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?
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
