Broan SSQTXE080 80 CFM SmartSense Fan with Control

Broan SmartSense Intelligent Ventilation System:

The intelligent fan control system creates an integrated residential exhaust ventilation system using Broan's industry leading ventilation control technology and award winning QTXE fans. The Broan SmartSense system uses Broan's Link-Logic control technology powered by INSTEON, a powerful communication technology to monitor everyday manual fan usage throughout the home. Broan SmartSense calculates additional ventilation required by Green Building and ASHRAE Standard 63 related requirements and automatically controls installed fans to achieve proper ventilation. These SmartSense fans can provide a single fan solution for small apartments or mix and matched for a custom, integrated ventilation system.

With the Broan SmartSense ventilation system, you will improve air quality throughout the home automatically and efficiently - a smart solution to home ventilation. The Broan SSQTXE080 will remove pollutants such as household cleaners, VOC’s, carbon dioxide/monoxide, and off-gassing from building materials, carpets and other furnishings from your home. This ventilation system is programed for a single control for a ventilation rate to match the size of the home. This fan automatically adjusts it's operating time based on square footage and number of bedrooms. The SSQTXE080 ventilation fan optimizes energy usage by monitoring normal fan operation and adjusting automatic ventilation time as needed. Broan SmartSense is designed to monitor and as necessary, turn on the Broan SmartSense® systems located in different locations within the home – day and night. The SmartSense ventilation fans do not require any additional wiring, as this control operates over the existing wiring in your home The existing home power wires use less than 40 watts during ventilation cycles – in most installations

Broan offers the quietest products in the industry with the most stylish options for your home. The QTXE line represents the ultimate in bath fan solutions for today's homes. Whether you select a fan or a fan/light version, the QTXE line brings simple elegance to any bath or powder room. Whether by sight or by sound, you'll barely notice the QTXE line. Except, of course, when you need just the right amount of ventilation and light at the touch of a switch.

Calculating CFM for your needs:

One of the main questions you may have when looking at a fan is how many CFM fan should I purchase? Broan provides you with a quick guideline. If your room is under 100 square feet, the HVI recommends ventilation of about 1 CFM per square foot. If your room is over 100 square feet it is a little trickier. You can take the number of bathroom fixtures and add them up to get the total ventilation rate:

  • Toilet 50 CFM
  • Shower 50 CFM
  • Bathtub 50 CFM
  • Jetted tub 100 CFM

If you would like to calculate the exact CFM requirements for the size of your room, calculate the cubic feet of your room by multiplying the length, width and ceiling height of your room. Once this is calculated, multiply by .13 and round up to the next “ten." Broan provides you with two examples:

  • Example 1: Bathroom with 8' ceiling: 7' wide x 9' long x 8' high x .13 = 66. Select a bath fan with at least 70 CFM.
  • Example 2: Bathroom with 9' ceiling: 10' wide x 9' long x 9' high x .13 = 105. Select a bath fan with at least 110 CFM.

One last thing to consider when selecting the CFM of a fan is the length of the duct runs and duct-work that turns before it reaches the exterior vent. If your airflow is restricted in any way, you will need a little additional CFM. Just as a car must slow down for a sharp corner, air decelerates when going through a turn in a duct run. It is important to have straight duct runs when possible and always use large radius turns, if you must have a turn. Rigid duct-work is optimal because airflow restriction is minimized. Flexible tubing may be convenient to install, but resistance is created as air is moved over the spiral metal frame of the tubing. With long duct runs or ducts with multiple turns, the fan works harder, noise increases, and fan performance (CFM) is compromised. Select a fan model with an even greater CFM ratio to compensate.

Blower Motor:

The Broan SSQTXE080 is designed to be vented through the roof or wall. The motor assembly equipped in Broan fans are designed to be plugged in, not hardwired, and completely removable making repair extremely simpler. The motor is permanently lubricated meaning you will not need to have oil on hand to maintain your bath fan. The blower motor is polymeric. The blower motor is designed so that is can be easily removed and replaced if necessary. If the motor starts to make excessive noise, just replace the motor assembly. You can help extend the life of your bathroom exhaust fan motor by cleaning the polymetric blower wheel periodically with a vacuum.

Housing:

Broan doesn't just stop their innovative designs at the motor they take the entire assembly into account. The housing is a rugged, 26 gauge, galvanized steel construction providing excellent corrosion resistance. This housing features sturdy key-holed mounting brackets for easy installation. The tapered polymeric, 6" duct connector with tapered sleeve means you will not be bothered by the metallic clatter of a metal flapper. The housing included with this fan can be installed in ceilings with up to a 12:12 pitch.
