    To learn more about this revolutionary new product and how you can install it faster in new construction and retrofits, CLICK HERE.

    BROAN ULTRA™ Series Fans deliver everything you wished for in a bath fan – premium ventilation to help reduce airborne pollutants, extremely quiet operation, energy efficiency, consistent power and most impressively, the fastest, easiest, most universal installation available. These fans are ideal for both spot ventilation in humid bathrooms, as well as continuous ventilation to meet various building codes and Green Building standards around the United States.

    • 50 CFM reduces humidity to quickly eliminate fogged mirrors and manage moisture in bathrooms up to 45 square feet, so your vision will always be clear and your surroundings will always be comfortable
    • ULTRASilent™ with QStream™ Sound Technology results in operation at less than 0.3 Sones – the quietest sound rating attainable -- for an environment that is so quiet, you’ll likely forget the fan is on
    • ULTRALucent™ Lighting Technology provides 36 watt lights (two 18-watt bulbs included) delivering the brightness (measured in lumens) of models previously requiring 60 watts of CFL output – You get the best of both worlds; clear, even lighting with no hot spots and smaller energy bills
    • ULTRAQuick™ Installation Technology uses an exclusive telescoping mounting frame with pre-installed screws, snap-in housing, snap-in blower and an inside-out mounting duct connector that are the fastest, easiest, most universal installation
    • Retrofit installations can be done entirely from the room-side – no attic access required. This means a faster, easier installation so you can move on to something else
    • Unique telescoping mounting frame can be placed and fastened through drywall hole because it expands from 14” to 24” and fits any type of joist, I-Joist or truss construction for a “no guesswork” installation to make the work fast and easy
    • Snap-in housing and blower further simplify installation since you can hear – and feel – when they are properly seated. Easy-to-position carriage allows housing location adjustment between joists so you can control the correct ceiling placement
    • ULTRASmart™ DC Motor & Control Technology provides energy efficiency almost 10 times greater than ENERGY STAR® requirements and maintains rated power (CFM) in nearly every installation. You have confidence you’re getting the expected performance and won’t even notice the fan usage on your utility bill
    • UL Listed for use over tubs and showers with a GFCI circuit; so you can capture the steam before it spreads throughout the room by locating your fan exactly where you need it the most
    • Compatible with Radiation Damper RDFU which helps prevent flame and heat from spreading to other areas in multi-level buildings. In some cases an accessory wire jumper kit is required. This kit (model RDJUMPU) provides the additional lighting and sensing wire length necessary to bypass the damper
    • Can be used to comply with ASHRAE 62.2 and CALGreen

    Rated 5 out of 5 by keeps the mirror clean! this fan is the first one that can keep the mirror from fogging up in my bathroom October 16, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice and quiet This fan is nice and quiet, easy to install. The only problem i have is with the back flow flap make noise when it is windy outside, even with rain cap with damper. February 6, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Everything was going great until... I can't figure out how to get the grille to sit flat against the ceiling on its own. It will if I push slightly upward against the grille. The mounting frame and blower assembly are mounted correctly and securely. The springs are engaged properly. It's almost as if the grille is too heavy for the springs. Now I need to figure out how to make this work. December 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to install, translucent lighting is great, very economical to operate. The light was very easy to install. The translucent lens for light is great. The only negative is the noise level. It is not as quiet as advertised. There is considerable turbulence. Made all the adjustments that are possible but still not as quiet as I thought it should be. Replacement of damaged part was done easily and quickly. This is a very good bath light. I would purchase it again. March 14, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Broan XB110L This product works great. I really liked the new bracket that does not require attic access. The six inch duct requirement would not work for my application so I had to buy a four inch reducer. The fan is so quiet we had to install a timer because we forget to shut it off. March 11, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Fan - but some cheaply made parts fan noise - quiet Good lighting For the price paid, the 3 rocker switch should have been included. installation - a little difficult for a remodel. Baffle plate that prevents indoor air from escaping - cheap plastic pins that connect plate to duct. One broke as soon as I pushed into the connector, Very poor quality on this part. March 5, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by It's great What a great fan light combo. You literally can't hear the fan running, an ideal fan light combo for above your shower or bath.. Installation is quick and simple. I highly recommend this product. December 25, 2012

    Thank you for your question on your Broan ventilation fan with light. If you remove the light lens and cover and look inside the housing, you should find the UL label. You will also find the model number inside the housing. We can forward you the specification sheet for this unit once we know what model number it is. Please contact our Technical Support department directly at 800-637-1453. Thanks.

    we have the 679 (12 years old) in an enclosed toilet stall that is 3.5X5.5X9. we would like to put in a much quieter fan and light. Do we have to totally remove the old to install the new or can the old box be used? If That is not a possibility can you recommend another very quiet light and fan?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model XB80L and model 679 exhaust fan/lights. The only parts available for use in the 679 housing are the original replacement parts. If you need a quieter fan, you will have to totally remove the 679 from the ceiling and install a new unit.

    Can I wire the unit to the existing fan and light switch or do I have to buy the light night light switch to go with it?

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model XB110L exhaust fan/light/night light. If you currently have two switches on the wall with the associated wiring for a fan and light, you can use that with the XB110L. You can either have independent operation of the fan and light and just not use the night light or wire the fan and light together on one switch and wire the night light to the second switch. That way the fan and light will work together and the night light will work individually. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model XB80L exhaust fan/light/night light. As long as you are using four inch rigid duct work and the length of duct is no longer than 23 feet straight (subtracting four feet for every elbow), you would have very little difference in performance. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance. The specification sheet on our website shows the air performance ratings for both 6" and 4" ducting.

    Installed this fan in February of 2015. Periodically the fan will start, run for a few minutes then shut down. Turn off power, then back on and it seems to work fine.
