HARTFORD, Wis., Jan. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing in the tradition of best-in-class ventilation products, 36 models in the Broan-NuTone ULTRA Green™ series today were awarded the ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2015 designation.
ENERGY STAR awards products with this designation across 12 categories each year.
The products recognized in each category are those that deliver cutting-edge energy efficiency along with the latest in technological innovation.
Broan-NuTone has stylish ventilation options to fit any situation, from a retrofit to new construction, and leads the industry with the widest variety of ventilation products available.
"We are focused on developing products that exceed consumer expectations," said Patrick Nielsen, marketing manager, household ventilation, Broan-NuTone. "This commitment encompasses everything from style and design to energy efficiency, performance and cost savings."
In fact, the ULTRA Green ventilation fans are almost 10 times more efficient than the basic Energy Star standard requirement. This is especially important for fans being used for 24-hour whole-house ventilation, a building code requirement in a growing number of U.S. states.
"Proper ventilation, especially bathroom ventilation, is crucial to the quality of air in the home and can also ultimately save the homeowner from thousands of dollars in damage caused by moisture and mold," Nielsen said. "It's great to be recognized for excellence in this area once again."
The ULTRA Green ventilation fan series is available in both single speed and multispeed versions. Multispeed models are ideal for meeting whole-house mechanical ventilation requirements in green building programs such as LEED, ENERGY STAR or building codes such as California Title 24. Since whole-house fans may run all the time, choosing an efficient ENERGY STAR-qualified fan is especially important. For even greater ease of use, models with ULTRA Sense™ Humidity or Motion Sensing Technology will automatically adjust to maximum CFM levels when the need is detected.
