Whole House Fan Questions
I love my Whole House Fan. In my region I don't need the A/C very much because of it.
Whole House Fans move a great deal of air so, yes, make sure you open at least a few windows before using. You definitely want some ventilation in the attic to move the air outside, so putting in a ridge vent will help. Maybe your soffit and gable vents will be enough.
If you have blown in insulation in your attic there are concerns the dust from that insulation could clog your soffit vents.
Get a model that is well insulated for the winter or make yourself a cap from pink foam board and lay some insulation over the foam cap. Add ceiling fans to as many rooms as you can also.
