Rated 5 out of 5 by Billdi This top-of-the line bathroom fan performs extremely well.
I've had inexpensive exhaust fans for way too long. Since I have a high-grade Viking exhaust hood for my kitchen that is very quiet, I finally decided to get a similar fan for my bathroom and purchased this model for its very low sone level. The noisy old fan did not move enough air and I had installed it incorrectly thirty-five years ago. It was driving me nuts!
I purchased this back in October of 2013, intending to install it before my daughter's family paid a visit. However, I didn't have time to do this due to other home improvements and the weather was too cold to work in my attic. I finally tackled the installation a couple of weeks ago when the weather turned nice. This was a challenge, mostly because the attic space was tight under the eaves, getting comfortable in this tight and very dusty space was impossible, and drilling a 4-1.2 " diameter hole through a 9" thick brick wall was difficult to make sure it was correctly aligned to have the duct go straight from the fan to the outside without bends. In addition, the existing drop ceiling made using tools was awkward since I am elderly and not in great shape. Thankfully the fan itself was a breeze to install. My electrical skills are poor so rerouting the circuits was another challenge, not because of the three function switch itself but because the existing circuits were ungrounded and ancient. I rerouted it to a newly installed GCFI outlet circuit in another tight space within a cabinet. The installation would have been a nightmare but your instructions were very clear. I actually didn't think it would work but your excellent instructions gave me the confidence to attempt this work. I dreaded the likelihood of having to go back up into the hot attic and fix any of the installation. I was thankful that everything worked so well.
After a long process of providing a new ground connection, I was delighted when everything was finally connected and I turned on the power. The fan is so smooth that the noise is like a soothing breeze; so quiet that I wasn't sure it was performing well. However, the amount of air it moves is at least three times what I had before - amazing!. It's great to take a hot shower and have absolutely no steamed windows and mirrors. My wife was frustrated at how long it took me but she was also delighted about the quality and esthetics of this fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WillyK Powerful fan but quiet
This fan does a great job keeping my bathroom mold free. It moves a lot of air but it is very quiet. I painted the bathroom ceiling when I installed the fan and in over 3 years there as been no mold growth or paint peeling as there was with the previous fan. Great fan at a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by slifox this has the features i was looking for
I've used Broan products since I built in 1974. these are my second replacements in those many years in 2 bath rooms and 4 boys. Features added was heat and both are even quitter than the old ones. ease of installation was helped by mu wiring was in place for the heat when it would be developed!

Rated 3 out of 5 by 98Dodge ok but electrical issues
wiring extremely sensitive to moisture infiltration. plugs need to be better sealed from moisture especially since it is in a BATHROOM!!!! I bought this product mainly since it said it was made in USA. Would buy another one solely for that reason but you need to do a little more engineering on it. And thanks for not going to China with it. Finally got it to work correctly after 2 months of reworking it.
