whole house fan possible

kenbo90June 14, 2012


I own a 2 story cape with 3 bedrooms and a bath upstairs.(2/3rds of the back half is dormer'd). Needless to say it's hot upstairs in the summer and I'm trying to avoid turning on the window ACs as much as possible. I'm thinking of installing a 'quiet cool' duct type unit in the 'attic'. I know there's not much space up there and I haven't cut out the ceiling yet to see what I'm working with. Has anyone had experience installing one of these units in a cape?
