Customer 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. I bypassed the switch so motion or humidity turn it on, but you can certainly use a switch. Motion and humidity will still turn it on, but only when the switch is on.

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.

Can this fan be installed in the wall instead of the ceiling?

It's called a ceiling fan but it looks like it would work in the wall
Asked by: cc
Yes, if you have space in your walls equivalent to the depth of the fan, and obviously you'll need wiring running to it. ANYTHING is possible if you have the time and motivation.

WhisperSense 80 CFM Ceiling Humidity and Motion Sensing Exhaust Bath Fan with Time Delay, ENERGY STAR* is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The hardest part was getting in the attic to line... The hardest part was getting in the attic to line up the ground with the predrilled hole . It's really quiet , love the look, very happy

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.

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!

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall very pleased This is a very nice and quiet fan, the automatic features work very well and it moves a lot of air. The brackets did not work perfectly for installation, but we were able to modify slightly and it was fine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Fan Lousy cover plate design The fan is great. Works as advertised. I like the motion and humidity sensors both work fine. The cover plate design and function are junk..Plan on glueing the cover plate to the ceiling.The flimsy wire support system for the cover plate is pure junk.
