In most cases, a belt-drive fan will keep noise levels slightly lower, and create less vibration which can prolong the life of the unit. The only downside for belt drive is more moving parts(belts & pulleys). Typically the upside of the belt-driven will outweigh the downside to produce a longer lifespan.

Question

can this fan be used with a timer? and is the low/high speed setting a wall switch or a pull chain on the fan itself?

I have a house with an older fan with seperate low/high toggle switch and 12-hour timer in closet wall and on/off switch in another room. I would like to do a similar installation in a another house.

This fan can be used with a timer, however it is not recommended by the manufacturer. The high/low setting is a wall switch. There are two switches. One is a on/off and the other is a high/low.

This fan can not be mounted vertically because gravity would close the shutters and they would not work properly.

To prepare your opening for the Ventamatic Whole House 24" fan the rough opening is 25 1/2 x 27 3/4. The Inside Shutter Dimensions are 23 3/4 x 25 1/2. The Outside Shutter Dimensions are 28 x 29 3/4. DO NOT use the dimension of the fan frame OR the inside/outside shutter dimensions.
