Broan 164 Reviews
Rated 5 out of
I'm very happy with the purchaseI 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.

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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
Can this only be installed in a shower?
A. The Broan 164 is rated for wet or dry locations.
