Any issues using 4" ducting fan with 3" existing duct pipe
Our powder rooms' fan is 16 years old and loud (its the 696ND - says its 2.5 sones but it seems much louder!). I'd like to replace it with a modern quiet fan. The existing ducting is 3", and would be difficult to change as the room is in the middle of the house.
Most of the new quiet fans (< 1.5 sones) have 4" venting.
Is there any issue using a duct reducer (4" to 3") with these fans?
FYI, It a small powder room (< 50 sq ft).
