  • Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Way too loud No way this is 2.5 sones. Both exhaust and heater fans are extremely loud. Maybe I got a defective unit. Will try to work with it but if it can't be made A LOT quieter, it's going back. Not a happy camper right now. September 29, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by good value for the price It was a little harder to install because we were replacing an old fan, so I had to do a lot of rewiring and drywalling. October 16, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT PRODUCT IT WAS A SNAP TO INSTALL THIS WAS A REPLACEMENT FOR AN EXISTING UNIT THAT HAD GOT TIRED, THE INSTALLATION WAS EASY AND WENT IN WITHOUT A PROBLEM. July 18, 2015
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Vent Review I bought the combination Light/Vent/Heater rated at 2.5 sones and 50 CFM for a small Bathroom. This was part of a re-model still ongoing. Having several mounting options was a plus considering the small space in the attic to make the install. The product did not have an acorn nut which was a main fastener in the bulb and lens assembly, this cost me a trip to a home improvement center. I am disappointed with how loud the unit is for a 2.5 sones rating, it sounds more like 5 or 6 to me. I would definitely not buy this brand again in the future. February 27, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Loud and poor heat out put It's an average unit. It is louder than we thought, plus the heater doesn't put out like we hoped either. We have the same unit our smaller kid bathroom and still doesn't put out heat like we thought. Only had it for 2 months, so I can not comment on long life. If sound and heat is important, I would not suggest this model. December 18, 2013
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect replacement for older Braun fan The fan was easily installed in the same location without any further cutting of the ceiling and worked perfectly upon completion. The fan is much quieter than the older fan that was replaced and I was quite pleased with the product and the expediency in which it was delivered and also the price. Thanks, Russ..... September 4, 2013
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Heating element failed the first one of these units i bought lasted over 5 years before the heating element quit working, does nothing when the switch is flicked. for the price, i bought en entire second unit, believing that if one component went after 5 years, the rest couldnt be far behind. well, 18 months in and the heater went on the new one. Broan used to offer a 5 year warranty on this, but i've discovered that theyve since changed it to a 1 year. hmmmm and thew new one died after a year and a half, coincidence? October 18, 2013
    Rated 3 out of 5 by The 655 is a mid level unit The 655 works fine but the light socket failed within 1.5 years and the light lens has yellowed from a 100W bulb during normal residential use. As a specifier of fans in the HVAC industry I give it a 5 out of 10 for short light socket life. September 10, 2013

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 659 exhaust fan/heater/light. The grille that comes with the unit is the only one available. We do not have a larger grille for it. You will need to patch the ceiling.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 655 exhaust fan/heater/light. The 655 is probably installed with mounting brackets and should not be difficult to remove if you have access from above (an attic or crawl space). If you do not have access from above you would probably need to tear out some of the ceiling dry wall to get to the unit housing. The 655 installation instructions are available for download from our web site and will show you how the unit is installed. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 655 exhaust fan/heater/light. The only motor available for the 655 would be the original replacement motor. There is no option for a higher CFM motor. If you need more CFM, you will need to totally remove the 655 from the ceiling and install a different model.
