Hanahan, S.C.-based Aero Pure Fans has introduced a new bath fan line the company says features cyclonic technology that is more advance than anything else on the market.
“The Aero Pure Extractor Fan with Cyclonic Technology is an energy-efficient alternative to traditional ventilation and is designed to reduce humidity and moisture, and remove obnoxious odors and gases, allergens, and dust particles,” the company says.
Cyclonic Technology, president Ted Johnson said at the recent Remodeling Show, forces air out the sides of the fan and down along the wall of the room, capturing 10 times more contaminated air than traditional exhaust fans. The contaminated air is then pulled up into a tight vortex in the center of the fan and quickly removed via ductwork to the outside.
It improves “the indoor air quality in your bathrooms and laundry room—anywhere excess moisture, smelly odors and gases, and mold and mildew build-up are a concern,” the company says.
The fan is quick and easy to install for both remodeling and new construction projects, the company says. Weighing 5 pounds, it installs from below the ceiling in the room. “If remodeling, use existing 3- or 4-inch ductwork, wiring, and wall switch,” it says. “It covers any opening 9.5 by 9.5 inches or less and may be used to replace any manufacturer's exhaust fan in under 30 minutes.”
The housing fits 2x6 or 2x8 construction, comes in satin nickel and white, operates at 1.9 sones, and comes with a detachable 3- and 4-inch round duct connector. It comes with a built-in backdraft damper to prevent air loss.
