I originally bought the 70 CFM fan for our bathroom and mounted it in a panel in the window. While it did move some air, it wasn't nearly enough for super hot/steamy showers. The 6" gets the job done really well. While it is louder than the 4" fan, the high volume and metal construction make it a much better option. We had been experiencing mold in the bathroom (with no fan at all), and this unit has eliminated it. Aside from the somewhat high noise level, it works like a charm! The fan sounds louder than it really is in the video.
I installed this fan to mount right above the oven vent in our home. The air-fryer function of the oven inevitably generates smoke that our over-the-stove microwave vent could not handle and would fill the kitchen with smoke. Didn't want the expense of a big oven vent or lose the location of the microwave so thought I would try this. Our kitchen back into the garage so it was easy to just vent smoke out there. Eventually I will connect to the outside. Works great!! Sucks ALL the smoke from the oven out of the kitchen -- in fact air movement is enough to vent anything on top of the stove, too, although that wasn't what I put it in for. Seems well made and fits a 6" hole if you have a saw that can make one. Makes some noise, but not as much as the microwave vent on high. I wonder if I could use it with a speed control... hmmmm...
Sturdily built! My use required the fan to blow the opposite direction. To do this required the back to be removed and switching the red and yellow wires. Now it works perfectly in the opposite direction. I also added a grommet to protect the wire as it goes through the metal frame.
Only thing troubling that I found is the ground (green) wire was entirely disconnected when I opened the fan! It was stripped but just floating there not touching anything. Not a huge issue since this isn't a product that a consumer will normally be touching while using but it's just a silly QA mistake. There is a sticker on the inside of the frame showing the ground should be connected there. I added a small lug to attach it to one of the frame screw.
