This fan works very well and is an easy ten minute install.
It could be loud to me because the attic is directly on top of my bedroom where the fan is, but then again I hear it in the hallway and in the kitchen.

Cools the attic, moves a lot of air quickly, easy to install.

First of all, if you are skeptical of the merits of installing an attic fan let me tell you that you such a unit will make a noticeable difference on the comfort levels of your home on warm and hot days. By keeping your attic cooler, you prevent trapped attic heat (which can easily reach 150°F) from soaking down into your living spaces, making your house cooler and easier to cool (AC doesn't have to work as hard) as a result.

Now onto the review: this is a very powerful fan! I installed on a piece a plywood with a circular cutout to be sure that my gable vent was thoroughly sealed from air leakage. This little bit of extra work also made it easier to drag into position in my cramped attic and mount to the wall, as the plywood prevented the unit from settling in between joists in the attics unfinished floor.

It was a sunny day when I installed, so the attic was heating up fast. Sweat was pouring off me. Once powered up, however, the rush of air felt chilly and it was only a matter of minutes until the attic temps dropped to the point that I felt like I was sitting outside with a nice breeze, not in a cramped, hot, dusty attic.

If you are faced with the option, get a unit with a thermostatic switch. You'd be surprised by how often you can forget about turning the unit on or off, and the whole point of the unit is to take care of attic heat BEFORE it becomes a problem. The thermostatic switch takes the work out, as it makes the unit come on at a specified temperature and switches it off once the attic is 10 degrees cooler than that temp. I highly suggest wiring for two switches: a master on/off switch and a thermostat override switch. It is a bit more work, but it can give you finer control over operation. It also allows you to test the working of the unit if need be.

I cutout a piece of plywood to mount the fan onto last Thursday night. I put some cheap construction glue around the round sheet metal to keep it in place and quiet any vibrations. The balance on the fan was good right out of the box. Next morning I headed up into my attic. Decided to screw the plywood to the 2x4s just in case I might have to remove it later. That all worked out fine. Hooked the electric up to a bathroom switch that wasn't connected to anything.
Called my wife, she turned the switch on and there was an immediate pinging noise. Turns out one of the screws that hold the brackets to the round enclosure was too long and it hit one of the fan blades. I just loosened it up a bit and then all was fine. There is about 1/4" clearance from the blades to the metal housing, but the bracket screws also stick out about the same distance directly towards the blades. I set the thermostat to about 105 degrees and was done by 9AM.

One thing I noticed, is my gable vent is not very big and the fixed louvers are way too restrictive for the fan. I was surprised to feel air coming back out the back of the fan. The next day I pried up the top louver to let a little more air through. This helped, I might have to replace the vent with the auto shutter they sell with it if it fits.

Other than that, it is very hard to hear the fan from inside the house. Outside the air blows down to the ground pretty forcibly. I worked for a fan company for 17 years,so I know airflow and this baby needs a bigger vent area. My fixed vent is 12" X 15". I estimate you should have at least a 16 X 16 inch opening to get full airflow.

Installation of the fan was a breeze...Took about 2 hrs, mostly due to getting the plywood cut, installed, and weather sealed with the attic vent opening. Installation of the fan itself took about 15 minutes. The fan is a bit noisy - a constant hum - as I can hear it slightly from the 1st floor. It's not entirely annoying, would consider it as tolerable white noise. The sound is a louder in the bedroom below the attic area where the fan is mounted. Again, louder but it usually shuts off by 8pm with the current temp setting so I don't hear it when we're sleeping.

I have set the fan to turn on when temps reach about 105 in the attic. Ever since the fan has been installed, the temp upstairs now hovers around 81-83 on extremely hot days (102+) here in Santa Clarita, CA. Mind you the temp use to hover around 87-88 degrees upstairs without the fan. Overall, it has been helpful in keeping the house cooler. I am pleased with the results.

I bought this item to replace a roof vent fan that stopped working. I didn't want to hire a roofer to install a new roof vent fan, and I didn't want to have to get on the steep roof myself. I was able to remove the old fan assembly with a Dremel tool (leaving the old dome cover in place) and mount this fan inside my attic over the existing hole. It just fit between the roof joists and butted up cleanly with the old hole. This fan has a larger diameter than the fan it replaced and should move more air. Although there is a slightly audible hum in some upstairs rooms when it is running, it is surprisingly quiet. My only gripe is that the packaging isn't sufficient to protect the fan housing which was no longer perfectly circular when it arrived. There was enough clearance between the fan blades and the housing so that this wasn't an issue, but if the box had been abused during shipping, I doubt that the fan would have arrived usable condition. I have only had this fan installed for a few weeks, so I can't speak to its durability, but it it working great so far and seems to move a good deal of air. If you're' going to do this sort of installation in a low clearance attic, make sure that you mount some chicken wire over the fan intake so you don't receive a permanent haircut.
