National Ventilation’s Monsoon EnergysaverTM IntelliSense fan has been shortlisted in the Electrical Industry Awards.

The ventilation manufacturer’s ultra quiet, slim, modern, intelligent bathroom fan is a finalist in the ‘Residential/Domestic Product of the Year’ category at the leading industry awards, with over 450 guests set to attend this key evening.

The 26th Electrical Industry Awards takes place on Thursday 25 October at the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington, London.

One of the industry’s longest running and most prestigious award schemes, the Electrical Industry Awards is a celebration of the best electrical industry professionals have to offer.

Robin Francis, MD of National Ventilation, commented: “We are thrilled to have been named as a finalist at these prestigious industry awards. The IntelliSense fan offers truly intelligent ventilation and deserves to be recognised as a leader in its field”

“IntelliSense is a great choice for consumers, offering good control of indoor air quality as well as being aesthetically pleasing and very quiet. It’s the intelligent choice.”

Extremely energy efficient, IntelliSense combines sophisticated smart controls, smooth operation and high performance.

Designed to help achieve good indoor air quality (IAQ), IntelliSense features an intelligent, fully automatic, ambient response humidity sensor for moisture control that learns and adjusts itself to the right level according to the environment.

By continually monitoring and recording the moisture content, IntelliSense maps the humidity profile throughout the year.

This means the fan learns to run only when it can make a difference to IAQ and lowers the moisture content in the air, effectively tackling condensation and mould.

The fan also offers two modes for moisture control, silent or acceleration mode, which can be selected via the touch pad control to suit household needs.

IntelliSense is designed to guarantee end-users can easily control and understand the fan’s functions, with no need to read the manual, courtesy of the visual indicator, which shows the mode is currently active.

Another useful feature available with the IntelliSense is the automatic airing function – if the fan has been inactive for 25 hours, it runs an airing programme for 60 minutes to exchange the air in the bathroom.

This function means you can avoid stuffy, musty odours in the bathroom when you have been away for a large chunk of time.

Featuring flexible installation options, IntelliSense can be installed as either an intermittent or a continuous fan, making it ideal for a wide range of rooms and properties. This means electricians need to carry a smaller selection of products in their vans.

Offering simple set-up, the IntelliSense features an easy-to-use integrated control panel, allowing exact adjustment, with options for extract modes, timer functions and speed control plus the ability to choose different capacities for different functions.

The IntelliSense’s timer function can activate via the light switch, pull cord or a separate switch. The fan offers further control flexibility, as it features a timer with a selectable start delay function and three extended end-of-run times.

This is in addition to the automatic airing function, plus the option for constant operation at an adjustable speed.

When the fan is first connected to the power supply, it performs a self-test, which sees all the status lamps on the control panel tested, as well as the function of the motor, which is ideal for electricians as it allows them to check everything works.

Supplied with a choice of two removable spigots, the fan can also be surface mounted onto a wall without any spigot, which is an ideal function if you have a duct with a smaller dimension than 100mm or a duct that bends directly off the back of the fan not providing any depth in the wall for the spigot.

IntelliSense is also suitable for installation on an uneven surface, giving further installation flexibility. And at only 31mm deep, it’s as unobtrusive as possible plus, the fan comes with an optional wall plate, avoiding the need for redecoration, whilst giving a professional finish.

Suitable for bathrooms, toilets and utility areas, the highly efficient IntelliSense is built to last, has a low-voltage motor fitted with double ball bearings for a long service life and energy consumption as low as five watts on maximum, about a third of what a conventional bathroom fan uses.
