Answer: 
I would not think about the unit heating an area, it is really just intended to heat your body after you exit the shower through infrared heat. Locate it just above the location you stand after you exit the shower

Nightlight

This question is from 70 CFM Ceiling Exhaust Fan with 250-Watt 1-Bulb Infrared Heater

April 17, 2016
On the Build website, it says this unit has an integrated nightlight, but it does not say that here. Just wondering which is accurate and how that would work? I can't find any mention of it in the manual... It appears to me to be a single infrared bulb. Could you just put this on a dimmer switch?

Answer: 
The Broan 164 single bulb heater and exhaust fan does not have a night light. It is not recommended to use a dimmer switch on this unit. If you have any other questions regarding the Broan 164, please call Technical Support at 1-800-637-1453.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Had To Return The fan motor rotated in the wrong direction so it did not exhaust any of the steam from my shower. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big DIYer Exact replacement for existing fixture that lasted many years. Wanted exact replacement based on our experience. We are very happy to have found it! March 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Broan fan Affordable product that does the job. Would buy again February 16, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good Fan for the Price I replaced this same fan about 5 years ago. I chose this one again because my wife likes the heat lamp and the installation is easy as a replacement versus doing a refit for a new size fan. Quality is not the greatest, but for our little bathroom this fan works fine. January 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor longevity on this one! I have built 4 homes and never seen a fan that quits this quick. The motor is caputs and needs to be replaced, but is not covered under my homeowners warranty. Just perfect! I have 2 more of these fans in 2 other bathrooms. Waiting for them to die soon! Broan I have a question for you......what happened to quality and reliability? 5 years is hardly reliable. I don't recommend anyone waste their time on this 162 model. Not a way to spend your hard earned cash. April 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bathroom exhaust fan Was very easy to install, and is nice and quiet. Great replacement fan. April 14, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works as it should, looks decent enough. The installation of the product is pretty average in terms of exhaust fans. Unless you have an open ceiling or plan on cutting from joist to joist, you'll need access from above. I did enjoy the adjustments of the mounting brackets which allow for play in thickness of the drywall. The wiring diagram is kind of confusing at first because it's not typical. The junction box was a little tight when putting it back on, I had to bend the metal tab a bit. I don't know for sure that this thing produces only 70 sones, however I did fill the gaps and tried to keep things as secure as possible to lower that. It does seem better after the fact. The grill is kind of cheap, it attaches uses to springs. Luckily you don't need to remove it to replace the light bulb, otherwise I'd see this being a problem. This had no bearing on me, but after a quick search I wasn't able to find any 4" to 3" adapters made by Broan, This model takes 4" so make sure that's what you have if you're replacing an existing unit. Overall I was able to complete this (start to finish) in about an 1 hour and 15 minutes, and this includes adding insulation, and new duct work. June 26, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by The heat lamp doesn't really throw much heat. The wiring diagram could have been better marked as to + - and it was a real job getting it into an already built home. Not much heat out of the lamp April 2, 2014
