Customer Questions & Answers

Does this fan have a plug to make the electrical connection

My current fan has a plug that plugs in to a receptacle in the housing in the ceiling. Does this fan have a plug?
Asked by: Anonymous
No. It has wires that are designed to be attached to a switched electrical supply with wire nuts which you must supply.

Does this fan have to exhaust outside of building or can it exhaust up to attic like the existing one I have now?

What are dimensions of ceiling cut out for QTN80E?

I have a current fan, but space is limited and I'm sure it will not fit in current hole--need ceiling cut out specs, please
Asked by: Anonymous
You can check the fan housing size on the Nutone page if you look under "specifications" or "details to determine if your ceiling will need to be altered.

How to install after drywall installed?

The instructions show installation for new construction only. How should it be installed if the drywall is already installed? In some of the reviews some customers have said they had to cut off the bottom metal lips for the best fit. Do you recommend this or have any other tips?
Asked by: DIYER
If you have open access to the area above the ceiling, like an attic, you can do it. If you are installing it in a ceiling that is vaulted or between floors, you'd be better off with a product designed for retrofit applications.

QT Series Very Quiet 80 CFM Ceiling Exhaust Bath Fan, ENERGY STAR Qualified is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bath fan I bought this to replace a few year old NuTone fan which had gotten really loud as the bearings died out. I can't really comment on how this fan compares to the old one when it was new because it was installed prior to us living here. But I can say this fan is way quieter and way more effective than the old one was when we bought our house. It is very very quiet, can barely hear it when the water is not running and can't hear it at all when the water is running. It does an excellent job of pulling the steam out of the bathroom too, much better than the old one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we wanted/needed! This fan replaced our 20 year old builder grade bathroom fan. It definitely turns the air over quickly and is also nice and quiet. Based on the sones I thought that it would be even quiter than it actually is. You will hear it running but it is no comparison to how loud our old fan was. I am glad I didn't go with any of the fans that were around 2.5 sones. A note on installation - we paid someone to install it for us since we are not that handy. It did require cutting more room out of the ceiling and also adapting the venting to work with the 4 inch vent on the fan. It was well worth the money to pay our guy to deal with the frustration of trying to fit the fan into our existing setup. All said, we are happy with the performance of this fan in every way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective ventilation I installed this in an upstairs ceiling where I could work in the attic. Installation was easy, though the instructions were just for new installation (mine went into a 1920's house). It's quiet, and in our small bathroom (8'x7') it vents the shower steam effectively. It doesn't get 5 stars because it was much deeper than expected, so it wouldn't fit inside the attic floor (my fault really for not recognizing this as an issue). There are "low profile" versions that will do this, but I wanted a 4" exhaust pipe. It looks good (the grill is unobtrusive) and works well and is much quieter than most I've heard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This ventilation fan is extremely quiet and seems to be very effective in moving air to the outside. The fan was a challenge to install. With much scrutiny and thought and following a moderate expansion of the existing ceiling cutout, including adding some support framing, and removing the fan motor from the fan body, I was able to obtain a secure mount of the fan body to the ceiling joists. The instructions did not give a hint that this much would be required to complete the installation. Of course after installation I had to repair and paint the ceiling. We are all impressed with the completed installation and the very effective performance of the new fan. Of all the fans that I considered to replace my old fan, this one, in spite of the installation difficulty, proved to be the best selection for my situation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from super quiet...almost too quiet! this fan is so quiet, we sometimes forget that it's on and thus forget to turn it off! i did a lot of research on sones and so forth, and this is definitely on the whisper quiet end of the spectrum. i probably could've gone with something up to 1.5 sones and it would've been ok...but so far this one is doing the job well. i've noticed a huge difference when it comes to lower mirror used to steam up a lot and now that's a thing of the past. i wish it was a little smaller, but it's not a huge deal. would highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, quiet fan! This fan creates enough noise that you can be certain it is on, but is quiet enough that you can't hear it with the water running. The printed instructions are written for installation in new construction, but I made it work as a retrofit (installed from attic). I purchased this item 40% off from Home Depot, so it was a great deal. I installed it with a digital timer switch so I can leave it running for 30 minutes after my shower to maximize exhaustion of moisture. I wouldn't do this with my old fan because it was so loud I couldn't stand to let it run. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great bath fan! fan is quiet and for our 5x8ft bathroom it is more than adequate. we are really happy with it. easy to install too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality. Silent as promised. Fast delivery. This ourchase replaced a 4 sone unit installed in 1989. This is a high quality unit and the silence is great. Directions were good. It is a larger unit than the original and was a challenge to fit in an existing bathroom. I had to purchase a hanger mount kit that Home Depot carries, but that can not be ordered for mail delivery. We are about 3-hours from the nearest store, so had to find another supplier. This was a negative, from my point-of-view.
