About 6 years ago we did a remodel. The electrician stated that a fan control was required in our laundry room, one of those things that looks like a dial and periodically turns on the fan. I really hate the things, I can turn on the fan myself - and really it is never needed there. But I digress -
Both fan countdown timers installed at that time are buzzing constantly and I need to replace them. At the same time, I was thinking about just putting the fans on a z-wave controller and then I can schedule whatever I want - or even turn them on when away on vacation.
Roundabout, my question is this: Are these kinds of timers (the round ones that click at certain times and turn the fan off and on) really required in a laundry area? How about for a bathroom? Would it be permissible to use a z-wave controlled switch instead?
