Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AlanW Not for Retrofit
We bought two of these ceiling fans to help vent air out of our 3-car garage. The instructions for mounting within an existing ceiling (not a commercial drop-panel ceiling) were not clear and referred back to a new construction installation. I had to build the header frames around the fans, then mount those (with the fan unit) in the attic space between the ceiling joists. That would not have been bad, except the exhaust duct attachment ends up being too close to the header and required cutting out a semi-circle to allow for a duct adapter. In addition, the electrical junction box attached to the unit is made to be wired from below; however, that doesn't work with a retrofit installation. Also, the screws holding the electrical cover plate were machine tight and extremely difficult to remove with a hand screwdriver. If I had to do it over again - and for anyone else thinking of using these as a retrofit - I would still build the header frame around the fan housing, with the cut-out for the ducting, and I would open up the electric junction box before mounting the unit in the attic space.
HOWEVER, now that they are installed (wired serially into one switch), the fans are very, very quiet, considering they are 290 CFM capacity. We are very happy with the finished product and how they operate.

This fan moves twice the volume of air than the original. Plus the fan is significantly quieter.

Fan is a monster. We used it in a kitchen inside an office area that was having an issue with the smell of food through out the office space

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dcm0828 Awesome with moisture but loud
I bought this particular unit knowing that its capacity was a lot higher than what I supposedly needed for my small bathroom that measures 5'X8'. However I wanted a unit that would absorb all of the moisture that my old unit was not absorbing. My bathroom's walls outside the shower (tiled) would get all wet after even a quick shower. What a difference this unit makes! Absolutely no trace of moisture even during long hot showers!! I'm super impressed!! Nevertheless the unit is super loud, so I'm a bit disappointed on that respect because I was looking forward to reducing the amount of noise from my old unit which was also pretty loud. I did have to have someone install it and it took 2 people about 3 hours to install so it wasn't a simple job. Bottom line I'm very satisfied with my purchase since it's doing what I needed it to do.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tatonkaman Works great....
The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating, is it doesn't fit between the standard "16" on center", and thus you have to build a cradle, or some such modification on your own. If they don't make the dimensions of the fan to those spec's, they should at least include a kit with it to do so. They do have a kit included if you're going to hang it, thus installing it in a suspended ceiling. That being said, it wasn't too difficult to come up with some raw materials to make it work. Haven't ran it much yet, so I don't know how it will stand the test of time, but it's super quiet, and you hardly know it's on.

Exactly what I was hoping for. Much quieter than the original ones that were installed in the house. I should have changed it our years ago. One down and two more to go.
