AK80 fan installI'm installing this as new construction for the basement bath. Haven't completed the install because I don't have drywall up yet, but did connect to power and everything worked and was fairly quiet. The only minor con.... is the check valve on the fan itself. There is a decent-sized gap between the flap and the wall of the duct, which allows a good bit of cold air (wintertime) back thru the duct and into the bathroom.

Quiet Exhaust FanThis particular model was highly rated by Consumer Reports magazine so we purchased it for our bathroom (which never had an exhaust fan).
It is very quiet - so quiet its easy to accidentally leave it on, but this is preferable to one which sounds like a thrashing machine. One could use a timer switch with it to solve this problem.
We followed size guidelines and purchased the 80 cubic foot per min model for a bathroom which is 8' x 5' with and additional 3' x 6' tub/shower alcove. The fan will clear steam from the mirror in about 2-3 minutes, but I wish I had purchased the next larger size (100 cfpm) which might prevent any steam build-up in the first place in our size bathroom.
Nice fan. Will consider this brand and retailer when I purchase a kitchen exhaust fan next year.
Last year we purchased a lovely Kohler faucet from Faucet Direct. Faucet Direct offers excellent customer service via phone to supplement their comprehensive website.
