FEATURES
Optimum ventilation performance: Duct length, elbows and other factors increase static pressure which can hinder the performance of most ventilation fans. This fan utilizes Smart Flow microchip technology that monitors the static pressure in the system and speeds up or slows down the RPM of the fan depending upon the amount of resistance within the ducts. This feature allows the fan to perform as rated and avoid potential installation issues.
Outstanding Energy Savings: The WhisperGreen Select® line of fans are built using DC motor technology. The DC motor is 30% - 70% more energy efficient than the minimum ENERGY STAR requirements.
Pick-A-Flow® Feature All the WhisperGreen Select® base models of fans come with Pick-A-Flow® speed options. The Pick-A-Flow®switch on the face of all WhisperGreen Select® fans allows the option to choose 50 ­ 80 ­ 110 CFM for the FV-0511VKS3S, FV-0511VKS3, FV-0511VK3 or 110 ­ 130 ­ 150 CFM for the FV-1115VK3. These fans can run continuously or intermittently, depending upon the needs of the owner.

FV-VS15VK1 Multi-Speed module allows the fan to run continuously at lower speeds to maintain ventilation standards to meet Indoor Air Quality and then boost up to high speed to meet intermittent needs for `Spot' or `Point Source' exhaust needs. The FV-VS15VK1 Modular Component will operate for both the FV-0511VK3 and the FV-1115VK3 matching the appropriate Multi-Speed setting shown below. Multi-speed module FV-VS15VK1 is included for models FV-0511VKS3S and FV-0511VKS3. It is not necessary to purchase this component. Note the options on the face of the FV-VS15VK1 Multi-Speed module to choose appropriate levels of airflow (CFM) and time delay before returning back to low speed (TIME). Choosing the Pick-A-Flow® setting automatically adjusts the Multi-Speed setting accordingly. As an example, if the Pick-A-Flow®Multi-speed setting is 80 CFM, the Multi-Speed settings adjust automatically to be 0, 30, 40, 50, 60 or 70 CFM at the lower speeds. The fan will `boost' to the 80 CFM speed as the high speed setting. Selecting a particular TIME option will cause the fan to run for the selected amount of time before returning to the lower speed setting chosen on the CFM dial.

Delay Time (min)
Factory setting: 20 minutes. Delay Time position "0": Manual wall switch control is 0 minutes; without manual wall switch control is 0.5 minutes.
FV-CSVK1 Condensation Sensor module turns the base fan on or boosts to higher speed when humidity is detected when used in combination with the FV-VS15VK1. The Condensation Sensor works based on calculations from the Psychrometric Chart, or combination of Relative Humidity (RH) and Temperature. This allows the fan to anticipate the formation of condensation and automatically turn ON when needed to expel humid air. The Condensation Sensor is pre-set to run for 20 minutes; it will then check the RH and Temperature to detect if the fan needs to run for another 20 minutes cycle.

This product can set air volume by Pick-A-Flow® switch, set humidity by the induction humidity setting switch, and operate as below.

PRACTICAL GUIDE TO INSTALLATION

1. The ducting has a strong effect on the air flow, noise and energy use of the fan. Use the shortest, straightest duct routing possible for best performance, and avoid installing the fan with smaller ducts than recommended. Insulation around the ducts can reduce energy loss and inhibit mold growth. Fans installed with existing ducts may not achieve their rated airflow.
2. A circular 6-inch duct is recommended for best performance and proper fan installation.
3. Ensure duct joints and exterior penetrations are sealed with caulk or other similar material to create an airtight path and to minimize building heat loss and gain and reduce the potential for condensation.
4. Place / wrap insulation around duct and / or fan in order to minimize possible condensation buildup within the duct, as well as minimize building heat loss and gain.

-4 inch or 6 inch roof jack, wall cap, or soffit vent with backdraft damper
-2-3 ft straight run before elbow

-Mechanically connect duct to termination and seal with mastic or approved foil faced tape* /

-In attic installation, caulk box to drywall*

-Insulation

-Short piece of flexible duct helps alignment and absorbs sound*

-Foil tape tightly covers all metal duct joints* -*Seal with mastic or approved foil faced tape
