Question about Panasonic Fan FV-05VFL2 WhisperFit-Lite Low Profile Ventilation Fan Light - Fan/Light/Nigh...
I have an ventilation fan in the bathroom but have been told to replace it with a Panasonic Fan FV-05VFL2 - I am not very handy how difficult is it to replace the fan.
If you are not very handy I don't think I'd tackle this project. There's going to be drywall cutting, backing to install, attic crawling, wiring, ducting to attach, proper insulating. As an electrician I've done this sort of thing in between 1 and 2 hours, depending on how smooth things go. If you find somebody you trust that's done it before who is willing do to it on the side for cash you're looking at $25-$60 for labor. Is it worth it to you?

The Panasonic fan (or fan light) can be installed from the finished side without attic access. The fan will detach from the electrical and duct connector allowing you to slide the blower housing into the ceiling hole. Then screw the flange to the ceiling. Usually we put 3/4" plywood above the rock to screw into.
As far as quality and noise Panasonic wins hands down. The only noise you will get is if the vent is restricted.

Broan has a model QTRE080R that can be installed from the room side without going into the attic/crawlspace...this is perfect for remodeling installations!
