Here’s an innovative home-cooling product

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: AppliancesDecorEnergyExterior

Running quietly in the attic of Kumu Vasconcello’s Hawaii Kai home is a breakthrough technology in energy-efficient home cooling. Unseen from the outside of the home, with no hole in the roof, the Whole House Fan quietly draws hot air out of the living space through a ceiling intake. The system cools both the home’s living space and attic at a fraction of the cost of air conditioning (A/C) systems.

“I run my Whole House Fan instead of my A/C and save an average of $100 per month,” said Kumu Vasconcellos of Hawaii Kai. “It’s a great way to cool my home!”

The popularity of this alternative cooling system is growing as homeowners discover how effective it is. Throughout Oahu, more than 400 homeowners have taken steps towards in-home comfort and lower electrical bills by having Whole House Fans installed.

I call it my stealth air conditioner,” said Cliff Baptista of Kapolei. “It draws cool air into my house in the evening and sucks out all the hot air.”

“Homeowners today are more aware of the need for energy efficiency and are actively looking for better ways to cool their homes,” said Ivan Whitworth of Island Cooling LLC. “The Whole House Fan is a perfect fit for our island lifestyle. Rather than having to close windows and doors and hiding out with chilled air, the Whole House Fan takes advantage of natural airflow and allows us to live a more open life.”

Founded in 2008 to bring energy-efficient cooling solutions to Hawaii, Island Cooling LLC is Honolulu’s distributor of Quiet Cool Whole House Fans. In addition to larger units for whole home cooling, the company also has bedroom-sized units for home offices and bedrooms.

“The Whole House Fan is designed to provide on-demand cooling,” said Al Whit-worth, a Certified Green Professional with Island Cooling. “You can use it just as you would a ceiling fan, but since it’s taking the heat out of a home, it’s a lot more effective.”

Ewa Beach resident Clayton Choi agreed. Clayton installed his fan in early 2012 and has been using it exclusively for cooling his home in the two years since.

“You gotta get one,” he said.
