Ask a Question
  • can you purchase with a thermostat?

    You can use a thermostat with this exhaust fan. You will need a thermostat that can be plugged into since this fan has a cord and plug installed.

  • I am looking for a fan of this size (cfm) but need to mount it horizontal. It will face with the shutters down. I don’t need shutters on it either. Will this fan work or do you have other recommendations? Thanks

    Thank you for your question.  These units, as well as most of our panel style fans, are meant to be mounted vertically in a wall (thier bearings are only meant to run in this orientation).  However, a small, whole house fan may work for your application.  They are mounted horizontally, and are very quiet and efficient. Here is a good option that closely matches the CFM of this unit -

  • Just to be sure, I want to window mount this (I'll have to build a frame), so it needs to be able to handle rain. I will not mount any type of hood on the exterior, so I wanted to make sure this will handle rain. If not, is there another 20" fan you would recommend? Is this returnable? Thanks.

    Thank you for your question.  Yes, the shutters on this fan will keep out rain from a typical weather event.  However, if there are very strong prevailing winds or driving rain, there is a possibility that the shutters blow open since they are gravity operated.  These items are not returnable as they are built-to-order.  One other option is to purchase the following.   It will require a relay to be wired up with the fan and shutter to operate in tandem.

    Panel fan like this -

  • What is the cam and rpm of the 3 speeds

    Low CFM is 1277 / Medium CFM is 1744 / High CFM is 4220

  • Can fan be used for 3000 cubic foot woodworking shop?

    This fan may produce too much CFM on high for a shop of this size.  It can be ran at lower speeds that should work for this application.

  • Please advise how many amps is required to operate this fan on high speed.

    This fan runs at 1.5 full load amps

  • Can you use a fan contro speed switch with this fan?

    No.  The 3 speed control is built into the fan itself.

  • What is the sone rating on this fan?

    Unfortunately, this fan manufacturer (J&D Mfg.) does not offer sound level ratings on their fans at this time.

  • Can this fan be mounted vertical with shutters up?

    This fan is not designed for horizontal mounting (shutters aiming upward), due to shutter chatter.  This fan is designed for vertical or wall mount.
