Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AB Flimsier than I expected, but not a bad value.
The shutter is the worst part about the fan. It is extremely thin and will not keep out much air while its closed.It opens and closes just fine, it just wasn't designed to be air tight. There are no gaskets on it anywhere. You will definitely want to cover this up in the winter if you live in a colder climate!
The main housing is made from relatively thin metal too. You can tell this was put together quickly without wasting any material- nothing on this is overkill. It is designed well enough though to work just fine. The pulleys lined up okay and it runs smoothly. I did add two extra bolts to the motor mounting bracket. Mine only came with two, and there are locations for four.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wholehousefantwoinstall 24 in belt drive whole house fan with shutter
This is the second whole house fan I have installed in two different homes. Second install when much faster as I know how to install via the instructions and noting the shutter assemble impacts where you cut the sheet rock hole in ceiling. Install is easier if your house is pre-wired with a 3 gauge wire.
Overall fan, motor, assemble is fine, works quietly and I like the two speed fan motor for high and low. Fan moves a lot of air as expected. They are including two switches on/off and high/low in the box.
They should include a winter cover to attach to the shutter inside the house to stop any air flow. The shutters do leak cold air in the winter or hot air up during the heating period in the winter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hepatica great way to save on A/C bill
These fans are a bit of project to install but worth the trouble in savings. If turned on at night when it is cool out--if it is cool out!--we find the house cools down to about 5 degrees above the outside overnight low. We close all nearby windows and have it draw the cool air through the downstairs. If we need to cool upstairs rooms near the fan we just crack those windows. If you are able to open your basement windows, even better, as that air is cooler. Once the outside temps start to rise in the morning, we turn off the fan and seal up the house for the day--including closing curtains and shades. This system doesn't work when the nights are hot, but there are usually quite a few cool summer nights (below 70) followed by hot days. We estimate that we save several hundred dollars a year with this. Important to remember: CLOSE the attic door or louvers before turning on the house A/C and seal and insulate the opening for the winter or you will lose some of that money saved.
This replaces one that came with our 60+ year old house. It is more powerful than the old model, and because of the belt drive, quieter.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JB Poor assembly
The pulley on the fan was NOT tightened at the factory. As a result, the pulley slipped way out of alignment from the fan motor and the fan froze. I was able to get in the attic and fix it, but this should never happened in the first place. Pulley on the motor was not set right either, so I had to use a puller to remove it and set it properly. Fortunately this was done prior to installation. If you purchase this fan, make sure to check all set screws, nuts and bolts to ensure tightness BEFORE you install it. The fan does a great job and is relatively quiet compared to my last fan.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cadman Missing Parts
Got the fan in, carried it 90 miles to jobsite only to open box and find missing parts. Supposed to be a 2 speed 24" belt driven fan with switch and shutter. Only thing in box was fan and shutter. No switch, no belt, no paperwork of any kind. Pretty difficult for a belt driven fan to operate without a belt. Call HD and they called manufacturer 2 weeks ago, no one has called back and parts still missing.........not a very good way to conduct business...........not satisfied at all...........do not do any Internet business with Home Depot...if you do beware..........

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Soosahn Everything a person with normal expectations would want
This is not the Rolls Royce of ceiling fans. It is a ceiling fan that draws air through your house at a decibel level which is reasonable for a machine doing this job. My handyman took about 3 hours to install it and he said the directions were easy to follow. I use it almost every day. It does a great job.
