Product Overview

More homes and businesses in the U.S. are protected by a GAF roof than by any other product. We are the leading roofing manufacturer in North America.

Nothing protects quite like a roof.

Nothing protects quite like a roof. That's why millions of Americans live, work, and play under quality products from North America's largest roofing manufacturer - GAF.

Always have a balanced ventilation system. The amount of exhaust ventilation should always be equal the amount of intake ventilation.

How much Ventilation do I need?

Include 1 sq. ft. of attic ventilation, evenly split between intake and exhaust, for every 300 sq. ft. of attic floor space.

Choosing the right attic ventilation for your home is very important. GAF offers a great selection of Master Flow and Cobra products.

What type of Ventilation do I need?

Review the ventilation options below to determine the best fit for your home application.

Available in both roof mount and gable mount, power attic vents exhaust the greatest volume of hot and/or humid air from the attic.

High efficiency Electric, Solar or Hybrid

Quickly removes large volumes of heat and moisture from your attic.

Cooler external air enters through vents lower on the eaves or soffits that “pushes” the hot/moist attic air out of the vents higher on the roof.

No electricity required

Allows excess heat and moisture to escape your attic without the need for electric hook-up.

Wind Turbines utilize the wind to pull heat and moisture from your attic and acts as a static exhaust vent when wind is still.

Wind-powered, smooth, and quiet operation

Utilizes the wind to pull heat and moisture from attic; acts as a static exhaust vent when wind is still.

Located at the lowest part of the roof, intake vents are a critical part of the attic ventilation system, allowing fresh air to flow into the attic

The most overlooked and critical part of attic ventilation

Allows cooler, fresh air to enter the attic at/near the soffits driving heat and moisture out higher exhaust vents.

Your home offers warning signs when your attic isn’t properly ventilated. You may recognize some of these signs in your own home.

5 Warning Signs

Here are some poor attic ventilation warning signs that you may recognize:

A possible cause of higher cooling costs could be insufficient attic ventilation, requiring the cooling system to run excessively.

1. Increased energy costs

Excess attic heat can cause your cooling system to work harder, raising your energy costs.

If you see that your shingles are dry or breaking, that could mean you have inadequate attic ventilation or you may need a new roof

2. Curling/cracking shingles

Inadequate ventilation can cause your roof shingles to curl and crack.

Moisture in the attic can become trapped and condense on rafters and insulation if not insulated properly. This can potentially increase energy costs

3. Roof decking moisture

Excess attic moisture can drip into attic insulation reducing effectiveness, even damaging ceilings below.

Stains or mold growth inside your home may be caused by inadequate attic ventilation. Excessive moisture in the attic allows mold and mildew to thrive

4. Attic mold/mildew

Excessive moisture can cause dangerous mold and mildew causing additional concerns.

Ice damming can cause water to enter the attic and house if you don’t have an adequate shingle underlayment or if the flashing has deteriorated.

5. Winter ice dams

Ice dams can cause expensive leaks and damage in attics, as well as living spaces.

YOUR MOTOR DOES HAVE A OIL PORT ON BOTH SIDES OF THE MOTOR AND I BELIEVE THAT THE SLOW UP IS DUE TO THE GREASE, OR OIL AROUND THE BEARINGS TRYING TO SEAZE THE SHAFT WHEN IT STARTS TO HEAT UP. Try to oil the shaft with 3in1 oil and see if that helps.

Bill, It sounds as though you purchased the motor off the shelf at the store, this motor must be ordered on line and the cost of the motor is close to $100.00 It is for the smaller units go to the help desk and order the right motor for the exhaust blower it is also a stronger motor and should last as long or longer than the original motor.

Great product with two weeks in. Make sure you purchase the proper size motor for your attic fan. This one has enough horsepower to run my high-pitch 5-bladed fan. A smaller one that I purchased off the shelf only lasted one day. Also my install didn't need the included spacer clip.

Replacement for my old zhongshan broad-ocean ydz-150l62540-01 motor
This motor was an exact replacement for my old roof power ventilators. Was lucky, the old power vents were installed in 2006 and failed 2019. The old motors were zhongshan broad-ocean ydz-150l62540-01. Theses replacement motors are heavy duty and more powerful. Hope this equates to long life. These motors fit the frames of the original power vents. They include spacer rings that I didn’t need. The flex conduit from the old motors (connection from motor to thermostat) they easily unscrewed from old motor and easily reattached to new motor. Happy I found these, wasn’t in the mood to replace with new roof vents. The replacement motors are a little more than the basic motor and worth the extra $20 in my opinion One installation tip for the do it your sellers ... affix the flex conduit from old motor to the new. Insert motor in frame and align the blade set screw to the flat part of the motor shaft. Let new motor shaft extend about 1/2” past blade and tighten set screw. This way the fan blade supports the motor as you maneuver the motor into the frame.

This is the second motor installed in one year to replace the original that lasted 12 years according to the Sears tag on the motor. Bought one last year to replace the 12 yrs old motors and it stop working during the most need time. Replaced it yesterday and it failed in 1-day. What is up with these low budget motors? Either the Capacitor is going out or motor or both. Don't have to time to tested out. Returning motor another, hopefully last longer?
