You know, it’s not all the time that it gets ridiculously sizzling around my space of the country, the weather is usually fair, if not typically chilly, however it’s rarely sizzling enough to justify running anything more powerful than a window-mounted a/c unit. Because of this, I’ve been cautiously considering my chances for a cooling system, as the house I’m moving into has zero besides ceiling fans in each room… If I still lived in the South, that would be unreasonable! Here however, it’s perfectly cool most of the time, then so the house I’m moving into has a gas furnace as the heating unit, which is great for when it gets really cold, however, that gas furnace can be overpowering, as the house isn’t really big. For this reason, I’m often having to open windows around the house just to let some of the heat out, plus that can be a pretty large burden on myself and others as far as energy costs go, then rather than consistently trying to remember which windows are open and where. I’ve made the choice to instead invest in a whole-house fan. These are designed to install directly into the attic of a home, plus task by abruptly pressurizing the entire living area, forcing much of the heat out plus into the outdoors, doing this also requires a few windows to be open as close to the ground as could be, as the low pressure outside will try to penetrate the house plus balance everything out. That low pressure is chilly air, so you have to be careful about how long you run the whole-house fan, however otherwise, it will be just as chilly as it was when you first used the gas furnace, plus then you’re back at the start!
