Comes with just the black and white and ground wires--with wire nuts. I had to provide romex to a switch so I can turn it off in winter when not wanting it to run.

Answer: 
Without climbing back into the attic for a visual, I estimate the brackets to "stick out" about 5 to 6 inches. They have 2 or 3 holes on each, so could be shortened if desired.

Answer: 
The brackets are adjustable for the depth and are 3-4 inches long. You should mount the fan so there is a very small space between the fan shroud and the opening for maximum efficiency. I used a piece of plywood and cut a hole that left 1/4 of an inch around the fan shroud.The plywood was then mounted to the eve vent.

Thank you for your question about this attic ventilator. We appreciate your business. The four brackets that extend from the housing are 4-1/4" long. I'm not certain that you wanted to know about the bracket part that's attached to the housing, but that portion is 3-1/16". I hope this information will be helpful.

Answer: 
There is no "speed control" on this type of electric motor. It comes on and off per the temperature setting on the thermostat. All is controlled by simply wiring in a light switch. Then the whole unit is on or off much like a "kill button."

As an aside, the speed control would have to be set to work down stream from the thermostat if you want the thermostat to control power On to the fan. I am not an electrician, but I know you can make the fan run slower than the 1500 CFM. It just seems a bit of a waste of money for my needs.
I did consider mounting the fan in a suspended from the rafter condition, with ducting to the gable opening. This would mitigate some of the noise factor. Read Less

yes, however not a paddle fan type speed controller. You need to match the amperage of each device.
Life of motor. No effect in my experience
keep thermostat. Wire speed controller in series with the feed going to t-stat
This fan is noisy, caution on placement above a bedroom or vented through vent to patio.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 53 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy assembly and install This is the third fan that I have installed in this position in 21 years. Compared to the previous model that I removed. this one is better built and the reostat operates more smoothly. It is the same diameter as the old one (15") so no major changes were required. The connection box is hard mounted inside the fan casing. so if you have to replace an old one, take into consideration that you may need a little extra wire to make the run. Because this is a semi-frequent repair, I terminated the supply wiring with a switch box and outlet and converted the fan to a plug in so next time it is not necessary to take down a household circuit for repairs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product, moves the air in the attic. Unit was easy to install and does what it is suppose to do, move air. Fan noise is about the same as the old unit that was replaced. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Replacement fan to match existing We had a picture of the existing fan that was bad, and it matched great. August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lasted 8 years! Bought 2 of these 8 years ago because I planned on using both in different gable vents. I live in Las vegas. Attic temperatures are easily over 140F. Given the quality of most appliances these days I would say that 8 years is pretty good given how much this fan had to run. Some days it was on for 16-18hrs for 7-8 months of the year. The fan always did make a little more noise than I would have liked but I knew to mount on rubber bushings but chose to directly lag it to framing members. Glad I never used the other exhaust fan because now I need it. Just dreading going in the attic because it is summer time and even at night it is well over 100F up there. It is even possible that the thermostat has gone out and the motor is still good? Guess I will find out after I climb in there! I recommend the fan. June 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works great! We bought this house in 1993. In the summer we never went to the liveable attic, because it was too hot. The house is a 2 1/2 story house built in 1902 and never had a gable or roof vents. We have been working on the exterior of the house this year and installed this Broan gable vent. We now use the attic in the summer months and enjoy the extra space. I mounted the fan to 3/4 inch plywood with a 15 inch diameter hole cut in it, I screwed it over the gable vent and ran a kill switch to the room below it, which was our bedroom. We hardly hear it at night, we have traffic going by, train whistles, and our room a.c.unit. If we wanted a motor we couldn't hear, we would have purchased one with a smaller motor and less powerful We love it and have already told our friends about it! . May 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Attic fan purchase Since I must write at least 50 characters I will do so in explaining that I have not actually installed the product yet as the attic is 120 degrees except early in the morning but I am planning to shortly get it done. I am impressed with the quality of the fan in comparison to the one it is replacing and am quite sure it will serve me well. June 7, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Poorly packaged Very poorly packaged...fan shell distorted and fan blades were hitting outer fan shell. Had to bend shell back into shape. I should have taken it back to the store, but I fixed myself to avoid further delay. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product; wonderful results The installation of this product was straight forward. Mounting it on a 3/4 inch piece of plywood nailed on the gable wall created a great seal. Although you can hear the fan from outside the house, it is not too bad in the room directly under it. A kill switch was wired into the circuit and placed inside the closet of the room directly below the fan. However, my wife doesn't find the fan noise disturbing and she noticed a marked difference in the temperature of the house after the fan was installed. This product performs as advertised.
