Think it out before you start cutting drywall

 It certainly won't hurt anything, so go ahead a do it while you have everyone open.This is a great home improvement project that any handyman can finish with the right tools and a little bit of help.

You should frame this whole search around the fact that you want the whole house fan to be located in as central a position in the house as possible. Heat rises, and if you don't have your fan closed in the winter, you're going to pay for it in real dollars.

First things first, always read the directions that came with your whole house fan from front to back. You want it to pull air in long runs so your entire house gets the air turned over.

No matter what you do, you're going to have to go up there and muck around, so it might as well be somewhere you can easily access. Make arrangements now for easy winterization, whether you do that from the attic side or the house side. But it can't hurt, it's cheap, and it's easy to do. The farther up it sits, the less noise it will project into your living area. Make sure that you build the box with air-tightness in ming. Also, it's the best kind of project -one that has immediate results on the comfort of your living area and savings on your utility bills. If you plan on branching off a circuit near the fan, find it and scope it out. If I'm not being clear, SCOPE IT OUT so when you cut a gaping hole in your ceiling drywall you don't get that sinking feeling 15 minutes later when you realize you missed some critical detail! You need to get your eyes on the space in the attic where you plan on placing the fan to check clearance, electric access, and access to a wall if you need to run a line for a switch. First, as the handyman who is going to be doing the work, you want to pick a location that's fairly easy to access from the attic. This will minimize vibration and further reduce noise pollution.  This will serve to keep it as far away from your living area as possible. If you're going to run a new line, scope it out. You need to look for one that has a number of features that will, very soon, make your project go much easier. That's a waste. Generally a centrally-located hallway is best.

 If there's already a box in the attic that you can access into, scope it out.

Installation Tips
If possible, build a box that your fan will sit on top of.

When everything is built and it's time to place the fan in the attic, get some foam rubber weather strips and install it so that the fan sits on a nice, soft, cushy base. That way it's Electric Bikes Wholesalers not behind any doors and it's out of plain sight in your main living areas. Third, continue reading, using this article as a tip-sheet to compliment the whole house fan installation instructions supplied by the manufacturer. When you have the box constructed (I used 2x6s), caulk all the seams with door/window caulk.

If you're a forward-looking handyman, build an open box around the top of fan that you can use to mount an insulated cap on in the winter. Have a plan, and think it out before you start cutting drywall. Location is everything. You don't want the whole house fan pulling air from the attic and spitting it back out into the same place. The closer it is to a window, the more air it will pull through that window when it's open. It needs some space not only to physically sit, but also a place that facilitates pushing air into the attic with the least resistance possible. Second, check and know your local building codes so you don't do something unsafe, or that you'll have to undo someday when you sell your house.

I assume you've already read the first article in this series about choosing a whole house fan, and now want to install it? Good. Make sure there's enough overhead room for the fan itself. Is that over the top? Maybe.

Next, look to see how you're going to run electric to the fan.
