Great product!!! Proper install to avoid noise ans vibrations!So got this, did the install and works like a charm. Quiet and the thermostat works too. Other people complained about noise and vibrations, but I guess because it was not installed properly. Keep in mind the box contains only 4 screws to attach the brackets to the shroud, you'll need some additional stuff. So this is what I did:1. Got a 3/4 plywood scrap from a hardware store, 8 rubber grommets, 8 lag screws, 8 washers, 1 tube silicone.2. I've cut a round hole 15-1/4" in diameter (1/4" larger then the manufacturer suggests in order to apply the silicone to absorb vibrations).3. Attached the brackets to the shroud with provided screws.4. Attached the fan to the plywood: plywood - washer- rubber grommet-washer -lag screw. Do not overtight the lag screws(check the pictures).6. Applied silicone between the plywood and fan (reduces vibrations also increases efficiency).7. Ran the power cable through a switch inside the house so I can control when to shut it down in case I need to.Total additional cost ~$15.I'm giving it 4 stars because of the trip I had to take to the hardware store to buy all these. Wish the manufacture will include the screws for the plywood and the rubber grommets.Works nicely and it is really quiet.Highly recommended!4Good bang for the $$$Our fan had not worked since we moved in several years ago. Installation was simple. Ours is on a switch as well. I left it on the manufacturers recommendation of 90 degrees for the thermostat but may tweak up a bit if it seems to be running too much. Installation took about 30 minutes with my son helping as the gopher and light man. Seems quite powerful as I could feel the draw when he flipped the switch. I could also feel and smell the stale attic air from outside. Quite impressed so far. Should help the air conditioning. Now for another layer of insulation!5Works good but you need to buy a power cable too I finally installed this tiny gabble vent above my garage door. The hole wasn't all that big and the fan is much larger than the hole itself and there is a "T" bar of wood blocking the middle of it. So it's about 50% unblocked. Seems to be doing ok, it was a little shaky with only 2 mounts so I had to ghetto rig 2 sidemounts out of bendable sheet metal and bolted them to the edge of 2 mounts so I could extend all the way to the wood slat for support. Now it doesn't rattle around.A couple of cons. I had no idea that it didn't come with a power cord. I went To Lowe's and they were out, went to Home Depot and they were out, finally found it for $10 at Ace Hardware (you need a 3-prong with white, black and green wires). I guess that was my bad for not reading the fine print about a power source. However if you are wiring it to existing electrical or a switch I guess that's why it comes with nothing. Also one other con, when mounted flat to a surface the blades stick out a bit and rub the front surface. Due to this I had to pull the unit out a bit with the mounts to get it not to rub (this unfortunately made it wiggle and less stable/supported which is why I needed the last 2 mounting braces). Also make sure to test your unit before going through the hassle of mounting it. In shipping, the blades bent back and we're touching the inner motor support brackets which caused the blades to rub so I had to bend them outwards. Lastly it's a tad loud but being out in my garage I don't notice it much.For those snapping about the thermostat, mine seems to work fine. While installing it I twisted it to around 105 and it turned on and works well. For the time being we will see how long she lasts! 4Perfect! Exactly what I needed and expected Perfect! Exactly what I needed and expected. I did make a frame for it to facilitate mounting. No problems with install. I did replace the temperature setting box with a XXDoustat as I wanted the humidity function as well. It has been installed and is working as advertised. Very Happy with product so far. This winter will be the ultimate test. Price was very competitive when compared to the box store offerings. shipping and packaging was very good. 5read the instructions very carefully. overall this product is well built and sturdy, however there is one small detail that i overlooked, and I believe the company needs to resolve. I actually had to buy two of these things because I ruined the first one. The cover of the thermostat shows the very simple circuit with a wire nut connecting the switch into the circuit of the fan. In my rush to get things working I just grabbed two wires out of the box and connected them to power. I grabbed the wrong two, and shorted the switch, causing it to melt. Upon closer inspection I see that the label clearly states that you must wire the switch as shown in the diagram, however I feel like this should an operation that is already done at the factory. There is no other way you might ever wish to wire the circuit, so just do it as part of the manufacturing process. My stupid mistake cost me another 24 bucks to get a replacement thermostat. Once connected correctly , it is very easy to adjust and comes on reliably at the set temperature. The fan also moves a lot of air very quietly. 4Whole House Fan RepurposeI'm utilizing this fan in a do-it-yourself whole house fan project mimicking the QuietCool setup. It's working very well controlled by a wall switch (thermostat removed) with butterfly damper intake mounted in the attic access cover in bedroom closet. The fan is mounted to joists in the attic connected to the intake air supply by 10 feet of 16" ducting. The economical cost of the fan along with the high CFM rating make this an ideal choice for my project instead of using multiple dual window fans. The house is a 2100 sq ft two story.5Cool Attic Fan is CoolWorks as advertised. Fan is installed in garage ceiling to push hot air out of attic and up through gable vents of a 1500 sqft single-level ranch style home. In order to accomplish this I simply inverted the L-brackets to mount on the opposite side of where they were intended (opposite pre-notched squares). Had to drill four new holes and cut notch for aluminum sheath so as to allow fan to be mounted flush against 3/4" board. With thermostat set to 105 degrees, fan reduces attic temperature by 10 - 15 degrees in about 2 - 3 hours. Although I have a hard switch wired into circuit, I typically let the fan run for several hours to allow the built-in thermostat to control its run time. Have read other reviews criticizing