  • Ventilate your home intelligently.

    BROAN SmartSense® is the smart choice to meet local and whole-house requirements of ASHRAE Standard 62.2* and other related guidelines (including building codes derived from the ASHRAE standard). Up to ten fans can be installed on one BROAN SmartSense Ventilation System.

    Why do I need to ventilate all day?

    Proper ventilation exhausts stale air and replaces it with fresh air. This minimizes mold and mildew growth, and helps remove gases and particles not trapped by filtration units. This automatic ventilation solution reduces indoor pollutants such as household cleaners, VOCs, carbon monoxide, and off-gassing formaldehyde from building materials, carpets and other furnishings.

    Installs as easily as an exhaust fan.

    Simply recess the fan housing in the ceiling, vent with 6" duct to the outside and connect the power wires. No separate control wiring is necessary. Then, program the controls to match the size of the home.

    • BROAN SmartSense® automatically coordinates the operation of ventilation fans, running them intermittently throughout the day when necessary
    • Six-inch ducting guarantees sound and CFM performance ratings
    • Install in any room - BROAN QT Series Ventilation fans are barely audible, so they can be used in any room
    • Engineered for continuous, energy-efficient operation
    • Ultra-silent operations: <0.3 Sones
    • Designed to work with BROAN automatic make-up air dampers:
      • SMD6
      • SMD8
    • Make-Up Air Damper Application Guide available
    • Can be used to comply with ASHRAE 62.2 and CALGreen

  • how do we adjust this so it does not turn on/off by itself?

    It's existing and the M Bath fan comes on for 8 min; off 15 or so. They just want it to be &quot;on/Off&quot; at the switch. What all will we need?

    Should the control swich be in the on position at all times for the fan to turn on/off automatically?

    Asked by: Baxter
    Thank you for your question on the SSQTXE080 SmartSense ventilation fan. You will use the wall switch just like you would for any other fan. You will turn the switch on when you want to turn on the fan. The LED light on the switch will turn on. You will turn the switch off when you want to shut the fan off. The LED light on the switch will turn off. If you have further questions, please contact our Technical Support directly at 800-637-1453.
