Answer: 
A 4" duct would be undersized and lower your performance. Need 6" or larger, preferably 7" or larger. I used 5' of 3.25 x 10 rigid duct, transitioned to about 3' of 6" round flexible duct to an eave vent.

Answer: 
No. You need a 10" x 3 1/4 to a 4" adapter. ( I needed a 3" to 4" adapter too. Check the size of the existing duct) older homes are usually 3".

Answer: 
Thank you for your question about this exhaust fan. This unit has 300 CFM. Once a fan exceeds 110 CFM, you must increase the size of the duct. The motor and fan blade are removing too much air for a 4" duct. If you installed this unit and use a 4" duct, then you will void your warranty as that is not a recommended/correct installation. It will cause the motor to wear out much more quickly. If you have Read More

Answer: 
Thanks for your question. This unit is 300 CFM. that amount of air removal would be suitable for a room that's 128 square feet. However, you may want to consider installing a fan that's designed for light commercial projects. Call our Customer Service Department at 888-336-3948 for additional information on models and features.

Answer: 
I don't know why not. I was going to install mine that way if I didn't have access to the ceiling. I'd install it as high as you can if you're looking just for an exhaust fan. It also draws air, so you'll need a intake vent or it will slam the door shut.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Celling fan Yes this came the house quick a little pricy but it works great !!! June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quieter than expected Overall a very nice fan. Installed in garage for cigar smoke and woodworking dust removal. A little undersized for the garage, but still does a very good job. Installation was straightforward. Only con is that the wire junction box inside housing is very undersized. Had extra wires for a wireless switch relay and it was a tight fit--only reason I didn't give 5 stars. Sounds quieter than my fairly new bathroom fans that are much lower CFM. Shipping from HD was quick, about 2 business days, and came in perfect condition. March 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moves a TON of air as expected. Fan was bought for a small water closet off the main bathroom. It was meant to be major overkill because I think most contractor grade exhaust fans are majorly underpowered for removing unpleasant smells. It does not disappoint. I laugh at how much air it is pulling underneath the door and how much is coming out the soffit vent. It is quieter than the contractor grade fan it replaced but not as quiet as some of the Panasonic fans. (Which isn't necessarily a bad thing if you are wanting some white noise to conceal some more unpleasant ones). Install was not too bad and the way the motor installs in the housing was pretty well thought out. Opening for the fan is a bit larger than the old fan (roughly 10"x14") and I bought an adapter to convert the exhaust exit to 6" circular duct. January 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Most excellant bathroom fan The fan moves more air than any other I could find. This is my second one. The first one last for 15 years. It was used for 5 people, so was on quite a lot. Cleared out the steam in the bathroom rather quickly. Highly recommended. February 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This one is going back. When a product has design flaws, it is very difficult to rate it for quality or value any way but as I have here. The housing, motor and cage appear rugged. But the rectangular backdraft damper sticks and malfunctions. This is a key feature! If it sticks closed, no air exits. If it sticks open, warm room air escapes. The backdraft damper on this unit malfunctions both ways, and is clearly a design flaw, not a defective unit. Additionally it is very challenging to find an outlet boot that will interface properly with this unit. After multiple attempts to solve these problems, this one is going back. I could fabricate a custom boot but without a solution to the backdraft damper I am going to need to buy an external backdraft damper as well. But now we're heading in the direction of spending more money to fix this unit's deficiencies. February 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does the trick and it's a treat Contractor fan went out before I could tear it down from the ceiling. Was under powered and loud for a 12' ceiling and 10x10 bathroom. Always had excessive steam, moisture on walls, mold on white tile. Figured 300cfm had to work out. Had to cut a larger hole, fit it with a 6" pipe (old one used 4"). After install I was leary about what 4.5 zones would sound like. Well, it sounded quiter then the old fan and wow does it get the steam out. No more moisture on walls or mirror and tiles are staying white. Was the right choice. October 27, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by It's OK, but not powerful It's not strong enough for 225sf room, the power has seemed like 150CFM, you might need 2 of it for the same size room. Anyway it has a very quiet noise. January 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best purchase ever I am very pleased with this product. I will tell my friend. October 20, 2015
