    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question. The "hanger" bars which you speak of, are used primarily in new construction before any drywall is up. If you are dealing with existing construction, attic access is recommended and the housing can be secured to a joist by fastening through the side(s) of the housing, assuming that a joist is in place. If there is no joist on either side, you may need to frame the in the opening. If you need further information, please contact the Technical Support group at 800-637-1543.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 657 exhaust fan/light. The only bulb we can recommend placing in the 657 is the bulb listed in the installation instructions and spec sheet. The 657 requires a 100 watt maximum incandescent bulb.

    I have the model 657 in a bathroom of a house I recently purchased, but don't see any outside vet to push out air - can you tell me where the air from the bathroom would flow to?

    Thank you!

    Answers

    Answer: 
    The exhaust air from the 657 should be vented to the outside. If a roof/wall cap is not visible, it may be vented through an inconspicuous eave vent or perhaps it is simply going into your attic, which is not a good situation.

    Thank you for your question on the model 696 exhaust fan/light. We would only require that it be outside the tub or shower footprint.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    In order to clean the model 696, the grille, lens, bulb and reflector should be removed. This will expose the fan and heat units. In most cases, a gentle cleaning, with a vacuum will be adequate. If this is not enough, both the fan and heat assemblies can be removed and taken down from the unit. Please see the detailed cleaning instructions for both, in the installation instructions, which are available on our website.
