How do you know what size to purchase when replacing an existing exhaust fan? My home was built in 72. Does that matter?

Answer: 
Ours was built in 92. The electrician that was doing work on our remodel says he prefers this fan and the Home Depot price was cheaper than he gets from distributor. It's also a universal fit, as I understand

Answer: 
The age of the home shouldn't matter. It depends on the size of the room the fan will go into. The bigger the room, the bigger the fan. Typically, you will want 1 CFM rating for each square foot of floor space. So, if you're bathroom is 80 square feet, you'll want an 80 CFM fan. 50 is the lowest CFM you can get and 110 is the highest. I hope that helps.

Answer: 
I general, the larger/CFM output fans are louder but not always. Panasonic Whisper Ceiling models start at 50 CFM with <.3 Sones; 80 CFM is .3; 110 is .8 while 150 is .6

Answer: 
Yes, 50 is the lowest CFM and 110 is the highest CFM available. I believe Sone ratings are from about .8 to 4.0 sones. The higher the number, the louder the unit. I have a .9 sone and a 4.0 in two different rooms. The difference is huge. The .9 sone fan is extremely quiet (so quiet that sometimes you forget it's on if you leave the room and still very quiet when you're in the room). The 4.0 fan is very Read More

The 4.0 fan is very loud and annoying and can be heard all over my 1,200 sf home. When my 4.0 sone fan fails, I'll replace it with a .9 fan - no question. Read Less

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Much quieter than old fan I purchased this fan to replace a very loud fan. I have had previous experiences with Panasonic fans so knew that it would be quieter than the existing one. This new fan although much much quieter than the old one feels like it pulls more air too. Installation required making an oversize hole because there was not any access from above. Also, I had to go down from the 4" diameter duct to the existing 3". Overall it took about a half day, including the drywall patch. Add another couple hours for finishing the drywall patch and then paint. August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WhisperCeiling 50 CFM Very quiet. I bought 2 as replacements. First went in well. Second was a very hard. as it was in the middle between rafters so the mounting bars provided were too long to fit. Had to have 2 people, one above and one below, to tilt the thing and force the bars in. Then got is all in only to realize the exit pipe was not in where it belonged. Ended up just taping it on as was the end of the day. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent fan We had these installed in multiple baths in our home by our remodel team. They are quiet enough that someone directly outside of the room will never know you had to press it into service to " clear the air" We replaced 20 year old fans that were so noisy, that everyone in the house knew you turned on the fan There is probably a separate vent issue in one of the baths as there was water in the vent when we pulled the old vent. That bath does not clear humidity as well as the other. October 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very quiet This unit is very quiet - so much so that I forget to turn it off sometimes. I'm happy with it as I wanted a quiet fan. Would buy again. September 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Quiet This fan is so quiet that it is difficult to tell it is running. Excellent quality. Installation is not difficult if you remove the exhaust vent and AC connection box first. After installing the vent and box, the rest of the unit just slips into place. This was not covered in the installation instructions. August 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smart Purchase Quiet, energy efficient, effective for small baths June 7, 2016
