What is the sone rating for this fan?

Asked by: Peter
I don't know the actual rating, but I can tell you that we don't notice it at all when in the shower.

Can this fan come in contact with insulation? Fiberglass batt?

Can this fan come in contact with insulation? Fiberglass batt?
Asked by: Chunk38
I can't see why not. I'm in the process of installing one right now inside a wall. Here is the back side. The intake (other side) is completely separated and air tight, so there is no way for anything to enter the fan other than from where it's supposed to. By the way, I've been using it for several weeks, and it is VERY quite. Also, the duct work is very easy, at least for me. It was easy to find a reducer and bend it to fit the input into the fan. Good luck!!

Does this require an installation kit of some kind, in addition to the fan itself?

Asked by: Matt
I just installed this last week. The only thing needed that you might call a kit would be a standard piece of reducing duct work, and only if you are going to use anything other than 4" duct work. The wiring is perfectly straightforward.

WhisperValue 80 CFM Ceiling or Wall Super Low Profile Exhaust Bath Fan ENERGY STAR* is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 7.

It did fit within the space of a 2 x 4 wall. I bought a plain old 4" to 3" reducer duct work piece for $5, and it worked just fine by bending the 4" end to fit on to the oblong duct coming out of the fan . You will need this to install the fan in a wall. It is definitely quiet enough; We don't notice it all when in the shower. I don't have any negative comments at all at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet for sure My only reservation is that there is not the ability to exhaust down, only transverse and up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Panasonic Fan Very quiet fan, good quality, but a bit pricey at 140$

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked well in wall I installed this fan in a wall and it worked well. The only issue is the size of the oval outlet exhaust. From what I can tell, the oval dimensions are different than standard oval duct work. A straight section of 4" ducting can be persuaded to fit the exhaust opening without much headache.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, Quiet, Slim Bathroom Fan Bought for a bathroom (wall mount) retrofit and found the fan very easy to install and connect. Fits comfortably inside the 4 inch stud cavity and simply screws to the vertical stud. Runs quiet and has that even tone that suggests the bearings are going to last a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Disappointed in color The fan is just what we needed for a specific space in our remodeled bathroom. It is very quiet and I love that. But I am disappointed in the color. The description says "Color Family Whites" but it is far more beige than white and clashes badly with the white heat lamp cover in the bathroom. One of them will have to be painted, and I am not looking forward to trying to do a good paint job on the entire grid of a ceiling fan!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective I ordered a Panasonic fan as a recommendation from my contractor as being quiet. The fan is defective and makes a tremendous amount of noise. My neighbor has a Panasonic fan and you can hardly hear it. When I tried to order a replacement this model has now been discontinued. I ordered another Panasonic model and will return this one to Home Depot.
