I have a high ceiling bath, and would like to install this in the end wall of the shower about 8ft above the floor, with a 4" duct running through a 2ft wide linen closet and out the side wall of the house to a 4" dryer vent. Will it work OK mounted on its side in a side wall?

Answer: 
No recommended to install in a wall since it will place stress laterally on the motor shaft. This fan is meant for ceiling installation

Answer: 
Yes if you have the space. Most walls are 3.5" or 5.5" The motor doesn't know if it's sideways and there is no overhung load on the bearing to speak of. So I say yes you can.

Answer: 
A damper is a round flap in the outlet of the fan, so is no air coming back from the outside of the house

Answer: 
Where air leaves the fan, there's a light weight, plastic flap that opens when air pressure is present (when the fan is on), and closes when the fan is off to prevent air from outside the home blowing back through the fan into your room. Works the same way as most dryer vents where they leave the home.

Answer: 
Yes, it is.
This Panasonic fan has a built-in damper to prevent backdraft, which helps to prevent outside air from coming through the fan. Also, thanks to our efficient, cool running motors and fluorescent bulbs, it does not create excessive heat-a common problem with recessed lighting fixtures and some competitors' fan/light combinations. Loose fill or batt insulation can be placed directly over the fan

Answer: 
Do you mean "quiet"? If this is what you mean, it's rated 0.3 cones which is a measurement of quietness. 0.3 sones is one of the better ratings of quietness than the 3.0 sone rated fans made some 10-20 years earlier

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 82 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great exhaust fan! Extremely quiet The fan is very quiet and good value for the quality product. October 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Darn near silent. Moves a lot of air, but is very, very quiet. Can barely tell it's on, and if the water is running, you can't hear it at all. Probably a little overkill for my small bathroom, but it certainly won't fog up in there with this thing on. I'm considering a timer, because it has already been left on inadvertently. It's really that quiet. Instructions weren't the clearest, but if you're going to be installing this yourself, you probably can figure it out. I would highly recommend that rigid ducting be used when installing this unit. It's so powerful that it will make the flexible stuff move around unless it is anchored in place, which might cause noise. If you want a bath fan that works without a lot of noise, get this one. October 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quite fan Quite fan & easy to install. I'm electrician always recommend this fan to my costumer. October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SOOO Quiet, almost too quiet though. :-) Overall great product, but Almost TOO Quiet.. it is so quiet is does not muffle any "noises in the bathroom" so if you are looking for a exhaust fan that creates an ambient buzz, this is not the one, but I am not complaining, just mentioning, other than that AMAZING Product, does a great job and is Super Quiet.. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quality exhaust fan. September 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Louder than advertised I recently bought two. While they are quieter than the ones I replaced they are much louder than the demo unit at a local plumbing supply store. I used a sound meter to see how loud they are and found that they are both 3 sones. I uninstalled one to see if it was quieter when not mounted to the joists. It was just as loud. This is not at all what I expected. I would not have purchased these if I knew they would be so loud. October 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product and looks amazing Great product and looks amazing. We have another in our other bathroom. It is very quiet October 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent quality Excellent product. Very quite. Removes moisture that was present in bathroom. October 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent bath fan - just too deep for my attic floor framing Just unpacking this heavy well-designed fan was an indication of its high-quality construction. I wanted to install the fan in a bathroom with an attic above, but I discovered that the fan would project above the attic floor because the attic joists here are 2x8's, meaning that we have only 7 1/2" of clear space in which to mount the fan. The fan housing was about 1 1/2" larger than the clear space, and I did not want it to stick up above the attic floor. I returned the fan to Home Depot without a problem, and I had to buy a NuTone model that has a smaller profile. I was amazed at the difference in construction quality between these two products. The NuTone unit was very light, thin gauge aluminum with a cheap plastic exhaust tube that actually broke during installation. The Whisperceiling fan, on the other hand, had a heavy-gauge integral 4" exhaust tube that was essentially indestructible. It also was heavier and more solid than the Nu-Tone. I only wish my ceiling framing could have accommodated the somewhat larger fan box size because the "made in USA" Nu-Tone unit is clearly inferior and less substantial than the WhisperCeiling unit. By the way, both units are rated at 110 CFM. September 27, 2016
