Energy efficient solutions in traditional designs. A bath fan needn’t call attention to itself, especially when you don’t want it to overpower the design of your bath or powder room. More important, it shouldn’t call attention to itself on your electric bill. With energy efficiency for the high-traffic bathroom, the QT130E simply does its job quietly, in every sense of the word.

Install is a royal pain for remodeling
I assumed by now Broan would have figured out a method to easily install a fan for a remodeling project. It is clear after installing this fan that it is intended to be installed in new construction or by crawling up into the attic.
The mounting method is flanges that exceed the width of the opening, meaning that once you do put the fan through new hole you just cut in the ceiling, there is no way to mount it unless you buy an additional mounting kit or crawl up into the attic to secure it.
I was looking at panasonic based on the thousands of positive reviews for how quiet they are, but now I also see it is due to how easy they are to install. Sad that Menards choose to carry these. Great for someone who doesn't mind crawling around in an attic, but a very poor choice for anyone else.

bathroom ceiling to far from venting out and high attic.Is it ok to vent inside attic blowing around
Thank you for your question regarding the QT130E exhaust fan. It is always recommended to exhaust the fan outside via a roof or wall cap. Ducting into the attic will be moving the moist, warm, humid air from the bathroom into the attic and may damage the structure and insulation. For further assistance, please contact Technical Support at 1-800-637-1453.

Leaves mirrors foggy
Installed in a 9'5" x 11'5" bathroom with 8'3" ceiling hight. When I get out of the shower the mirror is all foggy and I can see moisture streaks on the walls. I installed it with the 6" to 4" reducer using about 10' of insulated flex line discharging the house using a 4" vent. I checked the outlet and good airflow seems to be exiting the building. Any Ideas on how I can get the moisture to an acceptable level?
Thank you for your question on the model QT130E exhaust fan. This fan will handle a bathroom up to approximately 120 square feet with an eight foot ceiling, when installed with six inch rigid duct work. When you reduce the duct work to four inch, you can run no more than eight feet straight of rigid duct work without losing CFM. Any elbows in the duct work or the use of soft flexible duct work can cause more loss of CFM. Reinstalling with six inch rigid duct work should show you a big difference in performance.

I have a QT 130 installed and working. I now would like to add the light, but don't want to tear our the fan. Is a light kit available to add on?.
Thank you for your question on the model QT130E. Unfortunately, there isn't a way to add a light to this model. You would need to completely remove this model from the ceiling and install a model that better meets your needs. The QT130LE would be a fan with fluorescent light. You can view this on the Broan website.

Bathroom has a vaulted ceiling, so the fan needs to be wall mounted. Can the QT130E be mounted in the wall?
Thank you for your questions on the QT130E ventilation fan. This model is for ceiling installations only, and can be mounted in a vaulted ceiling up to a 12 / 12 pitch. It cannot be mounted in a wall. If you have further questions, please contact our Technical Support Department directly at 800-637-1453.
