Can this be used in an existing vent fan spot?

This question is from 70 CFM Ceiling Exhaust Fan with Recessed Light
Asked by
Katie
August 14, 2013
We have a larger light/fan combo currently in place and would like to use this style in it's place. If this fits into the opening, would we need to just patch with drywall to conceal the large opening? Just want to know before purchasing how much work this will require

Answer: 
I did exactly that and it worked out fine. You will have to patch the drywall since the opening is likely to be smaller than your old fan combo.

this fan works best in a new installation.Unless you are very good with mudding drywall, I would recommend you get a contractor. The mounting brackets are very tight to the unit.

Answer: 
Either way part of the ceiling should come down to give access to joists. Plus patching a bigger piece of drywall is easier than little ones. The smaller opening was the old fan but I had to move it over because the joist space wasn't enough.

Answer: 
I was absolutely astounded that a company of this size didn't include the required opening dimension in their documentation. I cut my opening at a little over 6". The overall flange size is roughly 7 3/8". With the relatively narrow flange size, don't get too crazy with your drywall saw ;-)

The installation instructions show you how to hook-up the wiring at the unit if you wish to operate the fan independently from the light. Of course, you'll need a separate switch for each to do this.

A dimmer switch can be used if separate switches are wired for the light and the fan. A dimmer switch can NOT be used if one switch is used to control both the fan and light simultaneously.

70 CFM Ceiling Exhaust Fan with Recessed Light is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 96.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, installs with ease. I wanted to add a fan to the light in my walk-in closet. This was a perfect fit for the hole that was already there. It was very easy to remove the existing can light and install the new fan light. It removes stale air from the closet, and is very quiet. I wired it so the fan comes on whenever the light is turned on. A very easy home improvement that can be accomplished by the homeowner in less than a day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems Nice, pretty quiet Have not used this fan much yet but so far seems to work well and is relatively quiet compared to many bathroom fans. Looks great - cant even tell there is a fan there. Don't think that it handles a large volume of air but we have a small bathroom so it doesn't matter. I recommend wiring it so that the fan and the light are switched separately - a nice touch our electrician did - so you dont have to have the fan on every time you turn on the light. I would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NuTone 70 CFM Ceiling Exhaust Fan with Recessed Light Great product. Very quiet and works great. Easy to install.
Date published: 2016-08-02
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean looking quiet fan I just installed this in our bathroom and it is very quiet and has a very clean look. Those who have noise issues likely have an unbalanced fan or didn't install it in the best manner. You need to crimp the side brackets after after attaching it to the studs to keep the brackets from rattling. Also you need to space it 1/8" above the drywall to keep the sound from transmitting through the drywall. These are both in the instructions. I was concerned about the damper not staying closed, like others have stated, until I realized you need to install it in correct direction (which is NOT in the instructions.) The weighted side (with the extra "towers" of plastic sticking out) must be toward the bottom.
