Question

Hole size to cut in existing ceiling?

Installation in existing ceiling, not new construction.
Instructions do not include a template or mention how big a hole to cut.
I can only assume hole is as wide as bent edges on open end of housing. That is the only way housing tabs can contact bottom of joist.

Thank you for your question on the model QT90E exhaust fan. If you have access from above (an attic or crawl space) you would want to cut the hole the size of the bottom outside flanges of the unit housing. You could then drop it down through the hole and mount it so the bottom flange is even with the finished side of the ceiling. If you do not have access from above, you will need to cut the hole larger than would normally be needed and patch the ceiling after it is installed.