the quality of thermostat but have had no problems so far. The additional standard light switch is in my kitchen making it convenient to turn fan on/off from inside house, as needed. Also, the fan does produce a fair amount of noise in the garage, however sound is barely noticeable from interior of my home. In short, I am very pleased with the quality and operation of the fan and confident that it is helping to keep house cool, thus reducing run time/energy needed for main air conditioning unit. Final note: I am fortunate enough to have two windows in my two-car garage. Am leaving these open by about six inches for air intake but have safety locks installed on both tracks for security and until I decide where to place a permanent air vent. May decide to stick with this plan for now as the fan will primarily be used for summer months only. Will eventually install vent just in case the fan is triggered with garage windows closed.5Hope the motor holds up over time, otherwise a good cheap fan that does the job.I've mounted several of these already. It's a cheap and simple attic fan both in construction and quality. Without a doubt, it really does lower the house temperature and keep the 2nd story cool. Supposedly, the benefit extends to prolonging the life of you roofing material. I understand the various critical review regarding warped housing and missing parts (they only give you four nuts and bolts to mount the clamp to the metal housing, you supply the rest). My advice is don't buy a used or return fan. I got a dud once with missing instructions, missing those four nuts and bolts and fan blade misaligned hitting the four braced posts etc... Had to do a return and wasted time.The fan is not ultra quiet. The motor has a humming noise you can't miss but is not too bad. The best advice to minimize noise is to use rubber washers to isolate the fan from the board you're mounting it to. Rubber washers beneath the clamps, beneath the screws and washers holding the board to the house studs. You also need to use foam or rubber insulation strip around the perimeter of the board where it contacts the studs. Lastly, the price fluctuates depending on when you buy it. Buy it in off season for best price. It's a decent fan; only thing left is to see how the motor holds up...4Working for 7 years and countingI purchased this for attic ventilation in my home in South Carolina, long hot summers. Along with the normal soffit ventilation I installed a gable vent into the far end of the attic and this exhaust fan on the opposite end.I not only use the thermostat control but it is also wired into a switch on the switch panel in terms bathroom right below it.Our attic is the full size of our 1800 Sq Ft house and is 10 ft high at the roof center peak with 3/4 plywood flooring.Access to the attic is by a normal set of stairs in our mudroom, a 10' x 10' room that has the door to the back yard and into the house, so if dirty or muddy shoes and or clothes or tools etc get dumped there before entering the house.The mudroom has a central air vent so it is climate controlled. When this fan kicks on I can feel air movement if I stand on the stairs or in the doorway leading into the house.If for some reason the fan switch was turned off and it's mid day on a hot day the attic temperature is unbearable. But turning the fan on easily drops the temperature in the attic.I built a 1/2" plywood mounting plate for the fan and it is quiet enough that most of the time, unless I am in the attic or mudroom, I don't notice it.It has been 7 years and it just started to get a little noisier. I checked it out and there is excessive axial shaft play. It still works perfectly fine, it is just starting to make vibration noises.That's 7 years running almost non stop during the summer. That's $7 per year cost if it stopped working right now.Putting another one in my shopping cart to purchase so when this first one finally goes out I have the backup ready to go.$7/yr cost over 7 years and still working.I'm 100% satisfied.5This is a good fan. It would get five stars except for ...This is a good fan. It would get five stars except for two main things. First, I had to do a bit of work on it to make it quiet, mostly add in some rubber isolation on the brackets. Second, the shroud is not round, it's roundish, so it complicates somewhat the installation. That being said, once I installed it with the isolation, it runs very quietly and does an excellent job of keeping the attic cool. I recommended it to a friend.4so far so good. only installed for about a weekso far so good. only installed for about a week. quieter than I thought it would be. the blades took some bending, out of the package two of the four hit the back brackets, but they are flexible enough. also be mind full of the fasteners provided with the brackets, the heads are big enough that the blades contact them if not way forward or back3Fan thermostatic switch did not work, had to replace it at my expense.Installed OK but thermostatic switch did not work. I wired around it to ensure the motor worked OK and it did, so the problem is in the switch. After trying to troubleshoot it I just left the fan wired ON until I get a replacement switch, which I had to order from Amazon for $23 on prime. It is too much trouble after installing the fan to return the entire fan for credit, but I would like to return the fan switch for credit. However, Amazon does not permit a partial return so I guess I am stuck. So much for saving money on Amazon. I should have bought it at Lowes or Menards for slightly higher price and I would have come out ahead..2When this starts a fire, you might get a firenado. Just be safe and don't provide any power to it.Poor design, poor manufacturing.I received the fan and blades hit the casing when I rotated it by hand. So, I tweaked the casing and it rotated without touching the casing. I turned the fan on, and it bounced enough to hit the casing. So, I secured the fan and it worked for a week. Then the contact occurred again. Seems the 3 supports are not strong enough to hold the unbalanced fan in place. To me, not a big enough deal to post a review. While troubleshooting the fan though, sparks began to fly. The free air conductors to the motor are close enough to the supports that they have rubbed through and now it is shorting out. Sure, I could fix it, but if the manufacturer doesn't care enough to QC this design and manufacture, I'm not running this thing in my attic while my family sleeps. Buyer beware.1
