Re: House Fan
An air conditioner cools and dehumidifies.
A whole house fan can be used to cool in moderate weather it dose not dehumidify unless the outside air that is being drawn in is dry. The best use of a whole house fan is to open the windows on the lower floor and run the fan at night when the outside temp is lowest then turn off the fan and close the windows in the morning. For the system to be beneficial it is necessary to have the house fairly well sealed and insulated.
