Answer: 
The worse thing you can do is vent extremely moist bathroom air into the attic. Moisture will breed mold and mildew which is why you should strive to run ducting and vent directly outside of home

Answer: 
NEVER exhaust into the attic. We discovered the hard way after a low-bid contractor did that in our home. Living in Wisconsin, the moisture soaked the blown in insulation and ruined the ceiling drywall. Once it is installed, venting out the back wall of the attic was a simple task. In the winter you can see just how much moisture exits. Save yourself big bucks - don't take a short cut thinking the attic Read More

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: 
That would be the ideal location as you want top vent all the moisture laden air quickly to prevent mold and mildew. Down side is if you outside is many feet away the exhausted moisture laden air will have more distance required to vent...boils down to compromise and easy of installation

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 57 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Unit I purchased and installed this Panasonic bathroom exhaust fan for my son as a Christmas gift. Installed it today. It was ordered directly on line from Home Depot and I was told it would be here yesterday, Fri day May 27, 2016 and it was delivered to my house as scheduled. I had to be a little creative installing in an existing ceiling but with a little planning and thinking it thru it went in with out a hitch. All done and I'm very happy with the installation. The fan is so quiet that it gives the illusion that it won't do the job. I asked my son to let me know it works and I'm really hoping it performs as described. May 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent fan The fan has been in use for a month and has been great. It is quiet and powerful. Much quieter than our previous (cheaper) fan from a different manufacturer, which also had a lower exhaust volume rating. When the shower is on, it's hard to tell if the fan is running. At this point, I would buy another Panasonic fan. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A winner! So glad I read the reviews and purchased this replacement fan for our daughter's guest bathroom. Installation was relatively simple for the typical DIYer.. Be sure to use a good quality foil duct tape to insure sturdy attachment. No more damp walls or steamy mirrors in this bathroom! Chose a higher CFM fan than recommended for the bathroom size (10'x6'), and can actually feel the air pulled from under the closed bathroom door, unlike the old 50CFM fan. Very quiet. July 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect Bathroom fan is quiet, removes all moisture during showers.....good purchase July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well designed bath fan This fan was perfect for my master bathroom. Very quiet and performs as designed. I am looking to upgrade other bath fans now. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very quiet and does a good job Replaced a 50cfm fan with this one. No more steam, the ceiling is no longer moist after a shower, nor is the paint peeling any more. Took 4 hrs to install because of cutting a larger hole and dealing with lathe, plaster and old joists (100 yr old house). I'm not sure if that's quick or not. The guy who did it for me is advanced in his DIY skills. We easily used same exhaust tube as old fan (4") so that was good. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exceeded expectations Was pleasantly surprised at the low noise level. Fan does a very efficient job of venting the steam created by the shower. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easy to install and highly efficient installation was done without having to break into walls or the roof of the building and easily tied into the existing bathroom light switch. Very quiet operation. July 5, 2016
