Can I install this in a kitchen?A. The Panasonic FV-40NLF1 is made for bathroom use only, and not reccomended for kitchen use.
Can this fan be used to remove stale damp air from basements and crawl spaces? And, can it be wired to a humidistat?A. Yes, the Panasonic FV-40NLF1 can be used to flow air from an area and can be wired to a humidistant.
Could I use this fan to exhaust a 12' x 12' room?A.
The Panasonic FV-40NLF1 would have a CFM of 440. The recommended CFM for a room your size would 500-512 CFM. In this case depending on how heavy the use of the room this fan would work. For heavier use you may want to use something with a bit higher CFM.
