If this unit is installed in a "typical" 2" x 4" framed wall with 1/2" sheet rock attached there will not be an issue. I installed one through the 6" thick wall of a log cabin. I constructed a box measuring app. 12" x 12", 3 deep, drilled a 6" hole throughout it, and mounted onto the wall directly over the hole cut in the exterior wall. Within the thickness of the constructed box the electrical housing fit perfectly.

Cost estimate for installing this fan

Asked by TooBusy August 31, 2018

Answers

Depending on whether or not there is a power source present, it should take a couple hours to install. Must be worked on from inside the room and outside where it is to be exhausted.

Can this be used to be installed in a ceiling?

I could not get into the corner of my attic in our master bath to install a ceiling mount. I purchased this and it was an easy install. Works great. It is on the noisy side but I'm more concerned about functionality. Great product for the price.

Pros: It does the job. It isn't too loud. It provided a wall vent for a half-bath on the first floor, where a ceiling vent would have been much more difficult to install. Cons: after about two years, the external louvers warped. One has fallen out. The other two no longer open properly. Metal louvers would have been more durable. This isn't even the sunny side of the house. You can get replacement parts. But this part is half the cost of the whole unit.

We found this item on Home Depot website and decided it was just the right thing for our project. We needed a kitchen exhaust to the outside of our house and wanted something that looked pleasing. The project was fairly easy requiring approximated 3 hours, but I am only a moderate do-it-yourselfer. Tools needed were; drill, drywall saw and extra wire to run to the switch. We added the switch/outlet combo and ran the wire through the upright joist 2x4 through a hole provided by the drill. In addition, we added the exhaust hood to the outside (also available at Home Depot) even though a plastic vent cover is include in the purchase. The hood was an additional cost, but reasonable and worked well with the fan's fittings. We also painted the vent cover to match the color of the house's exterior. Nice fan and looks and runs great.

This fan does exaust very well but is quite noisy because of the grill design the wiring box is a bit tricky but can be done if you are patient.

Used to replace an existing 40 yr old unit when re-siding the house. Same easy electrical connection and through-the-wall fit. Outside Vent and inside Grill required no changes to be made to mounting surfaces. Quick and easy.

Have a small closet inside of the laundry room that we use for the littler box. Being such a small room, it didn't take long for the odor to seep out into the laundry room. With the closet sharing a wall with the garage, I decided to vent the room into the garage. Not wanting the fan to run 24/7, I used a timer switch that can be set when needed.

The fan works well. It does require drilling a couple of 6" holes so be prepared for that. The electrical hook-up requires removing and replacing the motor, but that is easy. All in all, I am happy with the product, and the pricing was very good.
