It has been known for a long time that 100W incandescent bulbs were going the way of the dodo bird. Broan decided that it should still design products for 100W incandescent bulbs and nothing else. This fixture cannot handle a 100W-equivalent CFL or 100W-equivalent LED. They are too big for the fixture. These type of bulbs touch the nightlight - something that is probably not a good safe. Trying a 100W-equivalent halogen incandescent would probably melt the plastic. A 75W-equivalent LED fits, but, it is less light than a 100W bulb. I feel cheated by Broan since I cannot use the fixture with its full capability. If Broan wants to sell this fixture, it should include a lifetime supply of 100W bulbs.
The 4W nightlight is just barely adequate once the plastic cover is put in place.
The fan sound is acceptable and not too noisy.
No, I do not recommend this product.

100W Incandescent replacement - CFL or Halogen && Nighltlight

This fixture cannot handle a 100W-equivalent CFL. The CFL touches the nightlight. BAD DESIGN!!!!!! Broan, knowing that 100W bulbs are going the way of the dodo bird, should have taken CFLs into consideration.

Now, can I use a 100W-equivalent halogen bulb? I haven't seen any 100W LED bulbs around that are the same size as incandescent bulbs.

Also, can I use a 7W nightlight? The specs sow 4W bulbs, which are nearly useless as a nightlight once the plastic cover is installed.
