Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Cool attic gable fan
The fan itself works well, it is quite, however the thermostat does not work by failing to shut down the fan regardless of the tempt.. setting. Being 82 years of age, I am not going to lug out this 20 lb fan & return it.. I have to use a switch near the attic opening.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HotTXSmoker Very powerful fan!
At 1650rpms, this fan is very loud, but it does what it is meant to do. I have two of them: one is mounted vertically in my garage's ceiling to pull the hot air out of the garage & blowing into my vented attic. The airflow is so strong that this one fan reduces my attic temp (1950 sqft) dramatically so that I can do just about anything in the attic without passing out from the heat - this was not the intended purpose of this fan but boy, do I ever enjoy this side affect!
The second fan was supposed to have gone on the other end of my garage's ceiling so that I'd have 2 fans pulling the hot air out of the garage into the attic...but I had a DiY epiphany: I installed the second fan into my garage's wall butted with the laundry room! Why, you ask? Well, I have the one fan pulling hot air out but nothing cool is coming in, so the second fan pulls from the laundry room, blowing into the garage!
I have a PAC that was vented into the attic, but it was more problematic than it was worth. I do not want my garage A/C'd, I am only in it (for the most part) to smoke since I do not smoke inside of my house (yeah, I can hear the "You should just stop smoking..." comments!), so unless I'm doing something long term with my vehicles, I am only in the garage at tops for 10 minutes to smoke...I'll use the PAC out on the lanai when guests are over!
This was a decent investment...now to do some finishing on them both: borders on both, a screen or functional louvers on the wall.
Oh, FYI: do not attempt to put a solid state speed control, e.g. dimmer switch, etc. on this fan (that happens to be #1 of the Do Not Do list in the instructions). I wanted one (had one) on the wall fan to control its speed while I'm in the garage, but...

Fan was easy to assemble and install. Contrary to a lot of opinions found on the internet, this fan DOES make a huge difference in the temperature of the second floor in my house. It is a lot more quiet than the old one it replaced.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AL3381 Art's new Attic Fan
A solid powerful exhaust fan. I had to rebuild the existing mounting board supports and start over with just a 161/2" existing square shutter mount hole. I trimmed 1/2" from the edge of a square 23 1/2"board to fit diagonally thru this hole, Cut the required 15 " dia hole, then screwed this mounting board inside the shutter opening from the outside thru my wood siding.
It worked !!
Mounting the fan assembly was not a problem. After hooking up the electrical, 4 HD screws from the outside holds it in place.
This 1650 CFM fan moves a lot of air. I covered my 2 whirlybirds on the roof and I can feel the strong breeze blowing at an attic access hole.
I'm very happy with this purchase of Cool Attic 1650 Gable Mount Fan.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 15701 Nice attic vent fan
The vent performs great. It pulls the air through the house, keeping the house cooler.

This fan was easy to mount and really gets the hot air out of the attic. It is a little noisy, but the cfm is larger than most. Do you want quiet and no air movement? NO! Lifetime warranty is also a big plus!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by REH1 Satisfied with purchase
The directions that came with the product were clear and showed the best way to install the product to someone not really sure how to do it. The air flow needs to be somewhat isolated so the flow is directed (forced actually) to the outside and the directions showed how to do this quite clearly. This was good!
