Rated 1 out of 5 by LCDDriver 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DAVE58 GREAT PRODUCT IT WAS A SNAP TO INSTALL

Rated 1 out of 5 by MRyles 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lapain 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by littlbob44 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?

Rated 3 out of 5 by Marty 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by russar1961 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.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by SP2024 Great Heater/ Exhaust Fan for small bathroom
We have 2 of these units in our two smaller bathrooms. They work extremely well. We had them installed during the building of our home 6 years ago. They are still functioning just fine.
In our master bath, which is considerably larger, we installed a larger version with more power. I believe it is the Broan QTX110HL. It also has a night light feature, which is nice. It also works extremely well. Our heating element just went out in that one, but we are replacing it for about $30.
Very pleased with our choice of these products. Would not want to live without them!
