It may seem like a contradiction, but sometimes a room with an exhaust fan also needs a heater. This is often the case in a drafty bathroom where you want proper ventilation to keep the indoor air fresh and eliminate moisture. In the winter one solution is to add a separate heating unit, another is to install a WhisperWarm unit that combines an exhaust fan with a heater. It has a built-in damper to prevent backdraft, which helps to prevent outside air from coming through the fan.

To replace an existing bathroom vent with a new unit that combines venting and heating, an electrician will charge $367, which includes the unit and its installation. If you have electrical skills and tools, you can make the replacement for $185, the cost of the unit, and pocket a 49 percent saving. If there's not an existing vent and a new electrical line is needed, it will cost considerably more and should be left to a licensed electrician.
