I am wanting to install an attic fan over the gable vent and had a couple questions.
- There is a 2x4 running through the center of the vent. Can I cut this in the middle so it doesn’t block the fan? I will be mounting the fan on a plywood frame attached to the studs next to the vent.
- The fan comes with a 15’ cord but the attic outlet is maybe 25, away. Can I simply use an extension cord or do I need to tap into the attic lights and run wire to the fan location?
The side studs are 51” apart and the opening is 10”x15”. I was planning on putting a 17” fan over top.
Thanks for the advice!
