Electric Nutone Ceiling Bathroom Heater

giraffeflute05September 7, 2013

Hi out there!
I have a 1970s Nutone ceiling heater in both my bathrooms. I would like to change them out to something else. One works and the other doesn't. The one that doesn't if we accidentally flip the switch will make our elec bill skyrocket even if for a few hours. I live in Texas so a heater in my bathroom isn't really.. well used. I would like a ceiling fan or to at least replace them with an exhaust fan or something. Is this possible? I know very little about electrical. I can install a light thats about it.

If the fan works, you can probably disable the heater part. Most of the Nut One units I have seen have seperate heater control and if you don't have a separate switch/thermostat, I suspect whoever installer just hooked the fan and heater to the same switch, you can just unhook that.
