I have a nice quiet ceiling fan for my attic in the house that I
bought, but I can't find the thermostat. (I know there is one because the
thermostat tag fell down in the attic). I realize that ceiling fans are not
that expensive, but I am happy with the quiet fan that I have, and I don't want
to go to the hassle of installing a new one. So, how would I find and test the
old one (I live in Cincinnati which is cold now), or is it that difficult to
install a new thermostat. I already have an on-off switch for the fan that
came with house.

My reply will be for a Attic only vent-o-lator used to cool the attic of your
house and not a ceiling fan use to blow air in your
living area of your home.
The thermostat should be somewhere near the fan it'self and in the wire circuit
leaving the fan about 2 foot from the fan. If it is
not there follow the wire leaving the fan and see if it has been move down the
circuit somewheres in the circuit. If not Go to Home
Chep-0 or lows and ask for a thermostat for a attic fan. They are not really
sold much and they will have to order one for you. Now
you may want to check the price for sometimes it cost more for the thermostat
than a new fan would cost. Now you can get a
Refrigeration type thermostat that is a super over kill device sold to us hvac /
r people that will do a very good job but cost
about $60.00 or so. Now Home Cheap-0 has a cheap model attic fan for $29.00 and
just take the thermostat off it and put it on yours.

Do you mean a "whole-house attic fan"...or do you mean an attic ventilator
fan? Two entirely different things.
Whole house type has the automatic shutters in the ceiling of the second
floor that open when the fan starts and pulls air thru the entire house.
Also, ceiling fans usually means paddle blade fans you see in bedrooms.
