    Q:Which size is best for 150 sq ft? Also, is this compatible w a twist timer?
    by|Apr 16, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  The general rule of thumb is 1 CFM per square foot of bathroom space. a 150 square foot bathroom would use a 150 CFM fan. The unit will work fine with a twist timer.

      Q:Is there a way to replace the fan/motor without replacing the whole housing unit? Based on the design, it seems that I would need to cut drywall anytime it needs replaced as the grill cover does not cover the electric box/fan exhaust. Thank you.
      by|Mar 21, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  If the unit is still a current model and you can find a replacement motor then the motor assembly can be removed form the fan and then replaced. A motor from a different model will not retro into a fan that it is not intended for as the bolt pattern and molex plug will be different.

          A very quiet well built and efficient exhaust fan
          First of all I liked the fan as my ratings indicate. However, as many have said the instructions weren't too helpful. I installed the fan myself and I have tackled a few projects myself with little or no experience. I was fortunate that I have a single story ranch home and being able to access the attic I was able to work above as well as below the ceiling. The old fan that I was replacing was a New tone and it was horribly installed. I'm glad that I was replacing it, because it wasn't very efficient. There have been comments about the slow startup of this fan. Since this fan has a D.C. motor and has a energy star rating I believe that this has something to do with using less electricity, I'm o.k. with it. This fan is supposedly a cooler running fan and can be covered with insulation. When I installed this fan I discovered that the old fan was larger and the hole in the ceiling was larger than the new fan. Now what? I decided to not use the Z-flex bracket and to create my own 1/4 inch plywood panel for mounting the fan. I had hoped that I was positioning the fan correctly but a attached photo shows what I ended up with. I was able to patch the ceiling to correct it in order that everything, including the hex screws and flat washers was hidden by the plastic grid. So now everything is running well at 110 cfm

            Easy to install, however the Installation Instructions are poorly written. Unit is extremely quiet. Different from older, more traditional AC fans, this unit starts up slowly (and quietly). I have another unit on order to install in another bathroom. If you plan to use a countdown timer to automatically turn off the fan after some time (e.g. 30 minutes), you must use the Panasonic countdown timer switch (FV-WCD01) with this unit. I found that the Lutron Maestro countdown timer switch is not compatible with this fan.

            I gave 3/5 rating after installation experience, not fan performance (hope, it will be good). I purchased this fan (Model # FV-0511VQ1), assuming retrofit installation (replacement) will be easier with flex-Z brackets and installed it today by myself. I found, that if ceiling sheet rock is attached not to joists, but to straps, there is no way you can use the bracket (at all). The bracket can be attached only flat with bottom of joist, no way to move it down to adjust to strap offset. Instruction suggests to press fan box flange to the ceiling and screw it to the bracket (trough sheet rock). The problem is that distance between top of the bracket rail and bottom of the ceiling is ~2 in (bracket rail thickness + strapping gap + sheet rock thickness). But the distance between flange and bottom of exhaust neck is ~1.1/4 in (see images). You can't squeeze into this gap the above bracket and sheet rock sandwich. And, as a work around, you can not attach flange directly to the bracket - there will be big gap between flange and sheet rock. So, I ended up by screwing the fan to pieces of wood straps on the other side of sheet rock.

              We purchased this product and had our contractor install it, replacing an old small and noisy fan. This fan lives up to its name. It is very quiet. The contractor installed it with ease. The vent cover is neutral and looks good in the ceiling.

              This is a great fan. You can set the speed depending on the size of the bathroom. Quiet fan, good quality.

              Easy installation, especially with the fan box detaches from the electrical box.
