    Default I need a timer for a bathroom fan/light/heater combo.

    The plan is to place the heater on the timer and switch the fan and light.

    I have to check again, but I believe the heater is rated at 1000 watts.

    The largest wattage timer I have run across is 600 watts.

    Can anyone steer me to a supply house who carries higher watt timers? Perhaps my google fu isn't up to snuff.

    Here is what I have found and what I had in mind (only higher watt timer).

    http://www.leviton.com/OA_HTML/ibeCC...minisite=10022 has at least a few that are rated at 1800W. Depends on the style.

    Thanks for that.

    For some reason, I have the hardest time navigating their site.

    I still can't find the double rocker switch on their site. I know it exists becauuse it's on HD's website here:



    I sure would like to read the specs, Can find it under HD's published MFG model #.

    I assume a regular 15 amp double rocker would do the job of running the fan and light. Not sure what kind of wattage these switches are or what my fan uses.

    A fan is likely less than 200W, probably a lot less. As to the light, most won't hold more than about a 75W bulb.

    You act like you're running a hair dryer on the timer...
