SEATTLE, Wash. – DewStop is a new, innovative fan switch that monitors humidity and dew point levels in a room and automatically switches the exhaust fan on or off to adjust for condensation in order to help minimize damage to walls and household goods, as well as lessen or stop the growth of mold. Without proper ventilation, condensation produced from taking a shower can ultimately lead to mold growth. It is common practice for many of us to leave the exhaust fan running while taking a shower or even for long periods of time afterwards but, in the long run, doing so will generate higher energy usage and higher electricity bills. DewStop solves both of these problems by automatically regulating the fan for decreased humidity and moisture.
DewStop’s patent pending Condensation Sentry is triggered when steam in the room becomes too heavy for the air to support and the moisture then accumulates on surfaces such as walls, mirrors and fixtures (this is the dew point). It will then automatically turn the fan on and keep it on for 30 minutes or until the condensation is no longer a problem and the room is dry.
Intended for use in condensation problem areas of the home, such as near the shower or bath, the switch is easy for anyone to install by simply replacing the existing fan switch with DewStop, turning any fan into a smart fan. The switch has a 30-minute timer, as well as a manual on/off, or just rely on the DewStop sensor to the job.
With a DewStop switch, any bathroom fan changes from ordinary to intelligent:
- Senses and turns fan on when condensation is present
- Runs the fan until room is dry
- 30-minute built-in fan timer
- Manual on/off
- Controls your fan, when your family forgets to
- Works with any existing bathroom fan
- Saves energy
Any consumer interested in saving on energy costs and reducing the growth of mold can purchase DewStop at many national retailers including Ace Hardware, Home Depot, Lowe’s, HD Supply, Alliance Electric, Menard’s or order online at www.DewStop.com. Available in two models, DewStop FS-100 Fan Switch Only (MSRP $49) or DewStop FS-200 Fan & Light Switch (MSRP $59).
