wow this is a great price. I prefer direct drive because there's less to break and it's a lot lower profile. If you have a profile issue you should get direct drive. This should be FP

I cant get it to add to cart, also this thing might be a great price but the reviews are pretty shitty for the louvers keeping cold air out and its 1970's tech. for a whole house fan id much rather spend the extra $$ (to save the money on a/c) and get one of the all in one with automatic doors, remote and insulation added like the battic brands at HD. ill be putting in a fan in the spring.

"It works by pulling fresh air in from the outside and expelling the warm air up into the attic and pushing it out through your attic exhaust vents."

Make sure you have soffit vents. Otherwise it will pull the air from your conditioned space.

The entire idea of this product is to pull air from the "conditioned space" up into the attic. But if you plan on using the fan, you should obviously turn your HVAC off first....

Well then that's the dumbest idea I've ever heard.

Good timing! I love these in the Fall and cool days.

Admittedly, these are less of a good time during pollen season.

Then u have never experienced one. On days where it's slightly cooler outside, but the sun beating on your house all day makes it warm enough inside to keep the AC going, this thing will chill your house very cheaply!!

I can attest to this. Open some windows, turn the fan on, and let the cooler air be pulled into the house and the hot stale air out through the vents. It's great for clearing out smoke filled rooms when something burns in the kitchen as well.

I have a fan just like this in my house, and it works great. I use it all the time in the spring and fall.

Yup agreed. I saw them install this on TOH [thisoldhouse.com] and always thought it would be nice to have one in the scenario you described.

just because you don't understand the use doesn't mean it's the dumb one...

Everyone except you missed the point of opening windows before you turn it on. Obviously this is meant to be used to cool off a house at the end of the day and bring in cooler evening temps.

It's not used in conjunction with air conditioning and on top of that it will seek out openings in pressure in your house. Ex. If you don't open windows it will suck air in from your hot water heater exhaust and cause a ton of problems.
