Standard 1,600 CFM Gable Mount Power Attic Ventilator

Quick Overview

Model CX1600, VX2516

Our Standard Series model is built to ventilate residential attic spaces up to 2,400 sq. ft. and is a great fit for situations in which roof-mounting is impractical. Constructed using a durable galvanized steel shroud and blades to resist heat distortion, and paired with a mounting system engineered to minimize vibration and ensure quiet operation. Install is straightforward with our easy to use brackets and requires no special tools to complete. Our gable vents include a pre-wired thermostat to run the fan only when you need it, minimizing it's operational cost. This fan is designed to prolong the life of composition roof shingles by lowering summer attic temperatures and helps to protect attic insulation against mold and mildew in the winter by removing moisure-filled air. Install behind existing louvers or purchase our shutter model (CX2121AM), and swap your pre-wired thermostat for a thermostat/humidistat combo (XXDUOSTAT) for greater control.

1600 CFM / 2-Year Limited Warranty Gable Mount Power Attic Vent is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice fan. Wrong fasteners I bought this fan from Amazon.con Services LLC. Model CX1600 VX 2516. Delivered on Tuesday 5/26/20. Saved a few dollars versus Home Depot so it was a great deal. Was replacing an existing unit so figured installation would be a snap. I have installed these before. This one was nothing but problems primarily because the people putting the bolt package in the box ( factory sealed by the way) cannot tell the difference between metric and American bolts. You supplied metric carriage bolts for the fan mounting brackets with 1/4 20 American nuts. Here I am up in a hot attic with wrong fasteners supplied by the factory (I’m guessing China) and now I have to make a hardware store run for metric nuts. How ridiculous is that. I waste my time and money $20.00 to fix your problem. I know that I could have returned but what’s to say that I get a new unit with the right fasteners. Needless to say I am an unhappy customer. You can’t even put the right fasteners in the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Follow the directions is key I have installed at least 500 of these fans and find them durable. Because they mount to studs I find the need to install isolators. Building the shroud is vital. Without the shroud they don't work well.
