A: This unit can be set to an on/off switch. We recommend consulting a licensed electrician for any electrical questions.
A: The unit is designed to be hard wired. I suppose you could add an extension cord to plug it into the wall, but I would recommend hard wiring it with an on/off switch. My fan was a replacement that I mounted over a louvered vinyl gable vent.
A: The vinyl gable vent will stay open all the time where as the louver gable vent is designed to close by gravity when the fan shuts off. This fan is also hardwired and not intended to be plugged in. The feed wire would go into the box with the thermostat switch (the box at the end of the whip you see in the picture. However, if you choose to install a cord with an AC plug on the end of it, it could be made to ' plug in'.
A: We recommend using our louvers because they work to let no access debris and protect from the elements. No, this unit does not plug into a wall outlet, it is wired directly.
A: This does not have a basic two prong power cord. It has wires that can be connected using twist wire connector. If you use zip cord and run it to a wall socket, especially down through the wall, it probably is not acceptable. An electrician should wire it up properly with the correct wires to electrical box.
A: It has an automatic thermostat you set. When it hits that temp it turns on. When it's cooler it turns off.
A: YES..you set it for what temp.
A: Yes it does. It is thermally activated and you can adjust the on/off setpoint.
A: The thermostat on the fan works very well very easy to install
A: You can set this unit up with one of our thermostats.
A: It is pretty flimsy and rattles and vibrates. We can hear it above my office ceiling. The thermocouple seems to work fine. Shuts off when the temp drops to setting comes on when the temp gets up in the morning. Pay higher and get a more solid unit.
