Answer: 
large base, wattage is your choice. Light is in an enclosed space, some light bulbs have a much shorter life if exposed to that. ANYWAY lets think here......fan......light......just purchase a paddle fan light bulb!!

Answer: 
Go measure this yourself. Who has time to find the information of a 12 year old metal cube? You will find 99% of replacements are a different size than a 12 year old unit.... of anything! Hole cutting is the least of concern. How about two lines of electric? How about a METAL vent that is clean and not one filled with lint of 12 years! Therefore better venting.

I consulted an electrician and my breaker box is not up to code so the whole thing needs to be replaced. I'll sleep better with a pro doing this particular job.

Answer: 
Need to read the instructions. If I start giving you piece meal requirements it will be like swiss cheese. More important is the kind/condition of wire that runs to the unit. Can it handle a 20 amp? Is your circuit breaker panel or fuse panel have sized for this?

I think that the answers given, "no" and "yes" are both a bit black and white so I'd say this... the reason you have an exhaust fan is to pull the moisture out of the room because walls covered in moisture can lead to mold. Ceiling heater/exhaust fans attempt to minimize the heat loss but obviously there will be some.

Personally I take very short showers so using an exhaust fan isn't necessary but some of my sons take l-o-n-g showers and the whole bathroom is drenched afterwards and it is very important to use the fan even if there is some heat loss. Read Less

Answer: 
This unit has two fans. The heater fan forces air into the room from one side of the grille and the exhaust fan is pulling air from the other side of the grille. You should not lose any heat if you have both the heater and exhaust vent running at the same time.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Exact replacement My old exhaust fan's vent fan had given up the ghost, despite the fact that the heater fan and light worked just fine. This was an exact replacement for the original, including the sound level which could be lower. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Replacement Was thrilled to find a direct replacement for the 1978 installation. No attic time for the 3. Just swapped them. The originals still running but, covers worn and craching. Hope the replacements last at long as the oriiginals. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good I could not fit this model into existing area. i have had a model 650 installed for 30 plus years and still working. I am trying to locate the cover for the unit. Don Lyskawa was of great help with this problem. Where can i find the unit cover for the 650? Broan makes a product that is still working well after all these years. April 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Drop-in Replacement This product was selected because it was an identical replacement for my old heater/fan/light. That meant that I could use the old housing which meant I didn't have to do any fitting, The entire process of switching the internal components took less than fifteen minutes. The original failed because the heater fan motor seized up and the grille melted. That had been repaired and except for the grill, I have a spare unit. The plug-in wire connections made wiring a cinch and the simple component fastening also made the repair easy. April 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PRETTY GOOD HEAT, VENT AND LIGHTING ESPECIALLY WITH AND LED BULB INSTALLED IN IT. THIS UNIT DOES A VERY GOOD JOB IN ALL ASPECTS. THE ONLY THING I DO NOT LIKE ABOUT IT IS HOW LOUD IT IS WHEN IT IS IN THE HEATING MODE. STARTING UP IT RATTLES THE PICTURES ON THE WALLS.... IMAGINE HAVING A CROP DUSTER CRANKING UP IT'S ENGINE IN YOUR BATHROOM!! April 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by gets noisier and louder till it is unbearable I am on my fourth heater unit and second fan motor since purchasing this unit 3 years ago. Plan on replacing something at least once a year if you own one of these. These units gradually gets noisier and louder till it is unbearable in just a few months of use. I took one of the heater motors apart to see why it failed.. The motor bearing on the side to the squirrel cage fan had become so loose from the constant vibration that it would spin around with the motor shaft and it no longer offered any support to the squirrel cage fan that was free to wobble to the point that the armature of the motor would rub and cause the motor to slow down. Since it cost almost as much for a replacement heater motor as a new complete unit I am now looking to buy a third new unit for spare parts. Once you install one of these you are looking at a major job to remove it and go with a better unit, so I would recommend that you pay the extra and get a good one to start with! I wish I could give a zero stat or even a minus star for this product. March 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Broan-Nutone bathroom heat , light, fan Noisey but after a while too noisey. 70 cf needs to be quieter than a loud TV. Replacement of the fan or the the heater is the adventure I am going on. Home Depot and Grainer do not have replacement fans. If Grainer does it's web site doesn't let me find it. Air fan motor and squirrel cage and metal housing should be an easy replacement and NOT have to install new with all the hassle of electric (for both heater and air fans) and connect to outside vent. This product saves heating the entire apartment in the morning, vent fan is on a timer so it keeps the mold in the bathroom at a minimum and the light is the lowest of wattage which saves electric an early am headache of too much light to see one's way. September 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good value for the price It was a little harder to install because we were replacing an old fan, so I had to do a lot of rewiring and drywalling. October 16, 2015
