    Rated 5 out of 5 by Over all great I installed this fan for a office for their server room. It worked great having a way to adjust the fan speed and a easy install August 11, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Works great. The system works great. It's doing just what I wanted it to do. glad I bought it. February 3, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Not very impressed We are going on our 3rd motor for this unit. We use it to move air from our livingroom where the woodstove is and the rest of the house. January 5, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by works great the variable speed is awesome. overpowered if anything. you can turn on full blast or at a slower quieter speed. fully removes all hot moist air from laundry/bath room. con-we have it installed between 2 bathrooms and you can see from one room to the other, needs some kind of screen to stop see through the vents are a little cheap but as long as they aren't messed with should be fine FYI I installed it in a 12" wall with some homemade venting. I just took a sheet of sheet metal and cut it to make a box within the wall and then popped in the fan. took about an hour. January 18, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by THIS PRODUCT DOES AN EXCELLENT JOB OF MOVING AIR I USE THIS FAN TO MOVE WARM AIR FROM MY DEN WHICH IS HEATED BY A GAS LOG STOVE,TO THE OTHER ROOMS OF MY HOUSE. IT DOES AN EXCELLENT JOB AND IS VERY QUIET. THE DESIGN LOOKS NICE AND IS VERY EASY TO CLEAN AS NEEDED. February 21, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Broan 511 (Fans): Exhaust Fan Utility We have been pleased with the fans. The rooms seem cooler, and, although we can hear the fans when they are operating, the noise is not offensive. October 15, 2010
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product Moves a great volume of air but is noisy at high speed January 30, 2010

    I need a fan like this one to be used outdoors to ventilate an outdoor kitchen that is located in an alcove against a block wall. The fan will be located just above a 75,000 BTU outdoor grill where I don't have enough room for a hood. I like this unit but have two problems with using this particular model. 1) I doubt that this could withstand the heat. 2) it's on an oceanfront property in south Florida that loves to corrode anything that comes in contact with the salt air. Any suggestions?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 512. We would not recommend using this unit in an outdoor application. We do not offer a ventilation fan for outdoor use. We would only have our outdoor range hood EPD61 series. This can be seen on the Broan website. For further questions, please contact our Technical Support at 800-637-1453. We would be happy to try to help you more.

    I am looking for a sidewall vent fan for a log cabin. The fan needs to be a wall mount fan but have 4" piping so that it can be run up the wall. I am a hvac contractor so I understand static pressure.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question regarding the 510 exhaust fan. This unit cannot be connected to 4 inch duct to be vented outside. If you are looking for a wall mounted exhaust fan that can be ducted with 4 inch duct, we would recommend the LP80. If you need further assistance, please call Technical Support at 1-800-637-1453.

    I have a wine cellar where the through the wall cooling unit is dumping the warm air into a living space. I would like to dump some of that warm air into an unfinished space. The cooling unit is not on 100% of the time so the fan would not need to be on 100% of the time.

    Wall Width Expansion

    I live in an older building with a wall thickness of 7 inches. Given the max width of this product (which I have already purchased) being 5 1/2 inches, can an expander be purchased to make this fan suitable for my installation? If not, can you recommend an alternative product?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 510 room to room fan. There is no expander that can be installed with the 510 and we would not have a room to room fan that would work in a seven inch thick wall.
