Questions & Answers

will it work as a supply fan wall mounted ?

will it work as a supply fan wall mounted ?
Asked by: Jose
Update to my previous answer: Another way to get the bottom 1/2 of the louvres to shut with a wall installation is by getting a small spring from a hardware store and using it instead of a counterweight. You will have to buy a few different springs, find the one that provides just enough tension to close the louvre when the fan is off and still allows the louvre to open when the fan is running, and then return the other springs. I also tried this myself and it works.

Can you install this fan on a wall instead of a ceiling? I have vaulted ceilings, so ceiling mount won't work for me.

What is the minimum thickness when installed? I have a ceiling rafter that will make for a tight fit. I see 11 inches height listed, but wonder if that accurately reflects the thickness of the corner to the inside face of sheetrock.
Asked by: kw
The fan needs to go in the ceiling Joist. It cannot go in the rafter because there won’t be enough space to evacuate the air. If you have space in between the ceiling joists and the rafters, as you do in most all trusses, you can mount this fan even in between 2 x 4 or 2 x 6 ceiling joists.

The install instructions were easy to follow. The tools required were normal household tools. Adding the auto timer switch with the Hi/Low speed switch was a good combination. The install went well and the fan louvers work great. would recommend the fan to all interested.

And a nice surprise was it came with two rocker switches, one for on off, and one for high and low settings. The reason I didn’t give it five stars is there was no sleeve to hold the wires for the wires going from the motor itself to the wall switches.
