So yes, it is a great fan. Great quality and very quiet. And am hoping to reap the benefits. The company is very customer focused. They called to let me know that it would not be gray but black, and wanted to make sure that was okay. Now for the thermostat part: yes, they have one factory pre-installed, but it is not adjustable. It is set to turn on at 80 degrees, so if you want any other setting (my googling seemed to point to 100 degrees or higher, depending on where you live), you are out of luck. I was hoping to set it higher for the winter, so that the warm attic would help house heating.

Makes quite the difference with this unit in..... The entire house seems to cool down in real time along with the sun going down! Super easy install, YouTube a couple of Remington products and you're good to go!

The fan was easy to install while putting a new roof on the house. The install is exactly the same as a standard vent with the exception of the sensor that needs to be placed in the attic area a couple of feet away from the fan. I was surprised at how little light is required to start the fan.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kasey Good solar powered fan, does what I want and looks nice.
This solar powered fan works well in my application and although the fan is smaller than I thought it would be based on the larger exterior, it seems to do the job for me. I am surprised that it is as expensive as it is. This unit was twice the cost of all the other units. I can't say anything bad about the quality, it looks and acts like a quality unit. Very quiet too. A bit pricey for a fan that is actually made in China. It comes with a 15 yr warranty so lets hope I don't have to use it like other things I have purchased lately. Since it is now mounted on top of my roof I hope it lasts and works well. Should save me a fortune with the solar panel instead of electricity. Also has a buil;t in thermostat and humidity sensor and cuts off when the temp is <80C. I like it so far..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CJinUtah Wish I had done this a long time ago
Its been a little over a month since putting this in and I wish I had done it years ago (had a bad case of the "been gonna's"). it went in easy as pie, and started saving on cooling cost right away. it was very hot the first week this went in and I noticed that the AC didn't kick on until much later in the day vs before this fan was installed. I had looked at the smaller ones that we have in the local store, but wanted to make sure I was going to have enough draw for our attic size. this was definitely the unit to go with. if your house gets hot due to high temps in your attic, I'd highly recommend you get one of these, and put it in. i've knocked off almost $50 the first month of this being installed from my electric bill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BB46M Great improvement!!
We are pleased with these solar attic fans. After purchasing, we learned H.D. does not install these fans so we found someone else. Our installer seemed impressed with the quality and made several positive comments. He did not appear to have any difficulties in the installation. They are a great improvement over our old, ugly turbines!! We look forward to many years of good service.

The solar vent fan was installed by a professional roofer. It went to work right away.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Debo Super easy to install and does a GREAT job!
We set the fan up on sawhorses first to be sure it would move the air. Even in the open it created an amazing circulation of air! The installation was super simple and immediately you could see rivers of heat leaving the attic.
In my tri-level home, getting that attic heat out is essential to keeping things cool. With this attic fan, the air conditioner is no longer essential on a hot day.
