  • Roof matching domes means ventilation is less noticeable.

    Too often, attic ventilation is overlooked, not to mention ignored as a place for energy savings. That's where BROAN solutions make sense. Consider this: air trapped in your attic can easily reach 150 degrees or more. With BROAN ventilation solutions, it's still a full 60 degrees cooler in the attic on a 90 degree day. That's why attic ventilation is critical to making any home more comfortable while lowering energy costs. Air conditioners can run less and won't have to work as hard. Humid, stagnant air can be removed, drawing fresh dry air across the surfaces. Your attic can be drier and cooler - the perfect tools to help fight potential moisture damage.

    Each PVC dome is available in three popular performance ratings along with two metal dome models. Select one that best suits the attic size and shingle color.

    Solar Options For Your Attic Ventilation

    Solar Powered Attic Ventilation - Pittsburgh Today - Live KDKA TV

  • Effective attic ventilation requires air to exit at or near the peak of the roof and replacement air to be drawn in under the eaves of the house, via soffit venting. The Home Ventilating Institute (HVI) recommends that powered attic ventilators provide at least 10 air changes per hour to equalize attic temperature.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by product name replaced old fan 25 + years old so far so good works as expected if it lasts 25 years I will be happy September 5, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by 35316 works as designed I purchased a house where the two old gable fans no longer were operational. I found the 35316 on-line at Amazon.com and ordered two fans. My contractor installed them with light switches so I could manually turn them off without using the built-in thermostats. As it turns out, one of the fans failed to work when I turned it on. The contractor checked that there was power to the fan. I called Broan and they immediately sent me a new thermostat and motor. As it turned out, the original motor was defective - DOA, but the thermostat was OK. I unbolted the fan from the housing and disconnected the wiring and installed the replacement motor into the housing and reconnected the wiring. The customer service person was very helpful telling me that I needed about 4 square feet venting/fan for each fan to operate properly and that I should set the thermostat to about 30 degrees above the normal room temperature for each attic. This was very useful since the fan that was working was on all the time because I set the thermostat temperature too low at 80 degrees causing the fan to stay on all the time. Broan makes good stuff! My stove top exhaust fan is still in perfect condition after 50 years of service. I highly recommend Broan for the quality of their products and honoring their warranties. July 20, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by The attic fan has great features The instructions are helpful and make for an enjoyable install. I am wiring in the thermostat bypass and fan motor switches. I am looking forward to the first summer with an attic fan and expecting the house to be more comfortable. April 29, 2014
    Rated 1 out of 5 by The 35316 exhibits a horrible vibration that shakes the entire house. Great potential if only the fan was balanced at the factory. Vibration is horrible. April 23, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to install and relatively quiet This power ventilator is rather easy to install on a cool day. A cool day is easier on the installer and on the shingles. This ventilator was installed in the early spring with the temperature setting on about 100. As a consequence, it did not operate until several months later. One evening I noted a noise on the roof and sure enough the power ventilator was operating as it should. Later in the evening it was OFF. As it is now March 2014, the unit is OFF and very quiet. March 13, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Much Improved Product This model replaced an older Broan ventilator installed around 15 years ago. This newer model is much quieter, has a better thermostat adjustment and is definitely more efficient. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Attic Fan Fan were easy to install and work perfectly when connected. Worked the first time and very efficient as product was rated. June 25, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by My second Broan attic fan I installed my first Broan 356 in 2012, and the second in 2013, after we were happy with the first. Nicely packaged with an easy-to-use template on the packing box for first cutting away shingles and then a hole for the fan. Positioning instructions are good (near the peak and between rafters). I learned from my first one to be more patient with cutting the shingles with a utility knife before I jumped to the scroll saw. Electrical hookup instructions cover different useful options and are easy to follow; I may add a on-off override at some point but now they are strictly set to 110 degrees on a thermostat trigger. The second fan is quieter than the first for some reason, both from inside and outside the house. As near as I can measure, the fans, at opposite ends of the house, keep us 2-3 degrees cooler inside in hot weather. We don't have AC but the fans are great a few months out of the year in our very nice coastal climate. June 11, 2013

    Thank you for your question on the model 356BR roof mounted attic ventilation fan. You cannot access the thermostat by removing the weather dome. You have to access it from inside the attic.

    Thank you for your question on the model 353 gable mounted attic ventilation fan. The 353 will draw 3.4 Amps, so a 15 Amp switch would be fine.

    Are there any answers to any of the questions that have been asked? I'm looking through the Q & A section and I see a lot of Questions but NO ANSWERS. I'm looking for an answer about the noise of the fan. Is it noisy, quiet, semi-quiet, whisper quiet...... Would love it if the companies that manufacture these fans included pertinent information such as Db levels of the fans. SO WHAT'S THE Db LEVEL OF THIS FAN, THE MODEL 35316?

    Can disable the thermostat and simply install a wall switch?

     on 35316
    The fan chews up an enormous amount of energy when it is left running at 90 degrees - and when I'm not home I don't want it running.

    Can I disable the thermostat and simply install a switch in my garage to turn the fan on and off?

    If so ... how do I disable the thermostat?

    Answer: 
    Actually, we have a switch in the garage for our attic fans, BUT, it was done at building the house.
    For you, someone would have to go into your attic and add some wiring from your fan down into the garage. That could be expensive and hurt your attic insulation.
    My fan is set to it's lowest setting, making it run only when I turn on the garage switch. If I set the fan to a higher temperature, then it would only run when the switch is on AND the temperature in the attic is higher.
    Hope this helps. -Brad
