Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ajs Disappointing to say the least
I purchased this recessed fan to install above my shower. My duct that runs from the fan to the vent outside is at the most 7 feet. While this fan is very quiet, it performs at a subpar level. My bathroom is about 50 square feet meaning I would need a 50 CFM size fan for proper ventilation. The 744NT fan is 70 CFM so in theory, one would think this fan would be plenty capable of handling my set up. Unfortunately, this fan does not come close to adequately eliminating steam from the shower and I consistently have moisture spots on the ceiling after a shower. Even with the bathroom door cracked open a few inches for extra ventilation, this fan still cannot keep up. Overall, while I like the quietness of this fan, I enjoy the look of it, the practical use of this fan simply fails on all levels and thus, I would not recommend this product to anyone looking to install it in a bathroom/shower application. By contrast, I also have a nutone fan only (no light) installed in my other bathroom. That fan is a 50CFM in a bathroom that is less than 45 square feet & that fan works great. Perhaps the way the recessed fan/light combo is designed prevents the steam from easily being removed. Maybe the light blocks the airflow too much. Whatever the reason, the 744NT is a great disappointment & I now wish I had not installed it. I have also contacted nutone directly to voice my concerns so perhaps they will have a solution.

love that I can match these with the can lights throughout the house that I already have. Purchased two and now back for another for a different bathroom to continue the flow. There was a fan that was just needing to be replaced and I felt that this was a great option and illusion :)

Leaks wind back into the bathroom. Partly the roof vent. Partly the exhaust fan.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by drking Great fan. Very quiet.
Contractors installed this fan light combo fairly easily. The fan is pretty quiet and works great. Bought the daylight bulb and the recessed light is bright. The design looks like its just a recessed light and you can't tell it's a fan until you flip the switch. Had it wired so one switch is for the light, the other for the fan. Bought two and I'm glad I did.

I installed this light/fan in a fairly small bathroom that consistently grew mold despite opening the window to the outside. After installing this fan, the moisture level is down to near-zero, even during hot, lengthy showers. It should be noted that I mounted the unit directly over a shower enclosure in an 8 foot ceiling.
My only complaint is that unless I'm missing something, given the construction, the fan motor may be difficult or impossible to replace when that time comes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chi A quiet exhaust fan
My contractor has just installed it last week. This exhaust fan is really good, it is quiet, and works great for my bathroom (about 70 sq feet). I used it to replace the original ceiling light in the bathroom, but since it is a recessed light, it is not as bright as the regular ceiling light. I have a little bit regret that I haven't asked my contractor to install 1 extra recessed light in the ceiling. However, I used a large CFL light bulb (equal to 150w) has solved my problem.
