  • NuTone ULTRA PRO™ Series Fans deliver everything you wished for in a bath fan – premium ventilation to help reduce airborne pollutants, extremely quiet operation, energy efficiency, consistent power and most impressively, the fastest, easiest, most universal installation available. These fans are ideal for both spot ventilation in humid bathrooms, as well as continuous ventilation to meet various building codes and Green Building standards around the United States.

    • 80 CFM reduces humidity to quickly eliminate fogged mirrors and manage moisture in bathrooms up to 75 square feet, so your vision will always be clear and your surroundings will always be comfortable
    • QStream™ Technology - State-of-the-art blower design with airflow-smoothing baffles optimally smoothes airflow and reduce turbulence so the wheel can turn more slowly and quietly with no airflow loss
    • QFlow™ Technology - Duct connector damper flap is completely removed from airstream to reduce static pressure again, allowing the blower to turn more slowly and quietly, Damper also seals against perimeter surfaces when closed to prevent backdrafts
    • ULTRALucent™ Lighting Technology provides 36 watt lights (two 18-watt bulbs included) delivering the brightness (measured in lumens) of models previously requiring 60 watts of CFL output – You get the best of both worlds; clear, even lighting with no hot spots and smaller energy bills
    • ULTRAQuick™ Installation Technology uses an exclusive telescoping mounting frame with pre-installed screws, snap-in housing, snap-in blower and an inside-out mounting duct connector that deliver the fastest, easiest, most universal installation
    • Retrofit installations can be done entirely from the room-side – no attic access required. This means a faster, easier installation, so you can move on to something else
    • Unique telescoping mounting frame can be placed and fastened through drywall hole because it expands from 14” to 24” and fits any type of joist, I-Joist or truss construction for a “no guesswork” installation to make the work fast and easy
    • Snap-in housing and blower further simplify installation since you can hear – and feel – when they are properly seated. Easy-to-position carriage allows housing location adjustment between joists so you can control the correct ceiling placement
    • UL Listed for use over tubs and showers with a GFCI circuit; so you can capture the steam before it spreads throughout the room by locating your fan exactly where you need it the most
    • Can be used to comply with ASHRAE 62.2 and CALGreen

  • RN80L is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fan. This fan is to replace a 17 year old NuTone unit that worked fine but had gotten quite noisy. This unit was an easy retrofit into our existing 4" vent piping. The .3 Sone rating was a big selling point in replacing our old unit, and is much quieter.

    What is the difference between the RN80L and themARN80L?

    Asked by: Webunit
    Thank you for your question on the model RN80L exhaust fan/light/night light and ARN80L exhaust fan/light. The main difference is that the RN80L designed for better installation from below (without attic access) has a night light, is quieter (&lt;0.3 sones), is Energy Star qualified and uses two 18 watt maximum fluorescent bulbs. The ARN80L is rated at 0.8 sones, does not have a night light and uses a 100 watt maximum incandescent bulb. The spec sheets and installation instructions are available for download from our web site for your convenience.

    My ceiling is about 5/8&quot; to 3/4&quot; thick (lathe and plaster) - in other words, not standard 1/2&quot; drywall. Any other installation guidelines for RN8)L

    Asked by: dannyboy
    Thank you for your question on the model RN80L exhaust fan/light. The RN80L is designed to be installed in a &frac12; inch ceiling, but you still may be able to get away with 5/8 inch. You will definitely have a problem installing this unit if the ceiling thickness is more than that. I&rsquo;m sorry, but we would not have a solution for that installation.

    can you use a reducer with this to reduce from 4&quot; to 3&quot; duct?

    Asked by: Russ
    Thank you for your question on the model RN80L exhaust fan/light/night light. The RN80L is designed to use six inch, preferably rigid duct work, but a six inch to four inch transition is included if you have existing four inch duct work. We do not recommend or suggest using any smaller duct work with this unit.

    My ceiling is 3/4&quot; thick. Can I purchase a top support in place of the adjustable bottom support to control (i.e. lower) the depth of the housing?

    The RN80L comes with the adjustable support that mounts to the bottom of the joist.
    Asked by: dannyboy
    Thank you for your question on the model RN80L exhaust fan/light. There is no option for a top support for the RN80L. We have no option for installing the RN80L in a &frac34; inch thick ceiling.
