According to a national study, Americans spend over $22 billion dollars a year to cool their house using air conditioning! According to one of the largest utility companies in California, at current rates your central air conditioner may use 15,000 watts (15 kilowatts) of electricity per hour, costing up to $4.20 per hour to run.
Compare the savings when using a Whole House Fan to cool your house. Depending on the model, the cost to operate a ComfortCool whole house fan is between $0.02 and $0.07 per hour; saving homeowners hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year off their electric bills. A whole house fan rebate may also be available through your local utility company allowing you to save even more money.
If you think the price you pay for electricity is going down, think again! California’s new mandate to have 33 percent of its electricity generated from renewable resources will, for better or worse, translate into higher utility rates for all Californians. Over the next several years, electricity rates are expected to increase 40 to 50 percent. Luckily, Southern Californians can adapt by taking advantage of the region’s unique climate, making it work for them via ingeniously modernized energy efficient Comfort Cool whole house fan technology to reduce their reliance on air conditioning during hot weather.
Using a ComfortCool Fan is one of the most cost effective energy saving solutions for your house. The best use of a whole house fan is to turn off the air conditioner and turn on your fan in the early morning, evening or at night when the temperature outside is colder than inside your house. The whole house fan will then do the job of cooling your home at a significant savings in your energy bill.
