How Much does an Attic Fan cost?

What is the most important factor to consider before buying something?

Cost.

The most important factor when purchasing just about anything is the cost of it. It not only determines if you are able to purchase the thing but whether or not you are getting a good deal. Because of the plethora of options out there, you can compare hundreds of things that are nearly exactly identical.

This is why price can be so crucial in the buying process. Quiet Cool attic fans usually sit at $125-$170. Price, however, does not reveal the whole story. Quiet Cool has two different models of attic fans that give you similar yet different perks.

The QuietCool smart attic fan has, “a built-in thermostat/humidistat and a ten-variable speed motor. When the attic is at its hottest point, the fan will run at the 3,000 CFM setting, while only using 140 watts! For that amount of power, 140 watts is an amazing feat! As the attic begins to cool down, the smart attic fan will automatically cycle itself down to the lower speeds. At the lowest speed, the fan will blow 1,000 CFM and run at only 15 watts! To install, simply mount it directly to a gable or dormer vent and plug the fan in using the 20-foot power cord that comes attached. That’s it! It truly is plug and play, and maximum energy efficiency for the homeowner!”

So, when purchasing a smart attic fan, you are not only paying for the actual cost of the machine but all that comes with it. These features greatly outweigh those of other companies and are the reason for the price. This is not the only attic fan that Quiet Cool has in stock, however.

They also have the pro attic fan which is “equipped with a permanent spit capacitor motor (PSC) that pulls in a whopping 3,000 CFM! The AFG PRO-3.0 is designed for larger attics that need more power than the typical big box attic fans are capable of bringing. The unit also comes with an adjustable thermostat so the homeowner has the option to have their unit kick on when the attic temperature is between 60 degrees & 120 degrees. For example, if a homeowner would like to keep their attic below 100 degrees, they can set their thermostat to kick on at 95 degrees and help prevent their attic from ever reaching 100 degrees! “

The price of these cooling systems remains around $100 to $200 but they are far more than just their superficial cost. They have many different yet similar perks that equate to the monetary price. A price that some could look at as overpriced but the knowledgable will know is quite the bargain.
