Product Description

When It Comes To Dryers, Where Is The Perfect Installation With Little To No Duct Length The Reality Which Contractors And Homeowners Have To Work With Is Far From Perfect. A Short Dryer Duct Length Is Not Always Possible. This Is Where Fantech Dryer Boosters Can Help. Under Prime Conditions, Residential And Commercial Clothes Dryers Should Dry Clothing In A Timely Fashion. Problems Occur When Dryers Are Connected To Long Runs Of Duct Work. This Is The Reason Why Most Residential Dryers Are Located Against Outside Walls. The Exhausted Air Is Vented Directly To The Outside Without Complicated Ducting To Hinder The Performance Of The Dryer. Many Dryer Installations Do Not Allow Direct Venting And The Typical Residential Dryer Cannot Operate Efficiently Against The Resistance Created By The Necessary Duct Work. The Results Are Longer Drying Times, Higher Energy Usage And Costs, And Excessive Wear And Tear On The Dryer. The DBF 110 Dryer Booster Inline Fan Addresses Every Obstacle. A Silent Partner For Your Dryer. The Fan Compensates For System Duct Losses and Allows the Dryer to Exhaust Warm Moist Air as the Manufacturer Intended. The Fans Can Handle up to 60 Feet of Duct and Six Elbows. The Backward Blades Allow Lint to Pass Through the Fan. The Patented Control Automatically Operates the Booster Fan Whenever the Dryer is Running Feature and Specification ABS-PC Blend Thermo Plastic Housing Permanently Lubricated Sealed Ball Bearings Self Cleaning Backward Curved Impeller Automatic Reset Thermal Overload Protection Five Year Factory Warranty

Sadly no one that I contacted knew what this device is.

I had to attach little nibs of solid wire to the terminal strip and connect these nibs of wire to the stranded power cord wire with wire nuts.

We ordered and installed the Fantech Booster fan and the secondary lint trap and it's like having a new dryer!

If your clothes dryer doesn't seem to dry properly, check the ventilation run. Most dryers are meant to be vented along a fairly short run, and if they aren't your performance will go down the tubes. Our dryer took 2 cycles to dry a medium-sized load of laundry. While trying to figure out why, we realized that not only was our duct run too long (be several feet) but we also had three turns. This is enough to kill performance (doesn't dry in one cycle, excessive lint build-up). We ordered and installed the Fantech Booster fan and the secondary lint trap and it's like having a new dryer! I would strongly suggest purchasing the secondary lint trap at the same time as the booster fan, to save on lint going through the fan itself. A nice feature of the fan is the auto-sensing on/off. It starts when the dryer starts and runs in 10-minute cycles (then continuing to run if the dryer is still running). The cycling keeps it from running after the dryer finishes.

Goodbye fire-hazard lint build-up, and hello lower electric bills!

The product works as advertised. After installation it cut my drying time from 2-3 hours to around 40 minutes. Unfortunately, when we have a windy day(which is often in Oklahoma) the fan turns on because it thinks the dryer is running. I emailed the manufacturer but haven't received a response. Kinda wish I had bought one which is operated with a wall switch.

The fan works as advertised and wasn't very difficult to install, but the support bracket is very flimsy. I built a small frame out of 2x4s to give in more support. Also, the compartment where the AC wire attaches is too small and is poorly designed. The terminal strip works ok for attaching NM-B solid wire; but it does not accommodate connecting an AC power cord (with stranded wire) that is plugged into an outlet. I had to attach little nibs of solid wire to the terminal strip and connect these nibs of wire to the stranded power cord wire with wire nuts. All in all, the AC power connection is poorly designed in this unit even if you are using NM-B. Also, it would be helpful if they just put an arrow marking on the fan indicating the direction of airflow.

I received my DBF 110 two days ago and installed it yesterday. There were/are problems.

First, the instruction manual says install it at least 5 feet away from the dryer - OK, no problem. Then next page says it MUST be installed at least 15 feet away from the dryer. Problem; I have less than 15 feet total run from the dryer to any place that I can mount it. I was on the verge of returning it, but I really wanted it to work, so I began the installation. It is to be mounted above a suspended ceiling in the room below the dryer.

Instructions say to attach the mounting bracket to the fan unit using pre-drilled holes on the fan unit - big problem, no pre-drilled holes anywhere on the unit. Again, I wanted the thing to work, so I strapped the fan unit to a pair of PVC drain pipes using long, wide wire ties.

Time to attach the dryer hose. Problem - no 4" clamps in the fan unit box. At this price, they can't give me two clamps? I found two old clamps in the junk box in the garage and attached the dryer hoses.

I attached the power cable (again, not supplied) and powered the unit up. Problem - fan runs with the dryer off (yes, the flow switch is vertical per instructions). Instructions tell me how to adjust the flow switch sensitivity. Problem, my unit does not have any apparent adjustment for the flow switch, at least not as indicated in the instructions. No way to easily run a power cable to the dryer for an on/off switch without drilling a hole in the ceramic tile floor below the dryer - ain't gonna do that. So, I dug up an X-10 appliance module and controller from the junk box in the garage. I mounted the controller on the dryer control panel and marked the buttons in red so that my wife will know which one to use.

This product has changed our life! It has reduced the dust produced by our dryer duct greatly. Our dryer duct empties out on the top of our house, about 20' above the dryer. It was constantly clogged. We purchased the fan booster and had it professionally installed. It turns on and off automatically when the dryer is turned on and off. No more dust, dryer works faster, it is a great purchase.

I just installed the booster a few days ago. The squirrel cage fan enclosed is smooth and quiet. In my case I had to rework the initial installed horizontal ductwork which was in a tight area. It would be much easier if installed for the first time as the ductwork would go rather quickly.

There are a few notes that I would pass on, especially if you are a newbee DIY type of person. Although it is not commented on in the installation manual, electrically you need to provide some sort of disconnecting means to the motor, not hardwired with romex or BX cable. As in my case, I installed a 3-wire cord so that it could be plugged in. The connecting block for the wiring has a little to be desired. The alternative would be to have a switch in-line with the wiring for safety for the workman and maintenance.

The labeling and diagram may be a little hard to see as far as the direction of the blower to exhaust. The flat side is where the intake is and the side that somewhat resembles a cone is the output to the outside. I had to drill a hole to allow the sensor tubing to go through the mounting plate. Outside of the ductwork, this took the most amount of time trying to figure how I could mount the bracket to my basement joist while keeping the sensor switch in an upright position. No matter what I did, the tubing was in the way and would be crushed had I not put in a hole through the plate.

I had approximately 10' of solid dusctwork, (1) 90-120 degree hard bend and (1) 4' of metal flex, before the booster; then about 30' of solid duct with a 2' metal flex at the output. The unit does the job quite nicely, but the modification and added support was a little more than anticipated by the instructions.
