INSTALLING AN EASY INSTALL FAN IN NEW CONSTRUCTION
  • Switch the power off at the fuse box. 
  • Remove the wiring panel or knockout from the fan housing with a flathead screwdriver. 
  • If necessary, assemble the fan according to manufacturer instructions. This may include attaching the damper and duct connector to the fan housing. 
  • Mount the housing to the ceiling. The bottom of the housing should be flush with the ceiling and perpendicular to the joist or stud. Tip: If mounting housing to an eye joist, use wood blocking. 
  • Connect the duct. Secure the duct to the duct connector using duct tape or clamps. 
  • Connect the house and fan wiring. Pull the existing wire through the hole and into the housing. Connect the power cable and wiring according to the wiring diagram provided in manufacturer’s instructions. Reattach the wiring box cover. 
  • If necessary, slide the blower into the housing and secure. 
  • Finish the ceiling work – the hole should align with the edge of the fan housing. 
  • Slide the grille into place and secure. 
  • Turn the power back on once installation is complete.

INSTALLING AN EASY INSTALL FAN IN EXISTING CONSTRUCTION
  •  Switch off the power at the fuse box. 
  • Remove the existing fan, leaving the old duct work and wiring. 
  • Measure the ceiling opening and determine if it is large enough to accommodate your new fan. If not, you must cut around the current opening in order to increase the size of the opening. Be careful not to cut through any ducting or wiring when doing this. 
  • Follow steps 3-10 of the new construction installation to complete.
