When you want a combination of power and quiet, the Broan L150 High Capacity Ventilation Fan meets your stringent expectations.
It has a durable 20 gauge, galvanized steel housing. It uses a standard, six-inch duct connector for easy installation. It installs horizontally or vertically, perfect for whatever your ducting needs. It can be in-line ducted by adding an adapter.
The low profile, white polymer grille has a neutral style that fits in anywhere and virtually disappears. Simplicity of design doesn't mean lower quality, though. Noise level is a concern with any vent fan. This one comes in at 1.5 sones, or just about the volume of an average conversation.
It has so many options, you're sure to be satisfied. For further customization, add an electronic speed control. At that point, you'll have full control. That's a good feeling.
