Ventamatic Whole House Fan - 24in., Belt-Drive, Model# CX24BD2SPD
Saves money with a loud roar
This fan does exactly what it was purchased for. We run our central air less than half the time that we ran it prior to the installation of the whole house fan. Being a small house, we were limited on placement in the house, so it was installed next to the living room and the master bedroom. With it running, we have to turn the TV up almost double in order to hear the TV. Being next to the Bedroom doesn't bother me because it is a constant noise that overrides the other periodic noises. Over all, I am pleased with this fan, one downside though is that there is very little difference between the high and low settings. Wish that it had a rheostat switch.

Great fan, great price
I did a LOT of research and searching for the right whole house fan. knew that I didn't want a direct drive and that I didn't want one with a pull chain. Big box stores all stock the same thing, 24" with pull chain or a 36" belt drive, which is huge and too big for my application.
settled on this. Customer support from Texas is AWESOME, they were helpful every step of the way. Shipping is a little slow and not flexible (I was hoping to have it expedited and it wasn't possible) but oh well. Showed up in great shape working and after the installation couldn't be happier with the end result.
Is it loud? Yep. It is a giant fan that goes incredibly fast... the only way to make that quiet is to give it less power or mount it where you can't hear it. It is louder than the direct drives I have seen and used.
Great product, happy with NT's customer service and responsiveness, incredibly happy with the assistance I got from the company.

This fan was well packaged and came with good instructions. It also comes with the necessary wall switches. The only thing I did different was to make a cardboard template of the vent to help me out with the location. This fan is much quieter than a direct drive wholehouse fan. I would estimate that this fan on high is quieter than the direct drive in my old house on low. Though this fan is rated a little small for the size of my house, it still does a very good job cooling my house down at night.

Very good fan that is American Made!!!
Order this fan because it is made in the US. and was a good price. I got a little ahead of myself and installed the single gang electrical box as the on-line installation guide showed a single 3 position rocker switch, off, high, and low using a single gang box. They shipped the fan right out as I received it 2 days early. Found out they ship 2 rocker switches that requires a 2 gang box. One is on/off and the other is low/high Had to re-do the box. So, do not go by the online info all the time.
All in all, this was a very easy install, quiet fine that seems to be of good quality . They also did a very nice job on packaging it, comes on a small wood crate. Nice whole house fan. I would purchase this again.
