    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great the variable speed is awesome. overpowered if anything. you can turn on full blast or at a slower quieter speed. fully removes all hot moist air from laundry/bath room. con-we have it installed between 2 bathrooms and you can see from one room to the other, needs some kind of screen to stop see through the vents are a little cheap but as long as they aren't messed with should be fine FYI I installed it in a 12" wall with some homemade venting. I just took a sheet of sheet metal and cut it to make a box within the wall and then popped in the fan. took about an hour.

  • My wall is too thick for this fan. 512

    I found out after I bought the fan and fully installed it that my wall is a little too thick for the fan. I can't get the other grill on and I have about an inch of open space around the fan (it's blowing into the wall) Is there a way to get around this without buying a different fan? Thanks, Dan
    Asked by: Dan
    "Use a different unit? " - that doesn't seem too helpful. They don't even suggest another, applicable Broan product? (smh) Dan, I would suggest to measure the ducting and try to find suitable extension with the same diameter at your local parts house. If you cannot find a suitable size, you may need to fabricate one from an oversized piece of ducting with a pair of tin snips and tek-screws. Keep in mind, that you may need to make the extension on both sides to create a good mate between the two halves. I am also struggling to find a through wall fan to fit a 7.5" wall in my shop. You would think Broan would offer an extension duct that they could overcharge us for. have a nice day!

    Can I hook two of these to the same variable speed control switch?

    Wondering if there is any issue with hooking up two of these unit to the same variable speed switch.
    Asked by: FanMan
    Thank you for your question on the model 512 room to room fan. You can control the speed of the 512 with a solid state speed control, but we would only recommend using one fan per speed control.

    Is there a stainless steel option?

    I need a fan like this one to be used outdoors to ventilate an outdoor kitchen that is located in an alcove against a block wall. The fan will be located just above a 75,000 BTU outdoor grill where I don't have enough room for a hood. I like this unit but have two problems with using this particular model. 1) I doubt that this could withstand the heat. 2) it's on an oceanfront property in south Florida that loves to corrode anything that comes in contact with the salt air. Any suggestions?
    Asked by: Tom T.
    Thank you for your question on the model 512. We would not recommend using this unit in an outdoor application. We do not offer a ventilation fan for outdoor use. We would only have our outdoor range hood EPD61 series. This can be seen on the Broan website. For further questions, please contact our Technical Support at 800-637-1453. We would be happy to try to help you more.
