Not without additional access; e.g., suspended ceiling.

I owe my husband an apology

My husband installed this in our bathroom. He is not a handy man but he tries. It went surprisingly well, easy to replace the old one and no unexpected hassles. Here’s where it gets tricky. First time flipping it on in the morning and I thought, “he didn’t do this right. It’s not even running.” BUT IT WAS! It is so super quiet compared with our old fan that I seriously didn’t even know it was on. It’s done a great job fighting the clouds upon clouds of steam generated by four daughters who have never heard the term “water conservation.” The only drawback: it may be too quiet to cover up embarrassing bathroom noises. Great value, easy install, super improvement for us.

Just installed. Good quality product. Met my expectations. Installation was a little challenging since I replaced an existing fan. Had no access from above the ceiling. To minimize ceiling dry wall cutting, I removed the side hangers and attached new fan with screws through holes I drilled in the unit’s side wall. And, the unit’s duct attachment size was slightly larger than the existing flex duct. I opened up the existing duct’s attachment point by making several diagonal cuts at the end of the existing duct. Then taped the two pieces together with duct tape. Solution worked fine.

Check details on your old fan first!
Customer review from broan-nutone.com logo
This was a great upgrade on the very loud original fan in a small bathroom. This one loud enough to know it’s on which I like, but quiet enough too. More efficient than old one, too. I like that you can select bulb type on this model. An LED bulb works fine with no buzz. If you are replacing an existing fan, I suggest you pay attention to where the duct and electrical connections are first, and compare to where they are on this model. I had to modify the 4 inch pipe with an aluminum flex piece since the connection was on a different side on this model. And the wire connection was also a few inches longer to a corner on this model. My house wire just made it without modifying. So I had to spend considerable time in the attic in installing this. If you are replacing an existing fan and don’t have attic access this fan probably won’t work for you unless the design of the old fan is the same.

The instructions are difficult to read with three columns of cramped small print in Spanish and English - switching columns for the languages from one page to the next. You'll want to read it in pdf form from the Home Depot site so that you can enlarge it. Installation was a pain for me. It is better suited for new construction. For me, a roomside replacement was impossible for these reasons which may also apply to you: 1) My old unit was nailed to a joist in the attic, so I had to crawl up there to pry out those nails. 2) The wiring from my attic did not provide enough length for me to make the connection to the new fan below the ceiling. This fan's wiring is accessed from the top of the unit. 3) Using just the inside mounting holes on this fan did not seem like they would be enough to keep the unit from vibrating a little. I could make it wiggle with a gentle push, so I also used the mounting at the top in the attic. 4) The duct on this new fan was on the opposite side from the old one. This also had to be changed from the attic. -- Another problem is that one of the white wires on this fan was tucked deep in to the wiring compartment and was not visible and easily accessible like the other wires. I was expecting two white wires, but thought that maybe this fan only needed one. When the fan did not work, I almost detached it for a return due to a missing wire. Just to be sure, I fished around in the opening and barely found the "missing" white wire nestled along the side and out of sight. The instructions say to "snap the damper/duct connector onto housing". There was no snapping happening. I just used tape to make sure it stays in place. You'll want to use gloves at times - some of the metal edges feel sharp. It was far more work than I expected, partly due to my shallow attic space, but now that it is done it seems to be working fine. At 50 CFM I still have steam after a shower, but much less than I did before. I'm pleased so far. It makes sound, which I prefer, but is not noisy.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I got this fan a few weeks ago when my bathroom fan started "squealing" occasionally. i did not want to crawl in the attic until cooler days prevailed, but last week it finally gave up the ghost. So, on a not too scorching Saturday morning I got the nerve to climb up in the attic to replace the fan. Installation was fairly easy, due to the fact, as I discovered, that the previous owner never attached the fan to the ceiling. It was just sitting over the hole. Because of this, I had to screw a 2x4 brace between the rafters, as I wanted to use the existing opening and did not want to reposition the fan. The fan does come with tabs to bend out which would normally set the fan flush with a 1/2" ceiling, unfortunately someone had put an extra layer of sheetrock on the ceiling and I could not use them. You can see the tab and my solution in the picture attached. Once I had the fan flush and level with the ceiling, I could attach the 2x4 between the rafters and attach the fan housing to it. The fan has several attachments and is designed for old work, new work, and as in my case, remodel work. Apart from working in the confined space installation was simple. Once installed the light kit and vent cover was attached with a single nut. The light kit has two holes which gives additional flexibility to the placement and orientation of the finished look. The wiring provides the ability to switch the fan and light independent of each other, or just tie the leads together to use one switch for both. (blue& black and whites together) We put a 10 watt LED (60W equivalent) and it gives a decent amount of light for a small 8'x5' bathroom. Using LED's you could always increase the bulb output if you need more light. The only downside I have with this unit, is common to most of this type. The outlet vent comes out the side and is designed, I guess, for a sidewall exhaust. You need either a 90 degree bend or enough room to insert a flex pipe if you are venting through a roof. It would be nice if there was a knock out to do so, much like a range hood has. Finally, the fan is whisper quiet. I walk by the bath and can only tell the fan is on because the light is on also. It's a nice product.

I wanted to a an exhaust fan to our laundry room in the basement so I selected this one. I am pleased with its quietness and power of pulling the air out. My wife air dries most of our clothes by hanging them up in the basement, so along with our dehumidifier and now this exhaust fan we should be able to balance out the air downstairs. I am happy with this unit.

For the money, this is a very good value. Like most others, I ordered this to replace a 13yr old light/vent fan. The installation went smooth. The top connection was not a issue since this was installed in a drop down ceiling, allowing plenty of room to work. What was nice about this unit is that each component [the fan motor and light] are separate, each with their own plug. After installing it I place a paper towel over the unit with it on and it held the towel on the unit showing a very sufficient draw of air. The bathroom is small and generates a LOT of humidity from showering with the old fan. Not anymore, this fan kept up with the steam and the mirror never even fogged up.
