Bath heat, light, and exhaust recomendations please


I would appreciate recommendations for a bathroom light/heater/exhaust fan combination. I have searched the Internet and it looks like Air King and Nutone are well liked. The Panasonic version at over $200.00 is too pricey for me.

My bathroom is only 5x 8. Thanks in advance for any help.

Broan, is another brand, they own Nutone. I usually figue 1.5 times the area in CFM for a bath fan, so you need 60+ CFM. Check big box stores.

Home Depot and Lowes have them for $250 plus and they have to be ordered. The fans online at 70CFM. The noise for the cheaper ones are at three to four sones (a sound measurement. 1 is very quiet).

Online is way cheaper.

Anyone have any prefereances?

5'x8'x8' ceiling @ 8 Air Changes per Hour for bathrooms gives 320 cu. ft. and 8(320)/60 = 43 CFM.
I couldn't find them that small for my same size bathroom but if anybody made them they'd be pretty quiet.

The smallest I have found is 70 CFM. I hope it is okay to use a fan with more CFM than I need.

Anyone have preferances for the heater/exhaust/light fan?

I'm in the market too - but thinking of delinking the heat from the fan/light.

The additional $ for the heat is about the same as a dedicated heat fixture - and I imagine the heat performance would/could be much better.

That sounds like a good idea. Do you or anyone else have any recomendations about dedicated heat fixtures?
