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.

exterior flashing

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

West Orange, NJ

July 22, 2015
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.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 74 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looks good I just installed today . Its took less than an hour with help of my wife.tharmostate is no accurate according to the num . But it does work . But real test will in summer. March 15, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Have two now, going for the third Over the last twelve years, I have installed two of these, one in my stand-alone shop area with an open ceiling, and in our attached garage which has a normal drywall ceiling. Both work very well keeping summer heat under control. I'm about to install another in our house attic, which gets very hot in summer. We have blown and batten insulation, plus a foil barrier in the house, battens on top of the ceiling in the attached garage, and battens against the roof underside in my shop. We do have the possibility of having snow blown in through the vents if I do not close the housings off from the inside with a foam panel inserted into the housing from the inside, and trash bag held in place with bungee cords. Awkward, but it works very well. Dan Colorado Springs June 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase This Model PG3, replaced a six blade unit that did the job. However, the PG3 has three blades with an aggressive configuration is more efficient, moving a larger volume of air and very quiet. This was a great buy for the price and easy to install. I have a hanging thermostat in the attic and compare to the thermostat on the PG3, accurate and within tolerance. June 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1600 CFM POWER GABLE MOUNT VENT This 3-blade single speed 1600 CFM POWER GABLE MOUNT VENT replaced a 5-blade variable speed gable mount vent on which the motor had burned out. I had serious doubts that this vent would work as well and as quietly as the one it replaced. The one it replaced was fairly noisy when running at full speed. I was very surprised that this new vent not only worked as well as the one it replaced, but it was so quiet that I had to listen very intently to hear if it was even running! I definitely do recommend this single speed 3-blade 1600 CFM POWER GABLE MOUNT VENT. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 22, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by evaluating performance I installed this Power Gable Vent 1 week ago and the product is operating smoothly. I am going to evaluate its performance over the next two months or until the hot weather breaks; whichever happens first. I will then post my results here. I realize that a comprehensive comparison might take up to 6 - 9 months but if the product performs as it says it will, (and as well as others have said it will), then I should see positive results in energy used to cool my house, how often the current system cycles on / off, etc. The fan installed easy enough. I used a section of 1/2" b/c plywood (2' x 2') with a diameter hole cut-out equal to the diameter of the fan housing, (about 15.5"). My frame was (2) vertical 2' x 4' flat side down against the plywood 24" apart OD, (see photo). I will add 2 horizontal pieces to block-in. I used 2" wood screws to attach to T1-11 (both sides) to pull up tight. I wired into an existing 20 amp line using 12-2 romex. Helpful hint; if you are working by yourself a pulley mounted into soffet rafter can be a handy way to ease louver up to your position. August 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Fan I purchased this fan from Home Depot because I had a similar fan from the same Company years before. My old fan quit working after years of service and I never had a problem with it. The installation was easy because I already had the wiring done. My attic is very small and its hard to move in the small space. I found that if you remove the three bolts from the Shroud the Motor & Fan Blades come out. (Do not drop the Motor & Blades for this will bend them and cause vibration) The unit is now much lighter and therefore easier to screw to the Gable. Once you have the Shroud in place you install the Motor & Blades back into the unit. Make sure the three bolts are tight and then connect the wiring. I am sure it will be years before I need another fan because the old Master Flow lasted for yeas. July 16, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good quailty I installed this in the winter (attic cooler) powers up works fine. the real test will be this summer December 29, 2015
