comment What should I look for in a Whole House Fan
To expand a bit, there are two kinds of whole-house fans. There are the big ones with, say, an 18" fan. They are loud, but move a ton of air. They are typically not insulated. Fine for areas without much of a heating season. The second type typically use big computer-style fans, have automated louvers, and are insulated. They are good choices if you heat during winter.

comment How do I correctly install ceramic floor tile?
A few comments... First off, you may or may not need plywood on top the subfloor; it depends on the support of the subfloor, how much deflection in the floor, what size tile, whether you are using an isolation membrane, etc. Second, the screws for cement board are definitely made of metal, though they are coated. Third, there are other types of backer board other than cement board.
