Questions & Answers

Can fan be turned on with Switch?

I was wondering if you have it set to 45% Hum. Can you walk in the Bathroom and flip the switch to turn on the Fan...
Asked by: Lildre
Yes if connected to wall toggle but doing so may negate the purpose and costs of the automatic features including users too lazy or forgetful to turn on the wall switch when using room!

does this fan require 12 or 14 gauge wire?

Asked by: baconbits5
As pl said it only depends on the circuit protection on the wire!

What is the size (diameter) of the exhaust tube we need for this fan? Does it come with the fan?

Asked by: Grace
I believe it's the standard 4" outlet. It does not come with the tube.

Would like to install this fan as a replacement for old fan on 1st floor (so no attic access) which means installation need to be done from within bathroom. Is this possible with this fan?
Asked by: vw4motion
We had a problem with OLD fan housing being too small and this fan's box being larger than usual to install ONLY from below so electricians HAD TO access attic (July heat!) to complete installation. This unit also comes with a steel hanging brace meant to be secured to ceiling joists prior to connecting and hanging unit. The units which go in solely from below, I believe are simpler, cheaper 'update only' units in the $40 range.

WhisperSense 80 CFM Ceiling Humidity and Motion Sensing Exhaust Bath Fan with Time Delay, ENERGY STAR* is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.

Very satisfied so far (installed July '17) I installed this in renter's bathroom of our share. Previously these 3 men were often too lazy to turn on the manual fan when they used the shower or more interested in hearing their phones when using the commode (Wasn't possible with previous noisy, timer controlled fan!) As a result there was noticeable mold buildup in the shower/tub and odors wafting into the hallway which were sucked into the central air intake duct. Since installing this fan the odors go OUT of the house continuously, the mold problem in the bathtub is gone and the phone zombies can achieve both goals in one sitting! No more worry about whether fan is activated at shower time or whether it is running long enough to dry out damp walls before cutting off. Motion control light is NOT too bright (barely noticeable) fan sound is only a low 'whirr' and whole unit seems well constructed. My only minor complaint is that the printing on the humidity sensor and timer controls is in 6 point type or less and requires excellent vision or a jeweler's lupe to read when the grill is down so it's more useful to memorize the settings from the instruction page before going up a ladder to adjust fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I love the motion sensor feature but if I had one con it would be the green flashing light that comes on when the sensor picks up motion. In the dark of the night it is like being assaulted by the green lantern! Haha. If the light would just come on and stay on or if it turned off after a minute, that would be great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Fan! By far the quietest fan in the house. I bypassed the switch, so any movement turns the fan on, and it shuts off after 5 minutes per the timer setting I have set. I have this installed in a 8x13 bathroom. After I shower, not a smudge of steam on the mirror. After my wife showers, there's some steam. So I'm taking colder showers, or my wife is cold, or both. Anyway, back to the fan. It's the best fan I've ever used. Installation was very easy. I highly recommend it.

Installation was a little more difficult than I expected because it was replacing an older burnt out fan. The job required cutting a slightly larger hole than directed plus using 2" x 4" lumber to support the fan. I discovered that the silver j box and vent outlet unclip from the main black body of the fan. The silver part was secured in the ceiling first with vent pipe connected and wiring secured. I was able to push the body of the fan up into the opening and clip into place. Screws into the 2 x 4 then secured the fan. Well worth the effort for the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Fan These things are great. Here in the pacific NW, mold growth is a serious issue at high relative humidity levels. Most folks don't leave their fans on long enough after showers etc. This fan takes all of the human error out of the equation, and runs the quiet fan until the relative humidity is at a safe level. One caveat: If you have high humidity levels due to bulk water intrusion, this fan might just keep running. It is an efficient motor, and will likely help the humidity in the room, but it's not going to fix the problem. That being said, this fan is great.
