Attached garages are a source of potential airborne contaminants including carbon monoxide, gasoline vapors and fumes from stored auto, lawn and garden products. Garages lacking proper ventilation can be extremely hazardous for a home and the occupants. The Garage Fan Contriller is a simple, flexible and economical solution for optimal garage fan control.
The Garage Fan Controller has the ability to control fan ventilation based on two factors: a set DELAY time and/or a set TEMPERATURE.
When a door is opened, the Garage Fan Controller will turn on the exhaust fan and continue to run after the door is closed until it has met the needs of the set DELAY time. The Garage Fan Controller can also be programmed to turn on the exhaust fan when a set temperature has been reached.
An unlimited number of doors can be hooked up. The Garage Fan Controller comes with two door switches. Additional door switches can be purchased.
