  • Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Moves a lot of air, quiet motor but some wind noise. The QT140E fan removes a lot of air and moisture from the shower and bathroom. But, because it moves 140 CFM, it makes more wind noise than my wife would like. This model is far better and quieter than the builder installed fan that made a lot of noise but did not remove much air or moisture. There are quieter fan models available, but they may only move 80 CFM or less. March 25, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet, adds good light and keeps moisture out of bathroom during shower.. Highly recommend, especially for small bathrooms because of the low noise level. Prior to installing this fan we had a constant mildew problem in our bathroom. Seven women/teenage girls taking non-stop hot shower's gave it a real workout. No more mildew. (They got their own house.) March 13, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Noise This product works pretty good. However, the motor is louder than I expected. March 12, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product. Great product. I would buy it again in a minute. Would recommend this to anyone that wants a very quiet and very effective fan. March 11, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall I am happy with the product The fan is quitter than the one I replaced. It does however have a noticeable squeal that I have not been able to stop. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great, easy to install and quiet. Have been using this now for over a year. Works great, very good airflow and exhaust of moist air from the master bath. Good product at a good price.. I would consider this a Best Value product. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by We've had another Broan model before. This model was a step up un what we wanted. We needed a more quieter model. That would exhuast more air faster. We got what we needed in this model. Thanks. We had another model. We needed to get a model that had more power. February 20, 2013
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Broan has great features The product is quiet and moves a lot of air. The only problem i find is it's hard to clean even with a vavuum cleaner. It would be better if you could remove the entire motor assembly as i could with my previous Broan bath fan. February 20, 2013

    1) If my roof cap has a built-in damper, do I need the flap in the Duct Connector?

    2) Assuming that I do need the flap, then more help in installing the flap would be nice. Here is where I am confused:

    Looking through the 6 inch round connector as it goes into the rectangular shape to attach to the fan, the top of the rectangle has a "foam strip" glued to it. If I insert the flap with its top in front of the foam, then the flap will be restricted from fully opening, but the flap will close completely (see picture "flap top in front ..."). If I insert the flap with its top behind the foam, then the flap won't close, but can open fully (see picture "flap top behind..."). Please let me know which is the correct installation.

    It seems to me that the "foam strip" should be positioned more towards the front, so that the top of the flap can be behind it, which would allow the flap to both fully open and close.

    There are no details given on this part of the installation. I feel that this is important information, because the tabs on the flap seem weak and will only tolerate so many attempts at installing it correctly. Also, I believe that I have the orientation of both parts correct, but it would be nice to have confirmation.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QT140E exhaust fan. If you have a damper on the outside roof or wall cap, you wouldn’t need to have a damper on the unit itself, but it would be helpful especially in the winter. When the damper duct assembly is installed on the unit housing the fan will blow the bottom of the damper open, out away from the fan. The bottom of the damper will have a bend in it and when closed will bend back towards the fan. If you need further assistance please contact our Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453.

    Answer: 
    The question is great and the photos are helpful. I am having the same issue and need some clarity.

    Unfortunately, I am not sure if the answer given by the manufacturer was foam in front or foam behind as you describe it. The bending answer they gave was confusing because I don't want a restriction but it would be nice to have a nice seal in the winter.

    Can you guys answer in the context that the question was asked? Flap top in front of the foam or flap top behind the foam???

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QT140E exhaust fan. If you have access from an attic or crawl space above, the best way is to place the QT140E face down on the attic side of the ceiling and trace around it. If you need to do this from the bathroom side, you will actually need to cut out more of the ceiling than would normally be needed and repair the ceiling after the installation is done.
