Customer Questions & Answers

Can this unit be intalled in line with the wiring for a bath light switch without the variable speed switch?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, wired it to an existing receptical but added it's own on/off switch. Fan doesn't really run fast enough to justify a variable speed control.

can this be plugged into a regular outlet, or does it have to be wired into the electric system?

Asked by: Anonymous
This will require an electrical plug in outlet, built inside the wall. Might want an electrician to rough this in for you.

How does the louvered outlet handle cold weather, considering this model for a house in North Dakota.

Asked by: Anonymous
I have mine exhausted into the garage AND I live in a more temperant area, Virginia. In your neck of the woods I would be concerned about back drafts and would probably install a secondary cover over the outside louvers... like the one for your clothes dryer but larger. You could probably construct one yourself out of some scrap plywood and then paint to match siding. But, I'd assume some leakage without additional protection and... any hole in your house will let cold air in... this maybe a little more unless you make an effort to add a little protection.

Hi there. Please help me to make a decision whether this fan is suitable for my purpose.

There is about 3 meters between the kitchen wall and outside.I have already installed galvanized pipe through the wall. The pipes are 4" width. I need a fan to install on the inside edge of my kitchen. Do you think this product is suitable for this purpose? Thanks,
Asked by: Anonymous
Would be perfect - the fan housing is actually made to the specs of 4 inch ducting - i.e. the housing is the "male" width for excepting the pipe

70 CFM Through-the-Wall Exhaust Fan Ventilator is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 63.

Fairly quiet and easy to install, some cut out patterns for the large holes would have been nice. Plastic outside louvers are a joke. They will not stop any wind from getting past and I am not sure how long they will last before being blown off by a strong wind. A plastic lid from a coffee container fit the internal grill, attached with some velcro it stopped the draft. It does as I expected. Not sure it is worth the $46.00 but is the only reasonably priced fan of it's type.

The fan unit is easy to install, but you do need to allow for the small rectangular electrical box the sticks out an inch or so on the side. However, if you cut the round hole with extra clearance, the front mounting screws will have nothing to attach to (the screw holes are very close to the canister hole). The fan works great although it is significantly noisy. I wired it to a mechanical timer switch - switch not included. Keep in mind that a wall fan like this has direct access to the exterior of the house. To cut down on unwanted airflow (and even light) back into the house it would be good to mount some type of hood over the exterior plastic louver cover.

I installed it into the wall between a closet I have my cats' litter pan in and the garage. I installed a motion sensitive switch so made the installation more complicated than most would be. And, the fact that the house is 100 years old added to the difficulty level. But, in the end it all went well and works like a charm. No pet smell in the room or house! Just like you and me when we turn the exhaust fan on in OUR bathroom! Silly, maybe. Works, YES! Easy to install... nothing is easy when you're closing in on 70 years old. After a month or so it still works. Good product and Fast shipping. Much better service than the blue sign competition...

Noise goes to zero at slower speeds. Unfortunately the air moved also goes to zero as the plastic exhaust louvers close completely at about 75% of full speed. The louvers are thin plastic and offer zero thermal blockage. The fan is like having a 6 inch hole in your house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent simple product. Instructions were good, mounted it through the wall above my shower. Fit and finish are pretty good. So far it works flawlessly. It's kind-of noisy, but it's a ducted fan, so that was expected. I coupled it with a timed one touch switch on the wall for energy savings. Very happy with this fan:)

Wiring it is a little bit of a pain in the butt, partly because they don't tell you that you have to push the junction box into position after you install the wall sleeve.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fan for the price Nice fan... Does the job well. It's a bit noisier that I would have hoped, and despite the flaps on the exterior end of the exhaust, it allows a cold draft in, but I'm happy with it overall.

Once I determined that there were no wires or pipes, I drilled a 1/8" hole through the wall, cut two circles per instructions and assembled fan. simple.
