Answer: 
This unit is designed to be mounted vertically, through the ceiling, but Broan does make a similar unit designed for wall mounting. I have one in my kitchen.

Answer: 
It could, however if you are thinking of mounting it between rooms in a wall, or even in an external wall, it would protrude further than the width of most walls.

Answer: 
Yes. This it what it was engineered to do. A backdraft damper is built into it. Make sure you have an 8 inch tin tubing, some self tapping screws, a china cap, and a roof flashing if you plan to have it come out of your roof. Make sure to seal your flashing and china cap with Geo Cel when you're done with the roof/installion!

Answer: 
Thank you for your question about this vertical discharge fan. The unit is specifically designed for the ceiling. If you mount this in the wall, the damper will not shut. If you need an 8" thru-the-wall fan, please review model 509 and 509S. If you have further questions and would like to speak with a Technical Support person, please dial 888-336-6151. Thanks, again.

Answer: 
8" duct will do. If you want to cut it star shaped(in strips and then off set one bent in and then one bent out) you can make it work that way too. You can look up the manufacturer installation guide online with the model "505."

Answer: 
The fan itself has a plug for an attached outlet connected to a box supplied with the unit. From there it needs to be hard wired to your electrical supply.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by New bath fan The fan runs great. But, in place it is a bit louder than the demo fan was at the home improvement store. The only issue we have is that the dampers do not automatically close without some manual coaxing. Do not know why this is or how to remedy the problem. It was also missing one of the small rubber stops for one of the dampers when it came out of the box. We discussed this with the store where we purchased it and they informed us that Broan Customer service should take care of that at no cost. Upon notification to Broan they promptly shipped two rubber bumpers at no cost. We are very pleased about that. April 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rare Find And Fix Good "bang" for "buck". Aluminum flaps makes slight "tap" when raising and lowering, but nothing extreme. Installed in older home w/straight 8in pipe outlet to roof. Reccomend purchasing 8in to 6in sheet metal reducing sleeve as well IF installing unit into a pre-existing celing that is not going to allow you to be able to reach into and around unit when installing.Could not reach into hole and install my unit against rafters, so I had to fabricate my own tabs for anchoring directly into ceiling with from the ample supply of brackets provided w/unit. Rare find, simple fix and install, good unit for the price. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent took a little extra work to install but I was replacing an old one that did not work. next week I will replace the other one,should be a breeze August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good fan Has a strong motor for pulling air out. It's not the easiest thing to install but I didn't have an attic to work from. Had to open up the ceiling. It's a bit loud for my taste but the customer was pleased with it and it does the job of getting the air out of the kitchen. July 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exhaust fan Great product that does the job as I replaced my old kitchen exhaust fan. May 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice fan Good fan only complaint is when you turn it off the flaps are a little noisy when they come down to close. It is in no way quiet either, it is like a reg box fan turned on, not over bearing, it's actually quieter then my original Broan that I replaced from the 60's. May 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Returned Unfortunately I had to return this item. I was replacing a bathroom exhaust fan in my son's condo and thought this fan was what I needed. As it turns out there must be attic access to install this item between the ceiling joists, but this condo didn't have access. I had to return the item. I did end up buying the replacement motor and fan and installed it. February 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Could be more powerful It is a good fan for the money but it could be more powerful. I would buy it again. February 24, 2016
