    Rated 2 out of 5 by Replacement Lamp Finding it almost impossible to find a replacement lamp for this fan. Beats me that it could not be designed for a standard threaded base bulb. They need to come up with a retrofit kit to change the bulb base. May 29, 2015
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Bad Quality After a few years of use there are rust inside that can been seen and some parts are broken off due to rust. Fan and recess light are on the same switch. Would not recommend this product in its current specifications, perhaps coating all of the metal parts with paint of some type of resin coating would help to improve on the product longivity. Two-in-one (fan + recess light) is an awesome design for tight space though. January 7, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a great product. I love this product. it is very quite and works great. When I turn off the shower there is no steam in the bathroom. I could not be happier. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great unit for small bathroom! My wife and I were shopping for a bathroom fan that looks good, is quiet, and keeps the bathroom dry after long showers. My bathroom requires a fan rated for 64 CFM minimum. We selected the Broan 744 with a rating of 70 CFM. The fan is quiet and the recessed installation appeals to us. Shortly after installing the unit, however, I noticed that long showers resulted in moisture on the ceiling. I went up the attic to inspect the installation and re-taped the exhaust duct to the unit for a good seal, and also re-positioned the attic insulation flat/against the top of the ceiling sheet rock to minimize condensation due to the cold air in the unheated attic and the warm bathroom. This helped alleviate moisture on the bathroom ceiling after showers. My only recommendation to readers is when determining minimum CFM required, note whether your installation is ideal per Broan instructions. If not, consider purchasing a fan that exceeds the minimum required CFM. For example, if you use a corregated duct in lieu of sheet metal, or have an additional 90 degree turn or elbow, don't hesitate to select a fan with a higher CFM. The Broan 744 has been installed for nine months and is meeting my family's needs and expectations. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Fan - So Quiet I sometimes think its off! This fan is amazing. Not only does it look much better than those ugly and huge grill type fans, but its so quiet. I seriously have to stop sometimes and stand still to hear it. The humidistat feature is fantastic as well as it comes on automatically and leaves me with worries about moisture. I would highly recommend this fan. I've had mine for a full year now and have no regrets. I'm an architect by the way, and I now use this fan on my projects if I can. November 20, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Option for Limited Space I am a master electrician who has installed many type of recess can lights and exhaust fans. This product installs with ease and works well in small ceiling spaces. Performance is very good, with low noise level. Installed Qty 2 in our lower level bath that is appprox 300 SQ FT. When opened product box it was missing a trim housing for recess can light. Contacted Broan and one was sent out right away with no issues. February 20, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by rating This is an excellent value for the money, looks great and best of all you can bareley hear the exhaust fan running. February 20, 2013

    Should I feel heat coming from the attic?

     on 744
    This unit was just installed over the showers in our bathrooms upstairs. I went to change out the bulbs (electrician didn't put in PAR 30L bulbs) and the previous bulbs (regular flood lamps) were really warm even though the light/fan had not been on for a couple of days. Any reason why this might be happening?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 744 exhaust fan/light. Our only guess would be that there is no insulation placed around and on top of the unit housing and the housing is picking up the heat from the attic.

    I purchased and installed the 744. Can I order any other baffle? I would prefer one that is smooth on the inside rather than with ridges.

    Thank you for your question on the model 744 exhaust fan/light. With the 1-1/2” thick ceiling you will not be able to use the mounting brackets to hang the 744. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.
