Bathroom Fan, Light, Night-Light, 110 CFM, 0.9 Sones, Humidity Sensing
Awkward wiring instructions, WELL WORTH IT!
From a young boy until he left for college, our son frequently left their bathroom fan on from morning until I returned home at night to turn it off -- as if he wanted to heat the outdoors in winter and cool it in summer.
This fan is just the trick. In conjunction with any of the Braun x77Dx (many choices) switch, at one switch the light can be turned on/off, nightlight turned on/off, and the fan set on/off/auto. Auto causes the adjustable humidity sensor to automatically turn the fan on when humidity rises, and off a few (adjustable) minutes after getting back to normal. No more heating and cooling the outdoors!
The fan is acceptably quiet (much quieter than our old fan) and clears humidity from the bathroom very quickly.
To achieve that low-sone quietness requires 6" ductwork.
The Braun wiring diagram compared to the actual switch is a little unintuitive, but even a non-electrician like me got it working (after a couple tries) without too much difficulty. You will have to run an extra wire from the switch to the fan if you only have a light and fan now -- unless you simply skip using the nightlight (we seldom use it).

Just installed the fan - great features, used LED's, though nite light is a bit superfluous. LOVE the auto humidity control feature. Remember that it has a 6" exhaust (need an adapter if you have an existing 4" duct) Also remember to get the switch plate - other places had a week order time frameif you forgot to order with Vent. Direct..Best price and short delivery time with Vent. Direct.

Broan QTX110SL - fantastic
Perfect answer for a father with daughters.
Fan works exactly as advertised, and for half the price of their newer models.
Fan comes on automatically when shower is used. When you go outside you see the steam billowing out the roof cap, something the old 4" fan never did.
No more wet walls, steam on mirror, or yelling thru the door "Turn on the FAN".
Very quite too.

Quiet fan and humidity sensor works well
Fan was delivered in a couple of days with no damage. Installed this fan as a replacement for a noisey simple on/off unit. Works very well. Wife is happy.

If you want a really quiet exhaust fan, this is it. Plan on buying another for the next remodel.
