Default Attic fan, possible short?

Hey guys, new here, I have a question concerning a attic fan, I lived in this home I'm in now for almost 2 years, I had a electric problem, electrician came out and said too many "outlets" were on one circuit, and he advise me he could re-wire some outlets *which he would've charged me over 1000 bucks, I informed him that I didn't have it and he marked the ones that are on the same circuit so I wouldn't forget and wouldn't plug too much stuff in them, It's doing fine as is but one day I would like to get that fixed. I know what I just stated seems to have nothing to do with my next question but considering the problems I did have, brings me to the topic at hand, It's summer time in Alabama (well almost) got a window unit, and I have a Attic Fan, (On it's on Breaker/Circuit) would turning that on have any negative side effects on my electric? i.e send surges? Thanks guys

Too many variables, not enough info. Does the fan work? What makes you think it has a short? Call a different electrician.
