About This Product

EZ Soffit Vent - Patented design features help optimize airflow and allows for the completion of the duct system before the soffit panel installation. This high-performance vent system improves overall fan performance, minimizes total installed costs and reduces call backs (labor and parts due to poor airflow). For use with exhaust fans up to and including 110 CFM. Duct connection is 4 in. and the duct connection stub is 2.25 in. in length, allowing plenty of surface area for connecting, securing, and sealing. The EZ Soffit overall height is less than 6 in. and fits easily even in a 4/12 pitch roof overhang (with 2 in. x 6 in. fascia board), and soffits as narrow as 12 in. (10.5 in. fascia to building). The rotatable flush mounted termination grille mounts with a single fastener (included).

Highlights

  • Multi-patented soffit termination system is ideal for new residential construction and can also be used in select retrofit applications
  • First-to-market, HVI-certified soffit vent helps optimize airflow and reduces over all costs by allowing you to complete all the ducting before the soffit system installation
  • Soffit location eliminates water intrusion costs associated with roof and/or wall terminations
  • EZ vent body snap-fits easily into mounting bracket and can be rotated 180° to align with ducting and can be located anywhere within the overhang
  • Internal low-resistance back damper eliminates cold drafts and improves blower door test results
  • Callbacks caused by under-performing bathroom fans continue to plague the industry and the EZ soffit vent from Panasonic was designed to address this costly problem
  • No risk of compromised airflow due to excess duct being handled by the siding contractor, they simply cut a hole for the grille, re-install it, and direct airflow away from the building
  • EZ Soffit Vent is a versatile soffit termination system that enables your ventilation fan to deliver optimal airflow resulting in fewer customer call backs and provides for lower total installed cost
  • Product can also be used in other applications: clothes dryer exhaust (as shipped), fireplace combustion air intake, supply only exhaust and intake up to 120 CFM and balanced ventilation systems (HRV/ERV), exhaust and intake up to 120 CFM
  • EZ Soffit Vent fits flush to the surface and is able to be painted to fit in seamlessly with your home.
  • EZSV14 comes with a 5-year limited warranty, see full description in Additional Resources section

Q:Can I install this for the stove exhaust fan?
by|Mar 15, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  The EzSoffit is designed to pass a maximum of 110 CFM which is typically going to be far less than what a range hood will pass on any speed other than low. For this reason we suggest against using it in that application.

          Well made despite being plastic
          Disclosure: I'm usually NOT a plastic-made product user. Hence, this product only rated a four-star notation from me. However, I must acknowledge the fact that this product is made from a heavy plastic, including the internal flapper, the stud-mounting plate and the external screening bezel. The mounting plate can be rotated to orient the unit in any position. Easy to follow instructions are included.

          Easy install vent fan soffit vent
          A mounting flange makes it easy to attach to the fascia board or rafter. The split ring means the vent can actually be installed after the mounting bracket. Keep in mind the clearance needed between the soffit and the underside of the roof to fit this vent. The included damper stops drafts and cold air from getting into the vent pipe. A low profile grille is the only thing visible outside and it can rotate 360 degrees to aim the moist air away from the house wall. Really like the idea of not cutting a hole in the roof like other terminations require.

          This is a well made heavy duty vent kit that will last many years.
          The Panasonic EZSoffit Vent kit comes with everything you are going to need to install it for your house. The vent kit pieces are very sturdily made and it comes with all the hardware and screws you will need to install it. The hole you make in the soffit needs to be just a little over six inches and then the screws to mount it are installed to lock it down tightly. You attach your vent pipe and tape it down so it will stay put and then reinstall your soffit to finish up the job. Nothing on the vent will rust so it will last you for a very long time. The instructions are short and very well explained so the kit will not be a problem when you assemble it.

          Good product but a little oversized
          This product is well constructed. It is made of heavy plastic and should be very durable. The large mounting tab provides an easy way to attach the vent. The mounting ring allows the vent to be turned . The vent cover has a screw long enough to allow for some adjustment for the thickness of your soffits. The only reason I am giving this 3 stars is because the overall unit is quite large. You need a minimum of 10" horizontal & 6" vertical space to install the product.

