yes, you will need to open the drywall in order install the fan. The opening needs to be large enough so that you can install/attach the ducting and electrical connections.

I have no window in my bathroom, and I live in an apartment building. Will this work?

Asked by Wanda January 4, 2016
1
Answer

If you are replacing an existing ceiling fan you should be fine. There is no connection between having a window in a bathroom and having a ceiling fan work. It requires electricity and a vent to move moist air out of your bathroom. If you don't have an existing fan then you may find it difficult to run a vent from the bathroom ceiling to the outside. You can always try mounting a "box" fan in your window opening and ventilating moist air that way. Also, landlords probably don't want renters chopping up their bathroom ceilings so the box fan might be your best option.

Asked by Unhappy November 24, 2016

Answer

From the item description it sounds like the fan runs continually in the lower speed mode until moisture is detected and then it ramps up to the higher speed. I think you only need to install a switch if you want to physically turn it off for some reason.

Can I use a reducer to reduce it to fit my existing 4 inch hose ?

Asked by michael June 8, 2019

Answer

The exhaust fan is tested an rated using 6" ducting. Changing it to 4" will change all the performance levels.

The fan is great. It moves a good amount of air in our 12’x8’ bathroom. It’s very quiet to where you are wondering if it’s actually moving air. But it is! The mirror still fogs, but it doesn’t stay that way for nearly as long. Truth be told I take long and hot showers, and it would be hard for any fan to move that much steam quick enough to not fog. When my kids take showers there is almost no fogging on the mirror. Installation was a little rough (for me). The directions were of little help (in my opinion). So, just FYI: You might need a reducer and ducting tape to connect it to a previous venting hose. Also we had to take off the black nozel or tube (whatever you want to call it) on the side that connects to the duct before you put it in the hole or it won’t fit. Putting that black plastic piece back on in the attic was a pain. It was larger than our last fan so we had to cut a bigger hole in ceiling. I may not have done this correctly but the extenders to connect to the studs (rafters) in the attic, stuck out on the sides far enough to where I had to cut even more drywall so they could make it through the hole. The amount I had to cut was beyond what the plastic cover would hide so after installing fan there was patching, texturing and painting to do. Don’t know if this was user error or product flaw but that was my experience. After it was all said and done, it is a good fan so far. I have had it for 2 months now.

(What's this)
Be careful if buying this fan for a remodel. I recommend new construction only. Not told on the box is that the humidity-sensing feature requires an extra "hot" wire to the fan, which means installation of a 3-way light switch and replacing the standard 2+1 wire from the switch to the fan with 3+1 wire: one hot carries the switched power, so it turns on/off with the switch, the other hot is on 24/7 so the fan can turn on any time is senses humidity. The switch is an easy swap, but running new wire can be anywhere from no-sweat to impossible, depending on your house. I bought this assuming it was like the different humidity fan I have in another bathroom: flip the switch once or twice to change modes from auto to on. Easy, right? Well that's not how this one works. I couldn't run new wire and was going to just wire it for manual switched mode only, then remembered I had another line in the attic I could get the 24/7 power from, so, ta-da, I now have both manual and humidity modes. To wire this fan you have to unplug, unfasten, and remove the motor from the fan box. It's not that hard, but why not just make a bigger access hole on the box? The blower housing of the first fan I got broke when I tried to remove it; an assembly flaw had locked it in where it was supposed to slide out. I returned it and the new blower slipped out as designed and the wiring went smoothly. The instructions are clear in both text and drawings. The fan can be set to run in a higher speed to overcome an exhaust path with lots of bends, but I stuck with the normal speed, which is darn near completely silent. When running, it will hold a single square of toilet paper against any part of the grate. The humidity-sensor setting is knob-adjustable from just inside the grate. Overall I found it a more complicated that I thought it need to be (removing the motor and needing new wiring), but the net result is an uber-quiet fan that will still vent the bathroom when the guest forgets to turn on the fan for their shower…or turn it off too soon. Now if they could just add a stink-sensing feature to it! :-)

The AirKing 80 CFM bathroom exhaust fan is freaking QUIET! I was checking functionality and could not even hear the fan turn on! It’s rated at < .3 sones, that’s quiet! I have a small bathroom that I’m renovating, this fan will be perfect for it. The included hanger bars will make hanging easy; I do still have to lug myself to the attic to layout and install the exhaust ducting. The fan exhaust port is 6”diameter, so keep this in mind when getting ducting. The included instructions that came with the fan was a bit disappointing and in some ways inaccurate from the model I’m reviewing which is humidity sensing. The manual that was included covered standard, humidity sensing, and motion sensing models and the different wiring instructions for the various choices. While this may have made it easy to print the instruction manuals, it’s a pain for the end-user to follow through the various models. I would have preferred a manual only for this humidity sensing model, etc. Also the manual is lacking in that it did not indicate the variable dial to set the humidity point at which point the fan will turn on. The humidity dial has ‘On’ and numbers 10 to 90 indicated the levels of humidity points. “On” sets the fan to always be on when the wall switch is turn on; so basically “manually’ on. Set the dial to other levels depending on your preference. Other than the silly installation manual fiasco, this seems to be a well made and QUIET 80 CFM exhaust fan.

All of these bathroom fans are rather cheaply made in my opinion. The most important thing to me is - is it quiet! This fan advertises "Almost Silent operation" - and when I first turned it on, I thought it didn't work! You cannot even hear this run standing right next to it - WOW, I was impressed. This particular model has a 6" vent line and the entire unit is rather large. It is humidity controlled and rated to continuous operation. I'm impressed with the noise level as well as the fan in the unit. I plan On installing several of these and we'll see how they hold up.

It’s big at 14” square, but it moves a lot of air out and is a great option for older homes that have overhead power, but no second switch on the wall.
