I did my usual research and decided on this one for CFM and noise reasons. But you never really know until something is in hand, how it will REALLY be. This unit exceeds my expectations and I will buy the exact unit again for my other bathroom when that time comes. The family is very happy, no mirror fog at all, almost silent, and a crisp clean light where there was previously only a noisy useless fan.
Plugged it in upon arrival - I didn't hear the motor, but I did hear the WHOOSH of 150 CFM of air! Incandescent 4 watt nite light provides perfect light at 2am. (The nite light is not motion sensing.) The two 26 watt CFl bulbs produce so much light, that I removed one CFL bulb, and I am still happy with it! I needed to cut holes in the sheetrock for the fan installation and the additional electrical wiring for the lights. I installed a (separate) 7-button timer switch for the fan, and love the ability to select one of 6 timers, from 1 minute to 60 minutes. A timer will help you to avoid venting all of your cool air-conditioned bathroom air into your hot attic. You will need to install 6-inch diameter exhaust duct and clamps. (I used 6" dia. bendable metal duct. and it was a challenge to route it in my attic.) A 3-in-1 light switch was used for the nite light, CFL light, and a separate bathroom light. This was one of the "more ambitious" home improvement projects that I...
So far so good. Extremely quite, nice light. Replaced generic fan that was loud and did not move the air. Before fan would not clear moisture off mirror. Panasonic does the job. I did have to get an electrician because went from 4 inch exhaust to 6 inch. Had to get painter to repair sheet rock ceiling and paint ceiling. It was worth it. This would be easy job during construction but difficult after or as a replacement.
