  • 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).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great solution to the balanced ceiling This product solves the problem of balancing the elements on the ceiling of small spaces such as showers or WCs. Especially now when rainfall shower heads are becoming common.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very nice features Installed this unit right in the shower in the basement with a drop plastic tile ceiling. I vented it straight out to the outside. It turned out very nice, kicks in when the humidity level gets up there and runs until the humidity has been exhausted, then turns off. I also used the Broan 2 way switch that allows you to run the unit bypassing the auto feature. The light bulbs you can't find at the big box stores but you can find them on the web...no big deal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quietly does its thing One of the most quiet exhaust fans that I have encountered. I recently installed the Nu-Tone 744NT and was very satisfied with its ability to quietly remove moist air from my bathroom while using the shower. I have a similar Nu-Tone unit in our other bathroom that has been in use for 10+ years with no issues whatsoever.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Replacement Lamp Finding it almost impossible to find a replacement lamp for this fan. Beats me that it could not be designed for a standard threaded base bulb. They need to come up with a retrofit kit to change the bulb base.

  • What is the max number of feet the exhaust duct can run?

    Asked by: ed
    Thank you for your question on the model 744 exhaust fan/light. The 744 can use up to 29 feet straight of four inch rigid duct work without losing CFM. For every elbow you have in the line, you would need to reduce that distance by four feet.

    Can this unit be wired with 2 separate switches (1 for the light, the other for the fan), USING SEPARATE 2 WIRE WITH GROUND INSTEAD OF USING 3 WIRE?

    Can 2 separate 2 wire with ground romex wires be used instead of the specified 3 wire with ground? If so, can you provide a wiring diagram? Thank you.
    Asked by: Roscoe
    Thank you for your question on the Broan 744. Yes this unit can be wired separately using two separate switches. Please contact Technical Support directly on your wiring options.
