Give your bathroom an instant boost in heat with this Broan one-bulb heater (model 161). This bulb heater, which uses one 250-watt BR40 bulb (not included), gives you much-needed warmth when you need it, without touching your central thermostat. Its bulbs can be used individually when you don't need so much heat, or together when it's colder.

Why Spot Heating Makes Sense in Your Home
You hastily get ready every morning, head for work, the office, or school, just when the central heating system has finished warming the entire house. It's about as inefficient as it gets. Spot heating solves that problem. No longer will you heat an entire home when you simply need a bit of comfort in the bath or dressing room, or any other room.
Efficient Heating Element
Even the most efficient central heating systems send heat up the chimney. But Broan spot heaters deliver every bit of energy back into your home. There's no external venting, so the electricity you convert to heat is delivered directly where you want it.
Simple, Safe, and Efficient.
Permanently lubricated motors are quiet and require no maintenance. They can be operated by a built-in adjustable thermostat or an optional wall-mount controller. Heaters may be converted in the field to a choice of wattages/voltages. And for safety, heaters are thermal overload protected and the complete heater assembly conveniently removes from the housing for cleaning.
In 1932, Henry Broan developed and manufactured a kitchen fan called the Motordor Fan that provided quiet and efficient kitchen ventilation. Today, Broan-NuTone leads the industry with forward-thinking residential ventilation products, customized climate, communications and storage solutions and superior customer service. The Broan brand focuses on range hoods, ventilation fans, heater/fan/light combination units, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) fresh air systems, built-in heaters, whole-house fans, attic ventilators and trash compactors, while the NuTone brand offers door chimes, central vacuum systems, stereo intercom systems, medicine cabinets, ironing centers, ceiling fans and ventilation fans.

The bathroom is of typical size; 7 by 9 feet including the shower, and an 8 foot ceiling. If your ceilings are high, you will not want this product. You immediately feel the difference in warmth from waist to head height. You will want the lamp positioned over your chilliest spot. The heat diminishes quickly stepping side to side. It will not heat your bathroom. It is not meant to be installed in the shower, or over a tub.
Like ceiling fans, the installation is not easy, especially with low pitch roofs. Crawling around in an attic, avoiding falling between the joists, is never fun. This is not an insulated enclosure, so you will have to make provisions to hold the insulation back 3 inches. As always, installing it in new construction is far easier. If you are remodeling the room, this is the time to get one.
Install a timer switch with it. At 250 watts, you will not want to forget to turn this off. I have not touched the inner enclosure to see how hot it gets, and I am not willing to test its limits. Use it when you are there, and then TURN IT OFF.
My two regrets; first, that I was not able to install it in front of the shower. That would be ideal. Second, that I did not go with the two bulb version. I believe the difference would be significant. This is not like walking into a toasty room. The effect of the bulb is immediate, and localized. Plan accordingly.
FYI: a decision will have to be made as to what version of bulb to get. According to Osram Sylvania, the red, clear, and frosted bulbs, create the same amount of heat. However, the clear and frosted bulbs put out considerably more lumens of visible light than the red. Red is often chosen to remind people that the lamp is on.
Cons...it isn't ic rated which is a definite downside, but can be worked around.
I did find that the light really doesn't put out very much heat, which is a bummer. I can't give this product a bad review, like other people do, because the fixture functions properly and is not the cause of not producing enough heat. THE BULB on the other hand is the issue. I used a Sylvania light bulb 250w which didn't provide much heat at all. I switched to a GE 250w bulb and it does indeed produce a little more heat, not a ton, but more. So I would give the Sylvania bulb a bad review compared to the GE
Although it isn't recommended at all I ordered a 375w bulb and am going to try that.
So I give this product a good review in the sense that it works and was just as described. I don't think I would recommend this product though. I think installed another type of heat would be the way to go if you need heat that will actually have more of an effect.
1) Ideal for small bathrooms, as does not accupy any space.
2) Provides nice warmth when coming out of the shower (duh!)
3) safe to use in moist rooms.
I recommend that you make sure you install it exactly over the spot where you stand to dry yourself after showering, as this is how this item works 100%.
