  • Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by good product, meet expections Although I had the unit installed by a contractor, it has performed very well, very quiet. It has been very reliable and a good product for the price. I would highly recommend it. July 16, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to install, Quite I replaced a 20 year old 50 CFM fan with a propeller with this Broan, which has a squirrel cage fan. It takes all of the moisture out of the bathroom and does so quietly. Except for getting into the attic, it is an easy install. February 21, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Broan 784 Bought two to replace old noisy fans. These are quiet and efficient fans that are a step up from the old ones and fit the original openings. August 24, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This product surprised. I chose this product because the style fit the cavity in the ceiling just right. Noise level and energy star were bonus. Gord Canada September 5, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by The hard part was to get to the location under the roof. After that the installation was not difficult. Our mirror in the bathroom doesn't fog up any more, so that's nice. It is much quieter than the one that came with the house. May 26, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Replacement Fans Installed this model as an upgrade and to reduce noise and increase air flow. Works well and Installed 1 in each Bathroom. No problems with cut-out increases / wiring. March 30, 2014

    Do you have to have attic access to install this as a replacement?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 784 exhaust fan. It would be much easier to have access from the attic to install the 784. If you do not have attic access you will need to cut a larger hole than would normally be necessary and patch the ceiling after the installation. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    I have this fan installed in my bath room and am happy with its performance. I would like to add a light to the fan instead of replacing the whole unit.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 784 exhaust fan. There is no option available for adding a light to the 784 exhaust fan. If you need a light you would need to completely remove the 784 from the ceiling and install a different model.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 784 exhaust fan. Using four inch rigid duct work you can run the duct 23 feet straight without losing CFM. You would need to reduce that length by four feet for every elbow installed.
