  • 781WHNT is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice design, poor trim material As others have noted the trim will rust after a short period of time.I removed mine, sanded it,primed with rust inhibitor and sprayed it black. looks great now but that piece should be plastic.

    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 5 out of 5 by from Works very well! Arrived in a few days, packaged well. Installation instructions were fine. Installed where no fan had been been before so had to run the duct work to outer wall. The fan/light was the easiest part of the install! Nomore fogged mirror or window. Fan is quiet and can't be heard in adjoining room when running. Does the trick and looks better then those ugly plastic ones! Highly recommend.

    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!

  • 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.

    Is there some way to adapt this model to use incandescent bulbs? I don't want fluorescent.

    Asked by: Margery
