  • Rated 4 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by wiring diagrams are VERY POOR You need to provide a schematic diagram for wiring. The dumbed down illustrations that are provided are substandard. If you just told us what color wire went which which function, that would be enough. But instead you list the wire color with a black/white coversion chart - but no funtion information with it. I little bit more information please. December 15, 2013
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Combo Fan & Heater Replaces Space Heater & Exhaust Fan The average rating on "ease of installation" does indicate any fault of the 164. Although the installation steps are simply stated, significant effort is necessary to complete ..The heat lamps are controlled by a timer switch without an "always on" position as a safety precaution. So far the unit performs well, as it has only been in use for a few weeks. I would prefer a schematic type diagram for wiring instructions.Ooverall I am pleased with the Broan 164 . November 21, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by A excellant product My objective was to be able to heat the Bathroom without heating the whole house ar waiting for the Furnace to heat the house. After researching both Broan and other makes I selected the Broan 164. It gets the job done and helps to hold down the utilities expenses. I highly recommend the Broan 164 March 3, 2013

    I wish to wire this unit to a timer switch with Black, Red, White, and Ground connection wires. The timer will control the unit - all on or all off. How should that work, as it appears to be the only option not addressed in the Rosetta Stone like wiring diagrams

    this website, and your packaging, downplay this fact. It is a huge problem with these products, and limits their utility and applicability to an obvious common preference, as illustrated by your own picture.

    How about cleaning this mess up?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 164 dual radiant heat lamp/exhaust fan. There are no heaters on the market that UL has approved for over a tub of shower. We do not know of any pictures of this unit over a tub or shower, but will examine the web site for any of these possible pictures.

    I am replacing my 28-year old Broan 164-AC and have purchased the Model 164. Will this work? It is a two-bulb hearter/fan but can I put a regular light bulb in one side?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 164 two bulb radiant heat lamp/exhaust fan. The difference between the 164AC and the current unit would be the revision of the product. The current version parts will not work in your version. You can place a heat bulb in one socket and a regular bulb in the second socket. If replacing the unit completely, the housing will still be the same size and would be an appropriate replacement. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    I'm considering the purchase of the Model 164, but I need something quieter than 3.5 sones. Do you sell a quieter fan/blower unit for this product?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 164 dual radiant bulb heater/exhaust fan. The only parts available for the 164 would be the original replacement parts. There would not be a quieter fan assembly for it.
