Frequently Asked Questions Delta Group is the world’s largest manufacturer of brushless DC fans and a leading provider of switching power supplies – a $8,471 billion global company with 38 manufacturing facilities, 70 R & D labs, 169 Sales Offices worldwide and U.S. and Americas headquarters in Fremont, CA. Our company mission is “To provide innovative, clean and energy-efficient solutions for a better tomorrow” supported by a product portfolio that features a range of energy efficiency solutions including ventilation fans, small wind energy systems, solar panels, LED lighting, EV chargers, Industrial Automation products and Display Solution products. Delta’s operations are ISO-9001, ISO-14001, ISO-14064, OHSAS-18001 and TS-16949 certified. Delta brushless DC motor fans are used in applications where precision is paramount. This includes consumer electronics products such as laptops, desktops, tablets and gaming systems from leading manufacturers. Please visit our global website for a more comprehensive look at Delta operations, products and capabilities. Delta brushless DC motor exhaust fans use are engineered to run 70% longer and consume 74% less power than AC motor exhaust fans, which reduces replacement costs and saves on utility bills. No mechanical brushing means more quiet operation and less wear on motor components. Delta Breez fans have been tested to run continuously for a minimum 70,000 hours. No special wiring is needed; there is a transformer built into the fan that automatically switches the power supply from AC to DC. Delta’s DC Breez ventilation fans are installed just like any AC motor fans. In the first 10 seconds the fan is powered on, the motor will softly and quickly ramp up to full speed. This is unlike an AC Motor, which simply jump-starts the fan. This quiet ‘soft start’ process helps reduce the wear on motor bearings to prolong fan life. This unique function allows all Delta Breez ventilation fans to automatically power off when the impeller is locked abnormally. For example: when a buildup of dirt and dust accumulates in the fan. The fan will attempt to restart itself in 5-10 seconds. If the impeller is still blocked, the fan will remain off. This helps avoid the issue of over-heating or motor burnout, and helps to prevent potential fire risks. The light indicates to the user that the quiet fan is operating. If the fan has different functions available i.e. humidity sensing, low speed, motion sensing, the light will change color indicating what mode the fan is in. The light will blink if the impeller gets obstructed, telling the user that the fan is not operating properly. CFM and Sones are how bath fans are generally compared CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) is speed of ‘airflow’ – the amount of air extracted per minute when the fan is running. The amount of CFM needed is generally related to the size of the area ventilated. Please see the sizing guidelines. Sone level is how loud the fan is to the human ear. Doubling the sone value means doubling the noise. The average 80 CFM bath fan runs at 0.8~2.5 Sones. Delta Breez 80 CFM fans run as low as < 0.3 Sones. At less than 0.3 Sones, the fan is virtually silent. This is the lowest noise rating of any exhaust fan available in the market. For reference, 1.0 Sone is about as loud as a new computer or refrigerator.

  • Bathroom Ventilation
  • The following are Home Ventilating Institute (HVI) guidelines for ventilating both large and smaller bathrooms using intermittent or continuous ventilation.
  • Small rooms:
  • For bathrooms up to 100 square feet in area, HVI recommends that an exhaust fan provide 1 CFM per square foot (approximately eight air changes per hour) to properly ventilate the bathroom.
  • Example:

• Bathroom is 8′ x 5′ (with 8′ ceilings) Multiply 8 x 5 = 40 ft. • Bathroom area is 40 ft. • At 1 CFM per square foot the minimum recommendation is a fan rated at 40 CFM

  1. Larger rooms:
  2. For bathrooms above 100 square feet in area, HVI recommends a ventilation rate based on the number and type of xtures present, according to the following table:
  3. Toilet 50 CFM
  4. Shower 50 CFM
  5. Bath 50 CFM
  6. Tub 50 CFM
  7. Jetted Tub 100 CFM
  8. Example:

The bathroom is 20′ x 12′. There is a tub (without jets), a shower enclosure and an enclosed toilet.

