  • Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 26 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 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 4 out of 5 by Performs well, but wired wrong. I installed two of these units to replace light/fan units. Installation went as expected - OK, but one of the units was wired incorrectly. The white, black and blue wires were switched which caused the breaker to trip. I diagnosed the problem by doing resistance checks on the leads. Now they both work good. The heater throws out a healthy blast of heat! Another problem is that it takes a 100 watt bulb. However, 100 watt bulbs are no longer manufactured. They have been replaced with the 23 watt CFL bulbs which don't physically fit in the unit. I used a 13 watt CFL bulb which is not as bright as a 100 watt bulb. October 8, 2013
    Rated 4 out of 5 Bathroom Addition product worked really good for a couple of weeks. summer was here and just thought i would check to see if the heater worked. sending new part for free because still under warrenty.Will see how this one works. August 30, 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.

    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.
