Before installing this fan we had a nonworking A/C attic fan. With the old fan the house was very hot when entering it after work. With the new fan the house feels cooler than outside even without the air-conditioning on. I watched a number of U-Tube videos and installed it myself. My installation was more difficult than most will be, because I had to repair the roof where the previous installer had done a very sloppy job.

Pros: Durable, Sturdy, High Quality, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Stylish, Nice Design

THIS FAN IS QUIET AND REALLY SUCKS THE HOT AIR OUT OF MY ATTIC. THERMOSTAT TURN FAN OFF BELOW 80 DEGREES OR IF YOU WANT DISCONNECT THERMOSTAT AND LET IT RUN WHEN SUN IS SHINING. TO SOON TO ADVISE IF IT HELPS MY AC. I LIVE IN THE DESSERT AND TEMP GETS TO 120 DEGREES EASLY.
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Durable, High Quality, thermatstat controlled

We needed two fans for our roof, and possibly more for another building so bought this fan from Home Depot and this another 12.6W from another manufacturer, in order to compare.
The Remington panel is 124 in^2 larger, providing the additional stated 13 watts, however the crystal quality looked more jagged and the solders uneven. Possibly this was just the luck of the draw with these two units. I have not tested output wattage but the rough math does not work out quite right that the additional square area adds 13 watts. Possibly that is due to the relative amount of non-solar perimeter. However the power output noticeably drops with as little at half a hand shading the panel.

Fan started running as I was installing it ! Very quiet operation. Video on-line was a great help in understanding the written instructions which were somewhat vague.

My handyman helped install it. He has all the right tools and is a craftsman, so we were able to complete a perfect install in about an hour and a half. You’ll need at least one tube of Henry’s sealant and EIGHT #6 STAINLESS STEEL WASHERS. They give you the screws, but no washers. If you’re installing on an asphalt shingle roof, you’ll need the washers to keep the screws from sinking through the shingles. We cut the hole, cut the nails under the shingles where the flange would slide, trimmed the shingles so we could slide the fan up between the shingles and the paper. Then, put the fan ON TOP of the shingles and the hole, MARK the screw holes on the shingles, then apply some sealant to theRead More