  • Each fixture requires 50 CFM:
  • Tub 50 CFM
  • Shower 50 CFM
  • Toilet 50 CFM
  • Total 150 CFM

The fan runs at full speed until the user-adjustable humidity set-point is achieved, then automatically switches to the user set low speed for continuous run or off. The amber or blue color of LED indicator light underneath the grille indicates humidity sensing mode or continuous low speed mode.

  • Please consult the Installation & Operating Instruction manual for a particular fan model for more speci c information.
  • When motion is detected, fan comes on at full speed.
  • When user leaves the room, the fan will remain running at full speed until user-preset delay time has passed.
  • Then the fan will automatically drop down to the pre-set low speed for continuous run or off.

The green or amber color of LED indicator light underneath the grille indicates continuous low speed or full speed mode. Please consult the Installation and Operating Instruction manual for a particular fan model for more specific information. No. For proper performance, it is recommended that Delta Breez fan motors be used only with Delta Breez fan housing.

The GBR80LED has an 11W (equivalent to 60W incandescent), 2700K LED module and is included in the box. BreezRadiance: The main light bulb is a 26W CFL with GU24 base (2-pin style).

The bulb is included in the box with the fan. Many Delta Breez models have built-in adjustable delay timers, so no external timer is needed. External timers can be used in conjunction with single-speed models only. Because Breez fans run on much lower wattage than other market ventilation fans, please contact Delta Breez customer service for a list of single-speed models and consult with a licensed electrician for compatibility.

No. Delta does not manufacture switches or timers but these components are readily available in most major home improvement retailers or through your local contractor or supplier. Yes. All Delta Breez fans are UL approved. Here is UL’s testing protocol: For Fan/lights, UL requires 8.5 inches of insulation on all sides (including top) of the product.

Insulation shall be of the loose ll type and should have a thermal resistance per inch between 3.75-3.85 R (declared by the manufacturer) when conditioned to a density of 32.04 – 40.05 kg/m3. This scenario is equivalent to an approximate R value of R32.

R40 is the max for Canadian installations. For a fan only, there is no insulation limitation for fan without lighting except in Canada where the max value is R40. Delta Electronics designs our own LED modules. This is a customized LED module that cannot be replaced with an off-the-shelf, screw-in LED bulb from another manufacturer.

The LED modules are designed to last a minimum of 30,000 hours, so the necessity for future replacement is unlikely. Delta Electronics has a 3-year limited warranty on every Delta designed LED module. If the LED module needs replacement outside of the warranty period, a replacement LED module can be purchased through our distributor partners or from Delta Customer Sales Support.

Motion Sensing Green and amber LED indicator lights will show continuous low speed and full speed modes. The fan will run continuously at a user-preset lower level of CFM. When motion is detected, fan will automatically change to full speed. When user leaves the room, the fan will remain running at full speed until user-preset delay time has passed; delay timer has adjustable preset positions of 0, 0.5, 5, 15, 30, 45 and 60 minutes.

Fan will automatically drop down to low speed after the pre-set time has elapse. Humidity Sensing Blue and amber LED indicator lights to show humidity control and full speed modes. The fan will operate in full speed mode or humidity control mode by manual on and off switch.

  • The adjustable humidity set points are from 50% to 90%.
  • When in humidity control mode, and the humidity is above the user-adjustable set-point, fan will run at full speed.
  • When the humidity is below the set-point, the fan runs continuously at a user-preset lower level of CFM. No.
  • The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) recommends exhausting only to the exterior of the home.

How do I put Homewerks in pairing mode?

iPhone 12 cannot pair with Homewerks Bathroom BT Speakers / Looks like no one’s replied in a while. To start the conversation again, simply I have a Homewerks bathroom BT speaker that worked with iPhones 7, 8, and 10 without any issues. This very same device cannot connect to the new iPhone 12 pro max.

