Air Care Ventilation Fan Replacement Parts

As time progresses and the appliances in our homes age, it becomes increasingly difficult and expensive to keep our home up-to-date. Built-in counter top blenders begin to wear out, range hoods lose the air filtering capabilities they once had, and bathroom ventilation fans become loud and noisy; not to mention the appliances don’t look as good as they once did. Sometimes just a simple bathroom fan cover replacement is all that is needed to bring life back to your home.

However, there are a few underlying issues that prevent us from maintaining our appliances. The issues are that some replacement parts, like bathroom fan covers, are difficult to find, or the product has been discontinued for over 25 years. The most common problem is the original manufacturer is completely out of business and doesn’t offer their products anymore.

Air Care is a prime example of a company who sold thousands of bathroom ventilation systems and kitchen range hoods, but then was eventually bought out by Broan. Since the acquisition of Air Care, they ceased production on their range hoods and bathroom fan systems. Along with the production halt, the replacements parts for these products also quickly disappeared from the market due to lack of availability and production. As a result, many people like my friend Dave have had a hard time finding the parts they need to fix their appliances.

In the great state of Alabama, my friend Dave is in the market of purchasing older homes, renovating them, and eventually turning them for a profit. One of the most common issues in purchasing homes is updating their appliances, especially bathroom fan systems. No one wants to completely replace an existing bathroom fan because that requires finding a fan with the correct amount of CFM, the right dimensions to fit the pre-existing hole, and finding one that gives the bathroom a great look. Not to mention new systems can be very costly.

Additionally, this also takes a large amount of time to install an entire new bathroom ventilation system. This process often requires cutting new holes in the ceiling dry wall and even running new wires to power the new unit. This is why Dave would rather find replacement parts and purchase a new grille rather than a new system.

However, finding Air Care replacement parts is not as easy as it used to be. When searching for these replacement parts, many web results claim that they have the parts for your specific model. However, when the results are explored further, you find that those websites don’t actually have the parts, or they are so confusing you’re not sure if you are actually looking at the part for your specific model. There is nothing more frustrating than purchasing something you need and come to find out later that it is the wrong part.

Luckily, because of Dave, I have been on the prowl searching for the few remaining Air Care replacement parts.  I know that there are thousands of people just like Dave who are looking for these parts but have a hard time finding them and are unsure they are receiving the correct ones.

After multiple years of searching, I finally compiled listings of all the Air Care models and their associated parts to help others like my friend Dave. Hopefully these listings will save you the hassle of installing a new system and save a lot of money in the process.

Located below is a small selection of the most common Air Care bathroom fan models and their associated parts. There are many more models listed on this site that have complete listings of the replacement parts available.

Humid air gathers together and leaves a layer of water on the wall. After the course of a few days without proper ventilation, your bathroom becomes the perfect environment for mold.
Fixing your bathroom fan is easy if you know what you’re looking for. The most common part to break in a bathroom fan is the motor. After many years of operation, the motor naturally wears out and needs to be replaced. Below is a list of Nutone bathrooms fan and their replacement parts.

Nutone Bathroom Heater: A Better Morning

Overview: Nutone bathroom heaters are one of the greatest inventions made in history. If you have experienced freezing bathrooms in the morning, the only solution is to get a bathroom heater. There are many different types of ceiling bathroom fans; choosing the right one for you is important.

Many of us live life missing out on simple pleasures. After living in Idaho for many years, one thing I missed out on was a bathroom heater. I never knew that these miracles existed and how wonderful they could be.
In my first winter experience in Idaho, outside temperatures in the morning were commonly -5 degrees. The bitter cold air made my house freezing. The worst part about a frigid house is that it made morning showers dreadful. As soon as you step out of the shower, you are hit with a wave of frosty air that is amplified by the beads of water on your skin. My house heater simply wasn’t enough to spare me from ice-cold floors. Just one step is enough to chill you to the bone.
If you’ve ever gotten out of a hot shower and stepped on an ice-cold floor, you understand where I’m coming from.Every morning was unpleasant. 

I can’t do this… I feel like my house is torturing me every morning. The arctic air is here to haunt me for the next few months… I’ve got to do something about this.

I started to think about how I can change this. Then the idea hit me.

A heater! A simple little box heater would do just fine!

I grabbed my car keys and drove to the store. After 5 minutes of walking around in the store, I found a cheap, little white heater and an extension cord.

This will do perfectly!

I brought the heater home and set it on the bathroom counter. The next morning was a complete change. I woke up around 7:15 am, plugged my heater into the wall, and closed the bathroom door to let it warm up.

I hope this heater is well worth my time.

I walked into my kitchen and ate a small breakfast. After I finished eating, I walked back into the bathroom to take a shower. When I opened the door, a wave of hot air hit me in the face.

