‘QuietCool’ adds ventilation, helps beat the heat
Homeowner Jason of Manoa said, “Quiet-Cool works for my home rain or shine.
“When it’s hot, I run it to keep cool. When it’s humid, I turn it on to increase air flow.”
When it comes to home cooling, windward, mauka and cooler areas of our islands don’t always get a lot of attention, but with this year’s persistent rain, folks in normally cooler areas are looking for a solution that keeps their home more comfortable during those times as well.
“I used to run a humidifier day and night,” shared Ashley of Moanalua Gardens. “We constantly had to be taking water out of the system, plus the dehumidifier used so much electricity. We called a mold remediation specialist and they recommended Island Cooling’s QuietCool system. Rather than fight the humidity, it helps that we are working with our home’s environmental surroundings now.”
Ivan Whitworth, co-owner of Island Cooling, explained that many Hawaii homes are designed to be naturally ventilated. “In the era before air-conditioning, homes were often designed to take advantage of cooling breezes and natural materials to ward off the sun’s heat.”
He continued, “QuietCool provides additional ventilation and cooling in a way that’s both efficient and complementary to keeping the home open.”
The QuietCool system is installed in the attic of the home with an intake on the ceiling. Turning the system on draws air up and out of the home while pulling cooler air in through open windows. Since it’s not refrigerating the air, the system is highly energy efficient as well, using only 20 percent of the power of an A/C system.
In addition to cooling the home, the fresh air has other benefits too, said Al Whitworth, Ivan’s brother and co-owner of Island Cooling. “QuietCool is great for taking additional humidity out of the home, plus it clears up cooking smells and pet odors, too.”
Moanalua resident Ashley agreed. “More airflow has improved my home. I’m ready for summer heat and rainy days too!”
