Description for Fantech PB270-2

The key to proper ventilation in over-sized baths is spot ventilation at the source. Fantech has developed its Premium Bath fans so that one fan motor can effectively ventilate several areas of the bath. Small 7" ceiling grilles (with or without lights) can be easily positioned directly over showers, whirlpool tubs, steam showers, toilet or vanity. The fan motor is installed away from the living area for super quiet operation. UL Listed for wet locations.

Includes:

  • 270 CFM Fan
  • Two Ceiling Grilles
  • Two Grille Housings w/ dampers
  • One Y-adapter (4" x 4" x 6")

        My third Fantech Bathroom fan. Installation is simple and straightforward. Easy to attache to existing vents.

        This fan was installed on new construction. Square vents should be an option for this fan.

        I am a home remodeling contractor that has installed several Fantech systems. These unitis are very quite and ventilate better than any type fan system I have ever used. My customers rave about Fantech products. They are simply the best on the market in my opinoin.

        I needed to vent 2 bathrooms. This product enabled me to kill 2 birds with 1 stone. Quick delivery, easy installation and a great product: Quiet and powerful exhaust.

        These fans are quiet, efficient, and move plenty of air. First time I have installed remote fans and I thing it is a better way to go.

        This fan sucks! (That's a good thing)

        Comments about PB270-2 Premium Bath Fan w/ Dual Grille, Uses 4" & 6" Duct (Vent Only):

        I installed this fan unit for a customer that wanted two old bath vent fans replaced. The bathrooms are back to back, so this fan made sense. The install was fairly simple with easy to follow instructions. When I did the "kleenex trick" to show the customer the fan was sucking, it pulled the tissue out of my hand a couple inches from the grill.

        I wish the grill covers were also square. I had to make two new penetrations in the ceiling and patch the holes left where I removed the old fans.

        Other then that, this fan unit works awesome. Wish I had one in my bathroom.

          How do I control the fan if using in two separate bathrooms that are installed next to each other?

            A:

            I puzzled over this one for a while, but I finally realized the two switches (one in each bathroom) need to be wired in parallel. See this link for a diagram: http://www.electricaltechnology.org/2012/11/how-to-wire-switches-in-parallel.html
            I used a timer switch that allowed 10/20/30/60 or Hold (on like a light switch) in each bathroom. It may require a little rewiring and if you have any doubts, call an electrician.
            The switches are set up so that as long as either one is on, the fan is on. If someone's in the shower in one room with the timer on 30 minutes and someone else has the other timer on 10, then the fan will stay on even when the 10 minute timer goes off in the one room. When the other timer goes off after 30 minutes, in the other room, the fan goes off.
            The timers have a light to tell you they are on. Sometimes those remote fans can be very quiet. You can use plain switches, but having a light on it when the powers on is helpful.
            Good luck.

            I wired the fan using a three way switch in each room.

            A:

            You can make a dual control for this fan. Assuming you are simply
            switching them on and off (no timer): Make it a 3-way circuit so
            changing the position of the switch in either bathroom will turn it on
            or off. You would do this the same way as a light controlled by two
            switches. You can get help with this in any hardware/home supply store.
            If you want to use timers, it is a little trickier... You would install
            a timer in each bathroom that either will turn the fan on. They would be
            wired in parallel so if either timer turned the fan on, it would
            operate. You would not be able to turn it off from the other bathroom.
            There are some important rules to this because you will be back-feeding
            the other switch when one room turned the fan on. That is a very unusual
            wiring situation that could be dangerous to someone working on the
            wiring (not during normal operations of the fan). You would have to make
            absolutely sure both timers were on the same circuit (controlled by the
            same single circuit breaker). This arrangement would have the fan
            operating if either timer was turned on. One note on this setup is to
            make sure the timers will work OK when there is a backfeeding situation.
            Many of the new electronic timers will probably not work. The best thing
            would be the old fashioned twist timers. Basically, you will be
            installing each timer as if it was controlling the fan and simply wiring
            them both to the same fan. The same hardware/home supply store can help
            you with the wiring instructions for this.
            Hope this helps.

            A:

            You can turn the fan on from either bath. (Wire in parallel) However, the fan will run as long as either one or both fan controls is activated. If you want individual control (on and off) you would have to purchase another system. They are available but more expensive.
