Answer: 
This appears to be a single phase AC motor and I have no idea if a speed controller for this kind of motor is even available. I wonder why you would even consider using one because the noise is not excessive and reducing the speed would severely effect the airflow. Perhaps you could experiment with a quality controller and let us know how it works for you, but personally, I'm not at all interested in Read More

Answer: 
I am not a factory representative so I really don't know, but my guess is that all modern products of this type are required by law to have thermal switches in them and I'd be utterly amazed if this unit didn't have a thermal overload switch in it too. The fan itself has vent holes to allow cooling inside so as long as the airstream isn't obstructed and the fan blades are free to rotate, I can't see Read More

The fan itself has vent holes to allow cooling inside so as long as the airstream isn't obstructed and the fan blades are free to rotate, I can't see where you would ever have a problem with an overheated motor. My motor is up in my attic where I can easily hear it operate on warm days and inspect it for proper rotation when I go up there. I don't think that any electrical device with a motor should be put in an inaccessible place and completely ignored forever. Read Less

Answer: 
The four sheet metal tabs stick out radially from the fan housing every 90 degrees and the fan housing is flush with the plane of the tabs. The sheet metal is thin enough that you can drill holes and mount the tabs at other radial angles if necessary. If you have a wall that screws can be put into to fasten to the tabs and you have a proper size opening in the wall to allow the hot air to be vented to Read More
The four sheet metal tabs stick out radially from the fan housing every 90 degrees and the fan housing is flush with the plane of the tabs. The sheet metal is thin enough that you can drill holes and mount the tabs at other radial angles if necessary. If you have a wall that screws can be put into to fasten to the tabs and you have a proper size opening in the wall to allow the hot air to be vented to the outside, there is no reason I can think of why this fan and its housing wouldn't be the ideal solution. Of course, you must have room for the housing to stick into your garage and the fan up high enough to not be in the way of normal traffic. My garage gets hot too and I was thinking of making a hole in the wooden wall somewhere, but when I'm in there working, I simply open the big door. Read Less

Answer: 
This fan will work well as a vertical mounted exhaust fan. You will need to ensure that the blade is not easily accessible to the garage area to prevent potential harm. Also you will need to ensure that there is adequate intake ventilation from which the fan can draw air into the garage.

Cool Attic 1600 CFM Power Gable Mount Attic Vent is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Something you don't think aboigt til it quits, first lasted 25 yrs, replaced out of respect, not bad! Up graded power wise and is doing a wonderful job. If this lasts 1/2 as long as the similar on I replaced I will be thrilled!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ventamatic 1600 CFM gable attic fan Found this product online and read the reviews, which were generally all positive. Ordered it for delivery in 7 to 10 days but it arrived in 4 days. I installed it 3 days later and couldn't be happier with the results. It has been running for 3 weeks and I've not had any problems. Would definitely recommend it to all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Cool This was relatively easy to install and we do notice a difference in the temperature in our house. It is a good way to stay cool without a big expense.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine. No issues, seems to be working as intended. Easy install.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fan works well but metal housing is very "Light duty" We bought this product to replace an existing attic fan that had burned out. The new fan motor and thermostat seem to work well but the metal housing and mounting brackets are thin, easily flexed and bent. It didn't take much at all to cause the fan blades to hit the housing. So we decided to remove the new fan motor and blade from its housing and install it onto the older, existing housing that was already mounted in the attic. The older mounting was much stronger. It was easy to take the motor off of the new housing and put it into the existing one by unscrewing the metal band around the body of the motor. To help minimize transmitted noise and vibration we installed rubber grommets on the screws that hold the fan housing to the wood braces behind the louvres. Although this product worked ok for us as a motor replacement, we don't recommend it for a new installation where you would have to use the light weight housing that comes with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why'd I wait so Long I just purchased and installed this attic fan, so I can't comment on the longevity, so I'm hoping it will last a long time... I installed this per recommendations. I sealed the edges of the exit so to have a maximum draw of airflow from my attic and exit out a side wall vent. I don't have air conditioning in my 1200 sqft. house located in the San Fernando Valley. It gets hot here. The 1600 cfm unit I purchased has a thermostat. At this point I can only ask myself... Why did I wait so long to purchase this thing! The house is so much cooler. I maybe should have waited till the mid of summer to write this review, but I can truly feel a difference already. Yes I have already recommended this unit to a friend of mine who does have central air conditioning in his house that's about 1100 sqft. I am convinced that his house will be cooler and cost less money and use less energy to run his AC. Good product... worth the $80.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Died after 3 years Installation is easy, as it's only 4 screws. However, this died after 3 years. I keep the breaker off during the winter, and only have this on from June through September. So, 3 months a year, for 3 years was all it took to kill this fan. I'm not impressed at all. I will be replacing with another brand.
