Quickly create a warm, comfortable temperature in the bathroom with help from this Broan 161 single-bulb heater. The unit heats up quickly for instant relief from the chill, and its room-specific heat distribution means energy-efficient warmth--no need to adjust the central thermostat and heat up the whole house when getting ready for work in the morning. With its compact steel housing, the unit installs easily into the ceiling (though it shouldn't be placed directly over a tub or shower); its adjustable mounting brackets provide keyhole slots that span up to 24 inches. The single-bulb heater uses a 250-watt BR40-size infrared bulb (not included), and requires a Broan model 69W or 69V two-function control (sold separately) for operation. UL listed for 75-degree-C wiring (retrofits), the bulb heater measures approximately 8-3/8 inches long by 8-1/8 inches wide by 6 inches high and features a white exterior for a clean look that will nicely accommodate almost any decor. Give your bathroom an instant boost in heat with this Broan one-bulb heater (model 161). This bulb heater, which uses one 250-watt BR40 bulb (not included), gives you much-needed warmth when you need it, without touching your central thermostat. Its bulbs can be used individually when you don't need so much heat, or together when it's colder. Broan also offers one-bulb (model 162) and two-bulb (model 164) heaters with integrated fan ventilation. The heater features adjustable mounting brackets that can span up to 24 inches, with keyhole slots, and its housing can be vertically adjusted after your ceiling is finished to give you a perfect installation.

Why Spot Heating Makes Sense in Your Home: You hastily get ready every morning, head for work, the office, or school, just when the central heating system has finished warming the entire house. It's about as inefficient as it gets. Spot heating solves that problem. No longer will you heat an entire home when you simply need a bit of comfort in the bath or dressing room, or any other room.
Efficient Heating Element: Even the most efficient central heating systems send heat up the chimney. But Broan spot heaters deliver every bit of energy back into your home. There's no external venting, so the electricity you convert to heat is delivered directly where you want it.
Simple, Safe, and Efficient: Permanently lubricated motors are quiet and require no maintenance. They can be operated by a built-in adjustable thermostat or an optional wall-mount controller. Heaters may be converted in the field to a choice of wattages/voltages. And for safety, heaters are thermal overload protected and the complete heater assembly conveniently removes from the housing for cleaning.
