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 diagram the power cable to the motor will not allow you to just reverse mounting brackets unless you cut an access hole in the frame mount. With alternating current it is not a good idea to just "reverse the power leads". The motor may run backwards but the lifetime of the motor will be effected and who knows what happens to the thermal switch electronics.

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 installed one at the opening of a roof turbine and it's working fine keeping the attic temperature to about 98 deg F with outside temp at 106 deg F.

Can this unit be direct wired to a wall switch and bypass the thermostat?

Asked by: Jeff
I have done this. Yes to both parts of your question. Very easy to do. Wiring diagram for a similar setup can be found with google. But it isn't difficult at all.

Otherwise, after spending some time measuring and bending things gently back into shape, everything else about the product is as advertised.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from better keep your old housing bought the fan to replace one that had died. The fan itself seems to be the same quality as the one i had to replace; it will likely last a few years in the attic. The housing was a piece of junk. Not enough metal, no stability. The housing was vibrating like mad whenever the fan was on ( shook the whole house). I took the fan out of the supplied housing, installed it in the old ( heavy gauge steel) housing and voila, no more vibration. Keep in mind that i securely fastened the supplied housing to the attic wood frame. the housing supports were locked in tight, no movement, until the fan came on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great & Quietly Pretty easy install (other than dragging it through the attic, but what're you gonna do?). Fits securely, and the thermostat kicks on at 90. The unit is actually partially over our bedroom, and makes no more noise than the A/C when it's on. And it's helped keep the A/C from having to come on as much, which is great on the power bill. This is the second one of these I've put up this year, and both are now working great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for. The fan is an inexpensive fan and its quality is that. I used it as a replacement for another attic fan that died and not wanting to spend a lot of money, thinking I might switch to a roof fan when I have time, it does the job. However, it was easy to install and seems to be working as it should. I have no complaints about it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too early to tell The product is fairly simple to install, if you have basic carpentry and electrical skills. Directions were rather skimpy, but it was installed rather easily. After two weeks of operation, it is working as advertised, operation controlled by included thermostat. It has definitely reduced the temperature in the attic, although I believe it is somewhat overrated for the volume of space it will control.. No loose bolts due to vibration after three weeks of operation. Will need more time to determine reliability. Definitely recommend to use vibration isolation as suggested in instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement fan The attic fan in my 35 year old home stopped working several years ago and I finally decided to do something about it! This fan fit the existing space and works perfectly.
