  • 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.

    • 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
    • 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.*

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed in noice level. The reason I bought this fan was based on its rating of 2.0 Sones. is just as noisy as the vintage fan I replaced. It exhausts okay but the noise level in a small bathroom (50 sq ft) with a tile floor is unacceptable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The ARN80 I purchased is a replacement for the original bathroom exhaust fan which was 28 yrs old. The ARN80 is quiet and it pulls most of the moisture out before it covers the walls and mirrors. It was easy to install, give yourself at least 2 or 3 hours. I replaced the 3" vent pipe with 4" vent piping, which took a little more time. Attic access is not required, but helpful if your planning on replacing the vent pipe. This is the second ARN80 I installed in the last 2 months. Great product / Great buy. Home Depot has all the accessories needed for a DIY project, and all the accessories are in the same isle as the exhaust fans. When buying, pay close attention to the CFM's and Sound level.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fan is not as quiet as advertised. This fan in the store was billed as quiet, but it rattles and is noisier than my old fan that I replaced. This fan was installed by a contractor so not installed incorrectly. Very disappointing.

  • Whatbis the little round cylinder thing hanging loose inside the fan

    Asked by: Hvacyech4994
    Thank you for your question on the model ARN80 exhaust fan. The round cylinder thing you are referring to is a starting capacitor for the motor.

    How long can the duct be? I want to vent out the side of the house about 14'

    Asked by: bathfan
    Thank you for your question on the model ARN80 exhaust fan. The ARN80 can handle up to 23 feet of four inch, straight rigid duct work. You would need to reduce that distance by four feet for every elbow installed.

    The grille spring will pop off on one side or the other .

    When the grille gets within one inch of the ceiling one side comes off. One problem is the electrical box is in the way of the spring but I do not think that is whats causing this.
