what is the voltage of that fan
Asked by: 111
Standard 120 volt. You need to be comfortable with working with electricity and running wires, grounding, etc., as you will need to tap into an existing 20 amp circuit and run wiring to the switch. I mounted an electrical box in my hallway and put the switch there.

I want to use this fan under my carport as an exhaust fan for my attic. The fresh air will be entering through the eave vents around my house.

Question is, can I install this fan upside down by making an extended frame or can the blades be reversed?
Asked by: Suthrngntlmn
If you put in in your carport, it will pull the fresh air from your carport into your attic and air will EXIT via your eave vents. This would cool your attic and would seem to have the same effect you want.

Here in San Diego CA, our evenings cool off so when I turn on the fan, my house cools down very quickly. It is so cold in my house that I need a sweater! The one drawback of this model is it has two separate switches. One is on/off the other is high/low. My electrician used my existing switch which is off/high/low. I prefer that so much more. Why use a double plate when a single one works just fine.

The whole house 2 speed fan joist in model does a great job pulling the cool air in through open windows and doors. Both high and low speeds work quite well. Unfortunately, the low speed has a lot of quirky noise that sounds like possible cavitation. I've inspected the belt and pulley and they appear to run smoothly. I've also loosened and tightened the pulley belt but the quirky noise remains. It sounds like a gurgling noise which is most strange. Other than the weird noise it runs great. However, possibly you might want to spend more and get one that doesn't make gurgling noises. I tried to contact the 800 number provided by the maker but they don't return calls lol.

It's not hard to install if you have decent carpenter and minimal electrical skills. It's not a "drop in and go" project, because everyone's situation may be different. Don't understand some of the reviews that say it is hard to install. The fan moves a lot of air, but does make some noise. It should be installed in a hallway or other area that is away from your living area, and you won't notice it. Great on those days when it's cool outside but hot in the house...just open windows and screened doors and let it blow the house out! In addition, it should force the hot air out of your attic when running. This is the 3rd whole house fan I've owned and they are great if you understand how to use them.

This is a decent low cost fan, but I would not recommend it over other choices for the following reasons: 1. The low speed does not move a lot of air and the high speed is effective but very loud. 2. The blades are not aerodynamically curved as they are on more expensive fans, which might be the reason for the noise at high speed. 3. The shutter does not close tightly or have good weatherstripping. If you put this in your ceiling to an unheated attic, you will want to cover it in the winter or it will waste a lot of heat due to leakage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best investment for the house for its price! I bought this fan several years ago in my previous house and it was a key selling point when I finally sold the house. Now I am in a new home and am buying another one of these. Very happy with the high reliability and the massive airflow. The shutter looks sharp and opens smoothly when the fan fires up. In Arizona, on cool summer nights, this fan works great to pull the cool fresh air in from outside.

They have changed the design and the dimensions, as a result the new louvers don't fit without major modifications to the cutout in the ceiling. The fan works great. It draws in a lot of cool air in the evening.

I had a direct drive previously and this one is twice as good. I have used it for a month for pulling in cool air in the evening with great success.

I did not realize this until I had the fan installed. I called the manufacturer and got them to ship a pulley. Poor quality control if you ask me.
