Whole-House Fan for Converted Barn
I’m looking to vent my home in the evenings.
I live in a converted barn. The main floor is completely open. Up to a 25 feet to the ridge beam. The bedrooms upstairs are at the gable ends, and the stairs come up center to a catwalk between the bedrooms. There’s no attic space.
I designed far too much glass and not enough overhangs or trees. It gets over 80 degrees and humid from Mid-July through August. 🙁
I’ve called whole-house-fan manufacturers, and none I’ve found so far are designed for no-attic applications.
My roof is shingle, OSB, 12″ studs filled with closed cell foam and then drywall to the living space.
I might go for minisplits later.
