What is the dual adaptor for 4" or 6" ducts?

This question is from WhisperCeiling 150 CFM Ceiling Exhaust Bath Fan, ENERGY STAR*
Asked by
Chattanooga, TN

Is the adaptor a collar or fitting of some type and how is it attached to the unit. The pictures would indicate that a 6" duct fitting is standard. How does the 4" duct adaptor option get connected?

Answer: 
I didn't see an adaptor when I purchased this item. This unit I think is best used with 6in. ducting from the fan to the vent out of the building. If you're looking to use 4in. I would suggest buying the fan with the 4in. collar not this one.

good question. mine didn't come with any 6 to 4in adapter. which was okay for me as I ran a 6in duct all the way outside.
And even if they included an adapter ... i wouldn't use it. this fan is designed for a 6in duct which makes it run most efficient and very quiet. if you connect it to a 4in duct, it will either run louder or will move less air. if you need to connect to a 4in duct, my suggestion is to

Answer: 
There is NO such 4-in/6-in adaptor in the package. You have to BUY a 6-in/4-in reducer separately.
The fan only comes with a 6" duct fitting, which is factory screw-mounted on the fan housing. So, the manufacturer posted false claim on its specification section.

Answer: 
Roy, I'm sure this refers to 360 degrees, meaning full circle. Geometry tells us that 90* is a right angle or 1/4 circle, 180* a straight line or half-circle. The fan does not move air from any particular direction, rather it pulls air from every direction or a full circle pattern.

Answer: 
No, don't do it. Any ventilation fan exhaust must be directed outside the home. Otherwise you risk mold, wood rot, pests, or a grease fire.

Answer: 
there are fans that install more easily without access from above. I would not recommend this one for installation from below only unless you are willing to cut open the ceiling a few inches bigger than the fan housing (which is 10 1/4 x 10 1/4) and patch it up after it is in.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent fan, very quiet! This is an amazingly quiet fan. As long as your ducting doesn't restrict the air flow too much it is barely audible. It now moves enough airflow that my bathroom mirror doesn't fog any more. This was my second fan I've purchased of this model. The first one I purchased has been running 24/7 for 6+ years now with no problems, and still super quiet. I think it's meant to be installed from above, but I was easily able to install from below by cutting the hole about 2-3 inches wider on one end. This allows you to angle the fan and slip it up into place, and the included vent cover will hide the slightly oversized hole. October 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I had this fan installed inside my tub/shower area. It is very quiet and really gets the steam out of the bathroom. October 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It is quieter than the original. Cannot hear it over shower…barely hear with sink faucet running. This fan has a 6 inch vent which required you to separate the vent adapter from the fan body to install through the ceiling body square cut out. went easy with two person hand up to a person in the attic to align. the install could be done by one person, but you would really need to have three hands. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by super quiet fan the fan was very easy to install with or without instructions. September 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great bath fan This fan replaced the one the builder put in which was highly inefficient and noisy. This new fan is very quiet and efficient. It removes the humidity very quickly. No more fogged up window and mirror. The fan was installed by an electrician. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Bathroom Fan This fan is just as quiet as the name suggests. The 6in. ducting moves a ton of air and keeps our busy bathroom moisture free! I recommend this fan to anyone looking to reduce the amount of humid air that can be generated from a frequently used hot shower or bath. October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solved my mirror fogging issue For me this was a retrofit installation. I had my bathroom remodled which increased the bathroom from 90 square feet to 200 square feet. Immediately afterwards I realized I had a mirror fogging issue. This fan solved this issue. I did have access to the attic but installation was a bit of a pain. Sliding the fan betweeen the sheetrock and the joits was made easy witha hack saw blade. After that installation was pretty strait forward. I also upgraded to 6 inch exhaust piping throughout. Fan is quiet but I can hear it running. Mine does have a slight delay before I can hear it running. I think that is due to the time it takes the fan to get to operating speed. Mine takes 1 to 1.5 seconds to start and stop. I like this fan as the value was good vise a 110 cfm. The shipping was fast and the packiing was excellent. September 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Quiet Good sturdy product and very quiet. Good instructions. This model has 6" duct exhaust size. Best for new construction, but when installing in an existing room, mount from inside attic and caulk. You can mount from below, but must partially disassemble unit to fit through the 10.5" x10.5" hole (not the best option). Consider adding 2x4 framing as nailers in the attic. A timer switch is a good idea too. Consider insulating exhaust duct in attic to reduce condensation in winter and sloping the exhaust duct down slightly toward the exit in case condensation results.
