  • AERN110 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very effcetive product My Master bathroom was a closet converted to a bathroom with a small window and every time I took a shower I had condensation on the walls. Once I had this NUtone vent installed problem resolved.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The sound is heavenly This fan is wonderful. It is great that I don't have to be hearing a loud fan noise while it is on. The installation was easy but you don't have to make that big of hole to insert.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful and quiet. Easy install. For the cfm rating this fan is pretty quiet and it was easy to install. I have purchased 3 of them as replacements for small units that were very loud. Happy these are a lot better. They were also easy to install.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Power and Very Quiet I purchased and installed 4 or these ventilating AERN 110 in our home in our bathrooms. Bathroom range in size from half bath to Master bathroom. The fans do a superb job of exhausting moisture. Even during hot showers the bathroom mirrors stay clear and well ventilated. The fans are so quiet that you cannot hear them run during showers of standing outside the bathroom door. Great value and performance for the money.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still loud We changed our very loud original fan for this one and were disappointed that at 1.0 scones it is still loud and the fan doesn't clear the steam as expected. My husband had to install this fan from the attic and discovered that when when the house was built the vent ducting in the attic for this fan is over 25 feet long instead of no more than 10 feet long and 3-inches around instead of 4-inches around, and connects to another bathroom vent fan that was also installed incorrectly. My husband had to "jury rig" the fitting to make a 3-inch vent duct fit the 4-inch fan duct As a result of the incorrect original installation of ducting, both length and circumference, this fan isn't as quiet nor does it clear the steam as we expected; I took a shower with the fan on and the bathroom door open and the mirrors were still fogged up. My husband and I are positive that if the length and size of the vent ducting are correct this fan would be quiet and work well. I have to give this fan's performance a 3-star based on the vent ducting in my house not yours.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bathroom fan It works good but it is to loud! direct replacement for older version

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a great product When installing the fan we had to cut out a bigger hole to install it. The instructions were so easy to follow. It is much quieter running than the older fan in the bathroom and the CF is perfect for the size of the bathroom and it looks great!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some notes on retrofits I purchased this product to replace a NuTone fan that had been installed some 30 years ago. This fan is indeed a bit quieter than the one that was replaced. Certainly not a whisper quiet fan, but perfectly acceptable for a bathroom. It works better than the fan it replaced and I am very happy with it. Since this was a retrofit installation, I did encounter a few issues that might be worth pointing out to others who are thinking of purchasing for this purpose. Reading the specifications, it looked like it was a similar size to the existing fan. I thought this might be a 10 minute replacement effort. Well, not quite. After removing the existing fan, I discovered that the old fan had the electrical and duct connection on the same side. The new fan has them on the opposite sides. This meant either the electrical connection or the exhaust ducting had to be re-routed. It was easier for me to re-route the ducting. I did have to cut out about a half inch of sheetrock to get the unit to fit. Not really an issue. I did make the mistake of mounting the unit on the edge of the opening. This left about a 2 inch gap on one side. I thought the fan cover would hide this opening. Turns out it didn’t, so I had to un-mount the unit and slide it over about an inch so the unit was centered in the opening. Notes: 1. Use screws to mount the unit to the joist. If it needs to be moved for any reason, it is much simpler to unscrew as opposed to pulling nails. 2. Center the unit in the opening. If there is an opening of an inch or so on each side, it may help with some of the other items below. I then installed the cover on the fan. Fairly simple to do, but the cover was oriented the wrong direction and thus didn’t cover the holes in the ceiling. The unit as shipped only allows for the cover to be installed in this one direction. It would be so much easier if it could be installed in either direction. To fix this, I had to create a mechanism to hold the cover in the opposite direction. I did this by drilling holes in the sides of the unit. I then used a #8 sheet metal screw, a #8 washer, a fender washer, another #8 washer, and a ¼” spacer. (The #8 washers prevent the screw and spacer from slipping through the hole in the fender washer. One could probably use a #10 sheet metal screw and not require the #8 washers). I screwed these into the just drilled holes and then installed the cover to make sure it was centered over the ceiling opening. This test fitting was done without the fan installed. To install the fan, these screws have to be removed so the unit can get installed. Then the screws can get installed again and the cover can be installed. Now, it might be better to use regular screws with nuts and lock washers *IF* there is space to get the lock washers and nuts on the outside of the unit (i.e. you can get your fingers in the space outside the unit to hold the nuts and lock washer). This would be a bit more stable, but the sheet metal screws seem to be working fine so far. For new installations I doubt these problems would arise. But it might be worth considering what might be needed when replacing with a unit in the future. Perhaps locating the electrical connections and vents such that there is slack and they would have enough slack to connect to all sides of the replacement unit. I would suggest that NuTone make it such that the cover could be installed in either direction. As a retrofit unit, it just makes sense to do so.

  • 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?
    Asked by: TOD
    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.

    Asked by: LUO
    Thank you for your question on the model AERN110 exhaust fan. You can use a solid state speed control for the fan on the AERN110 to control the speed of the fan. If you are referring to using a dimmer on the AERN110L LED light, you cannot use a dimmer on the light.

    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).
    Asked by: Andrew
    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.

    Damper/Duct Connector

    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. Thanks
    Asked by: Jules
    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.
