HARTFORD, Wis., Nov. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Broan-NuTone, a Nortek, Inc. company (Nasdaq: NTK), has been recognized for its product innovation and quality by The Home Depot and This Old House. The Home Depot named Broan-NuTone one of 10 companies honored with its 2015 Innovation Awards. In addition, This Old House has chosen the Broan Sensonic™ Speaker Fan from Broan-NuTone as one of its Top 100 Products of 2015.

The Home Depot named the NuTone EZFit™ Ventilation Fan from Broan-NuTone as one of the top 10 products for its 2015 Innovation Awards. Ultimately, it was the NuTone EZ80N EZFit Ventilation Fan's features of easy installation that set it apart. The EZ80N can be easily installed room-side with no attic access required thanks to its EZLock™ tabs. The tabs secure the fan directly to the ceiling drywall, eliminating joist or truss mounting.

According to a press release from The Home Depot, the retailer's annual award "recognizes the most revolutionary new products that provide true benefits to consumers and the companies that exceeded expectations in sales, service and program execution."

In addition, the Broan Sensonic Speaker Fan has been named one of the Top 100 Products of 2015 by This Old House. Each year, the editors of This Old House review products and choose the top 100 of the year that they feel make consumers' homes smarter and more stylish.

The Broan Sensonic Speaker Fan allows consumers to easily enjoy music or their favorite audio, wirelessly, from their own devices. As an existing bathroom feature, the fan allows the speakers to blend in with décor, prevent clutter on countertops and storage spaces, and free up much needed bathroom outlets.
