  • Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by performs well and is a good value for the price. Original Thermador unit lasted 30 years. When it died I replaced it with a Broan unit which was disappointing in that it failed within just a year or so. I was hesitant to try another Broan unit, but the big box store salesman reported good results from his customers so I took a chance. I am happy to report that this unit was quick and easy to install, is performing well and reliably. It has exceeded my expectations and I am happy to recommend it to anyone in need of an electric bathroom heater. It is, in my opinion, a very good value. h g March 10, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Affordable but wonder about longevity Product exactly replaced the one I had. I am concerned about quality of these heaters. The Broan heater I replaced was just a few years old. Nutone bathroom heaters used to last 25+ years (based on experience with my parent's house built in 1963) - not any more. August 25, 2013

    Does the 154 open coil model get to temperature quicker than the 157 solid element model? If so, how much time difference?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 154 and 157 heaters. The 154 has a wire element heater which will give you a more directed heat. Typically this unit is used in a bathroom where you are looking for warmth when you step out of the shower. The 157 has a radiant heater. This heater will give you a more balanced heat in all directions and warm up the entire room easier.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the radiant ceiling heaters. We make the two different types of heater elements simply because of consumer requests. They will both do the same job but some people just prefer one over the other.
