But why would anyone want such an amazing ventilation fan? Most often these ventilation fans are used in bathrooms to rid of unwanted smells, or even to vent out the moisture in the air from a hot morning shower. Whatever the use, what makes someone want this over the other cheaper ventilation fans? Well, that completely depends on the user and what they expect from their product.
Anyone can go to their local hardware store and pick up a bathroom fan for around $20. In theory, that cheap alternative will work just as this one does, but where the difference comes in is how it performs. That cheap alternative says it will push 50 CFM, but for how long at what static pressure? How much noise does it make during operation? How long will it last? These are all questions that you just can't answer with that type of fan. With the PCD110M, you can.
The Soler & Palau PCD110M features a quiet and efficient brushless DC motor. This beast of a motor is rated for 60,000 hours of continuously being on, all while running efficiently enough to be Energy Star qualified. And even if this motor does fail, it is under a 6-Year warranty! Something you would never get with any of the other guy's bathroom fans. And to just add on to the excitement, this motor operates at an average of 0.75 Sones. To put that into perspective, normal conversation in person is 4 Sones, and a very calm room is 0.4 Sones. Talk about barely hearing a thing!
This ventilation fan also features the Premium Choice, which allows the user to choose their airflow! Need 80 CFM? You got it. 140 CFM? No problem! This is done with its adjustable duct connectors and toggle switches. All this and more can be seen the in the following charts:
Just flip a few switches, and you have your requested CFM without any more worrying. Because this is high quality brushless motor, it will keep that CFM going for years unlike those cheaper brushed motor which fall apart in a matter of months.
