Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy for light and fan combo There was a defect in an originally received switch, but, Broan delivered an immediate replacement. This switch is rated for 6 Amps and provides a variable speed control for the larger, residential or light commercial exhaust fans. it has the convenience of operating a live, full power, line when the switch is activate, so you have one line and one variable speed line coming from the same switch. ...Handy for those light and fan combo units. Because of the 6 Amp capacity, the switch is a bit large and extends out from your normal electric box by about 5/8". For this reason, I would suggest this be installed in a stand alone box, when laying out the wiring. Overall, nice product, at a great price on Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not quite 5-star, but much better than 4! This control installed easily and works well. I love having the ability to choose the exact fan speed that I want, rather than only having a few pre-set choices. It's not ugly, but it could be a little more refined looking for residential applications. I had a question about whether it would work with our fan mode, and Venting Direct was prompt with their response. It shipped quickly and was well packaged. Another great shopping experience with the Network!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Install, Great Option Installed in series with the Broan 350 roof mount attic ventilator. The 350 is designed for 1050CFM but my application in a small greenhouse had an intake rated for 550 CFM. The 72W allowed using the 350 by controlling the speed. Result is well controlled greenhose and quiet fan operation.
