I don't know exactly what you want, but for a 4" x 4" 120VAC fan, you'd be

because, for example, a 3 3/8" square fan 120VAC costs $5.95...

Their website has access to a complete list, which has dimensions, CFM,
noise (dB), bearing/sleeve, connection, approval (UL), weight and price.

They also have fan covers, which cost about $1.00-$1.25 each.

they were saying! :)
