If you are installing external
blower on a flat roof:
2 x 4 framing
recommended
33-1/4"
(84.5 cm)
discharge side
of blower
2"
26-3/4"
(5.1 cm)
(67.9 cm)
Locate the 11" (27.9 cm) dia. hole
between rafters.
Build a sloping base that will mount the
exterior blower at a minimum pitch of
2-1/2" (6.4 cm). Weatherproof the base
as required.
Locate the base so that the exterior
blower's vent aligns with the 11"
(27.9 cm) dia. hole and the blower sits
evenly on the base with no gaps.
NOTE: Make sure that the discharge
end of the exterior blower faces away
from the direction of prevailing winds.
Use dimensions from either FIGURE 1
or 2 (Page 3) to locate the 1-1/4"
(3.0 cm) dia. wiring hole.
6.
Remove roofing nails from the
upper two-thirds of the shingles to allow
the back flashing sheet on the exterior
blower housing to fit under them.
7.
Center the exterior blower collar
in the 11" (27.9 cm) diameter hole,
making sure that the 1-1/4" (or 3.0 cm)
diameter electrical wiring hole lines up
with the hole in the wiring box.
8.
Attach the exterior blower to roof
or frame using screws appropriate for
your installation. All four holes in the
back panel must be filled to prevent
moisture that may get inside the remote
blower housing from leaking into the
home.

9.
Seal all the shingles around the
exterior blower housing or frame,
flashing and mounting screw heads
with roofing cement.

NOTE: If the top and sides of exterior
(17.8 cm)
blower are to be covered with trim:
• Make the electrical connections and
check the blower operation first.
• Do not block vent grill opening with
11" (27.9 cm)
dia. hole
trim. Doing so will decrease blower
performance.
