    NuTone ULTRA GREEN™ Motion Sensing Fans deliver everything you wished for in a bath fan – premium ventilation to help reduce airborne pollutants, ease of installation, energy efficiency, consistent power, extremely quiet operation and multi-speed capability. Best of all, they have the ability to know when they should be in the “normal” continuous ventilation mode and when they should kick up to the high speed mode to evacuate shower humidity or odors.

    • 80 CFM quickly reduces humidity to prevent or eliminate fogged mirrors and manage moisture in bathrooms up to 70 square feet, so your vision will always be clear and your surroundings will always be comfortable
    • ULTRASense™ M, Motion Sensing Technology, offers a hands-free solution for maximum convenience. The fan will increase to maximum speed from the lower, continuous setting when motion is detected -- which is ideal for family members who forget to turn the fan on -- and will stay on the max setting for the user-set 5-60 minute period after no motion is detected, before falling back to the continuous setting
    • Multi-Speed operation handles demanding spot ventilation needs, but can also pull double-duty as a great continuous ventilation solution to meet today’s stringent requirements. Upon installation, a continuous CFM adjustment dial is set to precisely control the airflow for the size of your house – so you’ll enjoy a successful inspection and not over-ventilate. A timer dial (adjustable from 5-60 minutes) is set at the same time to control how long the fan runs at maximum CFM, before automatically returning to the lower continuous ventilation level – all after you leave the room
    • ULTRALucent™ Lighting Technology provides 36 watt lights (two 18-watt bulbs included) delivering the brightness (measured in lumens) of models previously requiring 60 watts of CFL output – You get the best of both worlds; clear, even lighting with no hot spots and smaller energy bills
    • ULTRASilent™ with QStream™ Sound Technology results in operation at less than 0.3 Sones – the quietest sound rating attainable -- for an environment that is so quiet, you’ll likely forget the fan is on
    • ULTRAQuick™ Installation Technology uses an exclusive telescoping mounting frame with pre-installed screws, snap-in housing, snap-in blower and an inside-out mounting duct connector that deliver the fastest, easiest, most universal installation
    • 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
    • Unique telescoping mounting frame can be placed and fastened through drywall hole because it expands from 14” to 24” and fits any type of joist, I-Joist or truss construction for a “no guesswork” installation to make the work fast and easy
    • Snap-in housing and blower further simplify installation since you can hear – and feel – when they are properly seated. Easy-to-position carriage allows housing location adjustment between joists so you can control the correct ceiling placement
    • ULTRASmart™ DC Motor & Control Technology provides energy efficiency almost 10 times greater than ENERGY STAR® requirements and maintains rated power (CFM) in nearly every installation. You have confidence you’re getting the expected performance and won’t even notice the fan usage on your utility bill
    • 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
    • Compatible with Radiation Damper RDFU which helps prevent flame and heat from spreading to other areas in multi-level buildings. In some cases an accessory wire jumper kit is required. This kit (model RDJUMPU) provides the additional lighting and sensing wire length necessary to bypass the damper
    • Can be used to comply with ASHRAE 62.2 and CALGreen

  • Will this fan work if I have to reduce to 3&quot; duct?

    Asked by: Burt
    Thank you for your question on the model ZN80ML multi-speed ventilation fan/light/night light and motion sensor. The ZN80ML is designed to be used with six inch, preferably rigid, duct work but it can be used with the six inch to four inch reducer that is included with it. We do not recommend reducing the duct work any smaller than four inches.

    What is the wattage used?

    I have looked at the various links on your website for this product but can only find the wattage of the bulbs. I understand the wattage of the fan itself will be different dependant on the adjustable CFM, etc. I am in need of a number to plug in to the state's program called &quot;WeatherWorks&quot;
    Asked by: Melanie
    Thank you for your question on the model ZN80ML multi-speed exhaust fan/light with motion sensor. The total current draw of the ZN80ML is 0.9 amps which would put the wattage at approximately 100 &ndash; 110 watts.

    Continuous ventilation feature disable

    Can you disable the continuous 24/7 ventilation feature? The specifications and instructions are not clear on this.
    Asked by: hevykevy420
    Thank you for your question on the model ZN80ML motion sensing, multi-speed exhaust fan/light/night light. The ZN80ML is designed to run at a low speed at all times. This feature cannot be disabled.

    Replace a Nutone 668RP with a ZN80ML.

    I want to replace a Nutone 668RP with a ZN80ML. The housing size of the 668RP will leave a gap in the ceiling. What is the best method to fill the gap. Does Nutone offer filler plates or something similar?
    Asked by: jp
    Thank you for your question on the model 668RP exhaust fan/light and the ZN80ML multi-speed exhaust fan/light/night light and motion sensor. You will need to patch the ceiling after the installation of the ZN80ML. We do not offer filler plates or larger grilles.

    Retrofit switching

    My current fan/light has two switches - one for the fan, one for the light. How would this new fan be switched? Can you walk into the room and just turn on the light? Thanks
    Asked by: Mike
    Thank you for your question on the model ZN110HL multi-speed humidity sensing exhaust fan/light/night light. To operate all functions of the ZN110HL independently, you would need to install a total of five switches with five power wires from the switches to the unit. Please see the installation instructions for this product on our website or contact our Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 for further assistance.
