Whole House Fans - Pricing and Installation Cost Notes

Homewyse cost estimates are approximate ranges for basic work in typical conditions. The estimates should only be used for preliminary planning. Homewyse estimates are NOT substitutes for quotes from qualified vendors. Homewyse strongly recommends that you contact reputable professionals for an accurate assessment of work required and costs for your project - before making any decisions or commitments.

  • The homewyse cost estimates include all typical costs for removal and disposal of existing unit, hardware and components needed to connect, secure and properly operate and service the whole house fan.
  • The homewyse Whole House Fan cost estimates do not include costs for new installation of, repairs to, or relocation of existing ducting, electrical connection, fuel supply line and exhaust vent systems. Costs associated with permit acquisition and sign off are not included.
  • Higher priced Whole House Fans may include features/attributes that include higher capacity, multiple speed operation, louvered grille and seasonal louver cover.
  • Whole House Fan installation costs are commonly quoted from a standard rate and can be estimated/quoted by the service professional after measurement and visual inspection at the job site.
  • Energy saving Whole House Fans may qualify for cash rebates from local utility companies and/or federal tax credits. Rebates and tax credits vary widely, so compare carefully before buying.
  • The variation in installation costs for complex configurations (non-rectangular shape, many corners, multiple levels, etc.) can be considerable. For accurate cost estimates, collect detailed bids from several qualified professionals.
  • Reduce total project cost by having multiple vendors bid on the same, detailed work specification of your Whole House Fan project.
  • Save on installation costs by combining similar jobs and by being willing to have your project completed during low demand periods for the vendor/installer.
