If you are installing external
blower on a flat roof:

(85.1 cm)
discharge side
of blower
2"
27"
(5.1 cm)
(68.6 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 ring 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, flashing sheet,
and mounting screw heads or frame with
Page 4
roofing cement.
Top and side flanges of the back plate
may be covered with trim. It is
recommended that electrical connection
be made and checked first. Do not block
7"
the vent grill opening at the bottom of
(17.8 cm)
the trim. Doing so will decrease blower
performance.
