                          I installed this in an attic crawl space above my kitchen and use it to exhaust a custom under-cabinet range hood. Power is sufficient for my small kitchen and not too noisy. There is a slight electrical hum when running it at lower speeds. I did find it a bit difficult to clamp the duct to this unit; just not quite enough of a lip/flange. The solid mounting bracket that is included and some additional foil HVAC tape addressed this challenge. All in all, I'm very satisfied with my purchase and am enjoying cooking without stinking up the whole house.

                          installed in atic to exaust out retro range hood. It gave the old hood the new power of 300 plus CFMs and is quiet. You can hear the air moving but not the motor. It is desired in our case to hear something so you know it is on and pull air out of the house so that it will be turned off when not needed and there is not unneeded loss of heating and cooling

                            I'd like to know how loud the fan is. Why doesn't the manufacturer list sone value? Also, can the fan be located close to a stove?

                              It's loud, even when mounted. I wish I'd bought something else, it's too loud for residential use.

                              It’s quiet. Much quieter than the typical range exhaust fan. Guess the real issue is where will it be installed?

                              Hi there,
                              I once used the FG 4 and it was noisy.
                              The FR 6 might be better which is plastic. You might also want to use a
                              speed controller with it to slow it down to an acceptable noise level.
                              Hope this helps

                              A:

                              I installed this fan to pull heat off my wood stove and move the warm
                              air through duct work to the basement of my house. The fan is fairly
                              loud at both the suction (stove) and exhaust ends of the duct. The fan
                              itself though is fairly quiet. Its annoying enough that am considering
                              some sort of baffle system. I recall seeing "mufflers" but they were pricy.
                              If I had it to do over, I would probably look for a squirrel cage type
                              blower fan.

                              I installed this for a remodel customer and located it in the attic above the kitchen. From memory I would say the fan motor is very quiet. The sound of the air moving through the duct is what is heard, but if you are actually moving air, that will happen with any fan. I don’t think it would matter much if the fan is closer to the stove. I would recommend not to use a flex duct but a rigid duct where ever you can. flex duct will slow the air down and the semi rigid flex duct with small ridges in it will not only slow down air, but add to the noise of air moving (like the way a A/C return will if you close it most of the way. Also the less turns the better. Every turn is counted as several extra(less) feet of how far you can duct out.

                              It can be used in such an application, however keep in mind that it has a maximum temperature of 140 degrees, so it is not suitable for venting combustion exhaust. The unit is compatible with galvanized stove pipe.
