  • Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
    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
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Heater failed in less than a year I've got four of these units in my house and I'm not pleased that the heater went out on one when it was turned on for the first time this season. It's only been used for maybe a total of 30 minutes since it was installed. To make matters worse, it looks like the fuse can not be reset or easily replaced. Poor engineering if you ask me. A reset switch or the use of a standard fuse that is easily replaced would make for a much better design. I'm now concerned that the other 3 units I've got will fail soon as well. December 8, 2013
    Rated 4 out of 5 by this product has it all Ive had this for almost a year the instructions were easy to read had a pro install the wiring with a dedicated line at the fuse panel heater ran great when first installed but quit when winter came I started noticing the heater fan would be quite when first turned on but would start getting loud when warmed up took out the heater/blower motor checked resistance with volt ohm meter and found that the diode has blown contacts were rusted i only run either the exhaust fan or heater never together hope that the new element will be an improvement fingers crossed. December 26, 2013
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Heating element goes out a lot Heating element went out almost immediately, had to return to store. Then the elemet went out again, but construction is closed up so now I have to tear up the ceiling to get it out and return it again. This is very dissapointing and a lot of re-work. I should have read the other reviews, as I see others have had problems too. October 22, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Bathroom Heater... Heat unit went out after 2 years,, easily replaced We have had this for over 2 years. I am a bit of a handy person, so I installed the unit and had it professionally wired. ( I suggest get a professional to wire ) After 2 winters the Heater went out. Called Broan ...they were so nice. Sent replacement ...and we recieved it within 3 days. It was very very easy to install. We did not need to get back up in the attic, since it was designed properly. Replaced heater unit . ( 2 Screws ...installed from underneath the unit ) We will look for there products in the future .. GOOD JOB BROAN December 5, 2013

    Ele. dia. shows 4 connections to be made at the unit [plus grounds]. My unit came with only blue, white, black wires with ends ready for conn. The red wires are pre connected in the harness. How do I connect a wire for the switch for the heater? Do I need to modify the installed harness/tie into the installed harness by removing installed cap?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 100HL exhaust fan/heater/light. The 100HL will come with two white, one red, one black and one blue wire. Please make sure you are connecting the wires from the inside of the unit instead of trying to fish the wires from the attic side of the unit. If you still have problems or have wires missing, please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    What can happen if you don't use a dedicated circuit? I had this installed today and the ac cooling is not working. It blows air but not cool air. We had a different electrician installed one in the other bathroom and he did ran a cable to the breaker and didn't have any problem with the a.c.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 100HL exhaust fan/heater/light. The 100HL needs to be on a dedicated circuit, otherwise it can trip the circuit breaker from drawing too much current. There is no AC cooling on this model. It will exhaust air from the bathroom, or blow hot air into the room to warm it up before a shower.

    Answer: 
    The heating element in the fan unit has probably failed. Contact Broan Service for advice- maybe even a free replacement.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 730 exhaust fan/heater/light. There is a thermal protector that will trip if the internal temperature gets too hot. If this trips, it will cut power from the heater coil and heater motor. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 100HL exhaust fan/heater/light. At the present time the only bulb we can recommend using in the 100HL is the bulb listed in the installation instructions. The 100HL calls for a 100 watt maximum, A19 type incandescent bulb.
