Indoor Air Quality and Ventilation
Today's homes are built to be tighter and more energy efficient than ever. Compact dwellings also mean that pollutants, dust, and moisture is trapped inside causing poor indoor air quality. The EPA (epa.gov) has stated that indoor air quality is often two to five times worse than outdoor air, and that indoor air pollution is among today's top five most significant risks to public health.
Healthy indoor air quality is essential to the health of the home, and its inhabitants. The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has established the 62.2 standard which applies to all residential spaces that are "intended for human occupancy" in single family homes and multi-family structures up to three stories. Use a Premium CHOICE Fan in each bathroom to meet the ASHRAE 62.2 Local Exhaust Requirement. Please note each bathroom fan counts towards meeting the ASHRAE 62.2 Whole Building Requirement.

Ease of Installation
The Premium CHOICE Series Ventilation Fans are designed for easy installation for both new construction and retrofit installation. All models come with adjustable hanger bars which allow the housing to be positioned quickly and accurately between the framing. Also, most models are designed to be mounted directly to the joist or i-joist. The PC's unique wiring design allows for in-room or outside wiring. All PC Fans come standard with dust-guard packaging to prevent over-spray of paint or ceiling materials when units are installed in new construction applications.
The controls and lighted grilles for the PC fans are "Plug-&-Play." Meaning one fan can be modified to be the exact fan needed. You can have the CHOICE to add a control or change the grille after the initial installation. See the Plug-&-Play Options page for more detail.
What is IAQ Sense?
S&P's Premium CHOICE Fan with the exclusive, award-winning IAQ Sense is the most intelligent fan on the market. The IAQ sensor detects and extracts both Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and humidity when installing with a PC Fan. You can set the IAQ sensor to run the fan at high speed if it senses VOCs or moisture, then after a specified amount of time, it will automatically adjust to run at low speed. See the IAQ Sense page for more detail.
S&P's Premium CHOICE Series Ventilation Fans come standard with the industries longest warranty. All AC models have a 5-year warranty, while DC models have a 6-year warranty.
