If buying online, change your zip code to 30004 and order at least $50 worth of items after coupons to get free shipping. Otherwise you can try for a price match in store.
YMMV, but I'm attaching pics in case your store will price match since it doesn't show on the tag or receipt as being clearanced. Other Lowes stores are selling them for $112+. Online my store showed zero inventory, but they actually had 3 on display in store. Our attic temp just registered at around 165 - 170 degrees, this fan suggests programming it to turn on if the temp is over 100 degrees. It's supposed to drastically cut down our A/C bill. You can buy solar models for around $200, but those are not gable ones and involve cutting into your roof which increases the potential of leaks.
Reviews: Looks like many from 2010/2011 are negative vs positive ones from the last couple of years. I think the model number may have changed since they state that back in 2010 there was only a 5 yr warranty whereas now there is a lifetime warranty, also people are saying that it is quieter and more efficient now. Hopefully that means they've improved the quality, guess we will see! Sort by newest to oldest to see the difference in reviews.
UL listed with thermal overload protection
30% quieter and 35% more efficient than comparable units
Fan blade is encased in a patented innovative series of rings
The smaller 1320 cfm that only cools up to 1900 sq ft was $85 and not a good deal.
