  • can it be used to exhaust air from steam room?

    Asked by: deg
    Unfortunately, we do not have a ventilation fan that can be recommended for a steam room. Please contact our Technical Service department at 800-637-1453 for further questions or assistance.

    What controllers can be used with this?

    I would like to have humidity or motion sensor in each of the bathrooms what controls do you have or can recommend for this?
    Asked by: Rich
    The DH100W doesn't apear to have remote sensor option. Since it is basically acting as single pole switch I don't think you can just wire a bunch of these into the 120V circuit either.

    How do I control the MP100 in multiple bathrooms?

    I would like to use the MP100 to ventilate two bathrooms, each 50 SF. What is the recommended method of controlling from from two locations? The installation guide only gives the scenario where one ON/OFF switch is used but there should be one in each bathroom for point-of-use control.
    Asked by: Rick
    I must respectfully disagree with customer service. For the proposed installation (multiple bathrooms, each able to turn on the fan), simply wiring standard SPST (typical on/off, or timers) switches in *parallel* will do what you want: (a) if *anyone* turns it on, the fan starts (b) it won't turn off until the *last* switch has been turned off. You will still have to educate your family, since each user will need to turn their switch "on", even if the fan is already running (otherwise it may magically turn off in the midst of their shower).

    Can I connect a kitchen hood, two bathrooms and a powder room on one in-line fan?

    Asked by: MG
    Thank you for your question on the model MP280 multi port in-line fan. The MP280 is designed to exhaust up to four different areas at a time. Please remember that when the MP280 is turned on, everything that is connected to the fan will be venting at the same time. The MP280 is rated at 290 CFM and when used with four inputs, each one of the inputs would be pulling approximately 72 CFM.

    I have installed a MP280 and it's connected to 4 bath fans. What will be the average CFM coming from each grill for each bathroom?

    Asked by: James
    Thank you for your question on the model MP280 multi-port in-line exhaust fan. The amount of CFM from each bathroom would depend somewhat on the ductwork type, size, length and number of elbows, but in general you should see about 70 CFM from each bathroom.
