    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.

  • 35316 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product is well-engineered; durable; economical and, dependable! Purchased in June 2010 from Grainger through my employers' corporate discount program with them. Need was to ventillate attic space with goal to reduce cooling costs--performed above my expectations! Moved to new location and, re-installed this unit in this location. Runs virtually continuously for long periods of time, and, only gets a squirt of oil every year. This is probably one of the best $113.09 investments I have ever made in terms of return and cost-to-maintain. Quiet and trouble-free, also. Every residence should have these in their gable vent(s) where extreme high temperatures prevail. Quality products like Broan/NuTone don't really 'cost' in light of the 'values' they 'pay'/return.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the model is quiet working now and I cant really hear it. I had a electrician install the fan on the roof. Its seald and up and running I cant hear it , I hope this will hel cool down the attic in the hot humid days of summer. I selected Broan because of its name and reviews.

    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 1 out of 5 by from Up and died after 3 years. My prior Braun attic fan lasted 20+ years; I ordered the same model to replace it and it only lasted 3 years. Disappointing. Am going to check Consumer Reports before I replace this one.

    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!

    Does this fan have a thermostat so it will come on automatically? Is that is what is considered other controls?
    Asked by: Mike
    Thank you for your inquiry. You might be hearing a back draft damper that is being affected by over pressurization of your house on a windy day. It would help us to know the model number of your product which can be found above the grille on the ceiling. If you cannot remove the grille, contact us in the Technical Service Department at 1-800-637-1453 for further assistance with your questions. We'll be happy to assist you.

    Thermostat backwards?

    I just installed the 35316. It's 68 degrees in the attic. I set the thermostat to 70 degrees, and it does not come on. Good. I set it to 80 degrees and it comes on. Same thing for anything higher than 80, it stays on, even though the attic temperature still at 68. I expect it would not turn on at all until the temp rises. Is this a defective unit or am I misunderstanding this? Thanks.
    Asked by: JPJ
    My unit has performed in the temperature range on the unit. Attics get very hot quickly in my geography--the power used by my model Broan is roughly equivalent to a 100 watt (or less) light bulb, I've been told.

    If a model 353 vent fan is mounted on the underside of a roof will it still perform well?

    Asked by: The bass man 57
    Probably-but be sure the exhaust side you want is positioned to either draw out or in....

    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.

    set the thermostat to 90 degrees if you want fan to run at 80 degrees you must set the thermostat to 80 and below

    Can disable the thermostat and simply install a wall switch?

    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? Mary
    Asked by: Mary
    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
