Broan-NuTone® Offers American
Made ENERGY STAR® Fan
Hartford, Wis., January
19, 2010 –
So you think $1.00 doesn’t buy much anymore? Think again. Broan-NuTone®,
the industry leader in residential ventilation, offers a complete line
of ENERGY STAR® qualified ventilation fans for a healthier home
that brings new meaning to value.
For as little as $1.00 a year in energy to operate,
Broan-NuTone has packed its ENERGY
STAR® qualified ventilation fans with more IAQ punch than other
manufacturers. Whether it’s excess moisture, odor, indoor pollutants
or improving the overall quality of indoor air, you can’t beat
this value for a healthier home.
The ENERGY STAR lineup of Broan® and NuTone® ventilation fans
includes some 35 different models from the Ultra Silent™ Series,
recessed fan/lights, as well as heavy-duty models ideal for light commercial
installations and offices. The Ultra Silent Series includes basic bath
fans, fan/light/nightlight combinations and humidity sensing fan variations.
ENERGY STAR fan-only models typically use less than 10 kilowatt
hours per year.
“All of the ENERGY STAR qualified fans from Broan and NuTone
are certified by the Home Ventilating
Institute (HVI). The HVI label is a homeowner’s assurance
that the certified air flow and sound ratings for a certain ventilation
product are the results of testing by an independent laboratory,” says
Patrick Nielsen, marketing manager, ventilation fans, Broan-NuTone. “The
ENERGY STAR program uses HVI certification as a source of third-party
validation when evaluating whether or not a fan receives ENERGY STAR
qualified status. Put simply: the HVI certification and ENERGY
STAR qualified distinctions help guide homeowners to purchase the most
energy efficient fans on the market.”
According to ENERGY STAR officials, earning the ENERGY STAR means
fans meet the strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department
of Energy (DOE). ENERGY STAR qualified ventilation fans
that include light use 70 percent less energy on average than standard
models; these fans provide better efficiency and comfort with
less noise and use high performance motors that work better and last
longer than motors used in conventional models. In addition, they feature
high performance motors and improved blade design, providing better
performance and longer life.
“Because Broan-NuTone is the leading U.S. manufacturer of residential
ventilation, and has been manufacturing fans longer than any other
company in the U.S., we have played a key role in helping the industry
set the standard for HVI over the years,” says Nielsen. “When
a homeowner puts one of our ENERGY STAR qualified fans into their home,
they can rest assured that it’s one of the most energy-efficient
fans currently available.”
And all of this for only $1.00 a year in energy to operate.
In addition, all Broan-NuTone ENERGY STAR qualified ventilation
fans are designed, engineered, manufactured and customer supported
in the U.S. which also means the carbon footprint required
to make that fan available to homeowners is less than many of its
competitors coming from overseas.
“When you purchase an ENERGY STAR qualified fan from us, you’re
not only getting the best IAQ value on the market, but you’re
also helping to keep jobs in the U.S. And not just manufacturing jobs;
technical and customer support jobs as well. When you call
us, you’re speaking to a Broan-NuTone employee on American soil,
not overseas. This ‘Made in America’ commitment,
combined with the incredible IAQ value, makes the installation of a
Broan-NuTone ENERGY STAR fan a win-win,” says Nielsen.
