    Rated 3 out of 5 by Loud and poor heat out put It's an average unit. It is louder than we thought, plus the heater doesn't put out like we hoped either. We have the same unit our smaller kid bathroom and still doesn't put out heat like we thought. Only had it for 2 months, so I can not comment on long life. If sound and heat is important, I would not suggest this model. December 18, 2013
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Heating element failed the first one of these units i bought lasted over 5 years before the heating element quit working, does nothing when the switch is flicked. for the price, i bought en entire second unit, believing that if one component went after 5 years, the rest couldnt be far behind. well, 18 months in and the heater went on the new one. Broan used to offer a 5 year warranty on this, but i've discovered that theyve since changed it to a 1 year. hmmmm and thew new one died after a year and a half, coincidence? October 18, 2013
    Rated 3 out of 5 by The 655 is a mid level unit The 655 works fine but the light socket failed within 1.5 years and the light lens has yellowed from a 100W bulb during normal residential use. As a specifier of fans in the HVAC industry I give it a 5 out of 10 for short light socket life. September 10, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Heater/ Exhaust Fan for small bathroom We have 2 of these units in our two smaller bathrooms. They work extremely well. We had them installed during the building of our home 6 years ago. They are still functioning just fine. In our master bath, which is considerably larger, we installed a larger version with more power. I believe it is the Broan QTX110HL. It also has a night light feature, which is nice. It also works extremely well. Our heating element just went out in that one, but we are replacing it for about $30. Very pleased with our choice of these products. Would not want to live without them! May 4, 2013
    Rated 4 out of 5 by really warms up my bathroom! It works great, is so nice to have extra warmth in the bathroom in the winter! The only negative is that it's rather noisy. February 22, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is a good buy for the price. The Broan 655 is a direct replacement for a Broan 655 that was in use for more than twenty years. All present day ventilators would not fit the present opening. I checked with Broan online and was surprised that the model was still available although not in the box stores. Installation was a direct replacement. The fan isn't the quietest when running but really does a great job removing the moisture from the shower in my small bathroom. When the shower is running it isn't noticeable. No issues with unit since installation. February 20, 2013
    Rated 4 out of 5 by I have two of these fans I replaced both of the fans in my upstairs bathrooms with Broan 655 heat/light/fan and I am pleased. These are a little noisy but most fans are. The price was very reasonable and the quality is great. February 20, 2013
    Rated 3 out of 5 by .This product is a good value for the money Would be nice to have a night lite feature. Regular Light bulb expired in 2 months-probably no ventilation around it February 20, 2013

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 655 exhaust fan/heater/light. After removing the light lens, you need to remove the nut in the top of the reflector assembly to finish removing the grille. You will then see two screws holding the heater assembly inside the housing. You will need to remove them to take the heater assembly out of the housing. There are installation instructions available on our web site for download or you can contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 655 exhaust fan/heater/light. If you are getting blown in insulation through unused holes in the 655 housing, you can cover the holes with duct tape from the attic side of the unit housing.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 655 exhaust fan/heater/light. If you are trying to replace the 655 with another model, from the bathroom side, you will need to tear out more of the ceiling than would normally be necessary and patch the ceiling after the installation. It would be much easier from the attic side. Replacement parts are available and you can reuse your existing 655 housing. Contact the Technical Support Department with questions at 800-637-1453.
