can i use this to ventilate my basement to help get rid of musty smell and get air in

Asked by VinnieFeiner September 17, 2020

I use this fan to pull the dusty air out of an insulated pigeon loft and it works great for that. I hadn't thought of using it for the basement, but I think it would work fine for that. I may give that a try also. Thank you for the idea.

Can this be used to vent 2 bathroom exhast fans out the same roof ventilation cap? Does it turn on/off automaticlly?

Asked by Tw May 9, 2020

It does not have an automatic off and on functionality, you would need to wire whatever it is plugged into to a switch.

Asked by Matt May 1, 2020

When I bought this fan several years ago, it was hard wire. When I replaced it a few years ago, it then came with a plug so that you could just plug it in. If you wanted to hard wire it, you could just remove the plug and connect it up.

Sorry you are unhappy with the DB206C. The fan is designed to be installed 6-10' back from the output register. Distance, elbows, or bends in the ductwork can affect the fans output. If you would like to discuss your specific installation please contact Suncourt at 800-999-3267.

Helps stretch your heating dollar$$$
Many of the older HVAC systems have rooms at the end or the middle of the system that just don't receive enough air (heat/cold) due to many reasons... This simple well built fan will help solve those problems. All you need to do is cut into your 6 inch duct, and screw and tape the fan in place. Then what I did is wired it up using the optional ductstat device which turns the fan on and off as needed so you don't have to think about it, And the switch is low priced enough to be well worth it. I now have a room that is cozy warm and no more family complaints about it being too hot/cold,,,,,,

Good Fan, should come with the DuctStat
This fan is very quiet and fits inline between ducts. It provides a decent boost with a single speed. The free air CFM is 160 and maximum boost is 250 CFM. It has a three prong wall plug which can to be plugged into the optional DuctStat temperature sensitive switch (not included). It would be nice if it came with the switch. Installation is very easy since it comes with one crimped end.

Very quiet. As I discovered, it's very quiet because the motor didn't work once I installed it in the duct. Save the time and money--buy something else.

Does a really good job of pushing air up to second floor. Not as quiet as advertised but not that bad. The noise is the airflow at a high rate of speed. Without it in the heating duct the air just trickles out. My previous Suncourt booster fan lasted 25 year and was a little noisier so I think This is a good bargan.

Hit and miss
I installed three of these to boost the airflow to the three second floor rooms furthest from my furnace (on three seperate duct runs). The fan blade fell out of one, the second made a loud whistling noise and the third just didn’t push enough air. While i could feel a slightly stronger “breeze” from the vents, it was not worth the noise or the headache
by Ty
Response from Suncourt Product ExpertFeb 26, 2021
We are sorry you are unhappy with the result of installing our fans. The whistling sound is usually a backpressure situation in the ductwork. Moving the fan a foot or so down the line will typically fix this. You can also take a rubber headed mallet and lightly tap the duct around the fan. This may fix that as well. If you are still getting poor airflow it may be possible you have the fan installed too far from the register you are trying to boost to. 6'-10' back from the register is optimal. The fan blade falling off should never happen under normal operating conditions. The fan is under factory limited warranty for 1-year from date of purchase. Contact us and we will be happy to replace that fan blade. 800-999-3267 or www.suncourt.com. Suncourt
