    Anyone know of someone that can replace a broken roof attic fan? I verified the breaker, and the temp adjustment, so I am assuming it is frozen up and/or broke.

    Thanks

    FYI, ours went bad a few years ago and when I contacted the company they sent a new one no charge.

    We just had ours replaced - Absolute Electric (571-244-4268) did a great job. We were very happy with their professionalism and pricing.

    Went with Ashburn Electric - Craig @ 703-969-1812. He went with a higher CFM unit and also added a on/off switch right at the top of the attic stairs. He said that to be in code they are suppose to have a on/off switch so you can turn the power off in case you have to work on it. To be honest I don't think the original exhaust fan put in by Van Metre ever worked. I installed a HD antenna a couple of years ago and it was hot as you know what up there and the thing never turned on even after adjusted the it down to 80 degrees. Oh well live and learn.

    You should also consider a solar powered unit if you need to replace it. Maybe more cost effective.
