Energy Star 50 CFM Bath Fan Only with 0.5 Sones and Snap-In Installation From the BFQ Series
Replaced builder grade 50CFM in small room powder room. Had to enlarge the original ceiling opening. Was a little worried with the body being plastic, install went fine. Works great and is less noisier than the builder grade. I expected it to be more quiet, but since I retrofitted this fan, I used the 3" duct I had in place. I reduced from 4", so this is likely the culprit. Once I get the chance I will replace the 3" duct with 4" and that will make things quieter. Happy with my purchase and looks much better than the builder grade unit.

Great Fan,Great Price & Super Quiet
This fan is so quiet that after I installed it and flipped the switch I thought I did something wrong, because I did not hear it. I pulled the cover and saw it was indeed running and working perfectly. It is not super powerful, at 50 cfm, but works great in my application. I love it. I usually don't write reviews, but felt compelled to write this. Also, it arrived way quicker than expected.

great value, quiet
Very nice so far. Arrived virtually overnight despite saying it wasn't in stock. A bargain for a 4" ducted 50 cfm fan. Only gripe is that for existing construction, the clip-in bracket design is cumbersome -- had to cut the opening larger than i wanted and patch a bit. This design is really for new construction.

This fan is an easy install. I installed some to replace some loud bathroom and laundry exhaust fans. Increased air movement from the original. When sitting under this fan you hear a low whisper. When you are in the bath or laundry room, you really have to listen to hear it running. Exceeded my expectations.

After having a fairly loud fan in my powder room, it is so nice to have a quiet one. So quiet in fact that I forget its on. I'm now in the habit of double checking that it got turned off.
It is a good price also.

Great value for money
This is the most quiet fan I have ever owned. I don't hear it when on. Does the job in my small bathroom.
Very satisfied with my purchase.

Fan was easy to install it comes with a bracket the unit snaps into for installation. Very quiet. I did have to adjust the fan blade after install as it rubed on the housing when I first turned it on, it was an easy fix but a pain!!!
