Lowes has a new whole house fan. The brand is "Whisper Aire". It uses
two high velocity muffin type fans instead of one big fan. Anybody
installed one of these units in there house yet. Looking for feedback
before I buy one.
I installed this type of fan about three years ago and still works fine.
It's a lot quieter and can be used continuously rather than just to blow out
the house since it's relatively quiet. The main reason I bought it at first
was the insulation feature when not in use during the winter. On the older
style the only thing between you and the attic are the louvers and all your
heat will escape. It was real easy to install and drops in between the
joists. You keep the remote by your bed so at night you just open your
window and have a nice breeze.
Only bad thing compared to the older style it will take a bit longer to
clear out the hot air when you get home in the evening but not a big deal.
This is the only type of fan I will ever install again.

Thanx for the advice. The main reason I was interested in this
unit was that it was suppose to be quiet compared to a conventional
wholehouse fan. Plus the fact that the lid on top of the fan motors
