    Is there a way to have this wired to a switch, like a light switch that just controls the fan?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 509S through the wall exhaust fan. The 509S is not designed for use above a tub or shower. The 509S does have a built-in on/off switch. The model 509 (without the “S”) is the same fan without the switch and is designed to operate from a wall switch. It's not suggested to install this high CFM fan above the shower because it will pull all the heat from the shower and the occupant will be very cold. Please contact Technical Support for other possible options to adding ventilation to your bathroom. 1-800-637-1453.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 509S through the wall utility fan. The 509S is designed to be hard wired with either 12 or 14 gauge wire. You would need to check your local electrical codes for what is required in your area. We do not recommend wiring it with an electrical cord and plug.

    I intend to connect the fan to an electrical cord with a plug since hardwiring the fan is not possible.

    Should I expect significant backdrafts with the model 506?

    I'm choosing between the 506 and 508. I would like the higher cfm of the 506, but I note the 508 mentions that its damper reduces backdrafts. There is no mention of backdraft on the 506. Does the 506 door allow significant backdrafts?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 506 and 508 Broan fans. The 506 and 508 are designed differently in that one has a door and one has a damper. Both however, are designed to minimize backdrafts into the home once installed.
