Gable Mounted Attic fan, 1600 CFM
solid attic fan
Product arrived quickly, with package in good condition. Well built fan, solid construction (not flimsy at all). I installed the fan behind a wall mounted louvre on a plywood cutout that extended to the adjacent studs. Wiring was straight forward and when powered up fan ran quiet and moved a lot of air. Overall, for the price this fan is a good value, and as a repeat shopper at Venting Direct, they're a good retailer.

Very good product
I bought this fan after looking at the Home Depot in-stock one, which did not inspire confidence and had been badly panned by purchasers who were perplexed that its mounting bolts extended so far into the fan enclosure that the fan couldn't turn. [Who checks these things for quality control?] Some also said that gable fans were apt to be noisy when mounted directly onto a wood frame.
This Broan appears to be sturdier than competitors no-name brands. I mounted it on rubber pads to dampen any vibration. I am more than satisfied with its performance.

A good fan
This is an excellent fan. It goes around and around and moves a lot of air and if it was a woman I'd marry it.
It's so easy to install that a complete idiot could do the job, in fact, one did!

Excellent Attic Fan
The Broan 1600cfm attic ventilation fan is a good deal quieter than the old Sears fan that it replaced. It was very easy to install because I already had wiring up to the old fan. The one weakness was in wiring the thing to permit manual operation when the temperature was lower than the thermostat setting. I had to cut the black wire coming out of the thermostat and going into the motor in order to add the black wire from the manual off-on switch, thereby having a 3 wire junction inside the thermostat box.

Broan Model35316 Gable Mounted Attic fan, 1600 CFM
I ordered the attic fan from VendingDirect.com and it was a good price and arrived on time. Had a handyman install the fan. It works great and is significantly more powerful than the older Gable Mounted Attic fan it replaced. For its power, it is also fairly quiet. It did not take the technician very long to install, and was pretty simple since it was a replacement and all the electric and wiring was already installed. I would order a Broan product again.

Broan 35316 Attic Fan
I received this product in a timely manner without any shipping problems. It was easy to install and it works great. It is not as quiet as I would like but I'm not sure any fan would meet my requirements in that area.
On a different note, I would recommend that you shut the electricity off before you install the fan. I forgot what it was like to get a jolt like that!

The fan arrived in a timely manner and was installed by electrician. Runs good but louder than expectet, It wa set for 90 and once it starts it will run continuously untill I turn it off 3 to 4 hours. It does not cut off on its own, must not rmove enough hot air to reach 80. I strongly sugest to place a manual on and off switch otherwise the fan could run all night long.
It does the job not as well as it it advertised.

Just what we needed
The fan was easy to install. It works well and is quiet. Had to put a few washers under one of the bracket mounting screws so the screw tip would not hit the fan blades. No problem. Thermostat works well. It would be good to offer an intake screen as an easily obtained option, rather than as a special request, but we don't need it anyway. Very pleased overall.

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.

This fan is easy to install, but was smaller than I thought. It does move a lot of air. It is not as quiet as I hoped, but it is not like some of the fans I have heard.