This is what I have been looking for. It’s so warm and cozy!

I quickly closed the door and took one of the warmest showers I have ever had. After finishing my shower, the next test was getting out of the shower. I was expecting it to only be a little different than before; not extremely cold, but enough for it to still make my mornings terrible.

I opened the shower door and was pleasantly surprised.

It’s warm! Oh, thank goodness it’s warm!

All I had to do now was step on the floor. I slowly extended my foot towards the tile floor. The anticipation of what I feared rattled my mind.

Oh, please let this be just as warm. I don’t want to be freezing anymore.

My foot touched the floor and an immediate feeling of relief overcame me.

Yes! The floor is warm! No more being tortured by the bitter cold.

Each morning after that was great. I went from hating morning showers in a cold bathroom to loving them. Morning showers in a warm and cozy bathroom are one of the best experiences in life. I never knew that a heater in your bathroom could work so many wonders.

Even though this small room heater was working well, there were a few issues. The biggest problem was that this room heater was very expensive to run. I thought that it was definitely worth the money to have a warm bathroom, but I also would like to save more on power. The second issue was that I had to plug in the heater into an extension cord every day. I didn’t want to take the risk of possible water splashing on the heating unit, or water getting on the connection between the heater and extension cord. Overall, it was inconvenient, hazardous, and inefficient.

After speaking to my friends about my new wonderful mornings, they told me that you can buy professional and power saving heaters for your bathroom. These heaters are simply installed in your bathroom ceiling and are turned on by a simple switch.

If I bought a professional bathroom heater, I could save on electricity, remove my hazardous heater, and increase the value of my home. Purchasing one of these units was a no-brainer. Making my mornings perfect was one of the most important things to me. If I started with a great morning, that great morning would carry on throughout my day.

The new quest now is to find which bathroom heater is the best for my situation. There are thousands of different kinds of bathroom heaters. Some models are just heaters while others have certain additions to them. The most common addition to the heaters is a bathroom light.

In order to find the appropriate bathroom fan, I had to determine what I wanted.
I concluded that I the most important factors to me are:
  •       Size
  •       Power usage (too much power usage will cause high electric bills)
  •       Noise level (some fans are very loud)
  •      Weight

 A feature that everyone overlooks is the noise level. Some fans can be extremely loud and annoying every time you turn them on. If the fan sounds terrible, you won’t be inclined to use it every day.

After a few weeks of searching, I finally found a fan that suited my needs. I decided to purchase the Nutone 9417DN. This model has a light, power saving options, durable parts, and sufficient heating capabilities. While there were many other options that were sufficient, this model seemed perfect. For those who are more interested in the bathroom heaters that I considered, I have compiled a list of them below.

If you haven’t experienced the joy of a Nutone bathroom heater, then today is the day! Transform your mornings into something spectacular!

A Rare Find: Aubrey Fan Replacement Parts

Our home is a place where we spend a large amount of our time. Because of this, we naturally like to decorate our homes, purchase new furniture, and do maintenance on our home. Some of my favorite equipment in my home is my Broan range hood and my stylish Nutone bathroom fan. However, one of the major issues with some of these products is that they become obsolete or no longer produced by the manufacturer. As a result, finding replacement parts can be extremely difficult.

In my bathroom, I have an Aubrey brand model that has been discontinued for many years. Sadly, my bathroom fan motor went out and I wanted to replace it rather than purchase an entire new unit.

After a little research, I discovered that my specific model hasn’t been in production for over 8 years. My chances of finding a complete new one would be near impossible. The only other option would be to purchase a new system. If I decided to buy a different bathroom fan, I would have to worry about finding one that is the right size, style, and color.

It would be terrible to purchase a new unit and have to repair my bathroom wall where the old one once was. Even after repairs, my bathroom still wouldn’t look the same again.

I determined that I did not want to tear my bathroom apart for a new fan, so I decided to search for replacement parts. After surfing the internet for hours, I came to the conclusion that Aubrey fan replacement parts did not exist. Some sites claimed they had replacement parts, but then I quickly became discouraged when I found out that they actually didn’t have any parts at all.

Not being able to find a replacement motor meant that I had to do what I didn’t want to… purchase a different bathroom fan. I still disliked this idea and continued searching.

No more than 20 minutes later, I found exactly what I was looking for! I found entire listings of replacement parts for Aubrey fan models. I felt that there must be a lot of people like me who do not want to hassle with purchasing a whole new bathroom fan system when it could easily be fixed with replacement parts.
To help those who are searching for Aubrey replacement parts, I have taken the time to compile a list of models and their replacement parts. I really hope that this can be useful and spare people the hassle of making a new fan fit where an old one once was.
