Rated 5 out of 5 by Tom02 XB80 Very Quiet
The contractor installed this XB80 Model without any issues. He used 6 inch solid metal duct. This unit is so quiet it can barely be heard. It looks nice, and works very well. Would highly recommend to others!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jimlaurie Great product
This product was so quiet that my husband dismantled after he installed since he didn't think it was working! It was working just fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gail05 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Marty19 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by danf415 Hard to believe
This review comes after a month in service.
This fan is so quiet that its hard to believe its on. Only in the dead of night, under perfect, quiet conditions can you hear the slight hum of the motor. It does work! Installing 6" duct and roof vent can be challenging but that is part of what makes a difference. I have the fan wired to the light switch so that it comes on any time the switch is operated.
I would have given 5 stars but I'm not satisfied with the way the fan cover attaches or fits. Is mine defective? It doesn't quite fit flush.
Would I buy another? I think I would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mach3 Best fan on the Market
My second Broan installation in my home. They are easily installed, are noticeably more efficient, and QUIET!! I will purchase at least two more in the future.
