I'm short on roof venting and my contractor has recommended a "push-pull" arrangement with one fan blowing in and the other extracting air out the other end. Can this be done?

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting MasterFlow ... This process is not recommended. It is not efficient to use two fans where one can perform the job and you would have to run two fans from one thermostat, which also is not recommended. Please call Technical Services Group at 800-211-9612, M-F 8A-5P EDT to get any additional information needed.

Thanks for the concern with synchronizing the two units K... I'm thinking to use only one thermostat on the inlet fan and run a second pair wire to the other fan. Single thermostat control for both units? Do you think this would be okay? /hotinhouston

These units come with a thermostat. Since the air temperature differs from inside and outside the attic it would be very difficult for two units to run in sync. I installed mine in 2007 and has run great ever since. I would install one exhaust only. If you feel it's not working for you I would see about getting more vents.

Answer: 
Yes you can, you just have to by pass the thermostat or take it out of the circuit. The life span maybe greatly reduced by not having the on/off cycle.

Is vibration / noise normal?

This question is from 1540 CFM Power Gable Mount Vent in Mill
Asked by
Lake City, Fl.

April 26, 2016
Mounted it in my shop less than a week ago. It works fine but the motor/fan assembly is vibrating the shroud to a great extent and it is VERY noisy. I fear that the vibration will end up loosening the bolts that attach the motor/bracket to the shroud or that the metal will fatigue and crack. Is this normal?

Answer: 
No, I have mounted several of these and I have never had excessive vibration or noise. The only thing I can think of is that the arms that hold the motor are loose. Besides that, you probably have a bad unit.

Answer: 
Vibration and excessive noise is not normal. If there is not enough air intake ventilation (min. of 700 sq inches of NFA intake) this can cause blade cavitation (vibration and noise). Please call Technical Services at 800-211-9612 for additional information, M-F 8A-5P ET.

I installed mine in the summer of 2007 and have not touched it since. The summer can get pretty toasty in Sacramento too. I have a remote thermometer in my attic and on a 109F day it read 122F up there. It's paid for itself countless times since I don't use my air-conditioner as much. Cool attic=cool house.

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting MasterFlow ... Our gable mounted fan motors are designed to operate in 150-160 degree attics. The key is to make sure that the required intake ventilation of 768 square inches of Net Free Ventilation is correctly installed in the attic space.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 117 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good Fan was packaged well and there were no defects visible. Installation was easy enough. After install I went to turn the fan on and it wouldn't start. Found the thermostat was stuck and after a sharp rap with the end of the screwdriver it started to work. A little worrisome on that front but it seems to be working fine. There is a squeaky noise that you can hear from outside but the overall noise inside is negligible and the fan is installed over my bedroom. It is a good value for the money considering the amount of air it moves and the low amperage it is rated. I would buy another. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mounted it Vertically Here are some shots of the (Gable) Attic/Garage Fan that I installed in my attic above the garage. My main goal was to cool down the garage on hot summer days. It gets to be over 100 degrees. God knows what it is like in the attic above the garage. Probably 130-180? I calculated that I need appx. 400CFM to cool down the garage. The fan is a 1650CFM gable fan. The fan is 15 inches in diameter. So I was able to run two 6” semi-flexible ducts off of it comfortably. One to go to the ceiling of the garage and the other to a little shy of the attic floor with an elbow. (I did not want it to suck out the loose insulation from the attic and blow it all over the neighborhood). I figured with all of the restrictions that should about do it around 800CFM and less each duct. I mounted a 6” under eve vent in the ceiling of the garage between the door opener and a light. I mounted the gable fan vertically to vent out the ridge roof vent and not horizontal as it was designed. In order to make it quieter, reduce the vibration and seal off superfluous air flow, I slit a piece of ¾ “ caulk saver foam ½ way through and silicone mounted it to the top and bottom of the fan. The fan is completely enclosed and baffled to direct all the air out the ridge vent and not blowing around in the attic. The fan is mounted to a ¾” 2’x2’ piece of plywood, while the baffles are 1/2” plywood. All of the cross members are mounted on plain old 2x4’s. This was an easy approach as the roof joists are on 24” centers. Power was easy to get to, I just ran a line from the single duplex box that the garage door opener was plugged into. The fan draws less than 4 amps so I ran 14/2 Romex to an switched (on/off) cover plate that I installed a 15amp circuit type fuse. This way I can always shut it off if I need to and if the circuit breaker trips, I can always reset it after determining the problem. So in testing it, it runs great and quite with very little vibration. The draw at the ceiling can support and empty plastic garbage. Maybe I have to put in some vents in the garage door for make-up air or just open it a little so it does not suck the cool air out on the house. I can also add dampers to the 6” extensions to throttle down the draw but I would rather like to run full throttle open. So in conclusion, I set the thermo for 100 degrees and we shall see what happens. Enjoy the pics!!!! February 28, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quik shipping. This attic fan was fairly easy to install. Just followed the instructions and did not have any problems. My attic is now kept at a normal temperature. It really blows out the hotness in the attic. I am very pleased with is product. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fan work well The fan works well to cool the attic. Works great. April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy To Install & Priced Right We've been intending on purchasing this for some time now. We finally did and are very happy with the fan. Now granted, this is only our first night with the fan, but we do notice the difference already. 1. The fan is not tough to install. You will need to provide your own screws for mounting though. Easy enough to use the screws of your existing attic fan. It takes about 30 minutes. RECOMMENDATION: If you are installing this fan during spring or summer, do as much of the assembly as you can before going into the attic. Your attic is probably hot, and wherever you can assemble it (by not being in the heat) will probably be better. 2. The fan runs quiet. 3. We installed the fan at 6:00 pm (in the summer) and the temperature was over 100 degrees in the attic. By 11:00 pm, the temperature was down to 80 degrees. Withing a couple of hours the temperature was down to 90 degrees. The attic was bearable again! Not too sure why we did not purchase this sooner. I am guessing that our A/C cost be reduced. This is just night #1 so we shall see. I would recommend this attic fan and I hope your experience is as flawless as ours! July 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Gable Vent Fan I used this to replace one that was at least 35-40 years old and the thermostat had broke and the fan was noisy. Happy to report the new one runs great, makes a huge difference in the heat and moisture in my attic I don't hear it at all and helps bring the house temp down. I started to monitor it after our home seemed much hotter than before. That was when I realized the old fan had stopped working and we had some really high attic temperature readings 130 degrees and up range. Since putting it in the highest tempurture reading has been 118 degrees. The fans set to turn on at 105. I would suggest installing early in the morning, or on a cool day if you can. I wanted to get it in and running so I just did it. Setting up another fan to give you some air relief while you work could be a good idea. I think I lost 5 lbs installing it as it was really hot in the attic the day I did it. Installation was easy ,the hard part was just moving around and working in the attic. I would say it took me about 1 hr to install. June 10, 2015