          Flexible and durable exhaust fan soffit vent -- but not so EZ
          The first line of the installation instructions dashed my hopes: any retrofit installation (as I did) requires opening up the soffit and removing the soffit facia – not my idea of “EZ!” That’s a shame, because barring that blown expectation, this is a well-built, smartly-designed vent. The plastic construction felt and looked durable, with a built-in, gravity operated damper, and a split plastic ring on the mounting flange that allowed easy access to the nailing surface, and nearly 270 degree flexibility for orienting the incoming vent ductwork. There appeared to be screw head recesses within the aforementioned split ring that captured the duct exhaust vent itself, but access to screwheads (and the questionable wisdom of securing anything through the thin soffit facia) left me with more questions than answers. An exterior louvered vent provides a finished look to the installation. I presume this vent to be paintable but had not yet painted it. The wide spacing of the louvers on the vent cover is also of some concern since it lacks any internal screening, and some wasps have already shown interest in setting up housekeeping in that sheltered space. I would have also hoped for barbs or some sort of retainer to hold the flex-duct in place while making a more permanent bond to the termination system with mylar HVAC tape.

          Love it when a product is really EZ!
          You never know what you will encounter with older homes and ours presented an interesting challenge that the Panasonic EZSoffitVent - Soffit Vent - Soffit Termination System helped us solve. Our guest bathroom had an exhaust fan that was not ventilating properly and we discovered it was due to a duct that led no where in the attic. We were able to utilize this product with the proper hose and a simple cut into the siding to have immediate results. Installation was easy and screws were provided. The flap opens and closes with minimal effort and the cover plate fits flush to the siding. The reason for only 4 stars is the cover plate does not contains a screen to keep the FL bugs out. We will probably just do it on our own. Time will tell if there is any water intrusion, but we are set to work on the exterior of the house so at that time we will make sure everything is secure and properly sealed. No guarantee this will work on older homes as literature states it is for new construction, but it solved our problems and we would recommend.

          Well designed.
          I added a bathroom vent and saw this Panasonic EZSoffitVent - Soffit Vent - Soffit Termination System. The unit is very simple to install and the two-piece base is what sets this unit apart from others. I simply screwed the base to a rafter, pressed the unit into place and added the ring. The assembly swivels on the base for simple hose alignment. I have a ridge vent and this made my installation easier since I just set this unit close to it. For soffit installations, the instructions are well-illustrated and the design accommodates most soffits. At this price point, this unit makes your venting needs a breeze. Very impressed!

          Great for a New Vent Fan Install
          I'm using this Panasonic EZSoffitVent with a Panasonic vent fan that is being installed in the bathroom of a guesthouse currently being built. I have fairly advanced DIY skills but with so many things to do on this project I wanted to make things quick and easy while also looking professional. This vent is all plastic but that isn't an issue since once it is in place, nothing should disturb it. I like that the mounting bracket swivels to allow options for the install. This vent also has a built in baffle, which along with the baffle on the fan itself, there should be no reverse are flow. Last, the cover gives a nice clean look.

          Flimsy
          I am not going to use this vent. I think it is too weak to last long and too hard to install in this flimsy state. The separated locking ring is a clever idea to make it easy to install without having to get above the panel but this makes it very weak. When I tried to attach the vent hose, the ring would come loose. Even if I can get it installed, I would not trust it to remain mounted correctly.

          The idea is good
          Hey ladies and gentlemen here again with another review this time I'll be reviewing a soffit vent for bathroom fans, so the idea is simple and looking it over it seems like it'll work fine, I just personally have issues with venting bathroom fans in a soffit, it seems to me that the soffit venting itself will draw the moist wet air back into the attic and possibly cause mold maybe if you have a sealed soffit house this makes more sense or if you have soffit vents that are spaced far enough apart my house personally has the linear soffit venting so I don't think this is a good product for my situation
