  • ILF250 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Noisy, I hooked up the fan before installing.. Silent. Now with grille, ducting and damper it is really noisy. I tried everything, insulation, etc.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from powerful air venting! I use this with our bathroom exhaust with the fan in the garage. It does a very quiet efficient job.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from niceandquiet we have a larger bathroom and this fan ventilates well while very quiet. Something to keep in mind--it's very nice not to have the fan right on the ceiling rattling away. The only sound is the whoosh of air. Remember to buy the full kit, because aftermarket, the vent covers only come in 6-packs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This fan works great, easy to install, clears the bathroom fast and is alot quieter but not silent. With the light weight I did not have to mount it solid to a beam but just in line and supported with metal strapping. Used 6" ducting all the way then taped and insulated the whole thing. I love it, this is one of the best additions I have done to this house. Totally removes the condensation from the bathroom during and after a shower, now the mirror does not even fog. The power connectons require the use of a very small bladed screwdriver, remember to bring it with you when installing it in a hard to get to area.

  • What is the overall height of the unit. I need to replace a Fantech FR150 unit that failed.

    Asked by: Dennis
    Thank you for your question. The overall height of the ILF250 is just less than 10”. This unit comes with a mounting bracket for easy adjustments. For further assistance, contact Nutone Technical Support at 888-336-6151.

    Can you use this motor with 4" ducting that is already installed? if so will you still get 250 CFM?….if not about how many CFM would it achieve?

    Asked by: DJM
    Thank you for your question on the model ILF250 in-line exhaust fan. The ILF250 requires the use of six inch preferably rigid duct work. We have no data on the ILF250 using four inch duct work, but it would be significantly lower CFM, the fan motor will be overworked and probably burn out prematurely. This would also void the warranty.

    Is the ILF250 a Division 1 fan and is it Explosion Proof rated?

    I am looking for a 6" Division 1, explosion proof in-line exhaust fan,120V for a chemical lab exhaust. I was thinking these are sometimes used with radon gas exhausting so was wandering if it would work for the lab application. I am pretty sure I would need a PVC or expoxy coated fan since the ductwork is all pvc. Advise ASAP.
    Asked by: Stone
    Thank you for your question. This exhaust fan does not have an expolsion proof rating on it. I would suggest that you contact our Techncial Support Group at 888-336-6151 and ask if our heavy duty (HD80) model can be used in this application. THanks, again.

    How do I determine what size fan to use?

    Asked by: Mark
    Thank you for your question on the model ILF250 in-line exhaust fan. To determine the size fan needed for a bathroom, you would take the square footage of the bathroom and multiply by 1.07. That would be the absolute minimum CFM needed with an eight foot ceiling. If the ceiling is ten foot, multiply the answer by 1.25, for 12 foot multiply by 1.5 and so on. The optimum CFM would be 1-1/2 to 2 times the minimum. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 if you need further assistance.

    Does the bafel come in silver or other colors beside white?

    Asked by: Mchael
    Thank you for your question on the model ILF250 in-line fan. The grilles for the ILF250 only come in white. There are no other colors available.
