Customer Questions & Answers

Where can I get a filter for this fan?

Asked by: Anonymous
This fan does not use a filter. If installed correctly, it should be venting the inside air to the outside. Therefore, a filter would be unnecessary.

does it exhaust through the ceiling?

What size hole in the ceiling?
Asked by: Anonymous
This particular model (8310) vents horizontally, using a 3 1/4 x 10 metal duct to run out a side wall. The model (8210) would be what you would want to run through the ceiling, it uses a 7" duct. Hope that helps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like this fan, it does a great job I bought this product about two years ago and installed it in a bathroom that has a high lightwell around a skylight above the shower/bath. There had been problems with steam and moisture on walls etc.The fan did a great job of keeping it fog free and saving the finishes on the walls and windows. It moves an impressive amount of air. This week however the motor failed. Will try to get parts for this fan instead of buying another. I looked at the home improvement store where I bought it but they did not have this motor among the replacement/ improvement motors that they carry. Great fan, just wish it still worked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little loud, but it does the job I was leaving the store and just happened to see this on the clearance shelf for $40 (the packaging was a little banged up). Thank goodness I did because our in-wall kitchen exhaust bit the dust a while back and we really were not wanting to pay $100 for a new motor. This was actually a ceiling exhaust fan but my husband was able to use the pieces to replace our old one. I'm thrilled! However, I know how much these things generally cost so I'm giving the value an average rating. $100 seems a little steep just for the motor but I really have nothing else to compare it to. We also used the new cover that came with it to replace our old, dingy metal cover. It looks good but it's plastic and likely won't hold up as long as our metal one has. Regardless, it all worked out to our benefit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked since 2010 I have these in a locker room at a health facility. They definitely move air. One of the fans stopped working, the other one sounds horrible so I have to replace them. They lasted almost a full 5 years. I have two more that are still working fine. However they are noisy, for me this is good because it creates ambient noise while people are sharing the space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Size was a concern, it did not fit in the space because it was round. The equipment was fine, the box had all of the components. The appearance was good. But, it will be returned due to size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good fan but needs replacement every few years I have had 2, maybe 3 of these fans in the last decade. Time to replace it again. It works fine when working but I don't understand why it stops working after a few years. It is wall installed. I clean it from time to time but does not seem to help.
