Don’t sweat it out in a hot house

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: ImproveTips

With its gentle tradewinds, mild temperatures and sunny skies, much has been written on Hawaii’s idyllic climate. Yet for local homeowners, the long summer months mean that idyllic weather is a distant memory while the struggle to keep cool is a daily reality.

Laurie Brooks of Honolulu is an IT professional. Summer weather had her searching for a way to cool her home. “Our vaulted ceilings held heat upstairs and made sleeping unbearable,” she said. “The recent muggy weather urged us to finally find a better solution.”

Lauire found her answer with a QuietCool from Island Cooling. This system ventilates a home by drawing the heat out of the house and pulling in air from any open window or door. Installed in the attic, QuietCool uses 10 percent of the energy of A/C and keeps fresh air flowing through the home.

Island Cooling conducted a site inspection for Laurie’s home. “They helped us configure the right systems for each room and what a difference it makes,” Brooks said. “They even helped us apply for a rebate from Hawaii Energy. ”

“If it’s warmer in your house than outside,” Shawn McMillan says, “QuietCool whole house fans from Island Cooling are the way to go.” Shawn, a homeowner from the Windward Oahu found Island Cooling at the annual summer remodeling expo.

“Where we live our house is oriented parallel to the trade winds. It’s easily 10 degrees warmer in the house then outside,” he said. Shawn decided to have two QuietCool systems installed, which only took two hours. “The evening after installation we were pulling in cool air and our house temp dropped fast. It’s a great product and Island Cooling offers outstanding customer service.” MacMillian recommends calling Island Cooling soon. “Don’t hesitate and put up with a hot house.”

Island Cooling is Hawaii’s distributor for QuietCool whole house fans systems. Visit them at the BIA Big Summer Home Building & Remodeling Show Aug. 9-11 at the Blaisdell Center. For more information, visit IslandCooling.com, or call 672-2300.
