Answer: 
There is no specific switch to do that. I guess you could turn the temperature setting all the way down or up, depending on what you are trying to achieve. I am not sure why you would want to use this device if you are planning on bypassing the thermostat function. This is a plug in thermostat device in which you plug in the fan or light or whatever you are trying to control by temperature. If you are Read More

Electrical Draw/Wattage Capacity

This question is from Ductstat Plug-In Thermostat Temperature Sensitive Switch
Asked by
Read all my Q&A
March 20, 2016
Why don't the duct fans this is supposed to control ever list their electrical load/consumption in watts or amps? It would make it safer and easier to make informed design/purchase decisions when considering a thermostatic switch like this and in calculating overall circuit load.

Answer: 
Suncourt (manufacturer) lists the following capacity 120V 60Hz maximum 5 Full Load Amps.
The reason that fans do not specify their load/consumption is that such load is due to the work the fan is doing. Moving air that is unrestricted, including a home house fan, that have virtually no resistance which would therefore not cause the load to increase in use.

The load of a fan is almost totally due to the work needed to spin the fan blades, which is essentially a non-varying fixed value. Many fans will give their watts or horse-power values. Read Less

Thank you for your input. The DuctStat is used with duct fans. It is also used for many other applications. Check with the manufacturer any time you have questions about electrical specifications.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 119 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Plug-in thermostat switch has limited functionality I installed this plug-in thermostat switch with a 10" inline duct booster fan in order to turn the booster fan on and off with the air conditioning. The fan was installed in the attic of my town home in order to provide better HVAC airflow to the 2nd floor. In hot weather, the temperature in the attic ranges from 80's at night to 120 degrees during the day. The extreme temperature variations make it difficult to find a setting for the thermostat that will turn the fan on and off with the a/c. So far the thermostat setting either keeps the fan on all the time or fails to turn it on when the a/c comes on. I have determined that in hot weather, it is advantageous to have the duct fan stay on all the time. When the a/c is not running there is still cool air in the duct work, so having the fan run continuously between the a/c cycles actually helps cool the 2nd floor. I am considering a bluetooth or wi-fi controlled outlet instead of the thermostat. That would allow me to turn the fan on or off with a smartphone rather than having to crawl up into the attic to adjust the thermostat. July 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not working well in attic I installed this thermostat in the attic to turn on my booster fan for the dyer. I've discovered the attic gets too hot and the switch will turn on without the dryer running. Eventually the fan will turn off from the cool air coming from the conditioned space in my house. To alleviate this problem, I turned the temperature control as high as it will go, but now when the dryer is turned on, the air isn't hot enough to turn on this switch. The bottom line is the I wish I had purchased a booster fan that had the pressure sensor in it and not rely on this switch. I also don't like that I had to cut a half inch hole in my duct for this switch. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Other uses! Set up for an outdoor bird cage. The Ductstat turns on a heated perch and a ceramic heat lamp on cold days and nights. Romeo likes it! April 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install and accurate plug-in thermostatic controller The plug-in feature makes installation a breeze for plug fans. The thermostat is very accurate once you've figured out how to set it. Its somewhat confusing on set up. whether to use the cooling scale or the heating scale when setting the on-off temperature.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ductstat Plug-In Thermostat Temperature Sensitive Switch Performs as Specified. I am turning on a fan on a heat temp setting. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best purchase Ever We had an issue with our lower level rec. room being cold. It is around 1000 sq ft. with 4 heat vents that are placed in the ceiling tiles. The heat not only stayed at the top of the ceiling, but also above the ceiling tiles. We placed 4 , 6in in line duct fans in the ducts, then took an 8in in line duct fan and placed it vertical and taped a piece of screen on the intake (back) of fan and placed the output on a ceiling tile, (had to place a piece of veneer wood to support fan, this fan is used to draw the heat out of the ceiling and blow down, we ran extension cords (since these were all corded), and placed the Ductstat on the heat trunk, plugged into the outlet, then plugged a 6 placed power strip into the Ductstat and plugged all the extension cords in, We turned on the furnace, and regulated the temperature on the Ductstat, it ran all the fans perfect. Living in Michigan the winters are cold and our lower level would be in the higher 50's, With the furnace set on 70, the lower level is now a nice 69, It works perfect. The fans run longer once the furnace blower stops, but that's perfect. Keeps the air circulating longer, we have 2 knee walls that are exposed foundation, which we will insulate soon, that also will help in keeping the lower level wonderful too April 8, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk You can adjusted properly so don't put it in the attic because you cannot control the temperature May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ductstat is a winner I looked all over for a device to control the ventilation on our hydroponic garden. This was exactly what I wanted. You can set it to come on in rising heat or lowering cold. It controls the duct fans and does what I expected. Down side is I had to order it, It took too long to arrive. April 26, 2016
