Question DetailsAsked on 7/22/2013

How much does it cost to have a whole house fan installed

I have a 2200 sqft 2-story house with an open entry, living room and kitchen with 16 ft ceilings. I would like an attic fan/whole house fan installed in the hallway upstairs to create more air circulation and cut down on cooling costs.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

With 16 foot ceiling, you probably need a whole-floor if not whole-house fan system so there are several distribution points - one is not likely to effect more than about 10-15 lineal feet of hall.

The attic heat should be handled seperately - either by ridge venting if you don't have that already, or forced ventilation if you do and it is still too hot.

You need an evaluation by a qualified HVAC contractor (about $150-200), then whatever is needed to solve your problem.

Probably about $250-500 for attic fan, ridge venting (assuming shingle roof) about $6-10/LF, large multi-room vaulted ceiling ventilation could run from $500-1500 range, assuming attic is accessible for running duct.
