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 71 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Couldn't use the fan We were excited to receive these bathroom fans (we bought 3) but discovered quickly that it would be difficult to retrofit the fans in our bathrooms. So we returned the fans. If we were a new construction project, I would definitely have loved to use this fan. But I have to wonder, isn't there a really nice benefit to having fans loud enough to cover uncomfortable noises??? Just a thought. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent fan We purchased the 80 CFM & 110 CFM versions of this fan for different size rooms. The 110 version is quite a bit louder than the 80, but the sound is a hum (a big improvement over the clanging industrial sound of the builder grades we replaced). The 80 version is a true "whisper," but obviously doesn't move air as quickly. The duct work in our 10-year old home is 3", so an electrician adapted the connection to fit on the 4" tube this fan & the 80 CFM require. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stop looking- just buy it! I had no idea a bath fan can be so quite and so efficient. I hate the fan sounds in bathrooms and I was really depressed I need one but this fan changed my point of view. it is quite, its efficient, it does an amazing work- seriously, stop searching- this is what you need August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good fan.. Very pleased with the quietness of the fan wish you carried this brand in your store. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product I bought this product based on the other good reviews. It did not disappoint me. August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just purchased We've only recently purchased and installed this ceiling fan. And because we have not had it very long, I can't yet give it a 5 star rating. However, if it proves to be as good as it seems, I would do so. Although the fan is not absolutely silent, it is extremely quiet, which is what I was looking for. I wanted a quiet ceiling fan (a) to encourage its use and (b) because I can't stand the sound of noisy ceiling fans. This product seems to fit that bill. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what we needed. This exhaust fan is the same size as the one we needed to replace. Could not find anything close in the store so ordered online. Works great! August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bathrrom Exhaust and heater Wanted a more powerful exhaust for water closet. So quiet you have to remember to turn it off. August 17, 2016
