How to shop for a bathroom ventilation fan?


  1. Get the right size fan for your room.
  2. Energy-star rated
  3. Need a durable, quiet motor that won’t overheat.
  4. Noise level is measured in “sones”, so less than 1 sone is quiet (0.5 or 0.3).
  5. Compare features:Do you want a led-light, movement sensor, adjustable speed, timer?
  6. Measure to see if the bracket will it fit between the rafters in the attic above your bathroom ceiling?
  7. For a 5×8 bathroom we like the basic Panasonic Whisper FV-0511 VQ1 model.
