  • 788CHNT is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install I ordered two fans and received them in two days! The units were well packaged and the installation instructions were clear and easy to follow. The units work great and are very quiet when running. The only complaint that I have is that the bulbs that came with the units were 3500K which proved to provide a light that was too white. I change the bulbs to 2700K bulbs (soft white) and I am very satisfied with the overall appearance of the units.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from rusts in time I bought this fan less than 1 and a half year ago and the chrome is completely rusted. Also the fan does not absorb the moisture and my walls always look damp.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible light, noisy It works, but I would never buy it again - would do more research first! Looked nice in the store, but the store display didn't reveal the noise it makes. The light is terrible, and it's loud enough that I rarely use.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chrome Trim prone to rusting Bought from Home Depot; Installed and noticed rust spots after couple months. Cleaned it out with BarKeepersFriend (Stainless Steel Cleaner); Rust spots starts appears back in days. The entire depressed chrome area above the glass is covered with rust due to water condensation & trapping there. Very Bad Design- At least make that chrome finished plastic for equivlent!

    Why is over tub/shower not recommended? Also, I've read reviews that the light is too dim. Is the bulb you specified available in a brighter wattage?

    Asked by: Cici
    Thank you for your question on the model 788CHNT exhaust fan/light. The 788CHNT requires two 13W maximum, GU24 type, fluorescent bulbs. We do not recommend using anything other than the bulbs listed in the installation and spec sheets. Fans must go through certain testing at UL to be listed for installation above a tub or shower. These units have not been approved for that use.

    Which Lutron Claro Wall Switch works with this line?

    Asked by: Todd
    Thank you for your question on the model 788CHNT exhaust fan/light. We are not familiar with the Lutron Claro line of switches. You will need two switches and the associated wiring to individually operate the fan and light.

    We looked at bath fan/lights at Home Depot, which is what comes up in a search of "where to buy" but they don't carry 781WHNT.

    Asked by: Amy
    Thank you for your question on the model 781WHNT exhaust fan/light. It is almost impossible for our distributors to carry our complete line of products, but they are able to order anything in our line. If there are no other distributors in the area, please check with the special order desk at your local distributor.