  • There are similar threads pointing to generic BT connectivity issues with the new iPhone (e.g.), which include procedures that worked with other BT devices.
  • However, none of these procedures solved the issue of pairing with the Homewerks device.
  • My Homewerks BT speaker’s model is 7130-06-BT, but the issue seems to affect all Homewerks bathroom BT speakers.

iPhone 12 Pro Max, iOS 14 Posted on Jan 3, 2021 11:41 AM Probably not what you want to hear, but if a problem only occurs with one device from the iPhone 12 the problem is most likely in the speaker firmware. The one change in the iPhone 12 Bluetooth is that it was upgraded to a newer version of Bluetooth 5, and the speaker may not be compatible with it.

  • You previously had the speaker connected to a different phone. Does the speaker support more than one BT connection to a phone? I tried to find this on the Homewerks website, and could not. If it doesn’t you might have to reset the BT on the speaker, but I couldn’t find how to do that on the website either.
  • Have you put the speaker into pairing mode? I couldn’t find how to do that on the website either, unless both of these require removing power from the fan (which seems possible but unlikely to me). Or is there a control switch sequence that puts it into pairing mode?

If this is covered in the other thread I apologize, but the signal-to-noise ratio in that thread is poor. It would still be worth reviewing it in this new thread.

  • Hello Lawrence, thanks for the suggestions.
  • Yes, I did all the above. The manuals for these devices can be found at:
  • Mine is the 7130-06-BT, which the instructions for pairing can be found at page 10 of its manual:

The instructions are quite poor and basically only mention the steps related to your BT device (iPhone in my case) but says nothing about the steps regarding the actual Homewerks device. I tried the manuals for other Homewerks devices but the text is basically the same.

  • Fortunately, I was able to find other references in forums and was able to pair all iPhones we used to have in the house.
  • I paired one iPhone 7, two iPhones 8 and one iPhone 10, but the same pairing procedure did not work for the new iPhone 12.
  • Basically, you turn the switch on and press the “music” button.

You will hear a ringtone and it will connect automatically with the last phone it paired with. If you have a new phone then you will have to turn the speaker off, then on again and do a long press in the music button until you hear the ringtone. It also worked with two short presses (I found this empirically).

  1. Once it pairs, then it is just a matter of pressing the music button once to have it paired with the last device.
  2. When trying to connect with the new iPhone I did try various combinations of pressing the button, hearing the tone, turning on and off BT in the iPhone, etc.
  3. Nothing worked.
  4. All works for the iPhone 8 I still have.

Just to complement my post above, I have two iPhones 12, both can pair with my computer, my headphone, iWatch, etc., but not with the Homewerks speaker. The previous iPhones connect with all the above with no issues. Understood, but do you have more than one iPhone connected to the Homewerks speaker? What about the phone that you used with it in the past? Is it still paired with the speaker? Yes, an iPhone can connect to any number of devices that it is paired to, but each device is limited to a certain number of phones that it can be paired with.

  1. For example, I have a headset that can pair to up to 2 phones and other devices, a speaker that can pair to up to 5 phones, computers, etc.
  2. But I also have a headset that can pair to only one phone; to pair it to a different phone I must unpair it from the phone it is connected to.
  3. I don’t know if the Homewerks speaker has this limitation or not, but that’s something that you need to find out from Homewerks.

OOPS, sorry, I didn’t see your longer post before responding. Do you have iOS 14.3 on the iPhone 8 that it works with? How many devices do you have paired on the 12? Do all of them work except for the speaker? Regarding the multiple devices issue, the speaker only retains the last device.

For example, I would use it the most so for me it was a matter of just turning the speaker on and it would automatically connect to my iPhone 10. Then, if either my wife or my daughter would use it, they would have to do the manual pairing. Regarding the iOS, good catch. The iPhone 8 I still have is running iOS 13.

I will upgrade it and see whether it still pairs with the speaker.

