Our new fan lights disappear into the ceiling with other recessed lights, with trim matched to designs of major recessed light manufacturers so they are practical decorating solutions for any room in the house. In the bath they control humidity, and in a utility room, kitchen or high-traffic family room they keep the air fresh and comfortable.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 70 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect for my particular installation I was looking for a compact combo light & exhaust fan for an alcove shower installation. I liked the idea that it looked like a regular recessed lighting fixture, and it was supposed to be relatively quiet in operation. Since this was a remodel installation, I needed to climb up in the attic to install. It went very smoothly, but the lack of an included installation template could cause problems if you're not careful. I made my own out of some cardboard from a cereal box, being careful to mark which direction the exhaust duct connection was pointing. Note that the installation instructions (available on this website) made mention of allowing a 1/8" gap between the bottom of the unit and the attic-side of the ceiling wallboard. My unit arrived w/ some foam strips installed around the light/exhaust inlet opening that seemed to force the 1/8" spacing. Even so, I allowed a tiny bit more gap. Also note that, once you adjust the arms that extend from the unit and are nailed to the adjacent ceiling joists, you are supposed to crimp the channels that the arms travel in so they are snug and there won't be any rattling. These 2 things, the gap & the crimping, may be where others who have reviewed this item and complained about the noise went wrong. Electrical hook-up was very straight-forward. I wish they would've included a cable clamp for the point at which the electrical cable enters the unit, but I had a spare one I used. Also note, if you are installing this directly above the shower as I am, it must be connected to a Ground-Fault Isolation circuit. The hardest part for me was running the electrical cable through the walls to hook it up to power & the switch. Once that was done, it worked like a charm. The bathroom isn't yet complete, so I can't fully test the installation for getting rid of moisture. For that reason, I've only rated this 4 stars instead of 5. I can say at this point the noise of the fan will not be able to be heard above the noise of the water from the shower itself. Final note: I think the cost of this unit is a bit high when you look at the actual unit itself. I don't see why it should be so much more expensive compared to other comparable units, but perhaps it's a case of "you get what you pay for". If all goes well with the full operational test, I will probably be buying another one to install in the other full bath upstairs (kids' bathroom) when I tackle that remodel job. April 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quiet Ceiling Exhaust Fan The fan was simple to install, is very quiet at 1.5 sones and the recessed light looks nice. Currently, the light bulb vibrates slightly while the fan is running and I hope that once the ceiling drywall is installed that will eliminate the vibration. December 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great! I installed these in both my bathrooms above the shower and tub. The fan is so quiet, i can hardly tell it is on. The light is plenty bright as well and lasts forever with a 75 watt PAR 30 L bulb. June 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Looks great! No fan and light combo with ugly cover. It's clean and quiet! Great air movement also. November 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Way Better Than The Ugly Plastic Options Great recessed light. Nice and bright. Very quiet fan does the job in our 9 x 9 bathroom. So much better looking than those cheap plastic options. March 23, 2013
