Attic Fans

Attic fans, or whole-home fans, are installed in the ceiling of your attic to create ventilation. An attic fan allows the hot and humid air residing at the top of your home to be released, cooling down the temperature of the rest of the home.


Types of Fans

Whole House Fan

Whole home fans pull air from open windows in the lower section of your home and release it through your attic ventilation. Perfect for moderate climates, whole-home fans can substitute an air conditioner to keep your energy costs low. If your home has central air, your air ducts could be used to assist your whole-home fan. Bill Howe offers free estimates to help you find the system that fits your needs.

Roof Mounted Attic Fans

Roof mounted attic fans are electric-powered, dome-shaped ventilation that are installed onto the top of your roof. This model uses a thermostat and a humidistat to control both the heat and humidity in your home. The dome-topped fan releases the hot, humid air from the attic while simultaneously drawing the cool, dry air from outside


Benefits of an Attic Fan

Increased Energy Efficiency

Attic fans use a fraction of the energy an air conditioner uses, saving you on your energy bill. Whether you use it by itself or in tandem with your air conditioner, an attic fan will help control the comfort levels of your home. In the unfortunate event that your air conditioner breaks down on a hot summer day, an attic fan will keep your home cool until a Bill Howe technician is able to assess and make the repairs.

Lower Home Temperatures

Due to hot air rising, attics are typically the warmest location in the home. Attic fans release the hot air from your attic, preventing trapped air from flowing into the lower living spaces. Older homes with heavy insulation will see increased benefit from attic fans by giving the hottest air a channel to be released.

Reduced Risk of Mold

The hot air trapped in attics contains high amounts of moisture. By releasing the humid air outdoors and drawing in cool, dry air you reduce the chance of mold from growing within the attic. Mold growth in attics will damage any belongings stored in there, and more noticeably the wooden support beams of your home.


For ultimate efficiency, make sure your attic insulation is as good as it possibly can be.




“My central air-conditioner stopped blasting the cold air. I noticed the outside compressor fan also stopped working. First, I called [company name], and the technician came out and took a look at the condenser told me that my compressor failed. I need to replace the entire air condition unit, which would cost me at least 8000 dollars for a new 3 U air-conditioner unit. Today, I called Bill Howes Family and Companies, Alvin Troyer, technician took a lot at the condenser and found a loose wire. He replaced the burnout component, and my air conditioner is working again. Elvin was friendly and very knowledgeable with his work.

Thank you for your honesty and friendly service. I highly recommend Bill Howe for their excellent service.”

“We were having trouble with our air conditioning and called on a Monday morning, were quickly scheduled for an appointment Tuesday afternoon. Chad R. was our serviceman and he was wonderful! Professional, polite, quick, informative, called on his way, wore his mask, and maintained social distance. Awesome. Thank you for your help Chad! Based on this visit, we would definitely recommend their services to a friend. 5/5!!”

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
