    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

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 744SFL humidity sensing exhaust fan/light. To have the humidity sensor available at all times as well as independent operation of the light and exhaust fan override, you would need three switches and the associated wiring. To have the humidity sensor available at all times and independent operation of the light, you would need two switches. The installation instructions are available for download on our web site or you can contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    Condensation from my shower fan is ruining the ceiling

    Customer avatar
    by
    ManWithWetCeiling
    Florida
     on 744
    Condensation from my shower fan is ruining the ceiling. There is so much water above my shower that the paint is peeling off the ceiling. The contractor who created the bathroom has inspected the fan and says condensation from the 744 is causing the problem. He initially removed the insulation from around the unit but that didn't help. He says he installs these fans all the time and has never had this issue. The condensation tends to happen on cold days (cold for Florida 40 degrees). The fan has its own attic vent directly upwards and out the roof. My attic tends to be the same temperature as the outside air.
    How is the warm moist air from the shower supposed to make it past the cold metal of the unit without condensing?

    Any help is appreciated before my ceiling caves in.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 744 exhaust fan/light. When this unit is installed with four inch rigid duct work, it will handle a room of approximately 65 square feet with an eight foot ceiling. We recommend that you insulate around and on top of the unit housing (up to an R40 value), as well as around the duct work. It is also a good idea to have a roof cap with a back draft damper. The fan should run for the duration of the shower and for 15 – 20 minutes after the shower is done. These things should correct your problem.

    Fan starts slow and then runs OK

    Customer avatar

    Daver

     on 744
    This unit was installed about 5 years ago. Recently, the fan starts very slow. After about 3-5 minutes, it gets up to normal speed. Thinking that the fan may have built up dust and lint, I cleaned all of the dust out of the main portion but was not able to clean the fan blades. What is the cause of a slow starting fan? If the motor needs to be removed or replaced, how can that be done?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 744SFL humidity sensing exhaust fan/fluorescent light. There is no option for a lens to be installed over the bulb in the 744SFL. The grille also needs to stay open for the humidity sensor to work.
