Replaced two in my daughters house that were same brand but were about 40 years old (assuming they were original with house). Wasn't sure of old model number (no numbers visible), but was able to keep old housing (so didn't need to get in attic) and just replace fan/light components and light cover. Components were direct replacements. Good product, but they need to improve to where it can be installed without getting into attic for complete replacements. All but one of the old components still worked, so keeping those as spares, but covers had aged/yellowed and one light cover had fallen off and broke. Not bad for 40 year old fan/light/heater system.
It does not work, I have to return it. I had to call an electrician in to confirm this.

The package I received came complete with the exhaust fan, light assembly, and heater. The heater assembly of my original bathroom Broan unit recently became faulty after 20 years of use. I replaced all three components and they were extremely easy to install. My "old" Broan unit works and looks like new.
I love the heater. It is on a separate switch so I have the choice to use it or not. The exhaust fan is no louder than the one I replaced. Not the quietest and not the loudest just happy it does the job of keeping the moisture off the walls. It was installed by our contractor so I have no opinion of installation.
