    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.

  • 353 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Nice fan matched the color of my roof works fine turns on & off when needed, except I had to change the thermostat I added a humidistat to it. The other thing the location of the thermostat is under the fan so when it rains it splashes on the thermostat & rots faster, dont like that, I purchased this fan before, so I know, Broan should have a made better thermostat cover to protect the inner parts of the thermostat.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Makes alot of noise Great fan except it's incredibly noisy. When it's on you can hear it from any room in the house. It does pull alot of air and looks nice but it's a headache to have on. It's pretty dissappointing to go through the hassle of hiring an installer just for it to be so noisy. I'm overal not happy with the fan because of this one key defect.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't last as long as they used to Put 2 of these in in 1980. Both lasted till 2010 (30 years). Of the two, one stopped running at all and the other still ran OK but it had gotten noisy and the neighbor paid for a replacement. One of those I put in in 2010 has now failed (6 years). I don't know if it was just a bad one or if the manufacturing quality changed between 1980 and 2010. I suspect it did. I'm not sure any other brand would be any better as I suspect they are all now manufactured in cheap labor countries with marginal quality assurance and least expensive materials. So, I'll be ordering a new one of the same model so I can just replace the fan and control unit from inside the attic without having to muck around with roof shingles to replace the whole housing that I'd have to do with a different brand or model..

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

  • Thermostatically controlled

    Does this fan have a thermostat so it will come on automatically? Is that is what is considered other controls?

    15 amp breaker

    I just installed this Gable fan in my garage and it keeps tripping my breaker. This is rated for 3.4 amps and there is only 1 light on the same line which is an LED light. The fan was running for several hours before it tripped the breaker. Now it trips the breaker the second it starts. I'm wondering if it could be a bad motor causing it to pull to much and tripping the breaker. Has anyone else had this issue?

    I am going to replace my exisiting solar attic fan # 3555SO with an electric fan. Can I swap the fans and install in the existing fan housing?

    Thank you for your question on the model 356BK. The solar and the electric attic fan lines are totally different sizes and parts are not interchangeable. Please feel free to contact the Technical Service department at 1-800-637-1453 with more questions.

    There is a problem with the thermostat which would not go on at 120 on an 80 degree day.

    Now it has been set on 110 degrees and it was 80 degrees today and it did not come on at all. My previous Broan fan would have come on and it was set at 120 degrees. What would you suggest that I do? Is the fan defective? Thank you.
