These fans often resemble a mushroom or dome shape on your roof. The typical fan last about 10 years depending use and weather elements. Often attic fan shrouds, the outdoor cover, are broken due to weather or animals seeking a way into your home.

Attic fans are thermostatically controlled. The standard temperature setting should be 90 degrees. While 90 degrees may seem high your attic will always be about 20 degrees warmer than your top floor during the summer months.
Check your fan’s screen just below the shroud (covering) to ensure there are no wholes big enough for birds or other small animals. Repair or replace if necessary, but make sure your fan is turned off completely before. A switch or breaker is a safe way to disconnect the power. Do not rely on the thermostat.
