying to cool.
The second biggest factor is if you are replacing an existing unit or you are installing a whole house fan for the first time. For replacement whole house fans, a traditional style may best fit the existing opening for your fan. For a new installation, a ducted style whole house fan may be best suited for your application.

Pick the Perfect Cooling Solution for You
Modern Whole House Fans
Best for applications when installing an attic fan for the first time, or when you want to reduce noise.
Modern Whole House Fans utilize a plenum box, duct and axial fan construction that is designed for easier installation as well as noise reduction. The ease of installation comes from the smaller footprint of the plenum box. Often times, the project will not require the removal of a ceiling joist as the plenum box is sized to fit in-between standard joists.
Usually, the rule of thumb is to select a CFM that matches the size of the room that the Modern Whole House Fan will be cooling. Modern Whole House Fans are designed to have multiple installations in separate rooms. One advantage of this style of installation is that you can have fans controlling the airflow in individual rooms without opening a door. USFanco features the Maxx Air Modern Whole House Fan as its cost effective solution. These units are controlled by a simple wall switch or can be remote controlled with a remote control attached to the outlet. They are assembled in the USA and come with a 10 year warranty.
Maxx Air 2,700 CFM 2-Speed Modern Whole House Fan with Ceiling Grid
This modern Whole House Fan is comprised of an 18 in. diameter fan used for efficiently pulling in fresh air through open windows and removing hot, stale air from your home through the attic for a more comfortable and refreshing living environment.
Professionally tested by a 3rd Party- 2,700 CFM
This Entire unit is UL 507 Certified
Unlike a standard whole house fan, our ducted models feature a damper box that is sealed with R5 insulation to prevent heat transfer back into your home, and a 12 ft. duct for maximum ventilation performance and noise reduction. The fan head mounts to an attic rafter with the included hanging bracket for an easier, faster install than a traditional whole house fan. It's a cost-effective solution to improving your indoor air quality while relieving strain on your air conditioning equipment.
Traditional Whole House Fans
Best for jobs when you are replacing an existing whole house fan.
Often times, if a homeowner is simply replacing an existing attic fan, the Traditional Style Whole House Fan is the best choice. The size of these fans usually requires installation that requires cutting a portion of the ceiling joist, which sometimes extends installation time. USFanco also offers replacement motors and blades for older Whole House Fan models.
USFanco offers the Cool Attic Traditional Whole House Fan in both Direct Drive and Belt Drive models, and in multiple diameters of fan blades. The larger the fan blade, the larger the CFM of the fan.
Usually, the rule of thumb for Traditional Whole House Fans is to select a CFM that matches the space of the room that the Modern Whole House Fan will be cooling. For instance, if the space to cool is 2,000 square feet, choose a model that is above 2,000 CFM. Traditional Whole House Fans were designed to be placed in a central location in a house, such as a central hallway. With much higher CFM models available, they can cool multiple rooms at a time.
