The average rating on "ease of installation" does indicate any fault of the 164. Although the installation steps are simply stated, significant effort is necessary to complete ..The heat lamps are controlled by a timer switch without an "always on" position as a safety precaution. So far the unit performs well, as it has only been in use for a few weeks.
I would prefer a schematic type diagram for wiring instructions.Ooverall I am pleased with the Broan 164
.
Yes, I recommend this product.

can this unit run off a 15 amp breaker im using about 10 amps at the most if everything is on right know?

With 2-250 watt heat bulbs on an the fan running, the unit is rated to draw 4.5 amps,
Your 15 amp breaker should handle the 164 plus the other load.

On the 164 model, what is the yellow wire for? Can the fan, the heater, and the lamp all run off the same switch?

The yellow wire is for the fan The fan and bulbs can be controlled from a single switch although I don't recommend it, because the fan would defeat the purpose of the heaters. You want the heat directed downward, not exhausted out. I prefer that the heaters be controlled via a timer switch.