  1. I have tested the Homewecks bathroom BT speaker with the following equipment/iOS combinations:
  2. Successful pairings:
  3. iPhone 8 MQ6M2LL/A
  4. – iOS 14.2 (18B92)
  5. – iOS 14.3 (18C66)
  6. iPhone 7 MN8P2LL/A
  7. – iOS 13.7 (17H35)
  8. – iOS 14.3 (18C66)
  9. iPhone 5 ME306LL/A

– iOS 12.3.1 (16F203) – iOS 12.5 (16H20) iPad 9.7″ MD518LL/A – iOS 10.3.4 (14G61)

  • iPad Pro 12.9″ MTFL2LL/A
  • – iOS 14.2 (18B92)
  • – iOS 14.3 (18C66)
  • I also have successfully paired my previous phone (iPhone 10 – iOS 13) with the device
  • Unsuccessful pairings:
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max MGCN3LL/A (two distinct devices tested separately with the two iOS versions below)
  • – iOS 14.2 (18B92)
  • – iOS 14.3 (18C66)
  • Both phones “see” the Homewecks device and list it under “other devices” as HOMEWECKS(H83A), but then the pairing failure message pops up.

The two iPhone 12 Pro Max above do pair with my computer (running Fedora 33), my headphone, and headset. Thus, the failure to pair with the Homewecks bathroom BT speaker seems to be something restricted to the protocol/hardware between these two specific devices.

  • Apologize if repeating.
  • But you try turn off bluetooth on all devices, except the iPhone 12 Pro Max? Yes, I had to.
  • I actually lined up all phones and ipads close to the Homewerks BT receiver.
  • All had their BT off.
  • I then started testing one-by-one turning on their bt and then turning off after the testing.

Between each test I also turned off the Homewerks BT. After the first round of testing I did the software upgrades on the devices that needed and started over. As you can see from my previous post, updating the iOS did not change the original results. Probably not what you want to hear, but if a problem only occurs with one device from the iPhone 12 the problem is most likely in the speaker firmware.

  1. The one change in the iPhone 12 Bluetooth is that it was upgraded to a newer version of Bluetooth 5, and the speaker may not be compatible with it.
  2. Is there a way to update the firmware on the speaker? Yes, you said what I was fearing to hear 🙂 I went through the differences between iPhone BT implementations and learned that the iPhone 12 does have a newer BT 5 version.

I did think that these “dot” versions were fully backwards compatible but evidence here seems to point otherwise. I will contact Homwecks and ask for clarification on these matters. In any case, I am a bit skeptical that the Homewecks device would be upgradable, but I have been wrong so many times that I am hopeful that this would be one of these.

I’ll provide feedback in case I receive anything from them. Very helpful and detailed response to the issues most of us are having pairing up with our new iPhone 12 Pro Max’s to HomeWerks music fans. I thought it was a clitch with Apples Sofrware in the iPhone 12 Pro Max originally. The more i’m reading about this issue the more it seems like it’s an issue on HomeWerks end.

Can we upgrade the software on HomeWerks music fans if HomeWerks finds the software clitch. Not sure if you would know something like this. I have the same issue. My Homewerks bathroom exhaust fan bt speaker model is 7130-16-BT. It worked fine with our iPhone 6S phones running IOS 14.1.

  1. But is not working with our new iPhone 12 phones.
  2. I have opened a case with Apple and they have had me do the network reset (which as many have confirmed, does not resolve the issue).
  3. I have also installed a temporary profile so Apple support can collect logs from my phone.
  4. I have uploaded the requested screen shots, time stamps, and log files to Apple as requested by the Apple engineering team.

I also submitted a request to Home Networks regarding the problem and they stated: “Apple believes it is a missing link in their iOS.” Hopefully we see something out of these troubleshooting steps. I miss having the music over the bt speaker in the bathroom.

  • I am the original poster of the other thread that got a bit watered down.
  • There seemed to be other issues that got mixed into that thread.
  • I do believe though that its not strictly a Homewerks issue based on some other devices and issues in that thread were the same problem i am having with all 3 of my Homewerks bathroom ceiling fans.

