$1.00 A Year Buys Unprecedented Healthy Home Help


Broan-NuTone® Offers American Made ENERGY STAR® Fan Line-Up

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.
