    To learn more about this revolutionary new product and how you can install it faster in new construction and retrofits, CLICK HERE.

    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
    • 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

  • Rated 4 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by This product does a good job of removing steam/moisture from the bathroom I would definitely recommend this product. It efficiently removes steam and moisture from the bathroom it is less noisy than my previous, less expensive fan, but not as quiet as I expected. There is a slight delay from turning on the fan to when it actually starts up, but doesn't affect its overall performance. I had someone install this for me and he didn't seem to have any difficulty with installation. Overall a good product for the money. February 8, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Not as easy to install as advertised I will bet if you had 16 inch center rafters it would be as easy as advertised. I have 20 inch center rafters and it was much easier to install in the attic. Also, I needed to purchase a 4-6 inch HVAC adapter to hook into existing 4 inch duct. Oh and by the way HVAC foil tape will not stick to the included 6 inch duct adapter. I had to use a bunch of the best duct tape from Lowes and a lot of it to ensure no leaks in the future.

    Poor Performance XB110

    Customer avatar
    by
    DavidR
    Brookfield, WI, USA
     on XB110
    I have 2 XB110s installed in 2 bathrooms. 6" ducting was used and the rise to the roof is less than four feet. I am consistently getting 50CFM from both, and one is significantly louder than the other. (though they are both loud) I had 3 different contractors re-duct (1st was 6" flexible, vented great, water went into duct insulation, 2nd was ridged 4", 3rd is ridged 6") and so far no one is able to properly install these fans. Any ideas how to get these fans to perform as rated?

    I just received the XB50L and I noticed there is backing material on the damper flap. The material overlaps the flap in several places and the overlap keeps the flap from turning freely as it drags against the damper cylinder.

    Is this how it is supposed to be?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the XB50L damper. What you have described is how the damper was designed. The overlap material will help provide more of an air tight seal and will also provide sound dampening for when the damper closes.

    My existing 678 has a positioning feature to compensate for different ceiling thicknesses.

    I plan to replace the 678 with a XB50L.

    What do I have to do with the XB50L mounting frame in order to compensate for different ceiling thicknesses? The instructions show installing the frame even with the ceiling joists without any mention of ceiling thickness.

    XB80 with a 4" duct

     on XB80
    You don't recommend using the XB110 and a reducer on 4" duct. Why is it okay to use the XB80 with a reducer on 4" duct?? Does the XB80 come with a reducer? Will there be any noise (rattles) ??

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the models XB80 and XB110 exhaust fans. The XB80 was designed for use with either six or four inch duct work. The XB110 was designed for use with six inch duct work only. Using four inch duct work on the XB110 can cause too much static pressure in the duct work making the unit louder than specified, making the motor work harder than it should and possibly causing the motor to wear out prematurely.
