  • Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet operation. We had this exhaust installed in our new home during construction. It was a first for the builder but with Broan's help, they figured it out. Since it is rafter mounted, it is exceptionally quiet. It works much better and much quieter that a hood mounted exhaust. We love it. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Buy Have had for 10 years. No problems. This is definitely the bathroom vent and light fixture you should buy if you want good function and ease of install and use. You do have to clean it once in a while - it sucks out dust. October 2, 2013

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model HD80L exhaust fan/light. It would be possible to use the HD80L in a heated garage, but 80 CFM might not be strong enough for your application.

    Would there be a problem if I wire it so that it has single switch operation

    In the wiring diagram it shows having two switches, one for the fan, and one for the light. Due to the existing wiring, I only have one switch available. Would it be problematic for the machine, if I configure it to run on one switch?

    Thank you for your question on the model HD80L exhaust fan/light. The HD80L requires the use of four inch duct work. We do not suggest using anything smaller than four inch duct.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model HD50L exhaust fan/light. Using a soft white bulb should give you the most gentle and warm lighting that you could expect in these types of units.
