Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 19, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Standards for these wall mounted exhaust fans has stayed the same since the original 1952 unit. Thanks. The Fan was well packed, not a difficult install, has a good high flow rate. May 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 10, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Look for something else Fan out of balance, Vibrates and is very loud, it does exhaust January 27, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 21, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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. February 19, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 3, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by really quick delivery Just what I needed to replace an old one ...... same hole. October 29, 2011
