Upgrade your old Broan, Nautilus, or NuTone Bathroom Fan

The new Broan / NuTone model 690 economy bath fan upgrade kit is now available on IAQSOURCE.COM and BATHROOMFANEXPERTS.COM

Are you tired of your noisy and ineffective "builder-grade" fan but don't have the time or expertise to replace the whole thing?

Thousands of Broan and Nutone economy fans have been installed by home builders for the last 10-15 years.  Builders have opted to use these fans because they are cheap and readily available from the local suppy house. 

Problems with these cheap fans include:

  • They are noisy because their motor assemblies have outlived their useful life
  • Their grilles are dirty and discolored
  • The do not move enough air to be effective in lowering humity in the bathroom

Furthermore - homeowners lack the skills necessary to cut into sheetrock and framing, rewire a fan, and reconnecti the ductwork.  In a downstairs bathroom, it seems almost impossible to upgrade your fan as there is no access from above.

With this new kit - it is easy to upgrade your Broan, Nutone, or Nautilus fan.  The process takes around 10 minutes and you are left with a fan that reduces sound by 50% and increases performance by 20%.  You also get a brand new grille that can be painted to match the decor in the bathroom.
