Backsplash PlatesBroan Backsplash


Help keep your kitchen looking like new with a Broan backsplash plate.


Broan splash plates provide easy clean-up of cooking splatter, come in many durable finishes and install easily with four screws. Broan backsplash or splash plates are available in 24", 30", 36" or 42" width; all are 24" high.



Downdraft HoodsBroan Downdraft Hoods


Sometimes a range hood mounted over the cooking surface just isn’t possible. This is precisely why BROAN offers a full line of downdraft hood ventilation options. They employ a universal design that allows them to be used in conjunction with nearly any cooktop by simply installing behind the cooking surface. Especially popular in island and peninsula applications, they feature an airbox that is installed below the counter at the rear of the cabinet space.


Thanks to a smart, space-saving design, more valuable cabinet space is available for storage. Enjoy 7” or 9.5” models that accommodate large stock pots and pans. For added performance and quiet operation, BROAN provides excellent external blower options.


Range HoodsBroan Hoods


Whether you are updating, upgrading or replacing a range hood or over-the range-microwave, you will find a BROAN model to suit your needs and budget. BROAN offers choices that fit into 21” to 48” cabinet widths in popular appliance matching colors as well as a broad selection of performance levels and feature appointments.


All the hardware you need to install the hood to the bottom of the cabinet is included with each unit for your convenience. In most cases, these hoods can be easily installed in a couple of hours for a fresh new look.



TimersBroan Timers


We’ve all experienced that nagging feeling that you forgot to turn off an appliance before leaving the house. Well, you can scratch the bathroom heater off the list when you utilize a timer or thermostat to control your supplemental heat. BROAN offers line-voltage thermostats that let you set the temperature anywhere between 50° and 85°F, and your heater will respond to the needs of the room. For a more short-term solution, BROAN timers control the heat for up to 60 minutes.



Trash CompactorsBroan Trash Compactor


No one really talks about it. The waste can under the kitchen sink. It’s a necessary evil, or so they say. But that all changes with a BROAN Elite trash compactor.


BROAN has been designing and producing these convenience appliances for nearly 40 years, refining the product while defining the category. And the result? A line of products that is the perfect complement to today’s high-style appliances and environmentally-conscious homeowners.



Indoor Air Quality ProductsBroan Indoor Air Quality


Fresh Air Ventilation = A healthy environment for you and your family. Improve the indoor air quality of your home with an affordable Broan whole house ventilation system.


Broan is the leading whole house ventilation solution provider for residential construction.


VentilatorsBroan Wall Ventilator


Whole house mechanical ventilation can be accomplished using a single ventilation fan, air exchanger, or another method; or use a combination of the same to achieve the required airflow.


Since the ventilation solution is running throughout the day, ASHRAE 62.2 requires that the ventilation solution has a sound level of 1 sone or less. This is to avoid any occupant dissatisfaction or annoyance which may cause them to turn the ventilation system off.



Fan Forced Ceiling HeatersBroan Fan Forced Ceiling Heaters


Fan-forced ceiling heaters or infrared bulb heat can make convenient combinations.


The reliable design and quality construction are all BROAN. Either way, you get energy-saving warmth in compact, easy-to-install units.


Radiant Cove & BulbBroan Radiant Cove & Bulb


It’s bad enough the sun sleeps in during the colder months making early mornings that much harder to rise. Add to it the thought of getting out of a shower into the brisk air and it’s enough to make anyone sink deeper under the covers.


Well, we can’t talk the sun into rising any earlier, but we can take the chill out the bathroom air with one of our supplemental radiant electric heaters. Whether it’s wall, ceiling, or baseboard-mounted, BROAN gives you one less reason to hit the snooze alarm.



Portable Ceramic HeatersBroan Portable Ceramic Heaters


Why heat the entire house when all you want is a bit of warmth to fight the chill when exiting a hot shower? That’s what happens in many homes. Unfortunately, by the time the house is warmed, you’ve long left the bathroom. Solution? Consider the benefits of installing instant, electric heat instead.


Portable Ceramic Heaters are designed to give you instant heat where you want it – when you need it most. And when you’re done, simply turn off the heat – they cool down just as quickly so no energy is wasted. BROAN has inconspicuous models that resemble registers. Pair them with one of our wall controls or timers for the ultimate heating convenience.


Register Style Fan—ForcedBroan Register Style Fan Forced


Register heaters. These powerful heaters are factory wired at 1000W, 1500W, and 2000W and can be easily converted to half-wattage for added versatility.


The low-wall mounting and register-look grille in a neutral white finish make them as inconspicuous as they are efficient.



Low Profile Fan—ForcedBroan Low Profile Fan Forced


Trimline Kickspace Heaters. If you don’t believe you have room for auxiliary heat, you haven’t seen trimline kickspace heaters.


They tuck under cabinet kick spaces, vanity bases, stairways, or any place where space is limited. Consider them for light-commercial applications such as ticket/toll booths and checkout counters where ducting isn’t possible.


Midsized Fan—Forced
