The fan works separate from the heat lamp can you install a timer switch on it for the fan
I have done that, the caution is the fan turns off and the heat lamps are on, unit heats up and over temp sensor kick in the fan, but do not trust this, you do not want a fire

Vent & Heat operate together - Light separately
Figure for 9427P wiring option above shows connection to a single Dual Control switch. Can you provide instructions for connection to existing two switch junction box - switch for light and separate switch for vent & heat?
Our electrician was able to easily do this. Separate switch for heat and a a separate switch for fan with light. Works well and now 8 years old.

How close to the wall / cabinets can this be mounted?
When mounting this in the ceiling how far from the wall or cabinet faces does it need to be?
Thank you for your question on the model 9417DN single heat lamp/exhaust fan. It is recommended that you keep the 9417DN at least six inches away from a side wall or cabinet face. If you can keep it a foot away, that would be even better.

Install on 2 different circuits?
Is it possible to install the 9417DN on two different circuits, one for the vent and one for the light? If so, how would the neutral wires be connected? Remodeling a bathroom that never had a vent. Installing a new 20 amp circuit to the bathroom, but would like the vent to come on with the same switch that controls the existing light inside the shower that is on a 15 amp circuit. The heat lamp will be on the new 20 amp circuit controlled by a timer switch.
Thank you for your question on the model 9417DN single heat lamp bulb/exhaust fan. With the 9417DN only having a single white neutral wire and a thermal protector safety device, we would suggest using a single power source for both functions.
