    Solar Options For Your Attic Ventilation

  • 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 Drastically reduced attic heat I bought this unit last spring and have been very happy with it. My air conditioner ran noticeably less often this summer. I live in the south where it gets into the mid 90's regularly. Installation was simple, although I had to cut a stud and build a box due to the width of the studs on the peak. I wired it in to the attic light so I have the switch downstairs. The only thing I don't like is the vent that I bought to go with it. I know it has to open easily when the fan kicks on, but on windy days it bangs open and shut quite noisily. Now I have to climb up 35 feet and find some solution to keep it closed for the winter. November 6, 2014
    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 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 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 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 As advertised Unit works great. Was easier to install than I first thought. Has made a significant improvement in the overall temperature (much cooler!) in my top floor bedroom. Relatively quiet and turns itself on and off as advertised. Very satisfied. July 29, 2012

    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?

    Broan model 350 starts and stops every few seconds for several minutes when the attic temperature reaches the thermostat setting.

    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

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 35316 gable mounted attic ventilation exhaust fan. The 35316 does not need a dedicated circuit and will only draw a total of 3.9 amps. Depending what else is on the circuit, a 15 amp circuit should be sufficient.
