Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PowerGuy A Little Light on Air Power - Couldn't Overcome Spring to Open Vent
I used this Fan to exhaust my garage using 'Speedi-Products 8 in. Round Galvanized Wall Vent with Spring Return Damper'. The Fan was unable to deliver enough pressure to overcome the resistance of the vent spring and so I removed the spring. As this is a garage, I'm not too concerned with a tight fit so the loss of the spring to hold the vent closed is no big deal.
There seems to be a mismatch between too little power in the fan and too much force to hold the vent open. I live at 5000' altitude, so this may be a contributing factor; it may work fine at sea level. Overall the fan volume of air is adequate and it's really the spring that is too strong in my application.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DHD Works better than expected
I was very skeptical that this would work. Placed in a duct leading into a very inadequately insulated mud room and it raises the temperature at times a good 20 degrees when the furnace runs. It is audible but not annoying as it's under the kitchen. When operating it outside the duct in free air it's very quiet so I don't think I can blame the unit. Use it with the inexpensive DS100 switch so it turns on when the furnace runs otherwise it runs all of the time. Very easy to install as it comes with the AC plug that plugs into the switch or wall outlet. In time we'll see how long it lasts.

Nice in-line fan. Quiet and moved sufficient amount of air for utility closet were cleaning chemicals are stored.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BalashiMan Not as powerful a fan as I wanted
The fan is rated at 500 cfm, which should forcefully move a lot of air, but it is a very gentle breeze not very strong.
I bought the 8" fan and after a week bought a 6" reducer and new 6" flex duct which helped increase the air flow.

Moves the air as promised. My only concern after reading some of the reviews was - how quiet is it really? It's been running for a week, now, and I have to put my hand to the vent to feel the airflow to confirm it's running. It is very quiet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Festis good flow, a bit noisy
had a room off the far end of the house. installed this fan in the duct work. it raised the temp by about 10 degrees. close to the temp of the rest of the house. you can hear the fan run but it's not a big deal. must use with a temp censer.

This fan has been installed for one week and works good at this point. It made a big different in my living room. If you order this product remember to order the ducstat to turn it off and on.
