What is your opinion about members promoting products here?

Hello,

I am a whole house fan and attic ventilation expert in Temecula CA. I started studying whole house fans in 2008 when my wife, Darlene, and I moved from Manhattan Beach. I would really like to share my knowledge with all of you but I want to be sure I don't antagonize you with more commercialization than you want. Please let me know your opinion and if you can, send me some examples of acceptable blogs and unacceptable ones.

Hi Kurt,

I can offer an opinion, but have no authority to approve or disapprove.  IMO, when discussing a topic related to this industry, having a business owner offer their expertise should be fine.  By disclosing your relationship we can all judge for ourselves what is fact and what is sales pitch.  Sales pitches are sometimes less than factual.  I get the impression you are excited about your product and are willing to share your knowledge and go from there.

Now, with that out of the way, powered attic ventilation and whole house fans have some inherent issues.  I look forward to hearing your thoughts on CAZ depressurization, and increased house to attic energy loss.

The picture you posted includes the mention of variable speed, what are you monitoring to match the speed to?

And welcome to the forum,

Bud
