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.

So, while I had high expectation when I chose this product, it still works at warming the air some so I don't shiver when getting out of the shower.
I would still have bought this again.
Oh...a point off for the install. I installed this in my first floor bath (where the bedroom is on the second floor). I had a hell of a time installing this...basically I had to make the opening fit the entire width of the unit, and do some dryway work after. I imagine the install would go alot easier if your either do NOT have a ceiling installed yet....or are going through an attic.
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.
