Asked by dennis March 8, 2018

Hello, Yes this fan can be used to boost an existing exhaust fan. You would normally want it remote mounted away from the existing fan. Thanks, Suncourt

Yes you can mount it in any direction you like and in order for it to push up your damper but must be close to the flapper or damper that you are trying to push open however you also need to make sure that the ducting before and after this area is completely sealed either with tape or Mastic

Why when I activate the fan does the airflow stop

Asked by Mkl September 21, 2017
2
Answers

This truly doesn't make any sense this fan was designed to be tapped into the furnace control board in most cases but you can also put it on a switch if this unit stops when you try to turn it on but runs when it is off, it would appear to be Miss wired

How many cubic feet of air per minute does it move?

Asked by Hack January 8, 2017
2
Answers

Hello, The fan moves 160 CFM free air and 250 max boosted. Free air is if the fan is plugged in and tested with no added pipes or elbows at zero static pressure. Max boosted is the most the fan can boost before becoming an impediment to the airflow. When placed in a duct with an existing airflow the fan boosts the existing airflow depending on the ducts CFM and any resistance to the airflow. For example, if you place the fan in a duct moving 300 cfm it would hamper that airflow. Thanks, Suncourt

Is it moisture resistant?

Asked by Jason December 6, 2016
1
Answer

Hello, It will be fine with normal conditioned house air. I wouldn't recommend it as a sauna, or multi-use shower exhaust. I would suggest calling us at 800-999-3267 to discuss the specifics of your installation. Thanks, Suncourt

Can a 6" to 4" reducer be used with this, without hurting its ability to push air?

Asked by MrBigTool October 26, 2016
1
Answer

Hello, No, a reducer will severely impact the fans ability to push air. I would suggest looking at the DB204C 4" fan if it just basic air movement or a TF104 4" Centrifugal fan if you need a lot more air moved. Please call us at 800-999-3267 M-F 8-4:30 central time to discuss your specific requirements. Thanks, Suncourt

fan speed control

Asked by TS7424 October 23, 2016
1
Answer

Hello, Not enough information in your question to answer definitively. With this fan you can use a solid state fan speed controller to vary the rpms of the fan. Only use that type of variable speed switch. You'll need to see if the switch you are looking at is a solid state fan speed controller. Feel free to call us at 800-999-3267 if you have any further questions. Thanks, Suncourt

My son was having a problem in his rented condo with the air conditioning not reaching his upstairs bedroom. Not being able to actually use the fan "in line" he rigged up a backward vent (shown without the cover) to pull the air to the second story. Worked absolutely beautifully, and it's portable.

NOT A GOOD PRODUCT FOR LONGEVITY OR QUIETNESS: If you don't mind listening to a sort of whistling noise that's clearly audible even from a room on a different floor level, and the fact that these fans tend to burn out after 2-to-3 years of use (running almost continuously for about 3 months each year), then I'd say they're a reasonable purchase (considering that much quieter 6" in-line duct fans with multi-year warranties cost three to four times as much). However, after having gone through three of these Suncourt 6" inductor in-line duct fans over the past 6 winters, and now listening to that very noticeable, irritating whining/whistling sound from the latest one that I just installed a couple days ago, I've decided to spring for a much quieter fan to replace this one...even if I have to pay 4-times the price! BTW, I've had these fans mounted in a closet, attached to steel duct at the intake end and flexible duct at the outlet end, to draw hot air that collects at the ceiling over my wood stove into a cooler room. The ceiling air temps never exceed 100-degrees though...so that shouldn't be the cause of the noisiness of this brand and model fan. I think it's just because it's driven by a cheap, uninsulated/exposed electro-magnetic motor, in contrast to higher-quality/more expensive duct fans that are sealed, permanently lubricated, and offer ball-bearing construction, etc. In short, I guess I've gotten what I've paid for. If you don't mind the noise and frequent replacement factors, it's okay. But I'm not purchasing any more of these.

Response from Suncourt Product ExpertMay 6, 2019
Thank you for your business and we are sorry to hear that our product has not met your expectations. This fan runs at 52 dbA (similar to a desktop computer) and should not produce a whistling sound. It is possible that the placement of the fan could be causing this whistling sound. For example if it is vertically installed and going right into an elbow. We would recommend experimenting with placement of the fan. Suncourt

JUNK! Bought one at HD in Greece, NY and this thing barely moves. About as useless as a computer fan. Barely feel any air coming out of it. Also, you have to hard wire it and the pigtails are very short so you have to have the work box screwed directly to the fan. IF you really want to be serious google search the new style duct fans people are using. I got a "Tjernlund M6" (google that name to see the new style). The one I got is actually TOO much for one duct, so I put a ten dollar speed control switch on it, and with it turned all the way down it's perfect. I have to believe there's something in between the Suncourt junk and the M6 blower. Also that M6 blower has a long power cable on it with a regular plug, which is nice. Gives you more options. I did a double gang work box, one side with the speed control dial, and an outlet on the other side. Hope this helps someone!

Response from Suncourt Product ExpertNovember 18, 2016
Hello Rick,

I am sorry you weren't happy with the DB206. What you found is the difference between an Axial flow fan and a Centrifugal flow fan. For example our DB206 flows 160 CFM in free air, meaning the amount of air the fan can flow by itself at zero static pressure. Our Centrax TF106 Centrifugal fan flows 420 CFM in free air at zero static pressure. As the static pressure increases an axial flow fan airflow will drop off rather quickly while a centrifugal fan can pressurize and flow air at much higher static pressures. Think of static pressure as resistance to airflow. If you have a long duct run or a lot of elbows and restrictions please look at the Centrax Centrifugal fans.
If you have specific questions about which fan to use for your application please call us at 800-999-3267 M-F 8-4:30 central time.
Thanks,
Suncourt Suncourt

works well some extra installation was needed.
This has been running for a few weeks and does fine. Be aware that the crimped end is on the output side of the pipe. My particular installation required the other end to be crimped, and it was simpler to crimp the other end with pliers rather than reverse the fan mounting. I mounted a junction box with self tapping screws on the pipe to connect the fan pig tails with the power wire, which went through a wall switch. It replaced an old unit that moves air from the wood stove room to a bedroom. The old set up did not lend itself to a through the wall kit, so this was a bit of a custom installation.

venting a warm electronics room. The first one did exactly as planned and worked great until it didn't. It lasted 4 days running approx. 6 hours a day. Returned and got # 2. Installed it and turned on. Motor locked up. Wouldn't start. I am not going to try # 3. Install and uninstall are a pain, wires are too short for my circumstance. value good unless you have to replace multiple times, so it's poor quality poor because they obviously aren't good

Does the job
Bought to vent heat out of a server room. Installed so that it could be controlled with a rheostat on an adjacent wall. It worked well and without any issues.
