Panasonic WhisperFitDC wiring
I installed a Panasonic WhisperfitDC 110 fan with the humidity sensor built in. The goal being to make sure anyone who takes a shower will automatically trip the fan on. I can not rely on the others in my house to hit a switch manually.
Currently I have it wired for a direct connection to the power source with no switch. My though was that if there is humidity enough to kick it on, I want it on. Well, that was a few weeks ago and it has not shut off but for a few minutes. This is not going well and the divorce attorney said it would be a lot more financially viable to look at a different wiring solution.
The wiring diagram has a switch in the power supply to operate the unit, if I install a wall mounted humidistat switch, does this create a conflict? Do I need to remove that module and replace it?
This unit boasts a 1.2 sones rating. I don’t have a D.B. meter but this 1.2 sones seems pretty loud at 80 cfm. 110 cfm is near mind numbing. Are the units that boast .3 sones (Broan has several) really that much quieter?
