Shopping for a Quiet Fan A quiet fan has a “sone” rating between .5 and 1.5. A sone is a measure of loudness. The lower the number, the quieter the fan. By contrast, typical low-cost bath fans range from 2 to more than 5 sones (which you can easily hear in the next room). Select the ventilation capacity of the fan that fits the size of your bathroom. To quickly estimate the cfm needed (cubic feet per minute, or how much air a fan moves), a “rule of thumb” is to multiply the length of your bathroom by the width and round up. For example, an 8 x 10-ft. (80 sq. ft.) room would need a vent rate of 80 cfm and would require an 80-cfm fan. Quiet fans have better motors (rated for continuous operation), heavier-duty housings and larger ducts, usually 4 in. They cost considerably more than standard fans. It’s quiet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jb from Very quiet and great air flow I was able to install using 6″ straight metal pipe for exhausting to the outside, per their recommendations. I have a larger bathroom that had a lower power fan and was having mildew problems. The new fan moves air out quickly and leaves the room dry now. I didn’t need the night lite but i wired it together with the fan to help know it’s on (yes it’s that quiet). I had a 2-switch setup and kept the main fan light on the other switch. Recommend the Broan 6″ wall cap for the outside. It’s all metal, has a baffle and wire screen. Good quality. Home depot sells this. The plastic wall cap was cheap and no screen. I sent it back and got the Broan metal one. Date published: 2016-12-31

To properly ventilate your bathroom, remove stale air, unpleasant odors, and reduce harmful moisture buildup there are four criteria you need to consider when choosing a bathroom ventilation fan: size, loudness, style, and features. No matter what your budget or tastes, the two most important criteria are sizing the fan properly to your bathroom and how quiet the fan is.

A new generation of efficient and quiet exhaust fans is now available at home centers and from heating, ventilation and air conditioning suppliers (under “Heating Equipment” in the Yellow Pages). The new fans are virtually silent. They’re also much more powerful and use less energy than the older models. They can even be left on full time if you need continuous ventilation. (Most ordinary fan motors would burn out.) See “Shopping for a Quiet Fan,” below, for more details.

The fan is properly wired and ducted with 3-in. uninsulated ductwork to the roof. If your old fan unit has additional features like a light or heater that operates off a second switch, your electrical wiring will be more complex. If the rewiring confuses you, consult a licensed electrician to work out the details. If you have a second floor above the fan, measure the height of the space available. The new, quieter fans are taller than the old ones, at least 7-1/2 in. tall. While it should fit into typical floor joist space, check the fan dimensions to make sure.
