Answer: 
There is a built-in thermostat and humidistat on every Remington solar attic fan. That means when the temperature drops below 80°F the fan will turn off. The exception is if it's humid. Higher than 75% relative humidity during winter conditions and the fan will run to blow out that moisture and keep the water from freezing in your attic and causing ice damming. So basically you don't have to worry about Read More

Answer: 
Really, that's not necessary. Once you have a fan on top, the resulting negative pressure in your attic will pull in the cooler air from your soffit. That being said, we've seen some interesting applications for our fans, such as venting for greenhouses, school buses, log cabins, top floor of homes, garages, outhouses, etc. So there are probably applications we haven't even thought of!

Answer: 
No there is not. This is a Gaebel fan designed to be installed vertically inside your attic against a vent which should already have screens and protection.

Should I get the gable fan or a roof mounted? roof I think that the roof fan would work better to draw air in through the existing gable as the 2 small ones may not be big enough for air flow? House is 1150 square ft single story.

Answer: 
If you have intake from an existing gable, then you should be good to go. It would be best if you install your Remington Solar attic fan away from the gable to get the cross flow of air across your attic. I personally like the roof mount fans because with the gable, you still have to mount the panel on your roof. But gable fans are especially good if you have a tile roof.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cooler attic When I first saw this product on line I was skeptical of the price. It is a lot to pay for an attic fan but I ventured to still buy it. I had it installed on a new construction home. It works during the day in the sunlight but needs an converter/adapter (about $80) to run it at night. I have purchased the converter to run in during the heat of the summer. The unit is attractive and streamlined and blends more with the roof. Unlike those hideous whirlybirds. I am happy with the unit so far. I gave it four stars which is very good in my opinion and the price is a little high but in the long run will be worth the investment. I think the converter should be included with the fan without raising the price. That probbly would have gotten the fifth star. March 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solar fans We bought two fans one is working nicely in our attic & keeping the upstairs rooms much cooler tban they were before. Installed second one in garage & is not working...had to send for a third one to replace that fan. Waiting for installer to switch it out to see if garage gets any cooler. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent solar attic fan This is a beautifully made, lightweight yet very effective attic fan for a small to medium sized house. It has had a noticeable effect on bringing down the in-house temperatures during terribly hot days. The installation was not difficult though longer than the hour promoted by the product makers. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Purchase Ever. I Recommend this fan. Sweet Cooling for Texas My A/C company selected the product based on the CFM available for my home of 1700 sf. Even with a new unit American Standard he said this would help cool the attic. I had it installed and it started working right away. The summer in Texas is brutal. Temps are average 95-98 degrees in July. I really feel this is making a great impact. No electric wiring and a 20 year warranty. I'm sitting pretty knowing this little guy is up on the roof! July 12, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Let down Shopped around for an attic fan for my garage. Here in Hawaii the garage got to be about 95 degrees during the day. I thought that this fan would work well because it was so large and powerful. The directions stated about an hour to install, took about 3 hours. The directions were a little confusing, should have had diagrams. Started turning immediately. Very loud, but it's in the garage so I guess it's OK. Runs even on cloudy days, BUT it's no cooler than it was before I installed it! I've had it about a month and I feel I wasted my money. May 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not happy. When I received my fan there only instruction where for the roof mounted dome fan. On those instructions it tell you to log onto Remingtonsolar.com to down load detailed gable fan instructions. NO INSTRUCTIONS ON THE SITE! Murray from Remington has his number in the comment section telling us to call for assistance. I called for over 5 hours leaving many voice mails. No call back. At around 6pm I finally get Murray. I explain about the instructions. I also explain that the product is not what was on the web site. There was no packing slip, it didn't even tell you what was supposed to be in the box. I was told instructions would be available on line in a few days, their still working on them. How is that possible? You sell something and haven't figured out how to install it yet? Anyway if they sent me what they advertised I wouldn't really need the instruction. What they did send me was the dome fan without the dome. Murray explained that it would still work and he would talk me through the install. Hmmm. I explained how I wanted an expaination as to how they don't have directions and that I want them emailed to me ASAP. He said he coukdnt do that and he felt the only reason I called was to complain. Then he hung up. Some customer service. I had to built a box around the fan in order to mount it to the gable of my home because the fan is built for a dome and the fan shroud os not designed for the gable. I have no idea how the fan works yet because it was well after dark by the time I was finished. Based on customer service and R&D this company is horrible. I will not tecommend this company to anyone regardless of how the fan works. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing product- Starting working immediately! Amazing product. Attic was typically 112*F to 120*F. Put two gable vents in last year but the passive venting didn't do much. Did a lot of research and then bought this Remington. I'm not a contractor but my neighbor and I installed it in 30 minutes (after watching the video on YouTube.) Checked the temp later in the day and it was 94*F! Fluctuates depending on the temperature outside (We live in south Florida). The fan came on as soon as we took the cover off and pointed it up to the sun! With temp outside at 92*F the attic was only 102*F! Major difference. Critics of attic fans worry about pulling the cool air from inside your house but if you have decent insulation and some gable/roof vents it will just pull the hot air out of your attic and lower the temperature 10-20*F Would have liked the solar fan to not cost $365 but I'm confident it will save me money every month, not to mention lengthen the life of my air conditioner and my shingles. Somewhat disappointed in Home Depot as they said they did not have anyone who could install it for me. Overall very satisfied with the product. Can't imagine having a home in the southern US without one! May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase Quiet, fast motor. Lifetime warranty. Installation tutorials made the installation easy even for a non-handy man. It's been up on the roof for about a month. Murray Smith at Remington Solar was quick to respond to my questions - great service. Time will tell on its durability, but with the lifetime and great service I don't expect any problems.
