    Rated 4 out of 5 by Works well as a heated fan If you intend to heat a room, this is probably not the product you want. Not enough power unless its a very small room. Mine is installed about the wife's sink and provides a nice warm air draft during mirror time. Installed it on a 15 minute timer for automatic shutoff. Ran daily for 5 years before the heating element burned out. Ordering and replacing element and the safety breaker was relatively simple. May 20, 2015
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Doesn't Put Out Much Heat We have this heater installed in a very small bathroom and it barely warms the room. The heat does not get pushed down but seems to stay at the ceiling. On top of that, it is now going off after only about 10 minutes and we have had it for only a little more than 2 years with limited use. I would not recommend it. December 16, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by I had one just like this before that lasted 25 yrs. Since we are remodeling the bathroom, decided to replace since the original was old. Hopefully this heater will also last 25 years. Love your company. September 25, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great We bought 2 Broan radiant ceiling heaters to replace old units. The new ones look great and warm the bathrooms quickly. February 24, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by performs well and is a good value for the price. Original Thermador unit lasted 30 years. When it died I replaced it with a Broan unit which was disappointing in that it failed within just a year or so. I was hesitant to try another Broan unit, but the big box store salesman reported good results from his customers so I took a chance. I am happy to report that this unit was quick and easy to install, is performing well and reliably. It has exceeded my expectations and I am happy to recommend it to anyone in need of an electric bathroom heater. It is, in my opinion, a very good value. h g March 10, 2014
    Rated 1 out of 5 by mistake to buy this radiant heater It only worked for a day after I had an electrician install it. Now it will cost more money to have another one installed. I would not recommend this product to anyone. October 1, 2013
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Affordable but wonder about longevity Product exactly replaced the one I had. I am concerned about quality of these heaters. The Broan heater I replaced was just a few years old. Nutone bathroom heaters used to last 25+ years (based on experience with my parent's house built in 1963) - not any more. August 25, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Sure to Last Quality item for a great price. Living in the Southwest, this is sure to last for many, many years. April 29, 2011

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 157 surface mounted radiant ceiling heater. The 157 has a one shot thermal protector located with the heating coil. If the inside of the housing gets too hot, it will open and disconnect power to the heating coil and motor. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    Thank you for your question on the model 157 radiant heater. The motor should blow down instead of pulling up. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 154 surface mounted radiant ceiling heater. There is a thermal protector that is part of the heating coil. It is a one shot device and cannot be reset. The heating assembly (part number 75075-00) would need to be replaced. You can get this part through the “Shop for Parts” link at the top of our web site page or from the Customer Service Department at 800-558-1711.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 157 surface mounted radiant ceiling heater. Although the 157 does have a fan to help keep the housing cooled down, it is generally used for heat when you stand directly underneath it. Over time this heater would help to heat the room, but it would be a slow process for a 400 square foot room. As with all of our heaters, it is intended to provide supplemental heat and not to take the place of a home’s main heat source. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.
