Answer: 
4" but I believe that they also make a different model of the same basic fan that has a 3", I necked down the 4 inch to a 3" to fit my existing roof vent and the fan seems to work just fine.

Answer: 
4in will give you the flow that works best. It also looks like it will fit a 3 in duct if that is what you already have installed.

Answer: 
It is designed for a 4" vent only. Warning: It is designed for horizontal venting only, not to exceed a 1" to 2" variance from the horizontal. It is very quiet, but very weak and difficult to install. I returned the product and purchased a NuTone QTN80E fan, which is easy to install, powerful, quiet, and is designed to be vented thru the roof.

My current fan is just vented into the attic. The attic does have vents and an exhaust fan. Can this fan be set up the same way?

Bathroom exhaust fans must be vented directly to the outside. The air that they exhaust from the bathroom contains a high level of humidity that can lead to mold growth in the attic. Below is a residential code citation mandating venting to the outside.

Answer: 
Yes
Remove the plastic grille and you'll see that the blower motor/blade assembly is held place by four screws. The blower assembly's electrical connector unplugs easily from the main fan housing.
1. Remove the grille
2. Unplug the electrical connector
3. Remove 4 screws and carefully lower the fan.
Takes less than 10 minutes.

Answer: 
The fan cannot be removed. The power supply must be disconnected before servicing. You can remove the grill to clean it, vacuum the fan housing, wiping down the housing and then replace the grill.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 45 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good product yes easy to put in and connect quite and nice looking August 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by No good Instructions are vague at best but nothing you can't figure out. Once installed in my 5x8 bathroom i realized it isnt going to do the job. My old noise maker moved twice as much. The inside flap opens but it doesn't move the cfm claimed. Buy something better dont do the job twice July 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Purchase If you're looking for a very silent fan this is the way to go, July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by big difference Like all fans it was an easy install. This one happened to be for a utility room. The big plus is it was as quiet as advertised. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet and great price Installed in my house and in rental property. Glad I found it. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Qujiet and efficient I was refurbishing my bathroom and purchased this as a replacement for a too-loud exhaust fan. Installation was pretty seamless, but attaching the face plate was a little difficult because I had an extra 3/8" of bead board on the ceiling. That worked out fine, though. The fan is very quiet and the face plate is attractive. The price was reasonable for the quality of the product. June 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Fan Replaced 3 noisy fans in my house. Easy install without accessing attic. Prevents large master bath from steaming up. So quiet we forget to turn them off. April 28, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Decent vent fan . Horrible instructions My biggest issue is the instructions. They seem to have been written by someone who has never installed or even seen one of these devices. The original vent fans were still going and louder than a semi and are from 1969. I couldn't take it anymore so started out with one bathroom at a time . The drawings in the instructions show the four different brackets they want you to use to brace the fan between joists . They're very difficult to see clearly even with the little blow ups they have printed . They also don't have a set screw hole drilled into the side of the fan so frankly I felt lost and that I would royally mess this job up . I am fairly handy and have my own wide assortment of tools . The bottom of the fan housing also has holes drilled in it and there is absolutely ZERO mention of what to do with them . I am guessing , and you'll be doing this a lot if you buy this fan , that I'll have to eventually go back and drill small holes and then probably run a couple of small bolts up through the ceiling and then put a nut on the attic side of the bolt. I only want to do this because there is NO WAY to stabilize the brackets to the fan body unless I drill one or run a self tapping screw in which is a small risk . Also forget about the super cheap wood screws included . I guarantee you they'll strip out if you try to run them into the joist. Now the fan is super quiet and seemed to work at clearing out the room very well last night after my mother , who needs care , used the bathroom last night . Normally there would be odors in the hallway but not on the trial run .The old fan did not do this at all . At first I didn't think this fan would do much due to the sound level but I was pleasantly surprised. The unit seems to be of solid quality for the price and I might buy another one for the other bathroom but not sure yet . Also , once again , the instructions are so freaking horrible that I have to mention this . The way to attach the grill is not clear at all . The instructions do not show where the strange springs attach to . There are lines going up in the drawing that you can't see where they are supposed to go leaving me highly frustrated and wondering if something was missing from the box. The blower motor has two small brackets on either end of it and that's where I ended up inserting them , which in and of itself is pretty difficult . Why on earth Hampton Bay didn't just use a center thumb screw or some other mounting style is beyond me but it probably comes down to cost. If not for this fact and the lousy instructions I might have given four stars and had the fan not worked well I would've hit them with two stars . Also HD asks me would I recommend this product . Well , yes if you have experience fixing things and troubleshooting and NO if not . How about a "maybe if " option? :) April 26, 2016
