Looking for specific attic fan

Looking to install attic-type fan in second story ceiling (house =2100 sq ft). Because most of second story is vaulted ceiling, have to put fan in corner where there is limited attic space (approx 80 cubic feet). Thinking of running 8 feet or so of ducting from intake through attic space, then out roof. Any suggestions for particular fans or advise about installation is much appreciated. thanks!

Here's an example of a ducted whole house fan: Tamarack CQ1100 Ducted Whole Hosue Fan

I've not used that model but in general they are relatively easy to install. You can exhaust them out a side wall or the roof.

Not sure what your climate is, besides hot in summer, but cold winters could have a condensation problem. I will take a pretty good sized duct to handle a whole house fan and it will need to be insulated (if cold climate in winter).
