Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BR549 Installed and working as described
I installed this fan about a month ago and it is working just fine and we are enjoying the heater very much. It is noisy but it makes no claim otherwise.
The two complaints are on the installation. For 'installating in existing construction' (quoting from page 3 of the manual) t wasn't entirely clear where to attach the unit to the header. I finally figured out what to do or at least what works. Please ignore the ceiling finish in the photo, that's another project.
The real annoyance was the wiring instructions. Everything fits fine and works fine but Figure 2 seems to be backwards from the way the cover plate is pre-labeled (see attached pictures). Definitely check before wiring everything up and installing. It wasn't until I put the cover plate on that I found out it was exactly reversed or at least that is how it struck me.

Very attractive fixture with plenty of light output and the fan and heater work great. The heater heats up my bathroom in a couple of minutes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ultrawriter Amazingly easy to replace guts of unit in existing housing
We had two older NuTone units this model, and the heater unit went bad and fan was failing too. I ordered a replacement shipped to the house and this morning started what I thought might be a difficult installation, or one that would make me give up and hire somebody. But 20 minutes later the new unit is installed and working great. I had read a review from someone here (thanks whoever you are) about using the old housing and just swinging the new fan/heater/light unit into position. Worked like a charm. The modular plug design of the electrical connection makes it easy and safe to reconnect the new unit.
The fact that the new unit came installed in its new housing in the box gave me practice loosening two screws and then tilting and sliding the unit to unhook the bracket holding the heater exhaust side to the new housing (which we are not using). That done, it was a simple matter of doing the same thing to remove and lower the dead unit from its housing in the ceiling of the bathroom (after unplugging the electrical connector), then reverse the process, hook the exhaust side to the housing, tighten the two screws on the opposite side, reconnect the electrical plug, replace the cover, turn the circuit breaker back on and start the unit. Fan and heater run quietly again and all is well.
It took me nearly as long to type this installation review as it did to install the replacement unit! I can't comment yet on durability of the unit (the old ones have been here since long before we bought this house 9 years ago), but just wanted anyone here on the fence about going the replacement-guts route to know it can be done by just about anyone. I am not all that handy, for what it's worth. Impressive design.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bigdaddy Made cheaply
Bought to replace the exact same unit. The newer one is made much more cheaply. Sheet metal is very flimsy and galvanized. Previous model was a thicker metal with coating to stop rust.
Not too loud.
Heat works well.
Last one lasted 14 yrs. Minot sure this one will last as long

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HospitalGuy Just What We Wanted...
It's a little hard to evaluate value because although this item was pricey who can put a real value when you need heat on a cold winter morning or a dim night light when you stumble into the bathroom in the middle of the night? Simply put, our old unit was on its last days and this replacement item was just what we wanted. Two light settings, a heater and an exhaust fan all in one. There was no other product like it that we could identify.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Terry Well built!
The 9093WH Nutone is a quality built unit that works very well. You can see into the guts of it if you look up at it. The blower for the heater seems over powered and some what noisy, but the plus side is that it helps dry you off when standing under it.. Definitely recommend a timer or even a thermostat for the heater. I am still having problems though getting them to replace the grill that was damaged from shipping: the folks at Home Depot told me, the first time, that the manufacturer would send a new one but after three weeks I e-mailed them and they replied back saying I would have to pack it up and take it to the store that is 35 miles away. I'm hoping for a better solution!
