Ventilating Fans Specification Version 4
A minor revision of the ENERGY STAR specification for Ventilating Fans has been finalized. As of July 24, 2018, in-line fans designed to be installed as supply fans may be certified as ENERGY STAR. Materials related to this revision process are provided below. Partners and other interested parties with questions or concerns regarding these materials or the revision process can contact Abigail Daken, EPA, at Daken.Abigail@epa.gov.

EPA updated Section 3Ab of the specification to clarify that bathroom and utility room fans, and in-line fans, with more than three speeds must be tested and meet the applicable efficacy and sounds requirements at their minimum and maximum speeds, and at a speed half-way in between those.
