Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by StephenMark71 heater issues
I have repaired three of these units due to problems with the heater. Nutone is now using zipties to hold the heating element wires in place but the problem is the wires are now to tied far to close to the element and after a short while the insulation on the wiring is burning off thus shorting out the heater fan motor. I had three units comeback to my store with this issue so now before selling a new unit I cut the zipties off the element and have not had one come back with heater issues since.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TexasHomeowner Good product, easy to install
I bought this product to replace the exact same unit that was about 15 years old - nothing wrong with the old one after 15 years, just started to yellow and look a bit dingy with years of accumulated dust.
The instructions are a bit lacking, but this fan combo is pretty easy to install without detailed instructions. I did have to take the unit entirely apart to complete the install (the instructions call for disassembly of the light/heater unit for installation, but I also had to remove the electric junction box, the blower fan and motor, and the exhaust shroud to get it in). No worries though, everything goes back together very easily. If you are not fairly savvy with electrical wiring, I'd recommend that you hire an electrician to run all the correct wiring.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sol Good but loud
Works great but is louder than I anticipated
Arrived damaged - I went to the store for assistance (not sure what I was thinking - HD customer service never meets my expectations) my only option to resolve the issue of getting a complete unit in good condition in a reasonable timeframe was to order and pay for a second unit and wait for it to arrive at my home, make one complete unit out of the two, then piece the two damaged units together and return the damaged unit to the store for a refund - always frustrating to hear over and over by customer service staff about policy rather than having someone listen to your issue and work out a viable solution that would help resolve the issue they created and should take responsibility for

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marestra This product has great features
Brings convenient, comforting warmth to the bathroom with the high-output heater. The nightlight function is very convenient. And mainly provides supplemental heat and does not take place of home's main heat source.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JerryG Are you watching TV in the bathroom?
I just brought another qt9093 after 15 years of great service from my old Qt9093 fan. When I read the reviews, I wondered what these people complaining about the noise are doing in their bathrooms. It is a tad loud but I'm not watching TV or listing to the radio in the bathroom. Even then, the noise would be a minor distraction for the few minutes in the bathroom. I even like it a little loud. It reminds me that its on and when you have kids that forget to turn the fan off. its a plus.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LCom Excellent Product
This light, night light, heater and fan is a replacement for one we purchased 21 years ago. Everything on our last one worked except the heater which may or may not have just needed a motor heater replacement, however, we chose to replace it rather than putting more money into it. Excellent product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Syd4444 Bad Design, Good Functionality
This is the thing, after reading countless positive reviews, I cannot believe that NO ONE has mentioned this major aesthetic flaw. Looking up into the light, you see all the inner components of the light, giving a very industrial icky look. you can see a white sticker with blue writing, a red wire, white wire.. it's pretty ludicrous. There is very little aesthetic quality to this light, and I know it's a bathroom light, but look around your house- a lot of design attention is given to your light fixtures. This light has the aesthetic value of a public bathroom. Totally disappointed on that point. When I called Nutone they really didn't seem phased by this issue.
The actual product functionality is great. Heater is wonderful, fan is nice and a little noisy which we were hoping for a little bathroom privacy, and you can leave the fan off and just have the light. It is great for all those things.
Another complaint is it can take a 100w bulb, but only a 100w incandescent bulb will fit, not a 100w fluorescant or LED. Now I don't know a lot about the tech specs of this, when I called Nutone the guy seemed to feel that a 75w fluorescent is equal to a 100w incandescent. Anyway, I wish we could have a little brighter light in the bathroom, and it is weird that the product seems to be designed for incandescent, when the whole world is trying to move to the future in environmentally responsible products. I ended up getting a 75w led.
So bottom line, yes I like it but I thought we were splurging for the $300 model to get something really really nice and it could use some room for improvement.
Also, the directions do not correspond at all with the product. My handyman had no trouble, but if you are at all a novice, do not attempt to do this on the weekend as Nutone's technical phone line is closed on the weekends if you have any questions.
