Give your bathroom an instant boost in heat with this Broan Two-Bulb Heater/Fan (model 164), which delivers superior performance and excellent ventilation in a compact package. It has its own control, enabling you to get extra heat in the bathroom without touching your central thermostat. And you can run the heat and vent functions individually or together, depending on your needs.
The efficient, permanently-lubricated motor and polymeric damper eliminate the metallic clatter you can get from other fans, and the 4-inch duct connectors have tapered sleeves for easy ducting. The 70 CFM fan provides excellent ventilation at a quiet 3.5 sones and will keep your bath free from steam or bathroom odors. It's suitable for use in insulated ceilings, and can be adjusted vertically after your ceiling is finished to give you a perfect installation.
The unit uses two 250-watt, BR40-size infrared bulbs (not included) for comfortable heating performance, and you can control its operation through a choice of Broan wall control models (available separately):
57W, 57V, 59W, 59V, 61W, 61V, 63W, 63V, 64W, 64V, 68W, 68V, 70TW, 71V, 72W, 72V, 269WL, 269VL, DH100W or T24H
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.
