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

This question is from WhisperCeiling 150 CFM Ceiling Exhaust Bath Fan, ENERGY STAR*

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: 
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: 
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.

Answer: 
Based on manufacturer's owner manual statement, it can be used as a ventilation system toward outside of roof via a conduit. Don’t forget to install a roof top vent port also.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fast shipping Shipping was quick, and no damage was found. My architect and general contractor recommend me this particular exhaust bath fan for the master bathroom (200sf). Homedepot is my reliable place to shop for remodeling. May 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product Good power with low noise. Fast shipping.Easy to install and looks great. May 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Missing adaptor Bought two fans. They are both missing the 6-to-4 inch adaptor that is advertised in both the Home Depot website and the mfg handbook. Homedepot said I must go through mfg...and mfg says they can't help me. Ugh! April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet is Good This bathroom fan was recommended by an electrical contractor I had worked with on our kitchen project. Although it is not as quiet as I expected, it is so much guieter than the builder grade one it replaced! I'm guessing less than a quarter of the noise! It did require an upgrade in the duct diameter from 4" to 6". March 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very good once installed like others said, this fan is a little difficult to install and almost impossible without access from above. it is more geared towards new construction than retro-fitting. but once in, it performs great. Some of the reviewers claim it doesn't have a lot of suction for a 150cfm fan. please remember, this is a fan designed for a 6in duct which is more than twice the area a 4in duct has. that in return means the air velocity through the fan/duct can be a lot lower. so the fan doesn't need a lot of suction to achieve the same cfm rating a 4in duct fan gets. which means it runs a lot quieter. so overall this is an excellent fan - once it is installed January 26, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hardly a whisper there are much quieter products, it is not a whisper. They claim also it contains 6" to 4" reducer; it does not. March 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome I don't think you can buy a better fan for the money. No bells and whistles, just quiet and powerful. No steam on the mirror at all. Installed myself in half a day, I tied the power into the light fixture. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by exhaust fan Great fan! Not in stock had to order,had it shipped to my local store. Came sooner than expected. Very happy with service. February 23, 2016
