Questions & Answers

Can this be installed with no access from above?

Can this be installed with no access from above?
Asked by: Confused
No. You need the wiring from “above” and will also need to run the exhaust line to an acceptable gable vent or eave vent.

How do I turn off the motion sensor? I only want the humidity sensor to turn on the fan.
Asked by: nathan2c
I do not believe you cannot turn off the motion sensor. Even though the emotion sensor has a "zero" time setting, the fan will still go on when motion is detected but, that zero time setting will only enable the fan to go on for less than one minute. I did not connect mine to a wall switch, so I set the motion to a very short cycle. I have read of some individuals indicating that you could tape over the sensor or leave in its shipping packing in place and just leave tucked up. I did not try that so i can't say, plus you should check for any safety/electrical issues if you follow that route. If you hook to a wall switch, problem solved. Also, if you have someone install and you wish to vent to the eve, make sure the installer points the exhaust to the eve. motion in the hall and air circulation will set off the sensor.

Switch or no switch?

Can this unit be installed also with a wall switch or is it only designed to be operated via the motion sensor?
Asked by: Mark
It can be installed either way. I used a switch because the circuit the old fan was on had a switch. I can see that it can easily be installed without a switch as well. Its a matter of trust on whether you trust the motion sensor and humidity sensor to work properly all the time.

How the sensor activate if the switch is off, or need a second switch

Asked by: Gus
For the model that has the humidity and motion sensor (no heater), there is only one set of power lines to hook up to this fan, so a second switch would do nothing. You can have one switch to turn on the fan OR you can just leave it on all the time and have the motion sensing and humidity sensing automatically turn itself on.

The fan is extremely quiet and moves more air than the existing fans. Plus, the motion and humidity sensors are a terrific feature. We are now aggressively replacing old fans with this fan.

This fan has a lip all the way around it and that lip is meant to go between the joist and the sheet rock. It was nice that they give you a template to cut a hole in the sheet rock, but you can't insert the fan into that hole from below because the exhaust port goes a couple of inches wider than the lip. I used a hammer to pound the lip between the sheet rock and joist after installing from above, but it wouldn't go that far in. My old fan and sheet rock hole was right against the joist, so I couldn't just put the hole 3/4" to the size of the joist because it was already against the joist. Once I installed it, it runs quietly and is seems to do an adequate job. It is quiet. The sensor does NOT seem to emit any light that I could see when the lights were off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not bad... Better off with the FV-05-11VKS1 same features but with a night light and variable speed for $50 less. Not as quiet as advertised, more like 3 sones than 0.3 sones. Going to return it.

We increased the humidity setting and now the fan works as expected. Still not sure how its going to be while showering because we don't have the mirrors back in yet. That will tell the story. May have to change the humidity setting again. Trial and error. Fan is very quiet.
