    BROAN ULTRA GREEN™ Series Fans deliver everything you wished for in a bath fan – premium ventilation to help reduce airborne pollutants, extremely quiet operation, energy efficiency, consistent power and most impressively, the fastest, easiest, most universal installation available. These fans are ideal for both spot ventilation in humid bathrooms, as well as continuous ventilation to meet various building codes and Green Building standards around the United States.

    • 80 CFM reduces humidity to quickly eliminate fogged mirrors and manage moisture in bathrooms up to 75 square feet, so your vision will always be clear and your surroundings will always be comfortable
    • ULTRASilent™ with QStream™ Sound Technology results in operation at less than 0.3 Sones – the quietest sound rating attainable -- for an environment that is so quiet, you’ll likely forget the fan is on
    • ULTRALucent™ Lighting Technology provides 36 watt lights (two 18-watt bulbs included) delivering the brightness (measured in lumens) of models previously requiring 60 watts of CFL output – You get the best of both worlds; clear, even lighting with no hot spots and smaller energy bills
    • ULTRAQuick™ Installation Technology uses an exclusive telescoping mounting frame with pre-installed screws, snap-in housing, snap-in blower and an inside-out mounting duct connector that are the fastest, easiest, most universal installation
    • Retrofit installations can be done entirely from the room-side – no attic access required. This means a faster, easier installation so you can move on to something else
    • Unique telescoping mounting frame can be placed and fastened through drywall hole because it expands from 14” to 24” and fits any type of joist, I-Joist or truss construction for a “no guesswork” installation to make the work fast and easy
    • Snap-in housing and blower further simplify installation since you can hear – and feel – when they are properly seated. Easy-to-position carriage allows housing location adjustment between joists so you can control the correct ceiling placement
    • ULTRASmart™ DC Motor & Control Technology provides energy efficiency almost 10 times greater than ENERGY STAR® requirements and maintains rated power (CFM) in nearly every installation. You have confidence you’re getting the expected performance and won’t even notice the fan usage on your utility bill
    • UL Listed for use over tubs and showers with a GFCI circuit; so you can capture the steam before it spreads throughout the room by locating your fan exactly where you need it the most
    • Compatible with Radiation Damper RDFU which helps prevent flame and heat from spreading to other areas in multi-level buildings. In some cases an accessory wire jumper kit is required. This kit (model RDJUMPU) provides the additional lighting and sensing wire length necessary to bypass the damper
    • Can be used to comply with ASHRAE 62.2 and CALGreen

  • XB80L is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product The fan works well. It is quiet and efficient. The only problem I have noticed so far is when you pull down and remove the grille, The grille springs are so short that it is very difficult to get the springs back into the brackets. Very poor design.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and quiet This fan is nice and quiet, easy to install. The only problem i have is with the back flow flap make noise when it is windy outside, even with rain cap with damper.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Everything was going great until... I can't figure out how to get the grille to sit flat against the ceiling on its own. It will if I push slightly upward against the grille. The mounting frame and blower assembly are mounted correctly and securely. The springs are engaged properly. It's almost as if the grille is too heavy for the springs. Now I need to figure out how to make this work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install, translucent lighting is great, very economical to operate. The light was very easy to install. The translucent lens for light is great. The only negative is the noise level. It is not as quiet as advertised. There is considerable turbulence. Made all the adjustments that are possible but still not as quiet as I thought it should be. Replacement of damaged part was done easily and quickly. This is a very good bath light. I would purchase it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Broan XB110L This product works great. I really liked the new bracket that does not require attic access. The six inch duct requirement would not work for my application so I had to buy a four inch reducer. The fan is so quiet we had to install a timer because we forget to shut it off.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Fan - but some cheaply made parts fan noise - quiet Good lighting For the price paid, the 3 rocker switch should have been included. installation - a little difficult for a remodel. Baffle plate that prevents indoor air from escaping - cheap plastic pins that connect plate to duct. One broke as soon as I pushed into the connector, Very poor quality on this part.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good, but had a little trouble installing I bought this one to install in a ceiling for which I had no attic access. (It's hard to believe there aren't more fans available for access-only-from-below installation, but there are very few.) I had trouble installing the frame brace that comes with this fan, mainly because I had very little space to work in between the ceiling and the roof; there was another pipe there as well as lots of insulation I couldn't remove. I had to ignore their instructions that call for screwing in some screws from a direction OUTSIDE the frame, as it simply wasn't possible. But I got the brace in eventually, after which the containment box slipped in fairly easily. The next problem was hooking up the exhaust vent. Broan assumes you have an existing stretchable exhaust tube that you can pull out and attach their fitting to, but I didn't. Mine was rigid, not stretchable. So I spent a couple of hours jerry-rigging a setup, with lots of duct tape, that eventually worked. It would have been nice to have a more flexible system for attaching to the existing duct. The rest was straightforward, and the fan works fine. It's much quieter than our old fan. One thing I didn't expect: The light bulbs that come with it are very blue in color (very fluorescent-looking), and also have a special fitting, as they're not ordinary screw-in bulbs. Happily, there seem to be several models of these bulbs, including warmer-colored ones.

  • I have an old broan single speed fan with light installed about 30 years ago. My village inspector asked if it is UL listed.

    Attached please find a photo of the my Broan exhaust fan with light. Aren't ALL electrical products in the USA UL Listed? Thanks, Kevin
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Thank you for your question on ventilation fans. All fans should have been UL listed. Please get the model number off of the fan and contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    Is there a timer switch that works with the XB80L?

    I tried the Lutron Maestro timer and it caused the fan to run erratically.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    According to the instructions which come with the unit, you cannot use a timer.

    Can i use a 6in to 4in reducer for a retro fit with a 110 CFM fan

    Asked by: Anonymous
    I had the same problem and used the four inch reducer. The fan still works fine and is still very quiet. Even if you could use the six inch line it was impossible to find a vent that would accept it.

    night light / light

    Is the night light different from the main light? If so, should there be different switches?

    Regarding the electrical connection to the XB80L blower motor.

    I know what to do with the neutral and ground connection. What is the difference between the red and black connection on the blower motor?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Thank you for your question on the model XB80L exhaust fan. The motor in the XB80L is also used in other models where the red wire is used. The red motor wire is not used in the XB80L. You would connect the hot power wire from your wall fan switch to the black motor wire.
