Product Description

(Click photo to enlarge)

Our 16" German attic fans are good for attics up to 2800 square feet. Remove the hot air from your attic with this reliable attic fan. The Mercedes Benz of attic fans.

The tin, 1/8hp, under powered, overrated attic fans from home stores are no match for this fan. Our fans have more horsepower, a reliable thermostat, lifetime sealed bearings, balanced blades for smooth and vibration free operation.

We also manufacture an optional robust 26 gauge sheet metal mounting box which really makes the installation simple. You can choose this option when ordering the fan on the order page. (sure makes the job easier)

This unit comes pre-wired with an adjustable thermostat and a junction box. Just mount the fan and junction box and add a 115v power source to the thermostat and you are done. No need to find (or buy) a junction box or wire nuts as we include them with every fan.
Also recommended is the installation kit to obtain professional results and simplify the installation. Included is a screw guide for your drill and short enough screws so they don't penetrate the roof deck.

This product has a five year replacement warranty. We have sold over 1200+ of these fans and installed over 350 in the last eight years with only one failure which was related to being installed where it got wet.

The price below includes UPS Ground shipping withing the 48 states. 2nd Day or Overnight shipping charge quotes are available by phone quote only.

Using our fan to remove hot, stagnant, energy consuming attic air is a good start. However, significant savings and comfort can be achieved by wrapping your duct system especially if located in the attic, a cold basement or crawlspace. Got a room that's hard to cool or heat? Buy a 25' sample of Duct Wrap for $39 and we send you a 20' piece to experiment with. Just drape it over the duct and secure with steel wire (rebar tie wire is $4/roll at Home Depot), and cut it and twist it like a bread tie. Tape will dry out and fall off. Wire is forever.
Get a blast of hot (or cold) air every time the unit turns on? Duct Wrap will end or significantly reduce the effect.

    Made from sturdy 26 gauge galvanized steel and welded at the seams, this box also increases the air flow by providing a smooth path of air to discharge from the fan.
