    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 4 out of 5 by Great job for about 8 years My fan died after about 8 years. Other than that it worked just fine. Could not be more pleased, all motors die sooner or later. Considering the extreme attic temperatures I was surprised it lasted over 4 years. For the price at Lowe’s you can’t beat it. Off to get another one! May 30, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Replacement Great attic fan that keeps my house livable in the summer. This one replaces the same one I had that finally died after 7 years of hard work September 17, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fit & look great. Just what I was looking for! Arrived well packed. Nice shine. January 29, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Work perfect to remove heat from a poorly vented attic. January 28, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by I'm Happy With It Bought this fan to replace one in a rental property we have that had stopped working. It was a direct replacement and was easy to install and connect to the electrical supply. It works perfectly, is quiet and comes on when the temperature tells it to. I'm very pleased with the price of this fan and the ease of buying it online. January 22, 2015
    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 5 out of 5 by Excellent Replacement Fan We needed this to replace an attic fan that had finally given up the ghost. Installation of this one was a simple "plug and play" experience and the new fan is operating quietly and efficiently. June 30, 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

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 353 gable mounted attic ventilator. The setting of 105 degrees is our standard recommendation. You can always change the desired setting and see how it works out for you. It is not unusual to have long run times in the summer months. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 353. This model is rated at 3.5 amps so anything over that would be acceptable. Typically, it would be a 15 amp breaker. Extending the wiring from the lighting would be a decision you would need to make, but we would recommend checking your local codes to make sure it would be permissible.

    We have sealed and conditioned attic that I want to ventilate periodically using a switch or timer. The attic stays cool so the thermostat would likely not cause it to come on often.

    Maintenance for 356-G?

    Customer avatar
    by
    matlinp
    Baltimore, MD, USA
     on 356BK
    I have a 356-G attic fan which was installed a number of years ago. I'm now detecting a strange noise from that area of the attic - like power is being applied to the fan, but nothing is moving. This lasts for maybe 10 seconds, dying out over the duration of the incident. Recurs every 5-10 minutes, when the fan is off. I haven't as yet climbed up into the attic, but I don't see any information concerning maintenance in the installation manual. I'm sure that there is dust buildup over time, etc. What are the recommended user maintenance procedures, if any?

    Thank you for your question on the model 356BK roof mounted attic ventilator. There is no regular maintenance for this unit. The motor has permanently lubricated bearings and should not need lubrication. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.