I have reset them to factory by flipping the switch 5 times i think and i know this worked because the name of the device had changed back to factory from what i had renamed it with my old XR. Anyway i dont know how Homewerks could load new firmware into a standalone speaker.i think we are screwed.i would have never upgraded my phone if i knew this was an issue.i would have had at least another year or 2 of normalcy.I am going to send another email to Homewerks and see if they are still working with apple to resolve.a friend of mine had a new samsung that did not find the homewerks either so it does sound like this latests version of BT is not tracking back to whatever Homewerks and a few other brands are utilizing 🙁 PetePPB wrote: a friend of mine had a new samsung that did not find the homewerks either so it does sound like this latests version of BT is not tracking back to whatever Homewerks and a few other brands are utilizing 🙁 Ah, that is quite telling.

Why is there a red light in my air vent?

Why Is My Alexa Bathroom Fan Red Any time you see a blinking red light in your home it can be stressful. Blinking red lights are often a sign that something is going wrong. If you see this kind of light on your AC unit thermostat, it might not mean that there’s a major problem. The most likely reason that this red light has started blinking is that your outdoor AC unit has shut off.

This can happen even if your indoor unit is still running, and some simple issues might be the culprit. For example, your outdoor AC unit might not be getting the power it needs to run. This can happen if a circuit breaker has tripped or if a fuse blows. If either of these things are the problem, then you should be able to get your outdoor unit working.

Simply flip the breaker back to “on” or contact a professional to replace the blown fuse. You might also try resetting the AC unit using the reset button on the outdoor unit. However, if these steps don’t work, it might mean that you have a more serious issue.

  1. At this point, it’s typically best to contact an air conditioning and heating expert.
  2. They will inspect your system to determine what issues your AC unit might be having that could be contributing to the problem.
  3. Some AC units have coded systems, which means the pattern in which the red light is blinking means something specific.

These pros have the specialized tools and knowledge to interpret these lights, figure out what’s wrong and get your system running. The following are some of the most common issues that might cause the red light on your AC unit thermostat to start blinking.

Why is there a blue light in my hotel bathroom?

March 19, 2019 Blue lights are sometimes installed in publicly-accessible washrooms to discourage injecting drug use but have several unintended consequences. Recommendation Fraser Health recommends against placing blue lights in publicly-accessible washrooms.

Blue lights are unlikely to prevent injecting drug use in publicly-accessible washrooms. While the lights reduce vein visibility, evidence indicates people will attempt to inject under blue lights when they feel confident in their injecting ability and where there are no suitable alternatives. Blue lights increase risks associated with injecting drug use. They promote unsafe practices such as deep vein injecting, which can be done without visual identification of the vein. People attempting to inject under blue lights may accidently inject into an artery or into surrounding tissue. They may have trouble measuring and monitoring the amount they are injecting, thereby increasing overdose risk. Poor visibility increases the risk of blood borne virus transmission as it is harder to see and clean up any blood or bodily fluids. The installation of blue lights in publicly-accessible washrooms may lead to increased drug use in public places including nearby stairwells, alleys and parks. This affects perceptions of public safety, and compounds the shame experienced by many people who inject drugs. Blue lights compromise health and safety for all washroom users as they reduce visibility, increase risk of trips and falls, make it harder to see and clean up hazardous waste, and prevent community members from carrying out basic personal hygiene, such as identifying changes in eye or skin tone, or the presence of blood or discoloration in bodily fluids.

Does a bathroom fan need to be on its own circuit?

Bathroom Circuits – A basic wiring plan for a bathroom includes a 20-amp, GFCI-protected circuit for the receptacles and a 15-amp general lighting circuit for the switches, light fixtures, and vent fan. In some areas, the lighting and receptacles must be on separate circuits so that if a receptacle trips the circuit breaker, the lights won’t go out.

In other areas, it’s permissible to install the lighting, receptacles, and a standard vent fan on a single 20-amp circuit provided the circuit serves only the bathroom and no other rooms. If the vent fan has a built-in heater, it must have its own 20-amp circuit. This is called a “dedicated” circuit because it serves only one appliance or fixture.

Heat lamps, wall heaters, and other built-in heating appliances may also require dedicated circuits. Learn about bathroom wiring requirements in your area by contacting the local building department.
