Customer Questions & Answers

A contractor installed this fan instead of the old Newton fan in the small bathroom 4ft x 8 ft. The mirror is getting mist. Any suggestions?

The contractor initially installed 80 CFM Panasonic fan to vent the 4ft x 8ft bathroom with shower replacing old fan. We were getting mist on the mirror quickly after starting the shower. Then the contractor replaced it with 290 CFM Panasonic fan. We are still getting mist on the mirror. What can be the reason for my mirror getting mist when 290 CFM is running in 4ft x 8 ft bathroom? Is there a way to fix the problem? The fan is vented outside the attic. My old fan was noisy, but never allowed mist to be on the mirror.

what does CFM stand for?

Asked by: bones
Cubic Feet per Minute - it's a measure of how much air the fan can move/circulate, so you can compare different models for varying room sizes.

Description says 6" duct adapter... does this mean the vent is already 6", or that it's the standard 4" with an OPTIONAL adapter? Thanks

Asked by: Michael
it's 6" standard

The fan works very well and is incredibly quiet for a 290 CFM fan. Panasonic should modify the design to make it easier to install in existing structures. To say the installation was difficult is an understatement. The problems start when you try and fit the fan through the hole you cut in your ceiling (the hole you cut using the Panasonic supplied template). It is not physically possible to get the fan's duct and electrical box through the hole. You must disassemble those parts, insert the fan, have a friend in the attic try to place the duct and electrical box back on, while you hold the fan, then try and reinstall the screws, etc. Crazy! In the end I've got the install finished and it works great. Just an extremely frustrating installation.

The home builder had put a 100 cfm fan which was not pushing all the moisture from the shower and causing mold to build up on the ceiling. After I put this in the bathroom ceiling and connected to the existing fan switch, this worked very well. I dont even see moisture build up on shower glass. This is extremely powerful fan however does not make as much noise. Very happy and satisfied

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
