can this fan be installed vertically, space permitting?
I have a skylight over a shower and would like to install it on the wall below to remove the moisture. If this model can't be installed that way, can you recommend a different model?
You can install in a wall, as long as the bottom of the unit is at least 8 feet above the floor, per the comments in the instructions.

Two NuTone fans connected to one vent out
I am remodeling two adjoining bathrooms in single family house, I bought two NuTone AERN110 fans to connect to one exhaust through roof. My construction inspector wants to know if AERN110 can fit manufacturer specifications to be connected to one exhaust (from each a duct would go to Y and then one pipe through the roof).
Thank you for the question on the model AERN110 exhaust fan. We recommend that each fan have its own individual duct work. Rigid metal duct work is preferred. We do not recommend ducting two fans into a single duct. For further questions, please contact our Technical Support Department at 888-336-6151.

The instruction instructions implies a damper is provided. There is a roundish flat disk in the box with the notation Up (with an arrow pointing up) and Fan Side. This appears to have to be installed in the connector but when installed, it remains stationary in the horizontal position (assuming the fan is mounted in a ceiling). Is this how it is installed? Is it supposed to remain stationary? I ask because a damper usually opens and closes.
Thank you for your question. The damper door located inside of the duct connector should be installed with the angle lip facing the blower assembly and the “Up arrow” and “Fan side” writing facing the floor once installed properly. For further assistance please call Nutone Technical Support at 888-336-6151.
