  • Recessed lights are popular lighting solutions. But BROAN took it a step further by incorporating powerful ventilation in the same design. Our recessed fan lights disappear into the ceiling with other recessed lights, so they are practical decorating and air removal solutions for any room in the house. They can also be used over bathtubs and showers when connected to a GFCI protected branch circuit (PAR bulb required).

    • Multiple units can easily be used in larger rooms

    • UL Listed for use over bathtubs and showers when connected to a GFCI protected branch circuit with PAR30L or PAR30LN type bulbs
    • 6 7/8" high housing appropriate for new construction and 2" x 8" ceiling joists
    • 4" round duct connector
    • Not for use over cooking surfaces
    • Optional wall control switches available

    Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a great product. I love this product. it is very quite and works great. When I turn off the shower there is no steam in the bathroom. I could not be happier. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great unit for small bathroom! My wife and I were shopping for a bathroom fan that looks good, is quiet, and keeps the bathroom dry after long showers. My bathroom requires a fan rated for 64 CFM minimum. We selected the Broan 744 with a rating of 70 CFM. The fan is quiet and the recessed installation appeals to us. Shortly after installing the unit, however, I noticed that long showers resulted in moisture on the ceiling. I went up the attic to inspect the installation and re-taped the exhaust duct to the unit for a good seal, and also re-positioned the attic insulation flat/against the top of the ceiling sheet rock to minimize condensation due to the cold air in the unheated attic and the warm bathroom. This helped alleviate moisture on the bathroom ceiling after showers. My only recommendation to readers is when determining minimum CFM required, note whether your installation is ideal per Broan instructions. If not, consider purchasing a fan that exceeds the minimum required CFM. For example, if you use a corregated duct in lieu of sheet metal, or have an additional 90 degree turn or elbow, don't hesitate to select a fan with a higher CFM. The Broan 744 has been installed for nine months and is meeting my family's needs and expectations. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Fan - So Quiet I sometimes think its off! This fan is amazing. Not only does it look much better than those ugly and huge grill type fans, but its so quiet. I seriously have to stop sometimes and stand still to hear it. The humidistat feature is fantastic as well as it comes on automatically and leaves me with worries about moisture. I would highly recommend this fan. I've had mine for a full year now and have no regrets. I'm an architect by the way, and I now use this fan on my projects if I can. November 20, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Option for Limited Space I am a master electrician who has installed many type of recess can lights and exhaust fans. This product installs with ease and works well in small ceiling spaces. Performance is very good, with low noise level. Installed Qty 2 in our lower level bath that is appprox 300 SQ FT. When opened product box it was missing a trim housing for recess can light. Contacted Broan and one was sent out right away with no issues. February 20, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by rating This is an excellent value for the money, looks great and best of all you can bareley hear the exhaust fan running. February 20, 2013

    Wiring for full manual control of fan, not using the on/off sequence?

    Do you have a wiring diagram for full manual control of the fan? My wife does not want to have to explain how the fan works in the guest bath every time we have guests staying in there.

    From the installation manual, it looks like a 3 rocker switch with one rocker each to the orange, blue, and brown wires would do it.

    Do you have a wiring diagram online for this unit? I'm trying to figure out what gauge and quantity of wire to buy. Will a three conductor sheathed cable work? or do you recommend multiple two conductor cables?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 744SFL humidity sensing exhaust fan/fluorescent light. It does not matter if you have a single cable with enough wires in it or separate wires. If you want individual operation of the light, humidity sensor and exhaust fan override, you would need a minimum of one ground wire, one white wire and three hot power wires (and three switches).
