I've put in three whole house fans over the years. I installed this one a few days ago and am very pleased. I deviated from the instructions in two ways to reduce noise. First, I never follow the advice to put the fan in the middle of the house. I put it as far away from the master bedroom (no children) and around as many corners as possible. In this case, after finding I had an unusually tight-fitting garage door I put it in the ceiling of the garage. My door fits so tightly I can see no light around any edge, so the fan will produce a vacuum in the garage and pull through the door to the house if blocked open. That put it even farther from the MBR and around more corners than anywhere else in the house. Second, I stapled dark gray foam pipe insulation, the kind available in 6' lengths at HD or Lowe's, around the bottom and outside edge of the wooden fan frame. I cut one of the lengths of 1" insulation in half lengthwise and wrapped it over the bottom and up onto the side, maybe an inch, all around the base of the fan's frame. That prevented direct contact between the fan's box frame and any ceiling joist. I installed lumber between the joists under the frame and the fan sits on that (plus the teeny normal contact point on the center joist). I did not bolt the fan down (noise), but just put 1x4 lumber around the edge to keep it from going sideways. The 1x4 touched the foam also, on the sides. Since the fans pulls itself down as it pushes air up, floating the fan within the confines of the 1x4s around the edges holds it place nicely. With a separate 12-hour timer I can go to be with it running and it shuts off after things cool off. The fan is quiet enough that you can talk in a normal voice in the garage while it is running on high speed.Read more ›

I can hardly believe how effective this fan is. Our home is not an open floor-plan, so we used to struggle with getting airflow in different rooms. This whole house fan creates a nice breeze throughout the entire house (1800 sq ft). I installed this in the center hallway, and I can feel the air drafting through the furthest windows. Since you do not need to cut through ceiling joists, I was able to easily install this by myself. The most difficult part was ensuring that everything was centered before cutting through the sheetrock. I also wired this to a switch and left it on the high setting instead of using the pull chain. I work very slowly and methodically so it took me 6 hours to install, but an experienced handyman could do this in half the time. Throw away your window fans and invest in a whole house fan. You will be so happy that you did.

This fan runs great and I think its quieter then the box fan that I used to have in my front window. Its also allot cheaper then the 3 or 4 fans that we had running 24hours a day to try and keep the house cool. The whole house fan does a better job hands down then 3 or 4 fans running around the house. At night when my house would get very hot I would have a very hard time trying to get the air out and the cool air in. With the whole house fan I run it for for 10-15min and I got cool air inside. This fan works great when its hot outside like around 85 degrees or so, when you run the fan the windchill makes it feel allot cooler then it really is. Thats another thing to think about, around the house it just feels like a nice cool breeze like your outside under a shaded tree with a nice comfortable breeze. Another bounus to think about is that the fan blows air into the attic and attic air gets forced out so you get a normal outside temp inside the attic which helps keep it cool, allot of heat gets transfered to the living space when it gets super hot in the attic, with whole house fan this is not the case. This fan pulls air in so well that any window you open creates a nice breeze to form and anywhere around that room or window it feels great.

Now for my personal notes and experiance with this product.

I'm going to mention this first because I think its very important -

The fan requires allot of attic ventilation to work well, I have an older house with only 2 small gable vents. This was not enough I needed allot more, I installed several large vents onto my roof so now my fan works great but....

After many years of wanting an attic fan in my "new" home I finally bought and had this fan installed. The fan works great and is very quiet except the noise of the fan blades circulating the air - zero or very little motor noise.

Only two complaints.

1. The sheet metal opening at the top of the fan had 4 random dents in it. If you look at the picture, the dents were on the raised rim that circles the top of the fan blade. The installers were wondering if I should send it back because it may have been knocked around in transit. I told them to test the fan motor and continue with the install if it worked since the dents were pretty much cosmetic and only visible from up in the attic when installed.

2. My other complaint is the cheap louvers/shutters, while they work well (open and close) with the fan being on or off, are very flimsy and make random rattling noise when the fan is on. This prevents me from turning the fan on at night on the timer and falling asleep - I am a very light sleeper. I can sleep with the steady hum of the fan running but the random rattling comes and goes which drives me nuts as I try to sleep. Fortunately, the way I mostly will use the fan is to turn in on an hour or two before bed to cool the upstairs and then turn it off and go to bed.

I plan to look around and if I can find quality louvers that exactly fit this fan I'll buy and switch out in a NY minute.
