Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

I can hear the fan running but its not that noisy.
The blades hit one screw so I had to remove it and grind it down so the blade would not hit it.
Happy Customer
This fan works very well and is an easy ten minute 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.

Just finished installing today (4/6/14), before it became too hot to be in the attic this season. Took my time over the weekend, doing it right with the right components. A bit rough doing the balancing beam act multiple times to the opposite end of the house to the largest vent group, but it was the best spot to mount. Wired it up with the Master and Bypass switch options, dropping a double switch box down into my garage, which is well worth the extra time. Mounted fan shroud to some scrap 1/2" ply I had, using the Isolate-It dampening washers where the L-brackets met the plywood, plus used 7/16" x 1-1/4" weatherstrip foam around the plywood to seal and also dampen any vibration to the house. Sealed off the vent panel bays adjacent to the fan mount in a similar fashion, with some hardboard and weatherstrip foam. Tied into an existing circuit I had recently installed in the garage for shop lights, and some other outlets, so the power drop wasn't that bad. Turned the unit on, and it definitely is pushing a ton of air out the gable vent, as evidenced by the 'wooshing' sound. No odd hum or noticeable vibration in the house. Not bad on the decibels, but haven't heard it at night yet when all is quiet outside. Should keep the utility company from getting too far into my wallet this summer.

June 19, 2014 - fan has definitely reduced the AC run-time already this summer. Like today, it was around 95, and my AC only ran until maybe 8 pm tonight. Same for when it was up over 100 a couple weeks back. Prior to the fan, the AC would have run well into the night with all the heat from the attic baking the living space. Runs like a champ, and kicks off when outdoor temp reaches 85.

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.
