Rated 2 out of 5 by HairCaughtInAFan Decibel level too extreme for residential bathroom
While this might work great at 50CFM to remove air in a windowless bathroom, it's not worth the trade-off in DEAFENING noise for residential applications. Our old one burned out (literally electrical wiring producing burning and smoke), and replaced with same new fan. The old motor was crusted with grey dust (which is probably why it failed) even though the grill was cleaned and vacuumed constantly, but probably why it was half the noise when we took residence. Additionally, we have to run the fan continuously to keep moisture out of the small bathroom for a high occupancy residence. Looking at the specs, this fan is NOT rated for continuous operation, so it will probably fail sooner than later. Would possibly benefit from not being tied to light switch. Additional comment on noise level in a small bathroom: I cannot hear anything outside of the bathroom even with the bathroom door wide open; I've been in pleasanter industrial environments (I would post the Db level if I had a meter.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bing35 It's great.
The Nu Tone 695 ceiling fan is just great. Removes odors from the bathroom in about 2 minutes. Probably too powerful for the room, but we love it. A bit noisy, but that makes up for the other features. Thanks for producing a good product!! R. C.

Bought this to replace an older one that quit working. Took a few minutes to get out old one out and new one in (30mins), and looks and works good. Very inexpensive and easy to install if you are a DIY'er.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 2mhaas Pretty good fan for the price
I used 4 fans for a spray tan ventialtion system. The fans were easy to install and work well. The noise level is acceptable for the application. Have to be careful with the plastic covers, they break easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Timothy Powerful motor moves air
We had a basement bath with a 30' vent run. Too far for the builder grade exhaust fan that was installed. We needed power more than quiet. This fan has the power to move exhaust the room and its not too loud. EZ to install despite a poor install of the box by the builder.
