  • 510 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Broan 510 fan I installed this in my garage/man cave for winter time smoking cigars/cigarettes with friends, in an outside wall. This fan is way better than my last one, it sucks the smoke right out of the garage. There is so much CFM that we hear the garage door suck in when we turn it on. I put a rotary dial switch on it so that I can adjust the fan speed so that it doesn't suck out all the heat in the garage as well. Works great, had to modify it a little to be just a one sided fan in lieu of the thru wall fan. Would recommend this model to anyone wanting to move a lot of air, either from one room to another or as an exhaust to the outside for fumes or smoke. Outside wall cap would have to be purchased separately.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great the variable speed is awesome. overpowered if anything. you can turn on full blast or at a slower quieter speed. fully removes all hot moist air from laundry/bath room. con-we have it installed between 2 bathrooms and you can see from one room to the other, needs some kind of screen to stop see through the vents are a little cheap but as long as they aren't messed with should be fine FYI I installed it in a 12" wall with some homemade venting. I just took a sheet of sheet metal and cut it to make a box within the wall and then popped in the fan. took about an hour.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not very impressed We are going on our 3rd motor for this unit. We use it to move air from our livingroom where the woodstove is and the rest of the house.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Room-To-Room Utility Ventilator I have used this product for almost seven years. When it failed after heavy use, I didn't think twice about where to go for a replacement or what product to purchase. This is an excellent product. The replacement is operating just as smoothly as the original and does a great job. It is a smart solution to keeping the home comfortable when using alternate heating systems, by circulating the warmer air to another section of the home at a very low cost. Since combining a pellet stove to generate heat and this ventilator to move the air, I have reduced home heating costs by two thirds. Recommend it to everyone.

  • My wall is too thick for this fan. 512

    I found out after I bought the fan and fully installed it that my wall is a little too thick for the fan. I can't get the other grill on and I have about an inch of open space around the fan (it's blowing into the wall) Is there a way to get around this without buying a different fan? Thanks, Dan
    Asked by: Dan
    "Use a different unit? " - that doesn't seem too helpful. They don't even suggest another, applicable Broan product? (smh) Dan, I would suggest to measure the ducting and try to find suitable extension with the same diameter at your local parts house. If you cannot find a suitable size, you may need to fabricate one from an oversized piece of ducting with a pair of tin snips and tek-screws. Keep in mind, that you may need to make the extension on both sides to create a good mate between the two halves. I am also struggling to find a through wall fan to fit a 7.5" wall in my shop. You would think Broan would offer an extension duct that they could overcharge us for. have a nice day!

    can I add 4" ductwork to vent this fan outside

    I am looking for a sidewall vent fan for a log cabin. The fan needs to be a wall mount fan but have 4" piping so that it can be run up the wall. I am a hvac contractor so I understand static pressure.
    Asked by: Mark
    Thank you for your question regarding the 510 exhaust fan. This unit cannot be connected to 4 inch duct to be vented outside. If you are looking for a wall mounted exhaust fan that can be ducted with 4 inch duct, we would recommend the LP80. If you need further assistance, please call Technical Support at 1-800-637-1453.

    can see trhough need some kind of screen

    i installed this fan between 2 bathrooms/ laundry rom and the problem is that we can see from one bathroom to the other. I put in a aluminum grease screen from one of your kitchen vents but we can still see through. do you sell a non see through screen for model 510 I asked this question before but under the wrong model the 509s so it wasn't answered correctly
    Asked by: molsonman
    Thank you for your question on the model 510 through the wall fan. The aluminum grease screen (part number 97010271) would be the only filter available for this unit.

    The installation manual indicates that both the 510 and the 511 are the same size.

    Even though the 510 has a 10" fan and the 511 has an 8" fan. Is that correct? In one of your previous answers, you stated that the two are different sizes, which is at odds with the installation manual. Thanks for the clarification.
    Asked by: Curious consumer
    Thank you for your question on the models 510 and 511 room to room fans. The 510 and 511 use the same unit housing and require the same size wall cutout. The description of eight inch and ten inch has to do with the actual diameter of the fan blade on each fan.

    Can this fan be mounted vertically such that the fan blades are parallel to the ground?

    I have a sort of shelf in a stairwell and I'd like to mount this fan in that shelf to help move air in the stairwell.

    Thank you for your question on the Broan 510. The model 510 cannot be mounted vertically. If you have further questions please contact our Technical Support directly at 800-637-1453.
