    Rated 5 out of 5 by from super quiet I love them. So quiet and moves lots of air. Good thing they're semi automatic because sometime I forget to turn them off they are so quiet. I wish the the one with a heater was just as quiet and moved the same amount of air. My mom is cold all the time and have been looking for a model that is similar with a heater. But the heater models are all the older versions and louder.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from bathroom exhaustfans I hsve installed Nutone exhaust fans in all three of our bathroom. Theses fans each discharges 80 cfms with very low fan noise. highly reconmmended with installed alone. I'm totally delighted with theses units.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and quiet bath exhaust fan I installed 2 of the model QTXEN110, 110 CFM Ventilation Fans. One fan was a replacement in a 100 sq ft bathroom and the QTXEN110 is much quieter than its predecessor. The other was a new installation in a 50 sq ft bathroom. The fans were easy to install, but I had access above from the attic for both installations. The 6" duct helps keep this fan quieter than models using a 4" duct. The main features are simply the fan exchanges the air and clears the moisture, and it is quiet. I highly recommend Nutone fans, and for the size and features I need, this fan is excellent..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really sucks! It works very well. Easy to install, quiet and powerful. Bottom line, it sucks!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Highly recommend I was stunned by how quiet this fan is! And the six-inch duct keeps the bathroom mirror clear, too! Can't give 5 stars because the hole I had to cut to get the box into (replacing underpowered unit) had to be cut slightly larger than the grill that covers it. It was quick to finish and paint, but it wasn't as easy as it might have been. Still, highly recommended.

  • Installing a timed switch to control the fan

    Hi. I have installed a Lutron countdown fan control timer to control the fan and it seems not to run at full power. Have you encountered this? Do you have any suggestions for installing a timer to control the fan? The Lutron switch I used was model number MA-T51. Thanks.
    Asked by: Michael
    Thank you for your question on the model QTXEN050 exhaust fan. You can use any simple line switchable timer on this exhaust fan. Some electrical timers can cause strange operation of the exhaust fans and we would not recommend using them. Since the unit is not tested with the Lutron MA-T51 electronic timer, we cannot tell you how it would operate with it.

    Non-working QTXEN110S-B

    Hi, I have two QTXEN110S-B fans which appear to not work (they came with the house and are probably 7 years old). The indicator light on humidity/timer control unit blinks about 9 times, then is solid for a few seconds before blinking again. I tried toggling power on-off-on to the fans, but that doesn't appear to change the behavior. It seems that the unit is getting power, but is it possible the humidity/timer unit isn't working correctly? Thank you
    Asked by: William
    Thank you for your question on the model QTXEN110S-B humidity sensing exhaust fan. The normal mode is 5-seconds on and off. If it blinks rapidly for 5-seconds and then off, check the sensor connections on the grille and fan housing. If the connections are good, the problem could be in the control assembly or the sensor (which is part of the grille assembly). Please contact the Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 for further assistance.

    can I disconnect the sensor so it only runs off a switch

    If I can disconnect the sensor can you sent a link to the wiring diagram. It seems like the fan comes on to much with the sensor attached.

    Insert QTEN080 blower assembly into housing for QTEN050

    I want to upgrade from the QTEN050 to the QTEN080. the QTEN050 just isn't strong enough. Can I just remove the QTEN050 blower assembly and insert an QTEN080 blower assembly in the QTEN050 housing? I really don't want to tear out the entire thing and start over.
    Asked by: Scott
    Thank you for your question. You should be able to just replace the blower assembly with the QTXEN080 version. Do note, the blower will be louder than the previous unit. Also, if there are any restrictions in your duct work, the fan could also not perform as advertised. If you need further assistance, please call Technical Support at 888-336-6151.

    Can I keep a 4&quot; duct with the QTXEN150

    The QTRN110F-C is great but doesn't move enough air in our large bathroom (we're most concerned about moisture). The QTRN110 unit has a 4&quot; duct, while the QTXEN uses a 6&quot;. The question of the day: can I install the QTXEN and use a 6x4 adapter/reducer to get the air to the existing exhaust vent? I don't want to pull the old one from the roof unless absolutely necessary... ? Thanks
    Asked by: Stamp
    Thank you for your question on the model QTXEN150 exhaust fan. The QTXEN150 must be installed with six inch duct work. It cannot be installed with four inch.
