two timers on one switch


I have a dual switch that has the fan and the heat lamp conected to it. I would like to replace that single switch with two timer switches. Right next to it I just have a switch that controls the light in the bathroom.

Is there a switch that has two timers on it?

If not, then I would need one that has a timer and a regular switch to turn the fan+light and then the second timer to turn on the heat lamp.

i've never seen a timer switch with a second switch on it let alone a duplex timer switch. They do make timer switches that have a manual throw so that you can bypass the timer though.

Lutron makes a dual-control device where one is a timer and one is an incandescent 300W dimmer. It's in the Maestro family of dimmers.

I'm not aware of any devices with two timers in a one-gang device. After selling wiring devices for almost 5 years I can say I've never had anyone ask for that. Odds are it has not come up enough for any major manufacturer to pick this product up. If you do find something come back and let us know.
