Fan ventilation comes in various types and sizes of equipment that all offer the lowest cooling potential, but also the lowest cost to install and operate compared to other cooling approaches like air-conditioning or evaporative cooling.
The cost to install average fan ventilation depends upon type, cooling capacity and zone coverage, efficiency rating, preparation and special needs, and the labor rate.
In the following table the Cost figure is based on average fan ventilation for zones ranging from a bathroom to whole-house; and includes transport, material, equipment, and waste.
|Bath (economy, 45 sq.ft.)||Code compliance||Installation||$190|
|Attic (3,000 sq.ft.)||Reduce energy use||Installation||$321|
|Ceiling (decor, 324 sq.ft.)||Comfort||Breezy||$379|
|Whole-house (2,500 sq.ft.)||Negative pressure||Breezy||$814|
Prices range from $189 (bath exhaust of 45 sq.ft.) to $814(whole-house of 2,500 sq.ft.) and also vary depending on your zipcode:
