Service Testimonials

We had a very old whole house fan (WHF) which was very loud (sounded like a helicopter taking off) and vibrated the rooms around it.  We decided to replace it and called three company’s in the South Bay.

We chose Bay Area WHF because they were very professional, courteous, prompt and listened to our needs.  From the first phone call to in-house inspection to decision and finally installation Bay Area WHF team were outstanding to work with.

The WHF we chose was QuietCool 3400, Bay Area WHF was very competitive with their price.  What made us decide to go with Bay Area besides pricing was their professionalism and customer service.

Jacob and his team were outstanding during the installation process – they laid down protective cloth on the floor, Jacob reviewed with me what they were going to do and explained to me when there were any issues and asked my permission to proceed (at no additional cost).  Jacob reviewed the operation of my new WHF and when and how I should turn the fan on/off.

I have had no problems with my WHF and it worked great during out record breaking heat wave in the bay area.

I highly recommend Bay Area WHF!

Jacob at Bay Area Whole House Fan installed a whole house fan last spring and I have been very pleased. He did a great job and I am really glad he suggested that I look into whole house fans.  […] On hot days I run the fan through some or all of the night so that the house is very cool (high 60s) in the morning, so that it takes the house longer to heat up on a warm day.  It’s very efficient – basically the cost of running a fan; instead of the high cost of running the AC in the evening. I very rarely use my AC  now so I have saved a lot of money in the short time I have had it, and the air conditioning was never quite as effective since I was trying to cool down hot air, instead of just replacing the hot air with cooler air from the outside like the whole house fan does.   It’s also nice to have some fresh air moving through the house after those hot days when the all the windows are closed and the house feels pretty stuffy.  […] I highly recommend whole house fans, and Bay Area Whole House Fan did a great job with the installation.  Jacob was extremely easy to work with, gave me a price that he stuck to, finished the job when he said he would, and even checked back in with me 2 weeks later to see how it was going.

Jacob at Bay Area Whole House Fan installed a whole house fan for me just a few days ago.  I purchased the fan by myself, but realized I am not handy enough to get it installed by myself. Then I started to search in yelp to find qualified contractor/handyman who is able to install the fan for me. I sent quite a few quotes through yelp, and finally Bay Area Whole House Fan came at the top, because Jacob’s reply was the most welcome and positive to me. I made an appointment with Jacob for the estimation at 6PM a few days later, because I cannot easily get off from the work earlier. Jacob was nice to accommodate my time schedule, and showed up exactly at around 6PM. During the process, Jacob checked the whole house fan to make sure it’s in good shape for the installation. He also checked my attic to have enough venting area to install the fan, and checked with me on the electrical circuit. He further checked my furnace installation to make sure the WHF does not interfere with the furnace in a negative way. In the end, he gave me a reasonable quote which I was willing to accept. […] I would say if it’s not the service from Jacob, the installation could not be completed at the scheduled date. I am really happy to choose Bay Area Whole House Fan at the beginning. I will certainly ask for their service again if I need to installation other fans, and I’ll definitely recommend Jacob to my friends without any hesitate.

We had a whole house fan installed recently by Bay Area WHF, Inc. We love the fan. It really is amazing. What is more amazing is the job that Tawny and Jacob of Bay Area WHF did. They responded to emails and phone calls quickly. When Jacob said he would be at our house at a particular time for the installation, he was right on time. The area where the installed the fan was cleaner than it was before the fan was installed. They love their products and it shows. If you don’t want to suffer through another summer in a hot house, I highly recommend using Bay Area WHF.

We had a wonderful experience with the Bay Area Whole House Fan company! We had a consultation appointment at 11am and they were here at that exact time! They were also able to give a quick and thorough assessment of our current house fan and determine what was needed to keep it running smoothly. They were then able to get the necessary parts needed and they came back the same day to finish the job! We also appreciated how respectful they were I regards to noise since we had our toddler and 2 week old baby down for naps! We would definitely recommend this company!

This is my first house fan and it was a great experience working with Bay Area Whole House Fans. From the scheduling, estimate and install, they were pleasant and professional. The technicians cleaned up after the install and left the home clean.

This house fan has now taken over as the unit to cool my house at night time. You get a nice breeze from the windows and the noise level is very low; softer than a standing fan.

If you’re hesitant on getting one, give them a call. You won’t be disappointed.
