Questions & Answers

Can the intake/grill be mounted vertically??

Asked by: MP
You can easily make an adapter from sheet goods (see photo) that will allow enough angle to close the damper and provide a good seal (i.e. straddle studs).

WHAT COMES IN THE BOX? EX: WIRES AND WHAT LENGTH ? SWITCHES OR?
Asked by: LEE
I BOUGHT THIS FOR A NEW HOUSE I WAS BUILDING BECAUSE TITLE 24 IN CALI REQUIRED IT. IT WORKS "OK" FOR A SMALL PART OF THE HOUSE OR A SINGLE ROOM. IT IS EASY TO INSTALL AND COMES WITH AN APPROX 6' CORD AND PLUG. THE OVERALL LENGTH IS I WOULD SAY IS APPROX. 8' FROM END TO END. IT IS NOT SUPER QUIET BUT DOES NOT ROAR LIKE THE BIG 2000 CFM ONES.. IT IS NOT DESIGNED TO DIRECTLY VENT TO OUTDOORS, TO THE ATTIC ONLY. YOU WILL NEED PROPER VENTILATION IN THE ATTIC TO ACCOMMODATE.

For a 1100 sq ft house what size attic fan is recommended?

Asked by: Ringo12
Figure out the cubic feet of air volume in your house by multiplying the square feet by ceiling height. If you have a consistent ceiling height for all rooms (in my bungalow style house all rooms have an 8 ft ceiling) you can multiple 1100 x ceiling height. If each room is different ceiling height you need to calculate each room independently then add them together. Let's say you also have 8 ft ceilings for all rooms. Your total cubic feet is 8800, or about 9000cf. If you get a fan that moves 3000 cubic feet of air volume per minute, in optimal conditions, in 3 minutes all the air in your home will be exchanged with outside air. Each model usually has recommended max cubic feet house size listed. If the fan you're considering says recommended max size 5000 cubic feet, don't get that one unless you have 5ft ceilings.

I bought the unit based on the manufacturer size recommendations. I can tell it’s on because I can hear the fan (it’s very quiet) but we’ve had no relief. You can only run it at night and not with the AC on.

Had to contact mfg. to better understand how to adjust window openings to get the fan to draw properly, but once that was worked out fan does its job nicely.

What makes this system so nice is that it is packaged well and allows for easy installation. There really is not much too this fan system….you could easily duplicate the function at less cost by purchasing an attic gable exhaust fan (HD sells many from just $60), attaching corresponding flex duct, purchase a return air grill, and build a damper. But what QuietCool has done so well is small refinements to each component that all work together with a slick clean look. Just to be clear on operation, the outside temperature needs to be lower than the inside temperature for this system to be effective. In our climate the evenings quickly cool off as the sun sets. But the house can remain hot for hours. The fan allows you to pull in the cool evening air and cool the hot house down. When the outside temperature remains high it does nothing to cool the house, as you are just pulling in more hot air. I installed this 1500 in a small bedroom that is just 10x11’ with a vaulted ceiling. I also added a countdown timer switch that is easily accessible from the room. I can close the door and set the timer for 30 minutes just before going to bed and the room is nice and cool. It is fairly quiet, sounds like a forced air furnace running. Each installation will be different but it does require some DIY skills and perseverance. Attics are typically dirty, cramped places and it can be difficult. If this is not your thing think about adding the cost of installation to the ticket. My installation required that the grill be mounted on a vertical wall to reach the adjacent attic. Rather than purchasing QuietCool’s vertical wall accessory I made a plenum box from sheet goods that straddled studs creating a good seal and assuring the gravity damper would close (see photos). I should mention the new damper design provides a bit of insulation for winter months. The only thing I didn’t like about the new damper is its shiny aluminum finish, which can be seen from inside the room through the grill. I didn’t think anything of it until it was installed, but my wife said something immediately. I corrected it with some flat black spray paint (see before paint photo below) but wish I would have done so before installing. Beyond the inflated price this system works well for most of our summer months and I would recommend it. About my rating: 5 stars – Exceeds all expectations. Better than the competition in all aspects, design, cost, operation, and support (A+). 4 stars – Nicely done. Better than the competition and solves the problem. (B) 3 stars – Works as expected. Has some shortcomings but gets the job done. Might be short in design, cost, longevity, or support. (C). 2 stars – Falls short of expectations and needs improvement. Pass and look elsewhere. (D) 1 star – Fails miserably. Does not get the job done, might even make things worse. Someone at the company should be fired. (F)

It quietly draws air from the interior and pushes it out through the attic. The house is more comfortable and the HVAC system is running less. We are ready for summer.
