I prefer to use a regular incandescent light bulb. max watts?
We have our fan and light separated to different outlets so that we can dim the lights on a dimmer, and then wired the fan portion to a spring wound timer. I want to use incandescent bulbs for this. 1) CAN I? and 2) what is the maximum wattage for the bulb?
Betsy, I have same issue and will probably use a lower wattage with warmer color GU24 bulb (2700K ~ incandescent) as I have a larger light already in the bathroom. I might even just just one bulb. I plan on using the vent light for winding down at night or to contrast the bright 4100K light I already have. There are GU24 to Edison Base adapters but then you'd have to find a specialty bulb short enough...not worth the trouble.
Although they recommend incandescent C7, I use LED C7 for other bathroom night lights and they don't get hot and will last a lot longer! Note, all CFLs have poor reliability and take time to brighten.

Loud exhaust fan
Put in this new fan to replace old loud one and this one is louder
Any suggestions why
If you used the 6" exhaust duct, it should operate at 1.5 Sones. If you used the reducer from 6" to 4" the Sones level will be higher and the CFM slightly lower. Unless there is a problem with the fan turning freely, it should be fairly quiet. It also depends on the specs of the fan you replaced.

Lunaura Nightlight not working!
After numerous hours of troubleshooting, replacing switches, climbing in the attic reconnecting wires, swapping wires to different switches, paired light and fan working on both switches, while the LED nightlight is zilch... at this point I've come to the conclusion that you guys sold me a faulty unit. I would greatly appreciate it if you guys came out yourselves and installed the new unit! I've wasted enough of my time.
Apologies Nutone staff. The manual is very non descriptive and I somehow missed the paper thin cord which attaches to the LED box....My son was like daddy what's that weird strip for.
