First Rooftop Whole House Fan for Homes without Attics

Eichler was one of the most famous Mid Century Modern home builders in the 50s and 60s. His homes are all over California. Owners of his designs have not had a whole house fan to help cool their homes until now.

What is your opinion about members promoting products here?

Hello,

I am a whole house fan and attic ventilation expert in Temecula CA. I started studying whole house fans in 2008 when my wife, Darlene, and I moved from Manhattan Beach.

Please let me know your opinion and if you can, send me some examples of acceptable blogs and unacceptable ones.
