Small, very small bathroom exhaust fan
I will soon be building a VERY, VERY small powder room, just 3.5'x4.5', or just under 16 sq. ft.

Code requires an exhaust fan, but I am wary against installing a 80 cfm or 100 cfm fan in there. I don't want people to feel like their going to get sucked in... or like they are standing next to an airplane getting ready to take off.

So, can anyone suggest a very small, very quiet bathroom exhaust fan for my teeny tiny powder room?

broan or Nutone or Panasonic make good fans. look for Energy Star rated, low sones and about 50CFM

I just bought one of these for a small bath remodel I'm doing. Very, very quiet. I got mine at Menard's for about $65.00.

It's the quietest one I could find, and I like the recessed light. If you are redoing the ceiling, it would be my suggestion.

Fantec and Panasonic make the quiet runs. No sound from bath since fan is mounted remotely and can service several rooms from one fan.
