    Its been my experience that pullers are a waste of time. If the fanblade isnt loose after loosening the set screw I go right to the sawzall. Save yourself the hassle and cut the shaft and tap it out.

    Just take the basement ceiling out of the calculation. To my knowlege you cant even consider it a partition unless the other side is an unconditioned space.

    If you are referring to the ~ 3,300 BTUH sensible gain for the basement ceiling, that would be a mistake by the person that did this heat gain heat loss calc.
