About the Broan 678

The Broan 678 white bathroom ventilation fan with light. This ventilation fan is perfect for lavatory applications by helping to air out the bathroom in which it is stationed, and at 50 CFM with an operating volume level of 2.5 sones, it performs quickly and quietly. With a shatter resistant light diffusing lens, a bright 100-watt lighting capacity and a designer styled white polymeric grille that complements virtually any decor, the Broan 678 is an efficient and stylish lighting application (bulb not included). This bathroom ventilation fan features a plug-in, permanently lubricated motor, a polymeric fan impeller, mounting ears for quick, sturdy installation, and polymeric duct connectors with tapered sleeves for easy, positive ducting. The Broan 678 white bathroom ventilation fan with light is UL listed for use over bathtubs and showers when connected to a GFCI-protected branch circuit and may be used with a model 68W or 68V two-function control which are available separately.

Good low CFM combo fan/light Rated 4 by jamdad60
  Yes, I recommend this product.
The unit was relatively easy to install in the ceiling of my enclosed shower compartment. I selected the lower CFM unit since it was a relatively confined space. My house configuration caused some difficulty with the vent pipe coming from the unit, but that was not a unit issue. The light output is very good and provides consistent light throughout the whole shower stall. The fan noise is reasonable, although I wish it could have been less (just didn't want to pay the higher price for the lower noise). Fan has some rattle occasionally, but not consistently. Overall, a good value for a small area that needed both light and vent.

Replaced 20yr Broan unit Rated 5 by dgeiger
  Yes, I recommend this product.
I was amazed how very little this Broan unit has changed from when my house was constructed 20 years ago. The fan died in the old unit, and It made replacement very easy. I went to HD first and all they had was NuTone products - bad! (Un)Fortunately the smallest unit was 9" square and my ceiling cutout was 81/4 inch, but I was not about to create more work for me. So I went to my local family owned hardware store who happened to carry the Broan line - Yeah!. My only complaint is that there is little room for adjustment with the grill screw that connects the light reflector assembly. I had to replace it with one that was 1/4 inch longer so the acorn nut would secure it. We have exhaust again in the 1/2 bath.

The Broan bathroom fan/light is an excellent value, easily installed and quiet while in use. Rated 5 by John124
  Yes, I recommend this product.
The Broan bathroom light/fan is well designed, the instructions are easy to understand and follow. The fixture fits readily into the bathroom ceiling and takes about 1 hour to install when replacing an existing light/fan. The fan can be wired to operate either independently of or in conjunction with the light. The Broan bathroom light/fan is an attractive fixture with a strong, quiet fan that is an attractive addition to any bathroom.

don't forget to prewire or you are in trouble Rated 1 by disatisfied
  No, I do not recommend this product.
I installed this unit and after reading the instructions was not warned to make sure the wiring was complete before the drywall ceiling is installed. There is no way to service the electric post installation. It also appears there is no way to replace the motor as the motor compartment is riveted in. Overall this unit was unsatisfactory
