Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tdaug68 Don't believe wattage for incandescent light
A lot to like about this fan. Quiet, functional, nice appearance. Instructions indicate that you can use up to a 100W incandescent bulb, so I installed a 75W incandescent bulb. I now have a nice brown spot on the lens where the 75W bulb has heated it up. I would use a CFL, not to save the planet, but saving the lens might be a desirable outcome. Haven't tried to get Home Depot to replace the lens yet, but I intend to try. What shows up as the bulb and socket in the picture of the lens is a brown spot to the naked eye.

The exhaust fan is extremely quiet for an 80 CFM fan. The integrated light is very helpful for a night light when quest are staying and using the master bedroom and bath. Will upgrade my other master bath with this model. Would recommend this to all wiho are looking to upgrade or install new.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by longball07 .8 Sones...what does a 3 Sone fan sound like...airplane taking off?
We bought the 80 cfm over the 110 cfm because we wanted a quieter fan. This fan is rated at 0.8 Sones and if that is suppose to be quiet, then I would hate to hear how loud a 3 Sone fan is. Given the Sone rating of this fan, very disappointed. Almost sounds louder then the builder quality fan that this replaced....really dissapointed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Well worth it!!
We love the quietness of this fan. It can run in the middle of the night without waking anyone else up. We also love the night light feature because who needs 75 watts or more of bright light staring you in the face in the middle of the night,
We love this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tc13 Great fan....Quiet and asthetically pleasing!!
This fan was a great purchase. I read several reviews where people claimed this fan to be noisy....Either they installed something incorrectly, there is something wrong with their fan, or they are just complainers. This fan is very quiet and when I'm using the sink or shower I can not even tell that it is running.
The fan/light is very nice looking and compliments the bathroom nicely.
I'm an electrician so the wiring was very easy, for me, and installation was a breeze.
I bought this light for my house and will recommend it again to customers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stan51 Whisper Quiet
I replaced an old bathroom fan, that sounded like a jet taking off with this very quiet unit. We have mistakenly left it on by mistake because of not hearing that it is still on.
The only negative comment about this unit is that the "night light option" is useless unless you have a separate wall switch to turn it on. They should have made it so that when the main light is off the night light automatically comes on.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by John71 Noisier than expected
We bought 2 bathroom fans, one the Nutone and for the other bath in the floor below another fan since the space was too tight in height for the Nutone. Both had the same low noise rating, which was important since the fans being replaced were noisy and not powerful enough. The other brand was very silent as expected; the Nutone was surprisingly noisier. we requested another fan motor from Nutone Customer Service since the fan seemed to wobble a bit when holding it out of the casing. Customer Service was friendly, understanding, and efficient and sent another fan motor . To our disappointment, the replacement was just as noisy. The noise is not unacceptable, but just not as good as the other fan.

Typical installation - no surprises. Had hoped it would be quieter but it is not bad.
