    Does the fan need to be operational in order to have heat bulb on?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 161 single radiant heat lamp. Since the only heat from this unit is radiated from the bulb, we would not recommend installing this unit in a ceiling over eight feet tall.

    Installed in a master bathroom about 10' x 10' with 9' ceilings. I did not expect this to heat the bathroom of course, but I did expect to feel warmth when standing under it. It is not warm at all. I can feel heat if I put my hand about two feet from the bulbs. Is this what you'd expect? Thank you.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the Broan 163 bulb heater. The bulb heater is more of a radiant heat and would be more effective with an 8' ceiling. We would recommend a fan forced heater like the 100HL for a more effective heat source for this ceiling height. For further questions, please contact Technical Support at 800-637-1453.
