Features & Benefits
Exceptional Power, Extremely Energy Efficient!

The Centric Air 3.4 is a high quality, very powerful and ultra quiet alternative cooling solution. It uses a German engineered industrial grade fan motor that can provide 30% more power while using 1/3 less energy as compared to other industry standard fans.

Extreme Engineering - Built To Last, Extremely Low Noise

These high-end industrial grade motors are built to last and are rated for approximately 40,000 hours of operation. The noise level is also really something to hear – or, actually not hear. At a very quiet 52 dBA on high, the 3.4 is whisper quiet. Every aspect of this system is built to a rigorous specification suitable to demanding industrial applications and is completely maintenance free.

Two Speed Wireless Remote Control with Timer

The optional two speed remote control with timer is our most versatile control and features an LED display and 5 Timer Functions 1, 2, 4, 8 hours or ON. On high speed the system operates at a powerful 3011 CFM. Set to low speed the system provides a comfortable flow of air while maintaining a whisper quiet noise level.

Heavy-duty R-5 Energy Star 1" Poly Foam Maintenance Free Damper

A fundamental problem with traditional whole house fans was air leakage between the attic and living spaces. This could result in dirty attic air entering your home. The 3.4 takes care of this problem with an industrial-quality damper that is thermally insulated and maintenance free. Silicone seals are provided to ensure sealing longevity; they also provide phenomenal resistance to weathering and changes in temperature. Silicone seals have an approximate service life of 30 years and remain flexible down to -40 degrees F/C.

Low Profile - High Air Flow Register

The Centric Air 3.4 comes with a high air flow register that reduces air movement noise through the register. These high-performance grills look great too, so your system looks as inconspicuous as it sounds.

Maintenance-Free Operation

The German-engineered sealed motor and damper never requires lubrication or maintenance of any type.

    Very Pleased with my Centric Air

    Posted by Barry K on 17th Aug 2019

    I am very pleased with my CentricAir whole house fan. The unit is quiet and does an excellent job of displacing the heat in my home with fresh cool air from outside.

    Colorado Dream Fan

    Posted by Bart L on 14th Aug 2019

    We live in Colorado were the days are hot and the nights are cool. The Centric Air works perfect for our climate. Turn on the fan at 6-7 PM to blowout the hot air in the attic and run it all night on low and bring in that cool fresh Colorado air. We also bought the R-50 power damper to prevent cold air in the winter from coming back into the house. 5 Stars. Highly recommend.

    Great fan for my home in Hawaii

    Posted by Liam M on 27th Jul 2019

    Installed this fan in our 80's style home in Hawaii, no insulation and open window design. Works GREAT, cools the house down in no time. Previously after a long hot day it would take all night to cool the house down, now the air circulates so well its a matter of 20 minutes and the house is cool. Windows are always open in our place anyway and this creates a breeze no matter if its Kona winds or not. So quiet, can't really hear the fan run. Worked with Mike to have it shipped to Hawaii and very happy.

    Great Product 5 Stars

    Posted by Jeff L on 30th Jun 2019

    Just wanted to thank you for your great product! I reside in Utah and love the R10 cold weather damper and the 2-speed remote control with timer. The hot desert temperatures we experience have been much more bearable with this excellent whole house fan system. It is working great, is very quiet, and really draws the air through my home. Your DIY instructions were very helpful. The installation was straight forward and went very well. Thanks

    Centric Air 3.4 Amazing

    Cools the house and LOWERS my Electric bill!!

    Posted by Louis M on 27th May 2019

    I bought this unit and I can’t stop raving about it. I preferred to get fresh air instead of turning AC unit and recycling the air inside the house. Of course this unit only works if the air outside the house is cooler than the air inside. I turn on my Centric Air fan and crack two windows on opposite side of the house to evacuate all the hot air from house and let the cooler fresh air from outside. That eliminates turning on the ac unit hence having a lower electrical bill.

    Extremely Quiet & Super Powerful! Five Stars!!

    Posted by Tony L on 12th May 2019

    Great quality and craftsmanship, easy to install, extremely quiet, and super powerful!

    We purchased this whole house fan to reduce our electricity bill and keep our 3,200 sq ft house cool at night. We turned it on for the very first time and it was SO quiet we didn't think it was on, but after seeing the dampers doors open and feeling the cool air come through our open windows, we were thrilled!

    It's been two months since we installed this unit and we are enjoying having a reduced electricity bill and cool/fresh night air. We open two windows (each on opposite sides of the house) and it keeps our house at a comfortable 68 degrees (which makes for a very restful sleep), while pushing all the hot air out of our attic, which makes a huge difference the next day when it's 90 degrees outside.

    There are two power settings - Low and High. We always use the low setting, which reduces the temperature of our home from 78 degrees to 68 degrees in a matter of 1-2 hours (when it's about 54 degrees outside).

    I highly recommend this product for anyone considering a whole house fan who lives in a warm climate like we do and enjoys the cool/fresh night air. Once you install one, you'll be asking yourself why you didn't do it sooner.

    Great Product been using for over 5 Years

    Posted by Jeff T on 11th Apr 2019

    Thought I'd add my comments. I had my 3.4 installed in July 2014 and we use it almost every night from April to November. The second story stays warm even with A/C going so as soon as the outside thermometer is 1 degree cooler than the inside, I kick on the whole house fan and the upstairs begins cooling immediately. 5 years is a pretty good endorsement for this product and I've told many friends about it. Great product.

    No Longer Dreading Summer

    Posted by Tim M on 2nd Apr 2019

    I have been wanting to install a whole house fan for years but for some reason (read procrastination) just never got around to it. Happy to say I finally pulled the trigger. I had many questions and Mike was very patient and answered all. Had it installed and my only complaint now is that it is raining so I can't put my new toy to the test. I can tell you that the unit is much quieter then I expected. I am no longer dreading summer! Thanks Mike
