A: This fan was purchased for a shed application. It moves a lot of air and runs quietly, although I can’t tell you the decibel level. The mfg’s website might have those details, or it may be listed in the box in the store.
A: Noise level is not that loud but depending up on wher it is located
A: It's loud if you're in the attic while it is running. Mine is in my garage attic and when I am in the garage with it running it is very quiet. I just hear a soft humming.
A: I don't know exactly what you mean by explosion proof but the fan is all encased in a guard. The only thing not encased is the motor.
A: I think it is not
A: No. The NEC requires "listed" equipment to be installed in hazardous locations. An explosion proof fan will cost at least 10x more than this. Please see #6 of the manufacturers safety instructions. http://ilivingusa.com/manuals/ILG8SF18S.pdf
A: Probably the best answer would come from the manufacturer. Suggest you contact H/D and see if they can give you the info. . . This will depend on many things as far as noise is concerned. The noise of a three blade fan is somewhat high when there is not enough of an opening for the air to get through. If you are using this to evacuate air, there will probably be more noise than if used to obtain air. Just make sure you have enough of an exhaust/intake ratio to satisfy the amount of air you want to move. . . Sorry I can't be more help. . . . .
A: The cutout diameter is 19 inches.
A: Yes it will. You need a minimum of 18-1/4" square opening.
A: Yes it will.
A: No, this will not work for your living room.
A: It would be too loud in a living room.
A: Definitely! My shop is 40x60 and I installed the fan to exhaust hot air and reduce the humidity because I have no end to end ventilation. It's still hot in there but the reduction in the humidity and a floor fan makes all the difference.
A: Any refrigration coil snser thermostste with 15 amps/115 volts ac rating
A: NuTone, the fan company, used to make an adjustable on-off temperature switch, rated at 5.3 amps. I don't know if it is still made, but the switch I installed for an attic exhaust fan 20 years ago has never given me any trouble
A: Hi Loui, for this Shutter Fan, if ordered on Homedepot.com, will be purchased and shipped as it appears on Homedepot.com. We are not able to make changes to the product and do not offer the shutter by itself. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot!
A: I asked this question some time ago for myself, and they said they did not have a vendor for a shutter. . . Suggest you contact a HVAC company and see what they say if you want an automatic, other wise a carpenter can fabricate one for you. . . .
A: I am not understanding why you need a shutter on the other end. I have a louvered opening to the attic on the gable end of my house and also added 5 Soffit vents under the eves on the side of the house.
A: Hi Odiesdad, we do not offer an additional shutter option for the 5000 CFM Power 30 in. Single Speed Shutter Exhaust Fan on Homedepot.com. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot!
A: Reply to Gene:: The apartment building we are in does not have soffets. Only small vents at each end. We live in Mesa AZ and the temps are about the same as Phoenix. HOT!! Living on the top floor, 3 floors, we get the heat as much as anyone else. I am trying to convince the "powers that be" that they could save a few thousands of dollars on HVAC by going to attic ventilation. There are twelve of these types, 3 floors, and 6 of the 2 floor types. If they put 5000 CFM fans in, there must be an exhaust of the same amount at the other end. That is why I asked if H/D sold a matching relief device. Thanks for your answer. . . . . .
A: Forgive me if this is a duplicate answer. There is no sound Db listing in the specs that I received. However, when I turned the fan on the only sound is from the blades, and it does move a lot of air. I certainly wouldn't consider it loud, not much more noisy than a big ceiling fan.
A: I couldn't find anything in the specs I received but on turning it on, other than the actual blade sound (it does move a lot of air), it was not loud at all.
