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
you buy based on the size of the room. go to their web site they will help you select what size. One person on here wanted to upsize his unit to boost shower steam exhaust which sounded like a good idea

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
mine is a 50 cfm and it is really quiet. So quiet that I need to add a visual indicator just to tell if the fan is on. I have a 4 inch vent pipe connection but believe that you could reduce it down and increase the noise a bit and still be OK

If i place the exhaust fan directley in shower area, can i use the 50 cfm, even if the bathroom is very large, will it Matter,,

Asked by: Snake
good idea about adding the extra cfm. The unit is primarily plastic and looks like it could handle that situation.

WhisperCeiling 50 CFM Ceiling Exhaust Bath Fan, ENERGY STAR* is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 26.

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 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 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.

Installation manual is a bit confusing. The key difference between Installation I and II seems to be whether you install the bottom of the fan just above or just below the ceiling plaster board (look at the diagrams). Also the brackets seem hard to get into the guide, but pop out easily. For installation I (above ceiling), pick the right brackets (look carefully at picture), put them together, slide into the guide.

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!
