Bath and Ventilation Fans

Homes are now built much more efficiently than they once were, making them far less costly to heat and air condition. That said, having proper ventilation throughout the home is now imperative in order to provide a safe and comfortable living environment. BROAN ventilation fans provide the best solutions to ensure that contaminants are constantly removed from the indoors.

High quality BROAN ventilation fans offer a variety of performance levels, functionalities and styles to suit each need in any area of your home. With air movement, sound levels and ENERGY STAR® qualified efficiency certified by the Home Ventilating Institute (HVI), you can trust that BROAN fans will serve at every level. BROAN fans function as both traditional bath fans for removing humidity and odors on the spot, or as continuously running fans to constantly remove contaminants trapped throughout the home. Problems such as humidity, odors, dust, pet dander, and various chemicals will be eliminated. This type of ventilation is referred to as “whole house” and is increasingly being required to meet building codes or to meet the requirements of green building programs such as LEED, ENERGY STAR® for Homes or the National Green Building Standard.

A beautiful balance of elegance and performance

The details of your home's décor are important. Whether you seek a fan/light that speaks to your taste or prefer one that is less conspicuous, BROAN has solutions to help you meet your goals. Certain fan/light models offer the appearance of attractive ceiling-hugging light fixtures while quietly handling the room’s ventilation needs. They feature real glass globes and come in a variety of finishes such as brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze and chrome. For those that want their ventilation fan to totally disappear into the ceiling, BROAN offers a line of recessed fan/lights that look just like standard recessed light fixtures and can be placed right in the shower (which is the best place to capture the humidity). They blend in with existing similar fixtures and come in incandescent, fluorescent and even humidity sensing models.

Power to Get the Job Done

Decades of ventilation engineering expertise are what make it possible for BROAN-NuTone to offer the level of strong air exhaust you need for anything from a powder room to a large master bathroom or a workshop. Foggy mirrors, peeling wallpaper and overly humid environments can now be put to rest. A properly operating fan can also help prevent unsightly and unhealthy mold and mildew growth.

While there are standard rules for sizing ventilation fans for normal usage, more air movement (measured in cubic feet per minute or CFM) is generally better as it will clear humidity, heat and odors faster. For whole house ventilation solutions, BROAN is the best choice for powerful fans to meet the needs and requirements of any size home.

Any Application Including Replacement/Retrofit

Efficiency aside, today’s tight construction leads to air contaminants taking longer to dissipate on their own, and so requires powered ventilation throughout the home. Examples of great applications/locations include the kitchen—over sinks or cooking prep areas, utility/laundry rooms, walk-in closets, media rooms, craft rooms/workshops and garages. BROAN offers a wide variety of functions including lights, nightlights, heaters and humidity or motion sensing as well as performance levels and styles. No matter the room or area, BROAN has an appealing solution.

Because BROAN-NuTone has been an industry leader for so long, there is a very good chance that your currently-installed fan is also by BROAN. If so, it is highly likely that we have an easy replacement solution, and probably have a model in the same size housing that you currently have mounted.

Ultra Quiet Operation

BROAN’s latest engineering technology enables the design of fans that are essentially silent. These fans come in a variety of styles and options including lights, nightlights and heaters as well as models with humidity or motion sensing or smartly linked operation to meet whole house ventilation standards. Whereas a typical fan is rated at about 4.0 Sones, BROAN has models that are certified by the Home Ventilating Institute (HVI) at less than 0.3 Sones. A fan like this will not only make your experience more enjoyable, it will also be pleasing to others in the house who are still sleeping.

Whole House Solutions & ASHRAE 62.2

BROAN-NuTone ventilation fans are a great solution to meet the now frequent whole house ventilation requirements and energy efficient building codes brought on by green building programs such as LEED and ENERGY STAR®. Most of these programs reference a widely-used residential ventilation standard known as ASHRAE 62.2. ASHRAE refers to the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers, the group that developed the standard. Since these requirements typically call for a fan to run continuously, the power, energy efficiency and quiet operation of BROAN premium ventilation products are a perfect fit. They can be a two-for-one solution to both traditional and whole house ventilation needs.

Widest Variety of ENERGY STAR® Models

Choosing an ENERGY STAR® ventilation fan saves money as it uses up to 65% less energy than standard fans and cost less than one dollar per year to operate with normal usage. As newer homes are now being built tighter for efficiency, ENERGY STAR® has become the wiser and more popular option, since fans must operate for longer periods of time to keep indoor air fresh and clean. BROAN-NuTone offers more ENERGY STAR® models than anyone in the industry including fans, fan/lights, humidity or motion sensing models, recessed and decorative fan/lights. Additionally, BROAN features SmartSense®–a great solution to meet today’s whole house ventilation requirements. Whole house ventilation solutions require fans to be running much if not all of the time, for which ENERGY STAR® efficiency is the right choice.
