    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 pull chain through the wall fan and 508 wall switch operated through the wall fan. The 506 does tend to seal better than the 508 to help prevent back drafts.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 508 through the wall fan. This fan is designed to be installed in exterior walls that are 4-1/2” to 9-1/2” thick. It has a bladed fan that pulls the air over the motor and to the outside. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question regarding the 509 exhaust fan. Please make sure that the outside damper is opening when you turn the fan on. If the motor appears to be running slow, you will need to replace the motor. The part number for the motor is 99080180. You can order it from the “Shop for Parts” link on the top of our webpage.

    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.

    Answers

    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.
