Customer Questions & Answers

can the fan be installed to draw air in?

I have roof fans but no gable ends, and my house has a skylight with finished "walls" opening up to the ceiling in the upstairs. I would like to draw house air from the skylight wall, but have read that a whole house fan has to be installed in a ceiling (won't work for wall exhaust?). Can these gable-end fans be installed to draw air into the attic (in my case, from inside the house), rather than the way (I believe) they are intended to be installed (blowing out)? I cut a 17" by 35" hole (and installed a door), hoping the roof fans would be enough to get a good flow but am now want to increase the flow further by installing one or two fans in the opening.
Asked by: stewart
If you look at the photos that the website provides you will see that the prop is anchored to the motor shaft with a keyed slot and set screw. If you want to draw air in, use the set screw to loosen the prop, take it off and reverse the prop (flip it opposite side down toward the motor and tighten the set screw). An earlier answer advising to reverse the rotation of the motor is not possible with a 110 V single phase motor. Another prior answer advising to protect the motor from water intake is something to which you should pay close attention. It is critical not to draw in moisture with the motor's open air cooled windings.

Can the Ventamatic 1300 CFM power gable mount attic ventilator be mounted directly beneath the opening of a roof turbine?

I have a small, unventilated attic area that generates a lot of heat in the living space. I have a pair of gable vents to provide incoming air flow; the roof of the attic has a turbine that spins easily in a breeze. Would it work to install one of these exhaust fans beneath the turbine opening in an effort to increase airflow, and thus further reduce heat buildup?
Asked by: jayhawk6
I have done this, works well. I put a coathanger wire on the outside of turbine to stop spinning.

Cool Attic 1300 CFM Power Gable Mount Attic Vent is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 76.

I cut a circle out of a piece of 5/8" plywood, installed the fan on the plywood using rubber washers (vibration dampening), & installed the fan-&-plywood on the 2x4s around my attic gable vent. Put the thermostat-junction box at the edge of the plywood so the back of the thermostat box hangs free so air can surround it. I can hear the fan when it is on, but barely and only on the 2nd floor. Don't hear it at all in the 1st floor living room. I set it to come on at 110 degrees F. I can't say whether it makes a difference in temperature inside the dwelling because we haven't experienced really hot weather yet (San Diego).

The fan seems OK (running well, and well built- but who knows the long-term motor quality and how long it will actually last). I ordered two fans and my complaint (like others have mentioned) is one fan was delivered bent so I had to bend the outer circle back to a proper circle and bend the fan blades to make it not hit the sides (surely they can pack it better so this does not happen). And the other fan had NO INSTRUCTIONS OR BOLTS/HARDWARE so I had to drive to the hardware store.-- How, oh how, can they have such crummy quality control is a mystery!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good replacement for roof exhaust fan I used this product to repair replace the motor and thermostat in a 12 yr old roof exhaust fan. The diameter and depth of the motors and fan were the same, so it worked like a charm. Hardest part of the job was getting up in the attic and removing the old fan and motor from the old brackets. Had to bend and twist them a little but straighten back to shape when I installed the new motor and fan assembly. Getting a new thermostat was a bonus and saving $700-$1000 to hire a roof contractor to do a complete replacement.

Only problem was that this was not an exact fit. Easily solved with new mounting holes. Minor problem was that the fan was not perfectly round, and when initially turned on , the blade actually hit one of the screws holding on the mounting bracket. Easily resolved and working perfectly since. Pretty quiet operation, and was just right for my space that was about 8w by 20 long and shed roof 8 feet high.

There was not enough clearance between the bolts that held the support wings for the fan and the blades themselves. I tried shaving a bit more of of each blade but that wasn't enough. Tried shimmying the motor back in the chassis but didn't like that either. In the end I just happened to have 4 large flat head screws and nuts and that did the trick. Who knows it may work well this summer but things are not pointing in that direction.

Assembly instructions and pictures show the fan brackets with long ends mounted to frame. If you mount it this way the fan blades hit the nut no matter if you mount them inside or outside. The fan has to be mounted with the long ends of the brackets mounted to the fan. Other than that the item is ok.

Other reviews mentioned the blades protruding out from the housing. I set the fan back in the housing about 1/2" which allowed a flush mount on the garage attic wall. Works great, significant reduction in the attic temperature.

I searched for a replacement motor with no luck so I decided to purchase this attic vent. I pulled the motor out of the gable mount, installed it in the roof mount, rewired and was good to go in about an hour.
