I'm looking for a QUIET fan to ventilate my cabin through a vertical
wall in a loft area. It needs to move about 3-4000 cu. ft./min.
Needs to fit in 26 inch opening. I currently have gable fans that are
so noisy they can't be used. A belt driven fan would be preferable
from what I've been able to read on the net. Does anybody in this
group have any suggestions or experience that would help?
I have used those that mount horizontally in the ceiling of the first
floor and blow air into the attic. They work great, but it is my
understanding that these cannot be mounted vertically.
From my admittedly limited experience with these types of fans, you are
moving quite a bit of air through a moderately sized opening, and regardless
of the type of drive, you are going to get quite a bit of "air" noise from
the fan blade itself. The easy fix in most cases is a larger, slower moving
fan, but that won't help you ...
