Questions & Answers

How do you know what size to purchase when replacing an existing exhaust fan? My home was built in 72. Does that matter?

Asked by: MsKay
for a 50cmf fan what size should the vent pipe or hose be
Answered by: Bob

Sone, what is quietest high or low numbers? Is 50 CFM the smallest fan made for bathrooms?

Bathroom size, 5ft by 7ft, 8 ft ceiling. Can exhaust be reduced to 3 inches?
Asked by: Handyman
I general, the larger/CFM output fans are louder but not always. Panasonic Whisper Ceiling models start at 50 CFM with <.3 Sones; 80 CFM is .3; 110 is .8 while 150 is .6

return policy

can i return this to my local store if it doesn't fit
Asked by: rcm650
During our home renovation, I purchased dozens of items on Home Depot's website. I returned 4 or 5 of them directly back to my local Home Depot. The key is when you return something to a Home Depot store that you purchased online, you must have the order number with you - then it's an easy return to the store. Without the order number, it's a big hassle. If you sign on each time you order something from Home Depot on line, they keep your order history, so you can always get to your order number. You don't need any other paperwork when you return things to the store if you have the order number. Good luck.

WhisperCeiling 50 CFM Ceiling Exhaust Bath Fan, ENERGY STAR* is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 21.

Only change that was made for the install was a 4” to 3” adapter for the duct. Other than that, it went in with no issues. This is one of three Panasonic fans I purchased for bathroom remodels in various cfm capacities.

The installation took about 2 hours because some dry wall had to be cut & add (2) two by fours to make in fit. Panasonic makes excellent products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Truly A "Whisper" Unbelievably quiet exhaust fan. I installed it in a 1/2 bath right off my kitchen. In retrospect it may be too quiet to kind of mask other bathroom "noises" if you will? I will definitely be replacing my 20 year old exhaust fan in master bath with a larger CFM Panasonic Unit, but with a timer for I've caught myself forgetting to switch off this one due to its quietness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much quieter than old fan I purchased this fan to replace a very loud fan. I have had previous experiences with Panasonic fans so knew that it would be quieter than the existing one. This new fan although much much quieter than the old one feels like it pulls more air too. Installation required making an oversize hole because there was not any access from above. Also, I had to go down from the 4" diameter duct to the existing 3". Overall it took about a half day, including the drywall patch. Add another couple hours for finishing the drywall patch and then paint.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So I really hate to give a bad review on this fan. I love this fan, HOWEVER, please pay attention... So I really hate to give a bad review on this fan. I love this fan, HOWEVER, please pay attention to the CFM rating. I know it says for a 50 square feet or less room, we have two small bathrooms that are 40 square feet each. We listened to the fan info and got the 50 CFM, after using the bathroom once there was water streaming down the walls in strides. The water strips went all the way to the floor. We renovated both bathrooms, one after the other and we waited for the second bathroom ( we installed the same fan in both) to see if the first one was just a lemon. Same thing happens, we put our hand up to the fan and it does not pull anything out, and the steam is floating in the air while showering, you can see it not going to the fan. All of the steam is staying in our bathroom and have marks of water streaming down our newly painted walls. We had to waste money and buy two brand new fans 150 CFM, and have to pay our contractor to install those again. Please just be careful and just get the highest one possible, it will save you a lot in the long run, and save your bathroom from water streaks !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet This unit is very quiet - so much so that I forget to turn it off sometimes. I'm happy with it as I wanted a quiet fan. Would buy again.
