Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JaneMc Great fan!
We installed this fan about two weeks ago. Husband was able to do it from the bathroom ceiling. He did not need to go into the attic. It was a replacement fan/light. The light on this fan is excellent. The fan it's self is a little louder than the one we replaced, but it clears the room much, much better. I would definitely recommend!!

This bath fan/ LED light is easy to install and wire. It is quiet but loud enough you remember to turn it off. Some noise is important because a bath fan can suck all the heat out of a house in an hour. The LED light is bright enough to read with.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ry1712004 Nice Fan
Bought this to replace an old builder grade noisy fan. (from the 70's). Painted the powder room a darker color and the room became significantly darker. So, killed two birds with one fan. Lightened up the room considerably and the fan is fairly quiet. Installation was easy. It was actually harder to get the old fan out than to stick this one in. Good design overall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian101 Great fan, needs better instructions
Other reviews explain how I feel (quiet, good suction, etc), but I want to point out that re-attaching the wiring box was extremely difficult for me. The white 'plug' in the box didn't seem to want to come out and I didn't want to force it, so when I reached the point of all wires being hooked up and ready to secure for permanent install, the white fan plug forced me to use needle nose pliers (and dropping the securing screw 90 times), Either the instructions need revamping or the location of that screw needs correcting, The white plug didn't want to come out and I was afraid to break it, so I worked around it (with much difficulty).
Overall, the fan is amazing, but the install had a few points where the install could've been made easier with better instructions.
For the non-electricians, where the instructions refer to the blue/red wire, if you're looking to hook everything up to one light switch, treat the blue/red wire directions as a black wire and splice as if red=black and blue=black.
Great fan and light, please elaborate on instructions and explain whether or not we should tug on the white plug to get it out of the way of the securing screw to the wiring housing.
After install, you will love this fan/light. I used to have condensation gathering on my wall with the paint streaks dripping down the wall, but after install this sucks all moisture out of the room.
Recommendation: install a timer switch so it continues to run an additional 30 min after your shower and you will not be disappointed with this unit.

First and foremost, this fan is QUIET and the light is BRIGHT! It is sleek, small, unobtrusive and modern. There is no hum or vibration with the fan; just the whoosh of the air being sucked out.
While the light is plenty bright with 800 lumens, it is a cool 3000K white light. I myself would prefer it to be a warmer 2700K light.
Read the installation instructions CAREFULLY:
1) You need to remove the metal plate the fan is mounted on INSIDE the housing to install the housing. Be sure to only unscrew the 3 nuts on the plate and remove the entire unit intact. Do not remove the nuts holding the plastic fan housing, which are located right next to plate nuts.
2) The illustrations seem to indicate you can only install the unit with 1 side against the joist. You can use either side. Note though that the small screw that holds the wiring plate sticks through the housing on that one side, which could make it difficult to reinstall if that side is against the joist.
3) Be sure the housing screws are completely screwed into the joist. If not, they will interfere with the reinstall of the fan unit plate.
4) Be sure the wiring plate is fasten into the clips on the housing that hold it in place on each side of it. The wiring plate should slide into place as long as each side is in the housing clip. If not, it will interfere with the reinstall of the fan unit plate.
5) Note the 'step' on the white LED driver assembly. Again, the fan unit plate can get caught on it during the reinstall.
6) There is a single, one-liner in the instructions: "Both the fan and LED light can be put on one switch." There is no wiring diagram for this. For a novice DIY person, figuring this out could be daunting. Nor does it show you how to wire it to a non-Nutone/Broan switch for separate light and fan control.

The Fan and Light combination is exactly what we were looking for and the LED light is and added bonus.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jay excellent bath fan with LED light
Very nice install. This was a replacement for an older model which was loud and ugly. This one is clean and much quieter. Installation was routine with minor headaches getting the older on out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SouthNJmom Works great!!!
Clears the mirror after long showers. Light is bright and unit is modern looking. Quiet at 1.5 sones. New install in a 2nd floor bath that never had a fan. After dreading this project for years, it's finally done, but it was a challenge. Thank god for the DIY sites on the internet.
