  • 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.

    • 80 CFM reduces humidity to quickly eliminate fogged mirrors and manage moisture in bathrooms up to 75 square feet, so your vision will always be clear and your surroundings will always be comfortable
    • Retrofit installations can be done entirely from the room-side – no attic access required. This means a faster, easier installation, so you can move on to something else
    • With our TrueSeal™ Damper Technology, InVent fans reduce air leakage by up to Fifty Percent* compared to competitive models, resulting in better home performance via blower door tests and reducing cold and warm air backdrafts
    • EzDuct™ Connector can be installed room-side with no attic access required, fan housing connection have never been easier
    • UL Listed for use over tubs and showers with a GFCI circuit; so you can capture the steam before it spreads throughout the room by locating your fan exactly where you need it the most
    • 100W max. incandescent A19 type bulb or energy efficient equivalent bulb with Maximum Overall Length (M.O.L.) of 4.4" or less (bulb not included)
    • With our TrueSeal™ Damper Technology, InVent fans reduce air leakage by up to 50% compared to competitive models, resulting in better home performance via blower door tests.*

    *Testing reflects total fan housing airtightness. See nutone.com/invent for more details.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from include instructions for changing the bulb with the product I looked everywhere for instructions on how to replace the bulb and found them in one of NuTone's reply's to a previous review. If you had the fan installed by an electrician as we did, the only thing in the instructions that is important is how to replace the bulb. If you hold the side of the grill and gently push the opposite side of the light lens towards this side, the light lens is very easy to remove. The clips are not strong enough to keep the grill from moving when you push on the light lens to remove it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, efficient exhaust fan. I am very pleased with this purchase. Previously, my bathroom had no exhaust fan, which resulted in excessive moisture on the walls. I chose this fan based on research I did on the InVent series fans from Broan. I liked the fact that it has a damper, which closes after use, so as to not allow interior heat to escape. I also chose this model for its light. I used a LED, which lights up the entire bathroom. Its rating of 0.8 Sones makes it quiet. I coupled the install with a humidity sensor next to my switch for the bathroom light. Even manually turning it on, it shuts itself off after bathing, which is nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs perfectly, wish I’d bought it sooner. Runs quietly, powerful fan keeps bathroom clear of water vapor even after several consecutive hot showers. No more water running down the walls or mildew!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Everything works just fine but the screen cover with the light assy. I have everything installed without any complaint whatsoever until I got into trying to install the screen assy. The spring loaded wire two pieces does not work at all, also hardly anything about the installation is mentioned anywhere in the instruction, the wire will come out where it attaches to the metal box or at the place where it attaches to the screen assembly it is a most frustrating exercise of failure. I gave up as my neck has started to bother me looking up to try and install the screen. My mind was set in maybe installing a angle bracket and a couple of screws to hold the screen up. I found you guys in the internet and thought maybe I can learn about the ARN80L that I got from Home Depot. So after reading all the reviews I got hold of a number I can call.

  • how in the world do you remove light cover to change bulb??

    Asked by: kayrv
    The light cover squeezes in on two sides to disengage from the housing so it can be removed to replace the light bulb

    Is the light and fan capable of being on separate switches?

    Asked by: John
    Yes. There is wiring within the housing for both (separate). With that said, you do need the wiring within the wall for both switches as well. Note: The product includes a wiring diagram.

    What motor speed and/or humidity sensor is compatible with ARN80L?

    I wish to add motor speed control and a humidity-sensing on/off switch. Do you market such accessories? If not, could you tell me what type motor controller to use? I cannot tell from, reading your spec's whether or not this unit uses a capacitive-start motor (some controllers I have looked into specify not to use with capacitive-start motors).
    Asked by: David C
    Thank you for your question on model ARN80L exhaust fan/light. You can use a solid state speed control on the ARN80L (our model number is 57W). We also have two wall humidity sensors that can be used with the ARN80L (our model numbers DH100W and 82W). Please contact the Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 if you need further assistance.

    Wiring question

    I am performing a retrofit and there is only 2 wires coming through, one gray and one orange with black stripe. The wires on the arn80l model are 2 sets of green white and black. Can i wire the fan and light to turn on from one switch and if so which wires go together?
    Asked by: Bullsfan7
    Thank you for your question. Connect power cable to housing with appropriate UL approved connector. Connect black to black, white to white and green to green or bare wire. You must determine your “Hot” and your “Neutral” wires, and then you can wire them to a single switch. For further assistance, contact Nutone Technical Support at 888-336-6151.
