It gives professionals the flexibility to handle new construction or room-side retrofit installations from one hard-working product line with a full range of operating points. Innovations include foldable mounting ears and new damper and housing technology that improve building airtightness like never before. And all with new grille designs that are at home in any decor.

How effective is this compared to others on market?
Very happy with this newer model NuTone fan. It's definitely quieter, and LED light is a vast improvement, but still seems to take quite a while to completely remove moisture build-up from shower in 6' x 6' room. Questioning it's effective draw/circulation ability against others on the market.

How to disable/unplug the LED light?
The LED light on our AEN80L is too bright for us personally. How to disable/unplug this LED light only since it shares the same light switch for the bathroom light? Is there a cover for this fan WITHOUT the LED light I can purchase to replace this one?
Thank you for your question on the AEN80L ventilation fan with light. The LED light is a module that connects to the wire panel assembly. You can simply disconnect the LED from the receptacle to not use the LED portion. For further assistance, contact Technical Support at 888-336-6151.

Can this fan unit be used if we have attic access?
We are remodeling our bathroom, which has an existing fan/light unit vented into the attic. Can we use this NuTone unit with our existing setup?
Thank you for your question on the model AEN80L exhaust fan/LED light. The AEN80L is designed for new construction or retrofit applications, where attic access is not available. We always recommend venting an exhaust fan completely outside and not directly into the attic. Venting directly into an attic can cause mold and mildew problems as well as problems with your roof.

What type of timer switch can be used for the fan? Can the Led light be put on a dimmer?
Thank you for your question on the model AEN80L exhaust fan/LED light. You can use any simple line switchable timer with the exhaust fan. The LED light cannot be used with a dimmer.

Retrofit Into QT-80N-B Housing?
This looks like it would fit directly in the NuTone QT-80N-B housing. Would that be a good assumption? Or do I need to pull the old housing out completely?
Thank you for your question. The AEN80L will not line up correctly with the QT80N-B housing. You would need to replace your current housing and install the AEN80L according to the installation instructions for proper ventilation. For further assistance you may contact Nutone Technical Support at 888-336-6151.
