I installed two of these fans near the peak of a cathedral ceiling in a new "sunroom", to exhaust hot air on summer days. Each fan is on a timer, so one or both fans can be used. A 3rd fan was installed in a new storage room used for painting and chemical cleaning.
The only negative - the fan frame's actual height is 9 3/8", while the 2x10's in that storage room ceiling were only 9 1/4", so some shimming was necessary. Other than that, they were pretty easy to install in NEW construction. Installation in existing construction would be significantly more difficult, as you would have to get a switched 14/2 NM cable to the fan's junction box AND connect the fan's 6" steel output pipe to a 6" duct that exhausts air through a damper to the outside.
This fan requires a mounting opening of 12 3/16" (square).
The best thing about these fans is they are not loud. No one makes a silent fan that moves 300 CFM, but the mild sound of whooshing air with this model is not objectionable. In a house we remodeled last year, I installed a Broan model 504 10" Vertical Discharge Fan rated for sound at 6 sones, and it's way too noisy. I should have used one of these 2-sone Panasonic models.
The plastic grille easily attaches after the drywall is finished, and it looks great.
We brought the fan with us to Home Depot to make sure we got the correct parts for venting. (I hate having to run back and forth to the store for parts) So anyway, we wanted to reduce it to a 4" out the side wall with a laundry vent. We bought the reducer, a 6" down to 4", a 10 ft. - 4" hose, the laundry vent, some flex tape, and then connected it all. Well, we turned on the fan and it was so noisy, also the output from the outside of the house didn't nearly seem like enough. I kept wondering what we did wrong :( Well, I ended up back at home depot. I figured that we reduced the fan down to the 4" too soon. Instead of putting the reducer right at the output of the fan, we bought a 6" hose and used the reducer (same 6" to 4") right before going to the outside laundry vent. HUGE difference!!!!!!! The fan was so quiet, and the output from the outside vent was awesome.
As for the measurements from the other review, they are correct. I now understand what he was talking about. The electrical box on this fan is on the bottom of the unit. It does make it quite tricky with the drywall and I now understand why he had to do a little adjusting when he installed it.Read more ›
However, it definitely was not the easiest fan to install. The hole template provided is simply to get you started. Luckily, it was easy to disassemble (to help with installation) and put back together. With the inside cover off, I had a better view of how to line everything up. It has a bit of weight to it, so lifting it up and down 12+ times to get the hole "just right" can be a bit frustrating. You have to allow some additional space (about 1") for the 6" vent assembly (and where it all comes together) at the bottom of the fan. If there is Sheetrock in the way, it won't line up. It took me a few tries to figure this one out. I didn't have to cut an odd sized hole for the electrical box. You will want to wire the electrical box first. There is a quick disconnect between the electrical box and fan wiring. Next, I attached the vent assembly to the fan body after attaching the fan frame to the two newly installed 2x4 braces between my rafters. The end opposite of the vent assembly is attached to the existing rafter. Plug the fan in to the already wired electrical box and you should be good to go.
When disassembled, everything inside looked to be quality. No flimsy metal parts and pieces, no cheap connectors and wiring. The interior turbine was plastic, but very sturdy with no wiggles or shakes. This fan looks built to last awhile. I was happy to see this, and the build finish and overall quality is why I'm rating this fan at 5 stars.
