I normally reccommend installing a Lutron count-down timer with any bathroom fan, set the timer and walk away, no one runs their bathroom fan long enough to evacuate the moisture. If you shower before you go to work, you turn the fan off when you leave. The countdown timer runs for the allotted time and shuts itself off. (If you do this, pay attention to the amperage specs on the switch and match them or it won’t run)
With THIS fan however, you don’t need that at all, it turns itself on when you walk in the room and shuts itself off shortly after you leave, it turns itself on when there is moisture in the air and does not turn itself off until the moisture level is acceptable. A dream! Los Angeles Green Codes require a humidity sensor to manage moisture levels in new bathrooms, this qualifies. Great fan.
We cleaned off the mildew around the time we got this fan installed.No more mildew has grown back and this is usually the worst time of the year for that (Georgia summers). We can now repaint the bathroom and now worry about the mildew coming back. Good buy!

It works great for the humidity control. You can definitely hear it during operation, contrary what some have reported.

The issue I have is the complaints that others have. The fan runs continuous, wasting electricity. Or it shuts off, but then comes on randomly when nobody is in there or there’s nobody taking a shower. I set the humidity sensor all the way to 80% (maximum) and the fan would still come on. So this time I turned off the timer to 0. The motion sensor still kicks it on and it seems to work. The fans work great. We take showers and now the small bathrooms are no longer full of steam that not only causes mold and mildew, but it’s also ruining the paint in the bathrooms. The bathrooms were painted over a year ago and now they are all cracked and need to be repainted. I had to put my foot down and buy these fans. The one in the other bathroom never worked.
The installer commented on how well the construction was of this fan. He said most people put in the cheap, junky fans. I told him that this is not for a rental property. It’s for MY use, and I want GOOD stuff, not junk that has to be replaced. I like how the fan has plastic parts so that the humidity doesn’t rust the whole thing all apart.
If the fan didn’t keep coming on all the time by itself before I set the timer to 0, I would have rated it 5 stars. No fan is perfect. If I had to do it over again, I’d buy this same fan.
