Heating and A/C would be the normal contractor for this - could run from as little as around $75-125 (typical range for service call labor) and a sawbuck or two for materials for a simple wiring problem, blown thermal protector, starting condensor, etc - to a couple hundred $ materials and perhaps as much as that again in additional labor if the entire unit needs replacement because the bearings went out and the motor burned up and the fan blades were damaged striking the protective cage when the bearings went, but usually probably (assuming decent attic access) typically in the $150-300 range.

I have even seen a couple that larger whole-house fans that totally self-destructed when the bearings failed and literally tore the unit out of the wall. - this after the homeowner said - oh yeah, it has been squeeking and then howling for a number of months, but I thought it just needed a bit of oil but I never got around to it ...
