  • 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

    After running 10-15 mins. the heater turns off. I've replaced the thermostat and after about six months it's turning off again. Is this normal operation or is the thermostat bad again?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 154 radiant ceiling heater. As long as the fan is running when the heater is turned on, this should not be normal operation. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 157 surface mounted radiant heater. The 157 has only one voltage setting (120 VAC) and one wattage setting (1250 Watts). Some of our wall heaters are convertible from 120 VAC to 240 VAC and the wattage can be changed to ½ the wattage. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.
