Product Description

Size: 2-Bulb

Product Description

Bulb heaters provide silent warmth in a compact package. Perfect for use as additional spot heating in a larger bathroom so you can locate it wherever you need a little instant warmth.

Amazon.com

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.

B000K2EG1C-162-main
Two-bulb heater bath fan (view larger).

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.

About Broan-NuTone

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.

Despite what many here have claimed this product is not the same unit as the older versions. You can not simply switch fans, for example. The old units had two screws holding the blower unit in place, one on the top of the housing and one on the side beneath the blower itself. The new one has them both on the side, meaning you can not take the new one out and install it into your old fixture. Orientation of the external components has changed as well, the vent discharge chute faces a different direction and the electrical hookup is in a different location. If your wiring doesn't have a lot of slack, or if rigid vent pipe was used you will have to replace the wiring or the vent pipe, or both. Additionally, while the same approximate width, the new unit is well over an inch longer than the older units, requiring additional cutting of the ceiling if the unit is replacing an old one.

That being said, the unit works as described. Installation, while not easy, is not overly difficult. If you have access to the space above the room where the unit is being installed you can complete a new installation with no need for drywall or plaster repair. The fan is fairly quiet once installed, about what I'd expect from a unit in this price range. It can be wired in numerous ways to give complete control over the individual lights and the fan, and by installing different bulbs you can use it as a light, a heater, or both.

Two things to note:
1. There is no template provided, you will have to make your own to more easily facilitate marking the ceiling where you need to cut. I recommend drilling a small hole in the ceiling (from the attic above), centered between the joists, then centering your own template on that mark.
2.

This item has two 250W sockets and a fan, which can be switched in any configuration. I have the fan on one switch and the bulbs on separate switches wired in series with manual timers. This allows me to control the lights (infrared/infrared or infrared/incandescent)with a timer to ensure they do not remain on if I forget. The manual switch allows me to turn off the lights if the timer is still running. The unit works great and was easy to install. It requires more than average sophistication to understand the instructions. Also, although it seems to work well, the unit arrived slightly bent due to poor packaging. One feature I liked a lot is that the fan can be removed for cleaning or replacement through the cover. I can't testify as to how it will hold up; however, it works as advertised for now. Shipping was fast and I consider it a good buy, especially considering I was not able to find many IR units for bathrooms.

This unit is compact yet provides decent ventilation and heat. The wiring allows you to put the fan and the heat lamp on separate switches. The fan is reasonably quiet and will keep the mirrors from fogging up... unless you take 180-degree showers. With a 250-watt bulb the heat lamp helps to warm up the room although it is not as fast as you might think. Overall a good fixture that is relatively easy to install.

OK, the old one was identical, I installed it 20 years ago. It still works, just a bit noisy, but I found I could replace it entirely for less than a new motor/fan. I think I have replaced bulbs once during the time. Same timer switch, too. There aren't many products out there that work 20+ years with only minor cleaning/oil, so I got another one. Simple installation; this one I'll exchange, re-caulk, and be back in business. Save yourself trouble; use non-flexible duct that vents outside from the very start. Shipping was free and fast. I'd certainly buy from them again.

I was using a 1500W ceramic heater to heat our bathroom. I'd turn it on about a half hour before I wanted to take a shower but would often get delayed or forget and it'd run for hours. Now I turn on the Broan heater as I enter to shave or take my shower and turn it off when I am finished. 500w for 25 minutes is much cheaper than 1500w for 1-3 hours.

I have each bulb and the vent fan on separate switches so I can control what runs. 500w directly overhead is very efficient and I suspect will be overkill in warmer seasons. It definitely knocks the chill off the room.

I especially like that it has 2 heat sensors, either of which will turn on the fan if necessary to ensure the enclosure doesn't overheat if I'm only using the heat lamps.

Installation was very easy with adequate adjustments to make everything fit and look great. The wiring illustrations were clear for the various optional configurations.

This fan/light/heater combo works fine - I put a regular BR40 bulb in one side, an infrared heating bulb in the other and a three-toggle switch so I can have light/heat/fan all separate.

THE PROBLEM is: The wires are SUPER short. Once you unbolt the side of the little junction box, the multiple wires coming out are about 2" long. If you're retrofitting this in an attic (like I just did), plan to spend some time cracking your sternum (and getting a neck workout) as you lay across the ceiling joists, trying your darndest to connect your stiff 14 gauge wire to the shorty-short short tails they left - c'mon Broan - a guy could sure use a couple more inches!
:)
They also don't tell you the cutout size for the ceiling hole: 14 3/8" x 8 1/2" in case you're wondering.
The wiring diagram is clear and the packaging is fine.

The fan's pretty loud, but it's good for privacy and 70cfm is plenty for most bathrooms (that aren't in McMansions). It works.

I'd buy it again, but the second time around I would pull the new romex down through the hole, do all the wiring in the bathroom on a portable table, with lots of light, space, a beer, etc and then push it all up through the hole & just coil up the extra wire in the attic.
