I have a small bathroom (50 sq feet) in my 1920's Craftsman Bungalow - the existing fan is noisy and and as a result, my wife refuses to use it...the result is me repainting my bathroom beadboard ceiling every 3 years as the paint cracks from the excess humidity. The existing fan vents up into the attic crawlspace and out via one of the gable-ends (~15' run through the attic).

I'm hoping someone can advise me on a replacement fan that will be quiet and efficient so I can convince her to start using it when she takes a shower.

Thanks for any advice you can offer.
