Installing an Attic Fan ...sort of

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Vic Steele, Broker CA DRE 01349863 CA BRE 01349863

This is a story of installing an attic fan.  During a home inspection last week, we came across this attic fan.  I'm getting ahead of myself.

In the kitchen, we noted the bad install of the microwave oven.  Whomever did it, did not know what they were doing.  We didn't think about the missing range hood until later; when we went into the attic.

I know you have already guessed what we found, but here is the proof:

A re-purposed Attic Fan!

I wasn't sure this would qualify for Wordless Wednesday because I had to confirm for you that this was plugged in!

When installing an attic fan, use approved materials only!

Well, you never know what you are going to find at a property inspection. SInce I am not an inspector, I usually just sit in the kitchen.
