  • The new control uses Broan-NuTone’s proven Sensaire® humidity-sensing technology, which can detect a rapid rise in humidity to turn the fan on. It responds to increases in humidity up to 4X faster* than other humidity sensors, to help fight mold and improve air quality.

    • Sensaire™ technology - Responds to increases in humidity rather than waiting for condensation to form or a relative humidity set point to be reached. It responds before moisture has chance to form to clear mirrors more quickly
    • Precise sensitivity adjustment - Variable setting from 20% to 80% relative humidity so the fan works when the homeowner wants it to regardless of climate or season
    • Continuous ventilation mode - Operates fan for set minutes per hour to achieve targeted average CFM levels and efficiently meet ASHRAE 62.2 whole house mechanical ventilation (WHMV) requirements
    • Sensaire™ with relative humidity set point mode - offers the flexibility to satisfy local range-of-adjustment codes
    • Decorator style design with settings behind concealed door – blends in seamlessly with existing switches
    • User-adjustable delay shut-off timer – allows run-time customization for different bathrooms
    • Manual operation mode for ultimate user control
    • Can be used to comply with California Title 24 and CALGreen
    • LED “On” indicator light and manual operation mode
    • Fits single-gang box; 120 VAC, 60 Hz
    • White Faceplate not included
    • Requires neutral wire for operation
    • 5-year warranty
    • Also available as model P82W, the same humidity sensing wall control in a retail-friendly clamshell package

  • 82W is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Switches on all the time Installed NuTone 82W and it switches on all the time. I tried various ways - from 20% to 80% setting as well as timed and not-timed, nothing helped and it kept on switching on. Unfortunately, there is no accessible switch to disable the product when you don't need it for longer (e.g. you go on vacation). The Broan Costomer service mentioned there is such a disable-setting inside the wall setting, but I haven't been able to locate it.

  • Power outage

    After a power outage, will this product automatically turn on the fan? If so, will it shut itself off?
    Asked by: EM
    Thank you for your question. The 82W will turn the fan on if it senses humidity then shut off after the humidity dissipates. For further assistance, you may contact Nutone Technical Support at 888-336-6151.

    Will this work with a Nutone XN110L bathroom fan instead of a spring wound mechanical timer?

    If this humidity sensing wall control switch will not work with the XN110L, what timer will work with my bathroom fan?
    Asked by: Frankie
    Thank you for your question. The only timer control switch that is compatible with the XN110L is the CFT12WH.

    82W Wall Control with QTXEN110H

    Replacing a NuTone QT110 fan installed in 1998. It might be a 6" duct (don't know). If it is, we might need to buy the QTXEN110H (instead of an AERN110SD). Will the 82W Humidity Sensing Wall Control work with this fan?
