Where do you install a whole house fan?

Lina's Response:


A whole house fan is a large, horizontally-mounted electric fan that should be installed into a hallway ceiling in the top floor of the house. When it is on, it pulls air in through the windows, and sends it into the attic, provided the attic has a decent number of exhaust vents. Look for either or a combination of three types of exhaust vents: soffit vents on the side, a ridge vents in the center of the roof peak, or side vents typically with a "shutter", and make sure they are not blocked.
