Recommended Power Lift Roof Vent w/12V Fan That Is Powered By Wall Switch


im replacing a older model vent fan that has manual controls and when I turn a switch on on the bathroom cabinet it opens and comes on. will this one do the same looks like it has electronic controls so when power is turned off will it default to off.

I have another option but the MaxxFan Deluxe Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan # MA00-05301K you were looking has a manual lift requiring you to use the hand knob to open and close the vent and will not be able to be powered by your wall switch.

Instead I recommend the Ventline Ventadome Roof Vent w/12V Fan and Wall Switch # V2119-1-533 which includes a new switch to be able to control the lift and fan, as we do not offer a fan that will power the fan and open the vent with the same switch.

I also recommend the Roof Vent Installation Kit # 344270KITW to make sure you do not have leaks after the install.

I included videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
