  • This patent-pending series marks a revolution of our mid-range ventilation fans. 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.

  • AEN80BL is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dumbest design award goes to... NuTone!!! Who in their right mind ever thought of a mechanism for attaching the light housing to the exhaust fan frame?? A two year old kid has more ingenuity. Fought with it for two hours and have now decided it is easier to start from scratch with a better designed exhaust fan than to fool with this useless garbage. Thanks for wasting my time NuTone. #buyhamptonbreeze

  • Damper noise in windy conditions

    Damper flaps constantly in windy conditions. It's very annoying. Is there any way to prevent this with my current model, AEN80BL? Do you have a model with an electronically controlled damper? Thanks.
    Asked by: Dave
    Thank you for your question. AEN80 series comes with a built in back draft damper. If the duct work connected to the AEN80 is not connected to an outside roof/wall cap, outside air will return to the unit. The outside roof/wall cap has a back draft damper as well that prevents outside air from entering the home. For further assistance, contact Technical Support at 888-336-6151.

    Is the light dimmable? and does it meet the new 2016 CA T24 requirement?

    Asked by: Scott
    Thank you for your question on the model AEN80BL exhaust fan/LED light. The light is not dimmable. The spec sheet for the AEN80L is available for download from our web site. You would need to check locally to see if it meets the new California T24 requirement.
