Keeping Cool

March 18th, 2007

My office recently upgraded the MDF room and installed a duct fan and a "Duct Stat TM" in-line thermostat to turn the fan on when the temperature gets too high:


As simple as it seems, I needed a little help getting it set up right, and found these Installation instructions and directions for Duct Stat Plug in Thermostat.

So, here's what I did:

  1. Set power switch to "Auto Cool"
  2. Switched sensitivity to "Max"
  3. Twisted temperature knob until the fan turned on
  4. Twisted it back until the fan turned off again
  5. Finally switched the sensitivity to "Min" so that the fan won't be turning on and off all the time

Let me know if you've had better luck with a different strategy. Thanks!

Power Info:

Thru-wall fan: 29 watts low, 40 watts high
