You can buy rubber isolation washers on the big internet shopping site. Or you can use some rubber washers for a Fawcett.

Answer: 
I found this much quieter than the ~20 year old fan I replaced. Now I mostly hear the air movement. I don't think adding rubber in the mounts would do much good because and fan noise would be transmitted through the mounting screws.

This question is from 1600 CFM Power Gable Mount Vent in Mill

Two questions on installation
(1) Is there anything that goes around the outside, to keep water from coming in. I was thinking of making a square opening, which is easier for aluminum coil and j-channel work related to the existing vinyl siding. But this thing is round. What does it come with for this, or is there another part to buy ?

(2) Also, is there some sort of mesh to keep birds from flying right in

Answer: 
This fan is designed to fit inside your attic. I installed mine just inside a gabled roof end that had an existing metal and screen insert to vent to the outside. I do recommend that you have ventilation on both ends of your attic to maximize the fan's potential to move air. You mentioned making a square opening, Home Depot sells vents in different sizes that can be installed on the ends of your attic Read More

Answer: 
I bought this to replace a vent fan installed ~25 years earlier. I reused the square louvered vent I installed with the first fan. The louvers are "hinged" so the force of the fan opens the louvers. There is a screen in the louvered vent. I checked that this fan would fit my vent. I suggest you use a screened, louvered vent to install in the siding first.

1600 CFM Power Gable Mount Vent in Mill is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 74.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from wow works great It has been very hot here. My air was not shutting off and it was still hot in my house. I have a new air conditioner and it was working over time. I bought the fan bought the extra conduit and hook it up before I went in the attic – it took me 5 minutes to mount and 15 to tap in to the out let that was there. Wow my air shuts off now. In myy house its nice and cool / cold to my wife the noise it’s not bad it sound like a far way fan I did not notice it my wife did. Not bad for a do it yourself I has always scared to work with electric but the guy at home depot covered the steps and helped me pick out what I needed and it was a snap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a champ! Overall the installation process was very easy. I have a steep roofline which made it difficult carrying the necessary tools to the work site. I recommend checking the fan to ensure it's operation prior to installing it and finding out it doesn't work. It doesn't take lone to start sweating up there. Everything you need is found in the electrical aisle (14/2 25 to 50 ft wiring & self made plug). After reading all the reviews on this fan, I'm happy that I purchased this one. IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE!!! You will hear a slight humming noise. Oh did I tell you it was slight? Yes, you have to lay in your bed and do nothing but try and listen for the noise, at least in my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fan I added addiitonal rubber washers to the mounting legs. It runs very quiet - more so than expected! The difference it made on our 2,000 sq. ft. home is unbelievable! A/C runs considerably less than before! Fan turns on before noon and off at around 5:00 pm in our south Florida attic. I couldn't be more pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I ordered the power gable vent PG3x 1600 CFM from Home Depot On-Line and received it quickly thereafter. It took only about an hour to install the actual fan (running the electrical wire through the hot attic took longer than installing the fan). It was a quick install, though I did it myself, I would recommend a second set of hands when possible to holding it in place. The device works perfectly and I am ecstatic about how cool it keeps my house. In the past few years, when the temperature is above 80 outside, the house would be uncomfortably hot, and hotter than outdoors. Now the house stays comfortably at or below the outside temperature. Additionally, the fan is much quieter than I had expected it to be, which is a pleasant surprise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Caution When installing make sure the set screw on the blades are secured to the shaft very tightly. I didn't double check it and the fan blade was sucked into the motor casing causing the motor to burn up after running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fan! I installed this fan a couple of days ago and so far so good. The thermostat is adjustable and I set mine for 100 degrees and checked it with a IR heat gun, it works within the +- 5 degree range. I did get a little vibration in the unit, not that I could hear it in the house, but in the attic there was a little noise. I wrapped the outside of the shroud with adheisive backed foil/foam insulation (available at HD), problem solved. This fan really moves a lot of air compaired to the solar model it replaced. I chose this model over the PG-2 because the warranty is significantly longer. It's been cooler so I can't comment on the overall temp and effect on household temperatures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Quiet Purchased the Model # PG3X 1600 CFM for my 2 story house. During the summer, my attic can reach well over 100 degrees. This generally causes the rooms on the second floor to get rather toasty and the AC starts up sooner and remains on longer for the second floor. Hopefully, this fan can keep the attic temperature at bay. Installation was easy with a little bit of electrical know-how and some wood work. I mounted it to some OSB and built essentially a box with some 2 by 3s to direct the airflow out through the gable vents. Sealed all the gaps with some standard window chalking and applied High-Density Rubber Foam Weatherstrip (Model # R516H) around where the OSB and 2 by 3s are screwed together. This creates an airtight seal as well as absorbing any vibrations being transferred down the walls. Also wired a switch down to the hallway to manually turn off the fan for whatever reason. It is super quiet and can only be heard if I am in the attic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Over all a Good Fan Over all a good fan after we finally got it installed. The first fan we purchased the controll box fell into pieces when we took it out of the box so we returned that one and inspected the next one prior to leaving the store. There was no real sound dampening pads on the mounts so once installed the vibration ran down the wall pretty bad, and that was the wall of 2 bedrooms, not good. So we made some rubber pads to place under the mounts to absorb some of the sound and snugged it all down and it was all good from there. The only regret we have is that it does not have a humidistat on it like our old fan, just hope this one lasts longer than our other one did. Just be sure to inspect the contents prior to leaving the store to save yourself an extra trip back to the store.
