Rated 2 out of 5 by ChuckJ Fair to average
Bought five fans for bathroom installation in 2 rental buildings. Four worked as advertised but the fifth rattles loudly about 6 out of 10 times. No screws in unit or screws to studs are loose so it must be the fan motor that has a defect.
The unit is loud which was expected but as previously stated the venting of bath moisture is accomplished. I rated 2 stars because of loudness and defective unit.

Moisture accumulation in a recently remodeled bathroom called for a vent fan. I wanted one that had a light incorporated into it. This model looks clean and neat. It had everything I needed. My electrician installed it last month with no issues, and it is working very well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Professor Great new vent install to replace old bathroom light fixture
Our master bathroom was built in 84 with only an overhead light fixture and no fan. After owning this house for 8 years, today I summoned the courage to replace our light with this NuTone fan light combo. After purchasing this unit and the wall vent kit at the local Home Depot, I set forth on our adventure. First thing I noticed is that our NuTone unit came without any install instructions. I figure that's okay since instructions aren't for me anyways, they are for people who can't figure it out themselves or who need the 800 number to call for help. I knew going into this that it would be a complete pain to complete the install because the location is on the opposite side of the house from the attic entry and I would have to crawl across the vaulted ceiling and into an unexplored area above the master bath. I also needed to bust out the Sawzall and a few Wrecker blades to cut through the stucco wall for the external vent, but i would have had to do that with any other fan as well. After a few hours of sweating profusely and a great deal of profanity, I have a great looking fan and light in the bathroom and it is much less smelly in there after dropping the Browns off at the Super Bowl. Everyone is happy with it. It is quiet and the lighting in the bath is perfect since I used one of the Phillips L-Prize LED bulbs and it fit perfect. I see a lot of complaints on here about the CFLs not fitting but you guys should seriously consider no longer using them anyways. They contain enough mercury to be mildly hazardous to your family if broken and not cleaned up properly, it's true you can look it up on Snopes. Besides they are so 20th century, LED lights are better color temperature, brighter, and more efficient than those CFLs you have been buying from China. Anyways, I step off this soapbox after mentioning that this unit is well worth the money we paid for it.

If you've not installed this device, or similar, don't count on using the directions - they are useless and the graphics illegible. I wanted to simply replace a fan unit with one that had a light, after hours in the attic, then trying to get fan and light to stay in place, with only 1 screw and 2 "Slots" now I have to go back to Home Depot to get a different light bulb because this doesn't fit a CF type bulb, which is basically all there is. I would have been willing to pay more, a lot more, for a unit that had fewer parts to take a part then put back together - it's not at all like the box.

It was louder than I thought it would be, but over time it seems to be just fine.
