Q:Its seems like my fan looses communication every so often. When this happens I have to go up into the attic and unplug it then plug it back in for it to work correctly. It will not talk to my phone or run at its set temps when its like this.

        Q:Can these fans be installed under roof turbines? I saw turbines in the various types of attic ventilation on the manufacturer's website, but it did not mention installation. If so, would the fan be blowing hot air out of the turbine or sucking air in?

        So far very pleased, lower temperatures inside the house
        Initially i Purchase 2 of them. Put 1 in each opposite end of the house (north and south side). The reason was because the AC never turned off during the day, since it was so hot outside (my light bill ballooned). The avg temperature of the house is down by about 3 degrees with same Settings in the Nest thermostats, using the same amount of energy (base on Nest hourly report). At time of installation was late September (in Miami-FL) and the temperatures outside are not as nasty as in June, July and August. But, so far so good. The app needs some work, the fact that fans can inly be turn off either manually or base on “humidity”, i think is a miss opportunity. (I would like to turn off automatically if it hits certain temperature threshold) The app doesn’t have WiFi, it only works over Bluetooth (would be nice to control the fan from anywhere, instead of having to be within Bluetooth range) Note: my settings are: 85+ degrees (set to high) 80+ degrees (set to mid) 75+ degrees (set to low) —> currently not able to turn it off if the temperature goes below that, unless i do manually. Nevertheless, very pleased so far.

        The humidity sensor is more sensitive than I thought it would be. In May during cool, very early morning hours (5 a.m.) I can hear the very soft hum of the fan going. (This feature can be disabled however.) Now we are starting to get slammed with hot weather, I am excited to monitor both our comfort and utility bills to watch for a change in charges.

        The fan seems to be well designed overall, but the instruction manual did contain a confusing error regarding the extra "red" wire which, according to the diagram, was located in the incoming electric wire when it actually comes from the fan assembly. It is that wire that, also confusingly, comes with a wire nut attached to "dead-end" it and must be connected to the black wire in order to disengage the humidistat (presenting an illogical proposition to the installer). While shipping these units with the humidistat hooked up (with a 60% humidity threshold for making it run) might make sense in hot and dry climates (e.g. SOCAL), in the Southeast US it makes no sense at all since it will run continuously practically year-round. It would make sense to have two different models for shipping into states where the humidistat needs to be activated vs. other states where it shouldn't be. Although it should be acknowledged that it really isn't a big deal to hook the red wire into the black wires if one can get past the two logic tests noted above.

          I installed this fan on piece of 5/8" plywood that I had cut to fit over the gable. This made the installation easier as it sealed up the gable completely to prevent any blow back. I applied the silicone sealer under the mounting tabs of the fan, and around the fan base also. The fan is really quiet and I have no vibration at all. I can't even here it when the attic door is closed, and my bedroom is only 15' away. My attic is huge with a walk in door, storage area and 3 gables. I only needed 1 fan to cool it off. It's about 20 degrees cooler inside the attic. This past weekend the outside temp hit 109 degrees. Usually it takes the whole night before the 2nd floor to cools off. When I went to bed at 10pm the upstairs was already cool and I didn't even need to use the portable AC unit to cool down the master bedroom. The whole 2nd floor was about 10 degrees cooler than usual. I've only had this fan for a little over a month, but I highly recommend it. I wish that I would have done this years ago.

          After nearly a full year of using this fan, I've been quite happy with it. I live in a single-story, 2100 sq ft home built in the 1960s in a temperate area of California (no central A/C but 1 window unit). We really should have more installation, but we don't. When it gets hot (upper 90s), it gets pretty hot inside later in the day. I installed it in June 2017 and was really glad we had it, especially when the temperature hit 119. Even at that temp, we realized that the single window A/C managed to keep that room where we could retreat to it. Previously when the temp was 105 or so, we would have had to go to a mall or a movie, but even then the house (and outside) would stay quite warm until the early morning hours. Because of the fan, we figure that the house was 15 degrees cooler than the summer before. The fan runs until the attic is cool, allowing the house to cool down at night so we can sleep better, and the house is cool before the start of the next hot day. I had to build a simple frame (see product instructions & picture) because of the way my house is built. I'm no carpenter, but it was pretty straight forward for me. I did require a second set of hands when positioning the fan. I used the fan to mark a plywood sheet to seal the frame so exhaust did not blow back into the attic. Installation should take no more than a few hours, if you have power handy, and the materials & tools for the job. I used a circular saw to cut the 2x4s for the frame, jig saw to cut out a circle on the 1/4" plywood sheet, power drill for tap holes for the screws, electric screwdriver to drive the screws. In addition to what came with the fan, I chose to buy the compressor mount pads, extra screws, a junction box & electrical switch, spray foam insulation, about 8' of 2x4s, and a 24" square piece of 1/4" plywood. One concern I had was the noise. I recommend using something like motor or compressor-mount rubber pads (extra purchase, < $15) between the fan's tabs and the mounting frame or wall, where the mounting screws are. If you require a frame, make it solid. At some speeds, my fan is a bit out of balance giving a rhythmic (5 second period) vibration that is noticeable (but not too annoying) in the house. Overall, sound level is about like a refrigerator (without clunks). When the environment is absolutely quiet, you will hear it even on the lowest speeds. But when the dishwasher is running, or the TV is on, or there is traffic outside, or people talking, you won't notice it, even on the highest speeds. I installed only one fan and put it at the opposite end of the house from the bedrooms (but I wouldn't hesitate now to put one in by the bedrooms, but we don't need it). On the outside of the house, the exhaust & fan noise is noticeable (the neighboring house is about 20 feet from the fan so the sound is trapped) but not objectionable. The multiple speeds are a definite win. I knew the fan would run in the winter (due to humidity) at the lowest speed so I installed a switch to turn it off. But I never switched it off as I rarely noticed it. The electrical efficiency was a plus in my decision to purchase, and the multiple speeds are part of that. I am certain the fan used much less electricity than we saved by less running time for the A/C unit. Another factor in the choice of this fan was the total amount of air it moves. Had I gone with lower volume fans, I would have had to install two of them. (Do make sure you have adequate intake for the size of the fan.) Image 1: Fan is mounted on a simple frame affixed to the studs. Note the motor-mount pads under the tabs for vibration isolation and dampening. The pipe prevented mounting directly to the studs and required the fan to be offset from the gable vent. The fan does not touch the pipe. Image 2: I added a sheet of plywood to prevent air escaping back into the house. It wasn't required, but I used some foam sealant to provide a better seal to the plywood. Image 3: In a very quiet house, about 20' from the fan (but in the house), 95F outside, this shows the frequency spectrum of the sound of the fan on a hot day. Image 4: Same conditions, but showing the sound level in dB.

            Highly recommend this product.
            I researched different types of fans before deciding on this one. It was delivered earlier than expected, and the install was not that complicated. Works great , I highly recommend.
