Yes, the exhaust can be used without the exterior vent and damper. Depending on your application. However the vent and damper prevents air back flow.

THe exhaust fan requires installation by an electrician or someone who knows wiring. It was a simple connection to an existing kitchen outlet. You will lose heat in cold months. I covered the front [used white polar fleece secured with velcro tabs] and packed the outside fan housing during winter.

I installed this fan in the same place where an older was. Someone install for me. Outside - it has a cover the protects the outside wall but l don't remember it the new fan cames with it or I used the older. This new one is stronger and works better. If you do not have one before someone has to make a hole in the wall kitchen to install it. Outside it looks as small square black box open in the bottom part.. I hope this help you!!

Do I have to buy a separate switch for the fan?

Asked by Bob November 3, 2019
3
Answers

Yes. A simple switch on wall needed to activate fan on and off. Also possible is a timer switch that you can turn to desired timing and will switch it off after time goes to zero

can a length of circular duct be inserted/added to get to the exterior?

Asked by Rubin September 29, 2019

Answers

I'm not sure why you would need extra length as it installs in a wall thickness from 4.5" to 9.5". But because of the outer housing assembly design you can not add and additional length.

Instructions were vague. Not an easy install. When it comes to locking the sliding sleeves together (for wall thickness), you will need to drill holes for sheet metal screws; and it's best to use your own. The provided screws are too short. Don't try and use the channel in the inner sleeve for this connection as the screw heads will hit the fan blades. Fit and finish is a bit less than typical bathroom fans. Noise was acceptable. Recommended with reservations. Hard to find an adjustable thru-the-wall fan, but this one does do the job.

I bought this vent fan. I have it installed for 1 week. I did the installation myself. It works great. It is a little noisy on high but I also installed a variable speed switch so it clears out all of the bathroom shower moisture on its low setting and is therefore very quiet.

Fan is exactly as advertised. Noise level is a bit higher than a standard through the roof bathroom exhaust. I thought 270CFM sounded like a lot of air, and it is noticeably more than, say a range hood, or standard bath exhaust, but its not a gale force wind. In my photo studio makeup room, it moves the hair spray out quickly and no fog buildup during long hot showers. Installation instructions were straight forward for anyone with remodel experience or more. Fan blades are plastic and sized for minimum clearance to housing, which means you have to be careful about how you support the housing because any sag or twist will cause the blades to hit the housing. 4 stars only because it didn't install itself.

I installed this fan in an unheated enclosed 12 x 15 room under my deck, and it works so well that most of the condensation from the hot water is now immediately sucked out even when it is below freezing outside. Definitely a good choice!
