I need a switch to come on at a specific temperature, say 75°, to turn on an exhaust fan in a room. How do I set that temperature on this device?
Asked by: Bouser
Yes, this does exactly that. It has dial for adjustment, but there is no readout for it, so you need to adjust as you use it. They give the range on the box and you can set it for turning on when too hot or turning on when too cold. An economical solution to putting in a booster fan. You just need to make sure this box is in the area for where you want the temperature being sensed.

If all the main first floor ducting is in the crawl space, is there any way to use this thermostat with an inline duct fan without having to crawl under the house to switch it?
Asked by: music1
Yes, so long as you can access the duct work at a point that is not in the crawl space. Then I would think putting a switched outlet that you would plug this thermostat into and have the switch at a convenient location from the outlet the switch and thermostat are connected to would serve your purpose.

can this be used with a garage exhaust fan

Asked by: Sfc1
It has to be installed onto a duct to work. It could be used to activate a garage exhaust fan, but only if it was attached to a supply duct or something like that.

I need to turn on a small heat lamp to keep plants from frost damage. Turn on at about 45 degrees and off at about 55 degrees. Will this do it?
Asked by: Doc
No, I don't think this unit will work for that application. It has to be attached to a duct and senses the temperature inside the duct. I think a regular thermostat mounted to a board or something similar is probably what is needed here.

Ductstat Plug-In Thermostat Temperature Sensitive Switch is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 208.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from this unit does not have a thermostat control I bought this item with the understanding that it would control temperature. There is no thermostat in the unit. It does not control temperature by turning on and off as I thought. To be fair I was going to use it in a box to control the temperature and it will not do that. After reading the literature that came in the box, it controls the change in temperature. As it was designed to turn on a fan in a duct to move more air to a low air position (maybe a room in the back of the house), it senses that the air in the duct has gone hot or cold due to the furnace or ac coming on and moving air of a different temperature. It then turns on to move the air until it senses that the heating or cooling unit has turned off as the air in the duct changes temperature again and it turns off until the air in the duct again changes temperature. If this is what you are using it for, it will work for you and is a very nice looking unit. Also, I just saw the same unit in a Lowes add for a lot more $47.00!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great! I wanted a cheap and easy way to cool the components in my entertainment center. Stumbles across this box. Picked it up, installed a small lamp on one end, painted it black, connected it to a fan and placed it on my receiver. Now, after a few minutes, the light comes on (for easy verification, monitoring). Fan switches off after about 45 minutes, after the heat dissipates. Just what I wanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ductstat a great temperature-based controller I bought two Ductstat controllers for a small greenhouse, This is NOT the Ductstats' normal application. One controls an electric heater and the other an exhaust vent fan. However the Ductstat is just an inline 110V temperature sensitive electric switch that can control anything that plugs into it -- fan, heater, lighting, alarm light or horn etc. It can be used to turn ON a device in either of two different modes. One mode is to turn ON a device when air drops to a certain temp and then OFF when the temp goes back up (like my portable electric heater.) The other is to turn ON when temp gets up to a certain temp and then OFF when the temp cools back down (like my greenhouse's exhaust fan in warm weather.) The "delta" between ON and OFF can be set for either a 3 degree change or a 7 degree change. The unit is originally designed to run supplemental duct fans to assist in moving air in long runs from furnace or air conditioner. Because of my greenhouse adaptation, I had called the manufacturer before purchasing about that application and they were very helpful to explain how it could be used in that way and that many of their units are used for that. I also had a question after I received the unit during install about how to set the temp range and they talked me through that. They are obviously proud of their product (made in USA) and very helpful. The Ductstats have worked perfectly for several months, controlling fan and heater in my greenhouse to keep inside temps between 45 degrees and 90 degrees, while the outside temps in Denver varied from a -15 degrees (yes minus) to 85 degrees. I think this is a great product, a real value, and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install This was a fine purchase. I needed to control my duct fan that I had installed for a long run of duct to the far end of the house.This was an excellent solution.The Duct Stat was so easy to install and came with the screws needed. The instructions for the adjustments made the job very simple. The fan now turns on and off just the way that I like it. Clever and easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for the value and different applications I wanted this to keep my egg incubator warm using a light bulb...and to my surprise this worked better than expected. It took some time to calibrate the temperature sensor but once done it actually kept the temperature within 1 degree F of the temperature i wanted...pretty impressive for the price and ease of use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It only does half the job This is a thermostat switch for a fan that is installed inside HVAC ducts. It turns the fan on when it senses temperature change. HOWEVER, it can ony sense the change in one direction; heat, or cold. It cannot function in both directions, forcing it to be re-calibrated seasonally. This product would be far more valuable if it could accomplish both purposes, so it can drive a booster fan whether the heat is on, or the A/C is on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flawed concept This product utilizes an inherently flawed concept. The way it works (per the instructions) is as follows: You set the thermostat so that it just turns off when the duct reaches room temperature. Then, when the furnace blower kicks in and pushes heat through the duct, the thermostat senses the increased temperature and turns on the duct fan. The first problem is that the thermostat does not turn on the duct fan until about 5 minutes after the furnace blower turns on. Sometimes it actually turns on after the furnace blower has already shut off. And then when the furnace blower shuts off, the duct fan continues to run . . . . and run and run and run. It stays on for another 10 to 15 minutes until the duct cools all the way back down to room temperature! So your duct fan is blowing cool air into the room unnecessarily for this extended period. I am going to return the product and connect the duct fan directly to the furnace so that it will go on when the furnace blower goes on and off when the furnace blower shuts off. This product may be fine for other applications, but not for controlling a duct fan.
