Questions & Answers

A contractor installed this fan instead of the old Newton fan in the small bathroom 4ft x 8 ft. The mirror is getting mist. Any suggestions?

The contractor initially installed 80 CFM Panasonic fan to vent the 4ft x 8ft bathroom with shower replacing old fan. We were getting mist on the mirror quickly after starting the shower. Then the contractor replaced it with 290 CFM Panasonic fan. We are still getting mist on the mirror. What can be the reason for my mirror getting mist when 290 CFM is running in 4ft x 8 ft bathroom? Is there a way to fix the problem? The fan is vented outside the attic. My old fan was noisy, but never allowed mist to be on the mirror.

what does CFM stand for?

Asked by: bones
Cubic Feet per Minute - it's a measure of how much air the fan can move/circulate, so you can compare different models for varying room sizes.

What are the implications of using this fan with a 6" to 4" duct?

Asked by: Tony

Description says 6" duct adapter... does this mean the vent is already 6", or that it's the standard 4" with an OPTIONAL adapter? Thanks

Asked by: Michael
it's 6" standard

WhisperCeiling 290 CFM Ceiling Exhaust Bath Fan, ENERGY STAR* is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star Review Rating provided by a verified purchaser

Rated 5 out of 5 by from People kept saying they had issues putting this in place in an existing ceiling, not a new build.... People kept saying they had issues putting this in place in an existing ceiling, not a new build. It appears these people having issues were trying to install from inside the bathroom, not from the attic, they complained the unit would not fit through the hole. If you look at the directions and build the frame for the unit and install from the attic as shown, the install is easy and takes less than an hour. The fan is not as loud as the junk builder grade 80 cfm fan I removed, but not as whisper quite as people seem to believe, but I dont have an issue with it at all. Bottom line, take the hottest and longest shower you want with all the doors closed and your mirrors will be completely free of fog. Awesome product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We replaced and old 9x9 nutone with this fan (12x12).... We replaced and old 9x9 nutone with this fan (12x12). It sounds right on at 2 sones if I had to guess. It pulls a great amount of air and works really well with 9 foot ceilings to clear the air in a hurry. Exactly what our 1930s single bath 3 bedroom home needed. Brackets could be better.

Easy installation, reasonably priced and quieter than most lower cfm fans. You can actually feel the air being pulled towards the fan unlike most bathroom exhaust fans I've worked with in the past.
