is this fan suitable for attic installation seeing that it is a long draw from basement ?
current fan is in attic. radon pipe comes up through floor slab in basement
Thank you for your question on the model ILRF in-line radon fan. There is no problem installing the fan in the attic as long as the duct work is not too long. Using four inch rigid duct work you can run the ducting 16 feet straight, reducing that distance by four feet for every elbow. Using five inch rigid duct work you can run the ducting 48 feet straight, reducing that distance by five feet for every elbow.

Can this fan be used to boost an existing fan in a humid bathroom?
I have a customer who is using the combination fan/heater light unit you sell which uses the 2-250 watt heating lamps. They don' t often use the heater, but the fan doesn't seem to be removing enough of the moisture from the bathroom to avoid paint damage due to water collecting and running down the ceiling/walls.
My secondary question would be, "Could I mount this or another remote unit in the alcove above the shower, with ducting to a vent cover in the shower, and add a "Y" adapter to connect to the existing fan, which is centrally located in the bathroom(outside of the shower)?" Thank you!
Thank you for your question s about your NuTone 9427P. The 9427P uses 4”round duct and produce 70CFM. You should check the duct work to make sure there are no restrictions and that there is smooth air flow out the roof or wall cap. In answer to your second question, the ILRF would not be the correct ventilation product to use for this application. However, you could use an Inline fan possibly the ILF120 for more ventilation in the room, but a “Y” adaptor could not be used to connect the other fan. Please contact our technical service department at 1-888-336-6151 to discuss your particular application in greater depth.
