Customer Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: MsKay
for a 50cmf fan what size should the vent pipe or hose be
Answered by: Bob

Sone, what is quietest high or low numbers? Is 50 CFM the smallest fan made for bathrooms?

Bathroom size, 5ft by 7ft, 8 ft ceiling. Can exhaust be reduced to 3 inches?
Asked by: Handyman
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

return policy

can i return this to my local store if it doesn't fit
Asked by: rcm650
During our home renovation, I purchased dozens of items on Home Depot's website. I returned 4 or 5 of them directly back to my local Home Depot. The key is when you return something to a Home Depot store that you purchased online, you must have the order number with you - then it's an easy return to the store. Without the order number, it's a big hassle. If you sign on each time you order something from Home Depot on line, they keep your order history, so you can always get to your order number. You don't need any other paperwork when you return things to the store if you have the order number. Good luck.

Installation manual is a bit confusing. The key difference between Installation I and II seems to be whether you install the bottom of the fan just above or just below the ceiling plaster board (look at the diagrams). Also the brackets seem hard to get into the guide, but pop out easily. For installation I (above ceiling), pick the right brackets (look carefully at picture), put them together, slide into the guide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Truly A "Whisper" Unbelievably quiet exhaust fan. I installed it in a 1/2 bath right off my kitchen. In retrospect it may be too quiet to kind of mask other bathroom "noises" if you will? I will definitely be replacing my 20 year old exhaust fan in master bath with a larger CFM Panasonic Unit, but with a timer for I've caught myself forgetting to switch off this one due to its quietness.

Outstanding packaging (someone even folded over the end of some tape making it easier to take off). Extremely quiet — can barely hear it working. Works great in our small bathroom (3x7)— you can feel the air coming in from under the door when it’s running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Near silent It's an exhaust fan that you can barely hear, what's not to love. Note the exhaust diameter is 4 inches.
