This product is not as advertised, and Home Depot has gone to great lengths to deceive buyers. The product specifications as of today still identify a 14 watt bulb. The product guide specifies an 11 watt bulb. When I picked up my order, the outside of the box said an 11 watt bulb is included. Since we were remodeling the only bathroom in the house, I left the product with the contractor for installation while we stayed elsewhere. I return to find that the now installed product shipped with a 9.5 watt bulb. Worse, the warning labels on the interior of the bulb housing now specify a 9.5 watt maximum! Even worse still, because the bulb is now so much smaller than intended, having been reduced from the original 14 watts, the bulb housing and warning label are plainly visible from the doorway where the light switch is located. The light is too dim and the text of the warning label stands out as soon as you enter the room. It will obviously take hours and a significant investment to uninstall this fan and reinstall a new one, as the drywall and vent were cut for this specific product. I don't think I'll buy from Home Depot again, although that's hard to do since they ran the actually competent local plumbing and electric store out of business. Panasonic isn't blameless in this either. Also the fan is louder than advertised.

    There are cheaper exhaust fans out there, but after researching the other recessed options, I went with this Panasonic because it offers more ventilation (80CFM as opposed to 70CFM from competitive products) and it's quieter than most at 1.0 sone. PROS: - VERY Quiet (won't mask loud bathroom activities) - Competitively priced with other recessed fans - High throughput CONS: - None yet The installation was only made difficult by the awkward maneuvering through my attic. If you have an attic with insulation, please wear a mask, long sleeves, and pants during installation. A couple of installation notes: - Follow the manufacturer directions (they are detailed and helpful) - Make sure there is 1/8" between the fan box and the back of the ceiling, otherwise you will get vibration from the fan. - I was replacing recessed lights with these fans and the holes required for the fan is slightly larger than the hole for the recessed light, so I had to remove some drywall to get them to fit. (I goofed and had to purchase some goof rings, see the pics) - When ducting the fan to a vent, use insulated ducting or insulate the ducting and don't try to exhaust 2 fans to the same vent. - There is a chart provided that will show you the CFM and sone output of the fan based on the length and diameter of the ducting you use. - Pair these with some timer switches like Enerlites in-wall timer switch

        My contractor installed one of these in our shower, and a second one in the WC, where he put a double switch so we can turn on the fan only or the dimmable light. PERFECT! Plenty of fan power to remove steam and odors. Sleek design and very functional.

        This is a great product after a month. The fan is extremely quite. The only complaint is the gap between the bulb and the recessed shroud. I would recommend this, and would buy it again.
