    Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 12, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 26, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by High quality product I can highly recommend the fan, quietly in the operation and very simple to instalate August 11, 2015
    Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. May 29, 2015
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Bad Quality After a few years of use there are rust inside that can been seen and some parts are broken off due to rust. Fan and recess light are on the same switch. Would not recommend this product in its current specifications, perhaps coating all of the metal parts with paint of some type of resin coating would help to improve on the product longivity. Two-in-one (fan + recess light) is an awesome design for tight space though. January 7, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Smart move and purchase Cannot believe how quiet it really is, and effective . August 29, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks great Compared to the square plastic bath fans, this is a home run! June 13, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by pretty quiet, quite discreet. I bought 2 of there for a bath renovation. I find most vents ugly so the main appeal for me was that it looks like a can light. It looks good, the suction is adequate (we put one near the shower (it is not moisture resistant so you can't put it IN the shower ceiling like I hoped). The other one went in the "water closet" (separate room for toilet) They are fairly quiet. I'm happy with them. April 3, 2014

    Can this unit be installed over a shower? The specs say "UL Listed for use over bathtubs or showers when connected to a GFCI circuit". It would seem to me to be installed in a shower there would need to a cover for the light so it wasn't exposed to water. Thanks.

    Wind blowing through unit

    Customer avatar
    by
    Iowaguy
    Iowa, USA
     on 744
    On cold and windy days, I can feel air blowing into the house through one of my 744 units. The other units (I have 5 of these installed) do not do this. The exterior baffle appears to be completely normal (under eave baffle with two doors, both swinging normally). Do you have any advice on other potential sources to solve this problem?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 744 exhaust fan/light. First you want to check and make sure the back draft damper on the side of the unit housing is not stuck open. Secondly we recommend having an additional back draft damper where the duct work exits the house. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    Thank you for your question on the model 744FL exhaust fan/fluorescent light. The lamp bracket assembly is hard wired and the exhaust fan motor has a plug that goes into an internal electrical receptacle.

    Hear motor running, but fan not working...?

    Customer avatar
    by
    Bob T.
    Milford, NH, USA
     on 744
    fan and light are wired independently - when fan is turned on, we hear the motor start, but the fan is not working (there is no exhaust). This issue started where the fan would not start right away, then would start after several seconds of the motor being on. But now the fan does not work at all. Is this unit repairable, or should we just replace. unit is 6 years old.
    Thanks,
