It sounds like you put the fan in yourself? Is it a fan that runs 100% of the time? Is it basically just cutting PVC pipe & inserting the fan unit, and plugging it in?
Any recollection of what fan you used?
I installed the fan myself. I used a Fantech HP2190. It runs 100% of the time. It is pretty easy to install. Just cut the pipe to fit the fan, insert the fan unit and plug it in. You may need to reduce the connection from the fan to the pipe. I needed 2 4" to 3" flexible reducers to install on my existing pipe. I would also recommend installing a manometer so you will have a visual indicator that the fan is running. Mine is installed in the basement so I can see it whenever I need to. Good luck!
