    We just bought a home in New Brunswick Canada and we are trying to find out what the Aston Atic 2000 Box is on the wall. It looks like a thermostat but says humidity percentages. We are very humid out here and have a dehumidifier going in the finished basement and would like to know if this unit is a humidifier or dehumidifier.

      Bob, you need to schedule a 15-Minute call with me. There's simply too much to talk about and type.

    We have a 1 1/2 story house. Half the house has vaulted ceilings, the other half is a two story house. The downstairs has a separate a/c unit from the upstairs. I'd like to install a whole house fan upstairs. Only one upstairs room is used as a bedroom. I have two concerns: First, is the noise a whole house fan makes uncomfortable for sleeping? Second, Is there any reason I can't install it in the ceiling of the adjacent upstairs room? If I did this, would it detract from the cooling of the bedroom, which would defeat the purpose?

      Charles, your question requires lots of typing, plus I have some questions for you so I can give you the correct answer(s). I only do pithy answers here in the comment section. If you want to protect the investment you have in your house and not waste time or money *hoping* you make the right decision, you should talk to me on the phone for just 15 minutes. It'll be the best investment you've ever made in your home!

    I would like to install a whole house exhaust fan to remove the hot summer air from my upstairs, that has cathedral ceilings. Unfortunately, my roof has extremely negligible attic space above the cathedral ceilings. Can I just exhaust the whole house fan air to the outside through a fan panel cut very high on the wall, instead of venting through the attic ?

      There's a great tool for this. It's called Bing.com. Try it!

    I have an attic fan blowing air out the gable end. And the other gable is open, and I have a ridge vent, but I seriously question the air flow through it. Both gable ends are heavily screened and louvered, so air flow is somewhat restricted. I wanted to install a fan at the other gable end blowing cool air INTO the attic. Are attic fans designed to be installed in this manner? If not all, are any so designed?
