A: The maximum pitch that this fan can accommodate is (8/12). In case your roof has a steeper pitch than this and you still wish to install the fan, your roofer can construct a curb to level it out.
A: This fan would not be appropriate for this use case scenario. This is an attic fan that is put on your roof.
A: No, this product is not design to be mounted vertically and would void warranty if installed this way.
A: Ridge venting is still venting and the fan will pull from that if the soffits don't suffice. If you buy and install this fan be sure to place it 5ft or so down away from the ridge of your roof as to not pull air right next to it but to pull from all over.
A: Ridge vents are designed to let hot air out and not bring in air for the attic fan. Need low air vents to support hot air removal by the attic fan. Hot air rises.
A: 1. You need enough ridges to accommodate air intake. 2. You defeat the purpose of the ridge vents are close to the attic fan. Higher velocity air will go through the ridge vents closet to the attic fan. 3. You want air intake lower to pull hot air out the attic fan. I use soffit vents and O’hagin vents located on the bottom quarter of the roof.
