  • Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent performance I was initially put off by the price but after installation it was worth it. It moves much more air than previous two units used over 20 years. For the first time a fog free mirror! May 22, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good Fan This unit would be best installed during new construction or a bathroom remodel. The hole had to be cut slightly oversize to get the the unit in place. Removable/adjustable ceiling flanges would have made the install much easier. The fan was very quiet until I connected the 4" flexible duct. It would probably be much quieter with 6" solid ducting and 45 degree bends, but my attic configuration prohibited me from using this type of configuration. I would have liked to see it accept LED bulbs instead of CFL. They last longer and use less electricity. April 6, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Meant for new construction Bought this to replace builder's garbage. I had to remove a large portion of the ceiling so this almost turned into a bathroom remodel. THIS SHOULD BE INSTALLED IN NEW CONSTRUCTION ONLY. Also, in order to use all the features of the fan significant rewiring would have been necessary. There is a limit to what I will do for a bathroom fan. March 15, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Perfect - keeps bathroom steam to a minimum and quiet . best balance of technology and efficiency March 13, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by removes humidity, but is too loud I was advised that this was a very quiet unit and paid a lot of money for this feature. I even changed the vent from a 4" to a 6" because I was told it would make it quieter, as quiet as the store sample. It did not make it quieter or even come close to the store sample, but the one good thing is that it has been removing the humidity created by the shower. March 11, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Quiet, bright light This fan wasn't easy to install since it was slightly bigger than my last fan. When installed by attaching to a joist from the side where the mounting holes are, the fan isn't supported as well as I would have liked. It may be better to buy the optional braces to support itself from 2 joists. Overall, it is much quieter than my last fan and is very bright. The bulbs seem to be a unique size, so when they are ready for replacement, hopefully they won't be difficult to locate. The night light is a nice feature. March 10, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by It is a good product, however I feel the price is high. The product has been solid for about a year now, it performs as expected. The only issue I find with the exhaust fan is that the noise level is not quite as low as I had hoped. The other thing is the price, but if the product has an lasts for a good 10 years, then maybe it will be worth it after all. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet Very quiet. Night light feature is great and generate enough light for our 100 sq ft bathroom. Standard light is very bright. If you replace a standard fan you will need to rewire an additional 12/3 wire as this one has 3 features. The existing wire will connect to the fan, the new wire will connect to the 2 lighting features. You may add another 2 buttons wall switch or replace it by a 3 buttons one like I did. In Canada these sells around 180$ so buying in USA was a real deal. This product has not been certified cUL or CSA so it does not sell in Canada. August 21, 2013

    We have our fan and light separated to different outlets so that we can dim the lights on a dimmer, and then wired the fan portion to a spring wound timer. I want to use incandescent bulbs for this. 1) CAN I? and 2) what is the maximum wattage for the bulb?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QT140LE exhaust fan/light/night light. The only bulbs recommended for the QT140LE are the 18 watt maximum, type GU24 fluorescent bulbs with a maximum overall length of 3.9”. It also uses a 4 watt maximum, type C7 incandescent night light. We do not recommend using any other type of bulbs in this unit.

    Answer: 
    Betsy, I have same issue and will probably use a lower wattage with warmer color GU24 bulb (2700K ~ incandescent) as I have a larger light already in the bathroom. I might even just just one bulb. I plan on using the vent light for winding down at night or to contrast the bright 4100K light I already have. There are GU24 to Edison Base adapters but then you'd have to find a specialty bulb short enough...not worth the trouble.

    Although they recommend incandescent C7, I use LED C7 for other bathroom night lights and they don't get hot and will last a lot longer! Note, all CFLs have poor reliability and take time to brighten.

    Answer: 
    The night light incorporated in the QT140LE requires an additional wall switch and associated wiring to function. This model features a fan, light and night light and requires 3 switches and wiring to function properly. If you need additional assistance, please contact the Broan Technical Support group at 800-637-1453.

    Answer: 
    You will need to have a separate switch with wiring in order to use the nightlight. You will also need separate switches for light and fan if you want them to run independently.

    breaker trips

    I installed this with a 3 control switch that has 20 amps with 15 amp max per switch. I turn on the fan or light and the circuit breaker trips. I turn on the night light and it doesn't trip. Can you tell me why?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QT140LE exhaust fan/light/night light. If you have access from above (attic or crawl space) the installation should not be too difficult. If you do not have access from above, you would need to tear out more ceiling than would normally be needed and patch the ceiling after installation. For further assistance please contact our Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we are unable to assist you with this request as this is not a Broan switch. You will need to contact the manufacturer of the switch for more information.
