The fan is quiet, however I believe it moves much less air than the fan this replaced (also 70 CFM). When using the shower, I get condensation/fog on my mirror with this new fan that I didn’t get with the one it replaced. I’m assuming this is because it isn’t pulling as much air as my old fan.

FYI, this exhaust fan is not quiet. 3 Sones is loud. Look for a fan that is 1.0 Sones or less.

Thank you for your comments on the 769RL ventilation fan with light. This model is rated at 70 cfm's with 3.0 sones. This would be considered a moderate sone rating. We do offer fan and light units that offer exhaust fans with a lower sone rating, if that is what you are looking for. Please give us a call and we will go over your options with you at 888-336-6151.
    Excellent product very silent and with good light.

    I had this installed to replace an existing Nutone over 40 yrs old. Unfortunately, this newer model clears the steam as little as the old one if not less. After a normal shower it still takes 15 min to clear the mirror. Also, in the first 2 weeks it was semi quiet but is getting louder as time goes one. I just can't recommend this one. :(

      It looks nice, the light is bright enough and it works. Everything you want in an exhaust fan.

      Fine for a small bathroom, but quite noisy compared to some of the competition. Don't expect to install it from below as a replacement unless you already have the same fan in place - getting the old brackets or nails loose and then adding new ones is a massive chore! I had to cut out a square of drywall about 20" square in order to allow removal of the old fan and placement of this product. If you have the same fan already in place, you can buy just the fan/motor combination and swap out the old one for the new one - just be sure the old one is the same maker and size.
