can you use a timer with this unit ?

Asked by: RS
For sure. I purchased the in-wall Digital Timer by GE from Home Depot on-line. Home Depot stores carry the exact same unit for a few $$ less (it's cheaper as it does not have a cover plate). I had to purchase on-line as the store had sold out.

WhisperWall 70 CFM Wall Exhaust Bath Fan, ENERGY STAR* is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 27.

Installed two of these into bathrooms where there was no crawl space over ceiling, so we had to go with wall units. Runs really quietly, we are very pleased about that. On the other hand, makes it difficult to tell how well it's working, almost thinking if it's not making a great noise, then it can't be moving that much air. We installed them with the automatic switches that shut the fan off in 30 minutes, so you can turn the fan on and leave the room to air out. Overall we are pleased with the fans and will no doubt use them more and more as we get used to having them there to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fan, worth every penny! I purchased this fan in order to complete insulation work on my home, since my house was too tight ventilation-wise. The ceiling joists were perpendicular to where a vent would work, so when I found this option, it made sense. The biggest problem with this unit is that you need to cut out about a 8.5inch hole into the house. It is not the standard 4/6". Also, this fan can work above the tub/shower as long as it is connected to a GFCI protected circuit. This feature alone makes it easy to pull any steam in the bathroom. I read other reviews online saying that this fan drafts. However, I live in New England and the temps have dropped to single digits, and I haven't experienced any real problems with drafting. Perhaps the person complaining did not install correctly. I hadn't even caulked it or insulated it. I'm waiting until spring. The metal flap does a decent job of keeping cold air out, and this thing is very quiet. You can just barely hear it running. This fan is considerably more money than the others, but the performance and it's 3 year warranty more than make up for it.

The name fits the performance - this fan is so quiet that you'll barely notice when it is on. I'm doing a full bathroom remodel, and the old fan was very loud, so a new fan was a priority. I researched the noise levels and how fans are rated, then found this fan on Home Depot online. My contractor said Panasonic makes a quality product, and as it was through the Home Depot, so I could easily return it if necessary, I bought it. It was delivered very quickly, and the contractor said it was easy to install. I am very happy with this product and highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Efficient bath fan I debated whether to rate this fan with 4 or 5 stars mainly on the appearance. It sticks out a few inches from the wall with a bunch of stickers showing on the bottom edge. But it works really well and I can remove the unimportant stickers, so sticking with 5 stars. I am not handy so I hired an electrician which was costly since the former fan was smaller. But totally worth not having a fan that sounds like a jet engine. This one is so quiet I double check to make sure I turned it on.

Although the range hood pulls most of the odors out during cooking, some escape and linger for hours. Because it only extracts @ 70cfm, can leave the wall unit on for an hour or more after cooking ends. Unit is proving also useful to remove humidity after water-mopping my vinyl floor. Fan is very quiet and works beautifully! Paired it with an in-Wall Digital Countdown Timer Model # 202788262, also from The Home Depot. The latter works beautifully too; the pairing is perfect as timer has six settings ranging from 5mins unto 4hrs. Only downside was that I had to purchase a jigsaw to cut the vent hole in the siding! The Makita 4329K (also from The Home Depot, where else?) handled very well and cut the hole easily.
