6 Questions from the Community

  • The fan in this unit is used for ventilation. You can wire this to a double switch to use the two features separately.

    The Broan model I have is installed in the bathroom ceiling just outside the shower. It has a fan that runs as soon as the switch is turned on. Is the purpose of the fan to distribute the heat provided by the lamps or to provide ventilation? (I have separate ventilation installed as well.) Is it possible to use only the heat lamps without the fan? I thought that the warmth from two 250 watt heat lamps would be sufficient but I'd like more warmth in the winter.

    A. The fan in this unit is used for ventilation. You can wire this to a double switch to use the two features separately.

  • No, you do not have to use heat bulbs with the Broan 164.

    Do you have to use a heat bulb in this unit? Would I be able to use a fluorescent bulb instead?

    A. No, you do not have to use heat bulbs with the Broan 164.

  • They are both set up for heat bulbs. Use 250-watt R40/BR40 size infrared bulbs (not included).

    Are both bulbs heat bulbs or is one heat and the other light?

    A. They are both set up for heat bulbs. Use 250-watt R40/BR40 size infrared bulbs (not included).

  • Yes, the Broan 164 can be wired to a triple switch to control each function individually.

    Can this unit be wired to a triple switch? One for the fan, and a separate switch for each bulb (one infrared, one fluorescent), to control them all independently?

    A. Yes, the Broan 164 can be wired to a triple switch to control each function individually.

  • This unit uses (2) 250W BR40-size infrared bulbs to produce heat. It does not have a forced air heating element.

    Does this unit provide forced-air heat (does it have heating elements)?

    A. This unit uses (2) 250W BR40-size infrared bulbs to produce heat. It does not have a forced air heating element.

  • The Broan 164 is rated for wet or dry locations.

    Can this only be installed in a shower?

    A. The Broan 164 is rated for wet or dry locations.

Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm very happy with the purchase I was looking to replace the old bath Fan and i found this brand, It is very good fan its working perfectly, actually when I bought the house the other bath has the same fan and it is working for 10 years. I absolute recommend this fan.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish is had more heat Purchased this to replace the Broan unit which had the blower heat, that unit stopped working within a year. This unit with the heat bulb isn't as warm. I like the heat blowing on me when I stepped out of the shower, this unit isn't nearly as warm

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It quit working! I set this fixture up to run one light and the fan on a timed switch and the second light on another switch. After one week of use, the lights stopped lighting. Doing some debugging I find that the current to the lights is too low and will not light the 2- 250 watt bulbs. Fan works on one switch and somehow the low current is also trying to run the fan. The wiring diagram is a mess, but I figured it out and wired it properly. I am still trying to figure out how to salvage the fixture. It would be great if an engineer from Broan would address this issue and those that others have had with this product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Poor Wiring and Eventual Problems The wiring diagram is horrible to say the least. After a bit of studying, I figured out how it was supposed to work and hooked it up. It worked for about 1 week when suddenly both lights quit working but the fan still worked. The switches for the heat lamp and the light were providing power, and instead it was in the fixture itself. In all total, it had about 3 hours of total "run time", and that being the light, not the heat lamp or the blower. Furthermore, the pigtails within the electrical box are far too short for any sort of installation ease, with one being entirely too short altogether. I am still working on figuring out what is wrong with this fixture, and when I saw this, I decided to comment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from wiring diagrams are VERY POOR You need to provide a schematic diagram for wiring. The dumbed down illustrations that are provided are substandard. If you just told us what color wire went which which function, that would be enough. But instead you list the wire color with a black/white coversion chart - but no funtion information with it. I little bit more information please.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Combo Fan & Heater Replaces Space Heater & Exhaust Fan The average rating on "ease of installation" does indicate any fault of the 164. Although the installation steps are simply stated, significant effort is necessary to complete ..The heat lamps are controlled by a timer switch without an "always on" position as a safety precaution. So far the unit performs well, as it has only been in use for a few weeks. I would prefer a schematic type diagram for wiring instructions.Ooverall I am pleased with the Broan 164 .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A excellant product My objective was to be able to heat the Bathroom without heating the whole house ar waiting for the Furnace to heat the house. After researching both Broan and other makes I selected the Broan 164. It gets the job done and helps to hold down the utilities expenses. I highly recommend the Broan 164
