Air King AK917 Reviews

Does not perform as expectedThis fan and heater lamp combination appears well manufactured. Disappointment comes after the installation of this product. This heater lamp does not provide any more heat than bathroom lights on the wall. By specification, this lamp can use only up to 250 W bulbs. The customer service of Air King company transferred me to an engineer to discuss the problems. I received only a voice mail and nobody calls me back. The company I bought it from does not accept any responsibility to pay for the return costs. My advice is: do not buy this product, you will avoid unnecessary costs ant disappointment.

250 Watt 70 CFM Painted Steel Bulb Heater and ExhaI am optimistic that this will be wonderful and quiet although truthfully I found that I can't just install it from the same sized hole in ceiling the old one came out of. I have to go into the attic because the vent is a different angle - had to get more vent hose to angle around, and the entire unit is larger - much larger than the existing hole. So it will either cost me money to install or I will need to try something new - and the temperatures are below zero now - so I have to wait for an opportunity to install it. :( I assume it will be a nice improvement though. :)

Is it possible/safe to put in a higher Watt bulb or is the 250W enough heat for a small bathroom.
A. A 250 watt bulb is the maximum wattage the Air King AK917 fan and heater can take. It would not be safe to put in a bulb more than 250 watts. This wattage will be enough to heat a small bathroom.
What bulb is compatible?
The Air King AK917 can use one 250 watt maximum type R40 medium base infrared lamp.
Can I wire the fan separate from the heat lamp? On two different switches?
The Air King AK917 fan and heat lamp can absolutely be wired separately.
