A bathroom exhaust fan plays an important function in helping prevent the build up of moisture, humidity and odors in your bathroom. They also remove any vapor from your walls and mirrors, keeping them and everything in your bathroom in good conditions.
A bathroom exhaust fan with a light and heater will warm up your bathroom while giving you fresh, well-ventilated air to breathe while you shower in peace.
Here are three of the best bathroom exhaust fans with light and heater you can buy.
3 of the Best Bathroom Exhaust Fans with Light and Heater
Broan Nu-Tone Directionally-Adjustable Bathroom Heater
There are several different Broan-Nutone models on this list. That should come as no surprise considering how this company is one of the leaders when it comes to making bath and ventilation fans.
The Broan Nu-Tone Directionally-Adjustable Bathroom Heater 100HL model sets itself apart from the others by allowing you to adjust the direction of the fan itself. The fan comes with an integrated heater and an incandescent light that'll brighten up your bathroom as well.
The most crucial feature of this model is the adjustable heat outlet. With that, you can point the heat precisely to where it needs to be in your bathroom. For example, you could point it right at your toilet seat, or even at the entrance to your shower; wherever you prefer.
The heater itself is quite powerful, with a 1500watt heater that won't take long to make your bathroom pleasant and toasty.
The combination of heat and steam from your morning showers could be unpleasant sometimes. That won't be the case with this unit thanks to its 2.0-Sone (a measurement of its loudness), 100-CFM ventilation fan. True to Broan-NuTone's company values, this model will ensure that the air inside the bathroom is just as fresh as the air outside.
The unit also brightens up your bathroom with its bright, 100-watt incandescent lighting.
Broan-NuTone Ceiling Heater, Fan, and Light Combo
Another great unit from the Broan-Nutone lineup, the QTXN110HL model is an impressive bathroom exhaust fan and heater combo.
The most notable feature of this model is that it's much quieter than the other ones on this list. This exhaust fan operates at only 0.9 Sones which is whisper quiet when you compare it to some other brands. A quiet exhaust fan means that you won't wake up the rest of the house whenever you switch it o, plus, your own experience in the bathroom will be a much more relaxing one.
The unit carries a 1500watt heater that you can either use with the ventilation fan or entirely independently. That's another element of control you have with this unit: you can enable each function separately.
Ventilation is critical to remove the humidity in the bathroom and provide it with fresh air, and this unit does that exceptionally well. The ventilation fan can handle as much as 110 CFM (or cubic feet per minute), so you won't have to wait at all for the humid and foggy bathroom air to clear out.
This unit is simple enough for any DIY type of homeowner to install themselves. Plus, you have the option of purchasing multi-function wall switches built specifically for use with this NuTone model.
Delta BreezRadiance Exhaust Bath Fan
The Delta Products Corporation also earns a spot on this list with its BreezRadiance 80 CFM exhaust fan that comes with a light and heater combo. This unit is part of Delta's Breez Ventilation System lineup, which includes a series of different models that'll suit your needs. Here, though, we're looking at the RAD80L model in particular.
If you're looking for an energy-saving unit for your bathroom with lots of safety features, this is the one you'll want to buy. Delta built two things into this exhaust fan that you'll appreciate: first, using DC motor technology, and second, a built-in thermostat that keeps temperatures consistent. Together, these two features will contribute to significant energy-savings that'll reduce your power bills each month.
The heating module is quite powerful at 1300 watts, so you'll get the warmth that you're expecting. But more importantly, there are several safety features included in the design as well. The heater module has a thermal cut off and thermostat. If it ever gets too hot for whatever reason, the unit will shut itself off, reducing any dangers of overheating. It also has a metal guard to make sure that you'll never touch the heating wire by accident when fixing or handling the unit.
In terms of lighting, Delta included a 26-watt CFL lamp which will keep your bathroom well-lit.
The exhaust fan in this unit can handle 80 CFM of airflow. That’s not the highest on this list, certainly, but it's still pretty good, and that’ll keep your bathroom well-ventilated.
