Replace the Model AE80BF-A in the same space?
Hi, can this AE80BL easily replace the AE80BF-A model (fan only) in the same space? It appears that the fan version can be removed and the fan with light version can be place in the same mounting brackets use fro the fan only model.
Thank you for your question on the Broan AE80BL. The housing for the two units are the same but the electric hookup is different. The wiring plate for the light on the AE80BL has its own plug. If you have further questions please contact our Technical Support directly at 800-637-1453.

Light circuit and wattage?
Does this model have a separate circuit for the overhead light so the fan and light can be switched separately? OR do they come on simultaneously with one switch? And, what is the comparable incandescent light wattage of the LED light? Thanks!
Thank you for your question regarding the AE80BL. This unit can be wired so the fan and light operate on separate switches. You will need to have 2 hot wires running from your switch to the fan in order to operate separately. This unit uses an 11 watt LED light, which is equivalent to a 75 watt incandescent bulb. However, with a 3000K light color, it often appears brighter than a 75 watt incandescent bulb.
