With the ISO ceiling exhaust fan and light, your bathroom exhaust fan will be as smart as everything else.  The ISO is a humidity-activated fan that turns on when it senses moisture in the air and turns itself off when the humidity level has dropped.  No more coming home and finding that you forgot to flip the fan off after your shower, and it’s been running all day.

ISO has a a two-bulb light fixture (two 40W fluorescents required but not included) for general illumination and a motion-triggered nightlight (7W incandescent, not included).  It comes with a wall switch for both the fan and the light.  The exhaust fan is made of metal, plastic, and glass and measures 12.99″ X 12.99″; total height is 8.84″ deep, and it extends 1.57″ down from the ceiling when installed.  The fan is very quiet at 1-3 sones.

The ISO fan is $129.00 at Quirky.

  2. We installed humidity sensing exhaust fans in our previous house. (6 months ago we moved). I could never figure them out they seamed so random. Took a steamy shower they would not come on, crawl in bed later be on the verge of sleeping and BOOM fans kick on. Turn them on manually to deal with “poomidity” issues and a few minutes later they turn off because the “poomidity” isn’t “humid” enough. Tried two brands, LG an GE. Same issues. My SO told me they had to go, so we sold the house. Hopefully these work better, I doubt I would be allowed to install them tho.

    1. I like the way you think. My TV is on the fritz, better put the house on the market. 🙂 Seriously though, I appreciate your feedback on these kind of products. I didn’t even think of false starts or stops when running in automatic/manual mode. Definitely something that should be resolved before dropping $120+ on an exhaust fan that you can get non-automatic equivalent for half the price at your local hardware store.
