  • Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for larger bathrooms The 100hl is a great choice for larger bathrooms like master baths being built in a lot houses these days. The fan moves out a lot of air and the heater is really great for the winter season in Northwest Indiana. July 18, 2015
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Respected brand name but extreamly disappointed in preformance Purchased because of the name. Been in the plumbing industry for 50 years and believe this may be a poor product. Installed in the summer of 2014 and left for winter home and didn't use. Came back to the Midwest where it was chilly and after about 10 uses for showers the heat stopped, only the fan blew air. Checked resistance and element is bad. Ordered new element. May 26, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great customer service I purchased two of these when remodeling my house. I initially loved the units, but became quickly disappointed when the heat stopped blowing warm air. I went to Lowes, and inquired, they let me know I could return the units for a different product, but I didn't want to remove them from the new ceilings I installed them in and plastered... I contacted broan via the online contact form, and they QUICKLY let me know there was an issue with many of these units and they shipped me brand new heating elements. These took 5 minutes each to swap out and we are back to being happy with these units. Thank you Tammy! January 13, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Atypical exhaust fan failure after one week We have several Broan products and are usually pleased with the brand. They are carried by Lowes, Home Depot and Menards for convenient price comparison, too. We recently purchased the 100HL at Menards here in Michigan. This was installed by our contractor about 2 weeks later. During the operational checkout, the fan, heater and light operated without incident. Approximately one week later we noticed the ventilation fan was not operating. This unit is installed in our personal residence in guest bathroom i.e. seldom used. However, we did observe one instance where the fan was allowed to run over night. The installation is near the exterior wall, 4-inch galvanized duct was extended from the unit 4 feet directly to the exterior damper. No elbows were required i.e. a straight run without restriction except for the damper. Using a Fluke multi meter the voltage was measured at the fan plug connection within the unit. The meter displayed 124.8 volts AC. This matched the voltage measured at a wall receptacle in the same room. We have never had to make a warranty claim before on a Broan product, a testimony to the quality of the brand. We will update this review after filing the warranty claim and alert the user community whether or not the quality normally associated with the equipment extends to the customer service arm of the company. September 15, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Product is improved over earlier version. I'm a Builder / Contractor who has used Broan almost exclusively in our new homes and remodels for over 28 years. The model 100HL is very easy to install (if your handy), electrical connections are easily accessible thru a new metal access panel, but wiring should be left to a qualified installer ... heater on this unit requires a separate, dedicated, 20 Amp circuit. Do not try to wire into an existing circuit. VERY IMPORTANT. Instructions re: hanger bars say to "ensure noise-free mount", use screws or pliers to crimp. BETTER (and in addition to screws) use a premium quality duct tape to tape the hangar bars together where they are nailed into the ceiling joists AND tape the hanger bars to the sides of the metal housing as well. Also, use duct tape to tape the DAMPER / DUCT to the metal housing of the unit. The plastic ears on the damper / duct could easily become dislodged as you install the flexible duct OR could be disconnected in the future as you move about your attic. Lastly, the "LIGHT REFLECTOR" is an aluminum housing that holds the grill in place with an "acorn nut". This aluminum housing tends to vibrate and create a lot of noise when the fan is running. Easily corrected by wedging some duct tape between the housing and the grill. I would have rated this 5 stars, if this was addressed by the Broan engineers! February 25, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Pleased with the product for sound and light The overall quality is good. Quiet and vents well. Good light and heat. The heating element has failed after 15 months of installation. January 26, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Customer Service Heater element failed in eight months. I contacted Broan by Phone and talked to Chris. He only needed my shipping address, and sent me a complete heating unit with new fan. I am completely satisfied with their response and service. January 24, 2014
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Great features, but doesn't last This is my second fan of this model, The first one lasted only 6 months until the heat element and the fan pushing the air quit. I replaced the heat element and since the fan wasn't working either, that burned up in one use. Unfortunately, I failed to register the product. There are not many fans of this type to pick from which is why I am doing it again. December 26, 2013

    Answer: 
    Call customer service get a free replacement heater/blower unit. It is difficult to replace, but I guess easier than replacing the entire unit.

    Answer: 
    There is a heating element in the blower unit that is not functioning. I had the same experience with mine. I took it apart, but the element is not repairable. I contacted customer service and they mailed me an new blower unit. It was easy to install. It has been working for over a year now.

    Answer: 
    The housing needs to be flush with the ceiling or the tip of the screw will not come through to catch the acorn nut. If too much pressure is applied, the grille may bow and the lens will not stay in place to cover the light bulb. The housing does need to be level with the ceiling material. Feel free to call the Technical Service Department at 1-800-637-1453 with any more questions you may have.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 100HL exhaust fan/heater/light. It is possible to use all three functions at the same time, but you would not normally want to do that. If you are running the heater and exhaust fan at the same time, you would be removing the heat at the same time you would be producing it. For additional assistance with your question, please contact our Technical Support department at 800-637-1453.

    Answer: 
    Yes, I turn all on each morning while I get ready- heat to warm it up in the room, vent to take the humidity out and the light of course. I would be sure you have it on a dedicated circuit or else you might pop some breakers.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QTX100HL exhaust fan/heater/light. To remove the grille, you would need to pop out the light lens with a small flat blade screwdriver. After you remove the lens, there will be two screws at the ends of the reflector assembly that would need to be removed. This will allow the grille to come away from the ceiling.
