Asked by Henry August 4, 2020

Answers

Mold and drywall damage can happen if your bathroom remains a moist environment. A hot shower will, 100% of the time, put some amount of moisture on your walls and ceiling. Your concern is really “how long should I leave the fan on to dry out my bathroom after a hot shower.” For a bathroom your size, this fan will be fine. Turn it on before you shower, and keep it on until the humidity is out of the room. Start with half an hour.

I had it installed, but as I remember - has been installed and working great for 3 years now - it needed at least 12" or more.

would a 500w timer vs 1800w timer make the fan run slower?

Asked by Steve November 25, 2019

Answer

A timer is different than a dimmer or solid state speed control. The fan speed would be the dame on a timer. If you have further technical or installation questions, please contact our NuTone Technical Support Department at 1-888-336-6151 between 8:30 AM and 7:00 PM (EST) Monday-Friday. Thank you.

744 SFL performs exactly as advertised
Customer review from broan-nutone.com logo
I installed this fixture 3 years ago and it has worked exactly as planned. I use a 220v steam generator everyday (see in photo). I installed a relay that cuts off the humidity sensor 110v power when the steam is on. When the steam timer stops, this relay returns power to the humidity sensor which turns on the fan in about 20 seconds. It runs until my shower is bone dry then turns off even with the door closed. I foresaw that the sensor may cycle if the house humidity becomes high so I installed a separate switch that manually turns off the humidity sensor system if needed and I have a separate timer for manual fan operation. I use a GU24 day white 4100K LED bulb that is like sunshine in the shower. The only issue I have had that moisture on the top of the bulb base has tripped the GFC, but a little WD40 on top of the bulb base has stopped that. Great product. Billy Ferguson

Disappointing to say the least
I purchased this recessed fan to install above my shower. My duct that runs from the fan to the vent outside is at the most 7 feet. While this fan is very quiet, it performs at a subpar level. My bathroom is about 50 square feet meaning I would need a 50 CFM size fan for proper ventilation. The 744NT fan is 70 CFM so in theory, one would think this fan would be plenty capable of handling my set up. Unfortunately, this fan does not come close to adequately eliminating steam from the shower and I consistently have moisture spots on the ceiling after a shower. Even with the bathroom door cracked open a few inches for extra ventilation, this fan still cannot keep up. Overall, while I like the quietness of this fan, I enjoy the look of it, the practical use of this fan simply fails on all levels and thus, I would not recommend this product to anyone looking to install it in a bathroom/shower application. By contrast, I also have a nutone fan only (no light) installed in my other bathroom. That fan is a 50CFM in a bathroom that is less than 45 square feet & that fan works great. Perhaps the way the recessed fan/light combo is designed prevents the steam from easily being removed. Maybe the light blocks the airflow too much. Whatever the reason, the 744NT is a great disappointment & I now wish I had not installed it. I have also contacted nutone directly to voice my concerns so perhaps they will have a solution.

I installed this light/fan in a fairly small bathroom that consistently grew mold despite opening the window to the outside. After installing this fan, the moisture level is down to near-zero, even during hot, lengthy showers. It should be noted that I mounted the unit directly over a shower enclosure in an 8 foot ceiling. My only complaint is that unless I'm missing something, given the construction, the fan motor may be difficult or impossible to replace when that time comes.

I was looking for a compact combo light & exhaust fan for an alcove shower installation. I liked the idea that it looked like a regular recessed lighting fixture, and it was supposed to be relatively quiet in operation. Since this was a remodel installation, I needed to climb up in the attic to install. It went very smoothly, but the lack of an included installation template could cause problems if you're not careful. I made my own out of some cardboard from a cereal box, being careful to mark which direction the exhaust duct connection was pointing. Note that the installation instructions (available on this website) made mention of allowing a 1/8" gap between the bottom of the unit and the attic-side of the ceiling wallboard. My unit arrived w/ some foam strips installed around the light/exhaust inlet opening that seemed to force the 1/8" spacing. Even so, I allowed a tiny bit more gap. Also note that, once you adjust the arms that extend from the unit and are nailed to the adjacent ceiling joists, you are supposed to crimp the channels that the arms travel in so they are snug and there won't be any rattling. These 2 things, the gap & the crimping, may be where others who have reviewed this item and complained about the noise went wrong. Electrical hook-up was very straight-forward. I wish they would've included a cable clamp for the point at which the electrical cable enters the unit, but I had a spare one I used. Also note, if you are installing this directly above the shower as I am, it must be connected to a Ground-Fault Isolation circuit. The hardest part for me was running the electrical cable through the walls to hook it up to power & the switch. Once that was done, it worked like a charm. The bathroom isn't yet complete, so I can't fully test the installation for getting rid of moisture. For that reason, I've only rated this 4 stars instead of 5. I can say at this point the noise of the fan will not be able to be heard above the noise of the water from the shower itself. Final note: I think the cost of this unit is a bit high when you look at the actual unit itself. I don't see why it should be so much more expensive compared to other comparable units, but perhaps it's a case of "you get what you pay for". If all goes well with the full operational test, I will probably be buying another one to install in the other full bath upstairs (kids' bathroom) when I tackle that remodel job.

Great recessed light. Nice and bright. Very quiet fan does the job in our 9 x 9 bathroom. So much better looking than those cheap plastic options.

No panacea
Customer review from broan-nutone.com logo
Rating the second one I have. First one installed by electrician in plaster lathe ceiling as part of remodel. Very quiet, seems to have good air flow. Install was sloppy. Decided to get the same unit for new half bath and install myself. The install was exasperating - instructions poor, methodology suggested by Broan highlighted design flaws. Fan mounting procedure on framing is worthless. I finally just measured up from the ceiling and marked the mounting hole locations that way. Crimping the extension arms is hit or miss yet considered crucial to avoid vibration noise. Use of Additional screws mentioned as an alternative are not included and my opinion is that those are no better than the crimp especially with the hassle. The plastic exhaust flap is cheap. No adjustment possible. Counterbalance doesn't close flap completely (side exhaust position). Yes, the fan assembly is level. Amount of space for wiring connections is small. Attaching wire-nuts harder than it needs to be.

Solid performance for 10 years
Customer review from broan-nutone.com logo
Great unit for compact bathroom. Works great and have a dimmer switch for light and timer for the fan. Only thing that was a problem - when the light bulb burns out, the fan stops working. If it weren't for Amazon reviews, I wouldn't have known that and replaced the unit. Like others wanted to install LED bulb but found it didn't work. Any chance the manufacturer will come out with a LED retrofit module for existing LR44 Fan/Light units? I see you have a new LED model. Being able to retrofit rather than buy a new one and throw out the old one would be A+++
