What type of circuit for a bulb heater exhaust fan?

genab55December 10, 2012

I'm considering having a bulb heater/exhaust fan put in my bathroom and can't find info on what type of circuit it takes. Does anyone have any information of opinions on bulb heaters? I'm looking at a Air King AK917 Bulb Heater with Exhaust Fan or a NuTone 70 CFM One-Bulb Heat-A-Vent Bathroom Exhaust Fan.

Thank for any help you can offer!

The Air King you cited uses a maximum 250 watt lamp. So 250 watts / 120 volts = 2.1 amps. The fan motor draws 0.9 amps. Combined about 3 amps.
