  • AERN100SN is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice lighting Wasn't too sure about how bright the light would be with the frost globe it comes with. After installing it, it is brighter than I imagined it would be. Perfect amount of light above our shower and the exhaust fan is actually pretty quiet compared to others I have heard before. This is our first exhaust fan in our bathroom. Hoping it lasts, so far been going good and it has been almost 6 months. I would recommend this unit for sure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Love our new light fan, installed in daughter's bathroom which was always wet after her marathon showers. Installing was easy, Now there is no problem during and after shower. It looks great and performs exactly the way I had hoped.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Foggy Mirros I was excited to have this particular exhaust fan installed...after having the old, outdated one removed as it did not get rid of my foggy mirrors. After installation, I took a hot shower and again the foggy mirrors were still there. I would hate to pay someone to have it removed then exchanged for another brand product at Home Depot. If there are any suggestions to help in this matter, I would appreciate it!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rusts and flickers I purchased this bathroom fan and light less than a year ago and it already needs to be replaced. The first problem I had was it began rusting all over. That was manageable. Then several of the LEDs died out with I found extremely odd since I have LED lighting elsewhere that has worked going on 7 years. Soon after those few diodes died 1-2 others began to intermittently flash and now the entire set of lights repeatedly turns on and off like a slow strobe light. It is not a power issue, the fan remains running without any interruption of power. This was not a cheap purchase and I am nearly positive I don’t have a reciept anymore so now I just have to find another light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style Bought this to replace an existing fan. The fan is very quiet and the light is perfect for my area. The LED light is soft white with no blue harshness to the eye. I would definitely recommend this fan to both family and friends. Keep up the good work.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Way too bright and no way to dim... I like how quiet this light is.. but we had to disable the LED lighting... Blazing bright. I wish I had bought a light with bulbs I could choose or dim. A total waste for my application. Now I have to replace it after a year of either blinding light, or no light

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really sucks This fan moves air nicely. Metal finishes are affected by the moisture it removes from the shower moisture.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Light/Exhaust Fan combination Purchased and installed this Light/Exhaust Fan combination and am very pleased with its overall operation in lighting and exhaust capabilities. It is also a low energy user as the light fixture part is LED's which help to lower my electric bill. A great product I recommend to all with small to medium size bathrooms.

    Retrofit with 3" duct

    I want to replace the fan in my bathroom with a quieter fan/light combination. The old fan has a three inch outlet, and I can't determine the size of the duct on the other side without tearing out the existing housing, which is pretty irreversible. So before I buy and start cutting into the ceiling, I need to know, if the duct is 3" all the way to the roof, will this light/fan combo work with an adapter to get it down to 3" or will that sufficiently reduce the performance where it is no longer a good choice for this retrofit.
    Asked by: Jay
    Thank you for your question. The AERN100SN requires 4” round duct work. You cannot taper the 4” duct to 3” duct. You will have to replace your current duct work with 4” rigid to use the AERN100SN. For further assistance, contact Nutone Technical Support at 888-336-6151.

    My wiring going up to the box is red, black, white and copper?

    How should I wire the fan? AERN100SN
    Asked by: Bill
    Thank you for your question on the model AERN100SN exhaust fan/light. There will be two white wires, two black wires and two green ground wires coming out of the AERN100SN. The green wires would go to the house bare copper wire and the white wires would go to the house white wire. One of the black wires would go to the black power wire coming from one of the wall switches and the other black wire would go to the red power wire coming from the second wall switch. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 if you need further assistance.

    Why does the light and fan turn on about 1-2 seconds after I turn the switch on?

    Fan was newly purchased and installed on October 20th, 2018. When I turn on the bathroom light switch, there is a noticeable 1-2 second delay until the LED lights come on. I notice that at night, when the bathroom is dark, when I turn on the light switch, the LEDs glow very dimly until 1-2 seconds later, when they come on at full brightness. No other LED fixtures in my house exhibit this behavior, and I'm curious to know why this one does.
    Asked by: Bill
    Thank you for your question. The AERN100SN uses an LED driver, and it is possible that your LED driver is defective. Please contact Technical Support at 888-336-6151 for further assistance.

    Can the Bulb be changed to a natural white light?

    Can the Bulb be changed to a natural white light?
    Asked by: tame51
    Thank you for your question. This unit uses an LED module as opposed to an actual bulb. The AERN100SN uses an 18 Watt integrated 3000K color temperature LED which provides a soft white light. For more information, you can contact Nutone Technical Support at 888-336-6151.
