Customer Questions & Answers

Can this unit be ceiling mounted?

Asked by: Hank
Not without some serious modification. The outside flap would be an issue.

Can I have this hardwired when it is installed? I assume that the door would have to be open all the time if I did.

Asked by: kitchenreno
yes you can but it will constantly be running. You will have to prop open the vents (door) or remove it and replace it with a diverted vent scoop. Preferably with a screen or at least purchase the round aluminum filter for the unit. Model # S99010046. This will help keep the critters out. I recommend that you hard wire it to a switch or a thermostat. You only need a 15 amp switch or thermostats listed on a previous answer. Option "A" is Broan model 70TW Wall Thermostat for Fans - White http://www.broan.com/products/product/d2614865-fb09-4484-a17a-9a6da8267c23 Option "B" is Dimplex Model # TS321W Single Pole Wall Mount Thermostat Kit http://www.homedepot.com/p/Dimplex-Single-Pole-Wall-Mount-Thermostat-Kit-TS321W/203568932?quantity=1 I hope this helps

470 CFM Wall Chain-Operated Exhaust Bath Fan is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fan. I built out a tiny house/tiny office for onsite mgt. The boss is a smoker so I needed a powerful fan. This one really sucks...out the smoke;-) Easy install, simple to operate. Seals up tight when turned off, too. 10/10 would buy again for future projects.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The fan is out of balance and clips the vent... The fan is out of balance and clips the vent wall now and then. Other words it sucks. Never buy it again.
Date published: 2017-02-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most CFM for the Money This moves the most air for the price. You will need to spend a little extra time installing and making sure everything fits your wall hole without interference and if you get it framed in properly it does not vibrate, rattle or sound like a plane. If the chain drags bend the chain tube open a little more with a punch or screwdriver. You will need to clean the door once in a while if you're moving kitchen grease or other sticky mist through it or it will stick shut but that's just common sense maintenance. If you want something more robust you will have to pay more but this works good if you take care installing, clean it once in a while and don't try to yank the chain into next year.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product is cheaply built. The fan does a reasonable job moving air BUT it sounds like an airplane while running. Very noisy and it vibrates and makes a very loud disturbing noise. Pull chain mechanism is a joke.Would not recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thru the wall exhaust fan The Broan thru the wall exhaust fan is well made and powerful.
Date published: 2016-08-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sufficient Ventilation The Broan is a sound industrial exhaust fan. Though the pull chain to turn on and open the unit is somewhat flimsy, it makes up for in air movement.
Date published: 2012-04-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent but Loud wonderful at removing odors but is loud...wishes the 'flap' on outside would close when not on...had to put a pull-string to close at night.
Date published: 2011-02-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very powerful This fan is great very powerful really moves the air and was not hard at all to install. Comes with switch and everything you need even the outside cover and damper it is black. I installed it on a enclosed porch to remove smoke and it does the job very well.
