Could I install this a a fan to force air thru my woodstove?

Asked by: Undiscoveredadventures
Do your research on how a whole house fan works and what it was built to do..read the owners manual..I would say this product wouldnt be something to be used in conjunction with a wood stove..because all it suposed to be used for is clear the air out of the house and blowing into the attic..releasing the hot air of the attic through the exterior vents..Im not the manufacture or an engineer..I would say do your research and consult a contractor if you still have questions on the subject..

6000 CFM 30 in. Belt Drive Deluxe Whole House Fan with Shutter is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 81.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent upgrade to the house. It... This is an excellent upgrade to the house. It installs in the ceiling upstairs and draws air into the attic from the home. It cools the attic and keeps fresh air circulating. It's not an air conditioner, but great for the times when it's not that hot (especially at night). I used a handyman team to help install it as it takes some experience with electrical wiring. This is the third home I've put one in. Highly recommend. Oh, and Idaho Power offers a $200 rebate for professional installation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it should I bought this and had a roofer install it in the third floor ceiling of an an old, three-story home of roughly 2750 square feet. It's not as powerful as I thought it would be: I have memories of whole house fans causing doors to slam shut in my youth, but this fan doesn't do that, and it also doesn't draw much air from the first floor. Having said that, it does a fine job of cooling off the second and third floors, which is what we need it to do. It's also reasonably quiet. I noticed that some reviewers complained that it's loud and that it shuts down shortly after it starts. I think we avoided those problems by having ours professionally installed. Our fan also shut down shortly after it first started: the roofer attributed this to a lack of attic ventilation, and sure enough, the problem stopped after he added a few vents.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works great.. I did an install from scratch. We recently moved into a 3,200 sf house, and those little window fans simply do not do the trick anymore.. that and we now live in a two story house.. heat does rise I found out. and the upstairs was much hotter than downstairs.. but enough of that.. here is the meat and potatoes.. I first had a hard time finding a good spot to put the fan. It needs to be in a central location upstairs. We have a low sloped roof, and blown in insulation. It was summer when installed. It really was tuff working in a high heat condition trying to find a spot that worked.. I finally did. I cut a joist, and reframed to fit the box fan. No problem. I ran new wires down the wall to a new outlet location near the fan. I did get smart, and installed a timer prior to the two speed switch. I could so see my teens leaving this fan on all night.. and that is not what these are for. I usually leave the switch on high.. and simply push the 10 or 20 minute button on the timer and walaah! The fan actually works great. DO make sure you open enough windows so as to not make the fan work too hard.. you will reduce the life of the fan of course if it is overworked. This thing moves air... a lot of air! whoo hoo! it will actually slam doors to room with open windows, so make sure they are fully open. The fan is actually much queiter than we thought and quieter than the display fan at the store.. not bad :) We love the fan and would definately recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Advertised HD didn't have it out on the shelf, so I had to ask them to get it down with the forklift. The box was unopened, and everything was in the box. Easy to install per the instructions. I did a joist out installation in my hallway. Turned out that the spot I needed to put it had a dummy joist anyway, so I just knocked that out. Any weekend warrior should be able to install with no problem. Be sure to cut the opening for the louvers, since they are smaller than the fan. get some extra 1x4 lumber to allow centering the fan in the opening. Fan is quiet when running. Standing under it, it's slightly louder than standing next to a running dishwasher. Installed it in the hallway away from the common areas and between the bedrooms. Barely hear it in the common areas, and some low, white noise in the bed rooms. Runs well, and keeps our 1500 SF home comfortable. We turn on the AC when the weather gets above about 85F outside. Even when it's warm, the house is comfortable because the air is moving. Should pay for itself this summer in utility bills alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the better ones! Trying to save money, I had initially bought the Cool Attic 30" whole house fan CX30BD2SPD, and the louvers were mangled up while the box was perfectly intact. I called their customer service. What a total waste of time. I wonder why they call it customer service when you get garbage service! The quality of the Cool Attic compared to the replacement one I got from Home Depot is light years apart. The instructions are clear and not copied crooked on a copier, the fan is WELL packaged, the wood construction is solid and not fly-by-night. Don't waste your time thinking that you could save $50 on the Cool Attic - IT'S NOT WORTH IT! Buy this one and you will not regret it. It took a while to install because I wanted it just right. I took the advice I had read from a commenter on Amazon and use foam pipe insulation around the bottom of the fan box to cut the vibration out, and it works great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This unit was a replacement because the origional fan in the house had a burned up motor (actually cheaper to replace the fan than buy a replacement motor). Installation instructions were sketchy at best...even with an existing installation. It took about 5 hours to retrofit this unit to existing installation. It has been installed for 3 days and has good airflow, but I was a bit dissapointed because the shutter has a vibration to it. The fan frame looks flimsy compared to the unit it replaced, but you get what you pay for. I would say for the money, it was to be expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from aim higher This product does what it claims. The box comes complete with most everything needed for installation. The coolest feature is that it can straddle an existing joist. This means a 30 inch fan can fit in a house with joists on 24 inch centers without cutting anything structural. Still, if I had it to do over, I would have spent more money for a larger, better-built fan. There is some specsmanship regarding size -- a 30 inch fan is marginally adequate for a 2000 square foot house. A 36 inch fan would have been better. (Of course, the instructions call for 10 square feet of vent area in the roof. As yet the roof only has half this much venting.) It is surprising that it includes a metal blade. One assumes a plastic blade would address the universal desire for quiet operation. The louver does not seem to include any provision for winterization. My workaround is to take the louver down and replace it with a insulated sheet of masonite in the fall. In my opinion, the instructions are somewhat incomplete and contradictory.
