    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product For A Great Price Went to my local hardware store and found this unit. Unit was easy to wire and mount. Like the ease of not having to use any tools to take the motor out or put it in. This unit replaced an older unit that was on its last leg. Night and day difference and a lot quieter.. January 16, 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by this product works great but its loud. the features are great it get the job done but its loud. Wish I could purchase another with a light in it and a quieter one , I wish I win so I can buy another. August 3, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Inexpensive and easy to replace busted vent fan Was very easy to remove old one and put in new one. Literally plug and play. Interesting buying the whole unit was cheaper than just buying the replacement motor which I would have preferred since I did not need to replace the box and grille. September 4, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great exhaust fan...easy to install...recommend highly. Very satisfied with this Broan exhaust fan....good quality and works great. April 1, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Needed to replace existing fan and this model fit perfectly, is more quiet and was reasonably priced. What more do you need? Easy to install, quiet and a great price. Good product. March 26, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by it is a good product a reliable and powerful fan at a reasonable price. Will buy the same product in future. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by great price, clever design Great fan, maybe, if there is a deluxe model, it could be quieter, but its not too loud March 10, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by existing fan replacement We installed this replacement fan in 3/4 bath. The fan is strong and clears shower dampness very efficiently. But it is loud. If the instructions for replacing the fan with a plug were clearer, I would have been able to replace the fan myself rather than hiring someone. Since the existing fan plugged into the ceiling, it was very easy to replace; no wiring or going into crawl space was required. The instructions didn't say how to remove the existing fan (same type). Since we were replacing an existing fan of the same type, I wish I could have purchased this model without the housing; I just had to throw out the brand new housing; a waste of money and materials. Overall I would recommend this fan for a replacement; this one fit into our existing fixture perfectly. If you are installing a new one without an existing opening, then I would suggest you look for a model which is quieter. Our old one lasted 22 years; I assume this model will be as reliable.

    Is there an upgrade kit that fits this box? I am hoping to replace with a quieter unit without replacing the housing.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on exhaust fans. The only parts available for your unit housing would be the original replacement parts. If you need a quieter unit, you would need to completely remove the current unit and replace it with another model. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    4" flex duct maximum run

    This 50cfm fan is approx. 37' from the exterior wall. We've run a 4" Class 1 insulated flex duct horizontally through the basement floor joists with a minimum of turns. There are no shorter runs available to us. Will this fan still exhaust properly ?

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 670 exhaust fan. All of our exhaust fans are rated with rigid duct work and we have no ratings with flexible duct work. Using four inch rigid duct work with the 670 would allow you to run a distance of 54 feet straight, reducing that distance by four feet for every elbow. Flexible duct work will reduce the distance you can run, but 37 feet may be feasible. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.
