Questions & Answers

I want to replace an old Nutone 9x9.25 ceiling fan that does not operate well that has 3" ducting...

I want to replace an old Nutone 9x9.25 ceiling fan that does not operate well that has 3" ducting. I know I need to update ducting in attic from 3" to 4" for this fan but the external wall vent hole with flapper is only 3". Is that okay if I use 4" venting til it gets to the external hole? If so, what sort of adaptor do I need to downsize the 4" to 3"? I cannot seem to find one at HD online. Thanks!
Asked by: Figs
I don't see a problem doing that. You just need to find a 4" to 3" reducer. If you can't find one in the ducting section, try the stove pipe section. I know they make reducers for pellet stoves etc. Good luck, it's a great fan!!!

Can this be installed on a wall rather than a ceiling?
Asked by: Dave
The wall is between the bathroom and attic, so there is no space limit for the size of the housing, in remotely testing the unit, I believe the flow and pressure is sufficient to keep the damper open when running. Thanks for all the positive comments and suggestions.

Can this be installed from below and replace an existing fan.

Can this be installed from below and replace an existing fan.
Asked by: flug
Yes. It may be a little tricky connecting the electrical leads and the vent hose while supporting the new fan below the ceiling opening, but it can be done.

Panasonic WhisperCeiling 110 CFM Ceiling Exhaust Bath Fan, ENERGY STAR*, White is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 488.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the fan to get ...you don't even know it's on and it is extremely quiet Finally on the tail end of our basement bathroom renovation and after researching we went with this Panasonic over Broan, Nutone, and all the other competitors. Prices again, all over the map however you will NOT overpay too much if you need the fan immediately from HomeDepot. Make sure you size your fan properly with a minimum of 8 changes of air per hour but again more is always better since you really want to void destructive moisture laden humidity from your bath area. What especially makes this Panasonic a good value is the fact it also has a built-in vent flapper and when installed with another exterior vent with it's own flapper it minimizes loss of hear during cold months. 3-year warranty from Panasonic and when charged to your CC will double the warranty giving you peace of mind on your purchase. Don't cheap out on this item since you really don't want to replace a bathroom exhaust fan especially you plan on having a finished ceiling (versus a dropped tile ceiling).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best! About a year ago, I had my master bathroom completely remodeled. The contractor who performed the work installed a Panasonic Whisper Ceiling fan as part of the job. I asked him why he chose the Panasonic fan and he told me that it was the best fan available. I was amazed how well the fan performed. It is very quiet and circulates more air than any other ceiling fan I have used. Needless to say, I was very impressed. I recently sold my old home and moved into something out in the country. As soon as we settled into our new place, I ordered up a new Panasonic fan for the master bathroom. The installation took less that an hour. This fan works great! No more bathroom fog when I take a hot shower. It runs so quiet that I sometimes neglect to turn it off. For me, this was money well spent. I am planning to upgrade all of the bathroom fans in the new house in the near future. Panasonic has a winner in this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A silent fan... In September 2016 I renovated my upstairs bath. I selected a new fan (not Panasonic) and was so disappointed with the sound level. After spending thousands on a full renovation the new bathroom fan was the single negative that really detracted from the project. The electrician that worked on my parents full home renovation had installed a Panasonic bath fan. I initially did not think the fan was working when I took a shower my first morning at their new home. I commented to my dad at breakfast. He replied, " Yes we forget to turn it off all day... it's so quiet." When I started my master bath renovation this winter, I called my dad for a model number. While it was a bit of a spend relative to the big box home improvement brands, the money was well worth it. The quality of engineering is evident when you open the box. It is soooooo incredibly quiet and the model I purchased is UL approved for use in my walk in rain shower. I could not be happier with the purchase. I love taking time to write a review for truly great products and service. Sincerely, Paul

What a difference going from a 3 sone NuTone unit to his whisper quiet unit. It was a bit difficult to install as a retrofit in my basement bathroom, but the extra work was well worth it. I had a NuTone 70 CFM which is 3 sones. It would be fine if it was in a top floor bathroom, but in a basement bathroom it sounded like a plane taking off. To install it as a retrofit, I had to cut a wider opening which was simple with a drywall saw. Then I bolted a 2x4 to the nearby joist to get 10.5" between joists. Next I removed the duct/power section from the unit and fit that up in the ceiling and then connected the duct and wiring. With that in place, I then slid the rest of the unit up into place and used 2" long screws to bolt it to the wood. Reconnected the quick disconnect power to the fan and reinstalled the ground screw. Finally turned the power back on and everything worked. So quiet now. Took about 3 hours including a trip to Home Depot to get a conduit connector for where the wiring enters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quieter than expected! Purchased to replace standard 8x8 bathroom exhaust fan. Definitely will be doing the other bath very soon. Had to enlarge existing hole by 2.25" on 2 sides. Separated the metal exhaust / electrical housing unit from black box. Placed metal piece in new hole first, then slid in the box. YOU DEFINITELY NEED AN EXTRA SET OF HANDS (one in the attic, one to hold fan in place)....IT WILL HELP!!! Once back in the attic, I clipped both pieces back together and re-installed ground screw from the bathroom side. (THERE WAS A LOT OF UP AND DOWN THE LADDER TODAY...LOL). Secured brackets & extensions to studs / 2x4's. Wired up the electrical box, installed (dryer) exhaust tubing, double checked everything then flipped the breaker then the switch. PERFECT....Much quieter than your standard exhaust fan. Bathroom is 8'x5' (40 sq ft) and it's recommended for rooms up to 110 sq ft (roughly 10.5 x 10.5). The bathroom never got steamy even with a very hot shower. Although the bathroom door was closed & steam was still on the mirror after the shower, it gone within 2-4 minutes. A MUST PURCHASE TO REPLACE STANDARD EXHAUST BOX FANS.

I am a retired builder and I installed this exhaust fan in our recently build home. I was very impressed with the quality and quiet operation. No comparison the the cheaper noisy units.

This thing really clears the air, and in a good way. I had a builder grade original before this, and I had to open the front door to make the air breathable. Now I just run the fan for maybe an additional 5 minutes and no one's the wiser. I actually put the same fan in a basement bathroom to remove moisture from the shower, and that works swimmingly. I have a timer switch on both fan installations, opting for a 45 minute run in the basement, because it includes shower time. For the powder room, I set it at 10 minutes at the beginning of each "session," and the air is completely clear well before the 10 minutes is up. I first saw Panasonic fans on one of the earlier Mike Holmes series, and I am so glad I latched on to them as a trusted vendor. Keep in mind you need a 6 inch vent for the 150 CFM models, but this one is 110 CFM, and I have it hooked to both a 4 in duct (basement) and even a 3 in duct (powder room). VERY happy with this fan/brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A big fan of this product (pun intended) Remodel of the master bathroom. Complete tear out so I had full access to framing. Bought this unit because it had the CFM required for the bathroom size and was 0.3 sones. Our second bathroom still has a 1.7 sone exhaust fan which vibrates the walls and can be heard down the hall. The 0.3 sone unit is a pleasant improvement and we plan to put another one in the second bathroom. I completed a solo install, which required some 'accessories'. Make sure you have a second person to hold the unit in place during the install. There is no way to hold it up, keep it level and square and screw it in by yourself. I ended up using 2 clamps and a 2x4 (the 'accessories') to span the ceiling joist to support the unit and hold it level and square while I screwed it into the ceiling rafters. Finished it off by wiring it in with an LED can light (also from HD) and ran the extendable aluminum ducting to the roof (again from HD).
