Broan-NuTone is pleased to be acknowledged by the readers of BUILDER magazine as the industry leader in residential ventilation for the second consecutive year, says Steve Swenerton, senior VP of marketing and retail sales, Broan-NuTone. “We develop, engineer and manufacture forward-thinking residential ventilation and built-in products that greatly improve the overall indoor environment. We are pleased that the building industry continues to consider our products as their preferred choice when looking for quality ventilation solutions for the homes they build.”
The study surveyed more than 10,000 builders, builder-developers and general contractors to construct a profile of brands used by the building industry. In the Bathroom Ventilation/Fans category, Broan and NuTone fans were rated as top brands in quality and claimed the top spots in both brand recognition and most used brands, being 30 percent more recognizable and used four times more often than their nearest competitor.
“Broan and NuTone are to be congratulated for their strong leadership showing in the bathroom ventilation fans category. They are the top two brands in ‘Brand Familiarity’, ‘Brand Used in the Past Two Years’, and ‘Brand Used Most’,” says Warren Nesbitt, executive director, Residential New Construction, Hanley Wood Business Media.
Broan and NuTone ventilation fans are available in many options such as recessed fan/lights, decorative fan/lights, ENERGY STAR® qualified fans and Ultra Silent™ fans. “The options are endless,” says Patrick Nielsen, marketing manager, ventilation fans, Broan-NuTone. “We continuously monitor consumer trends so builders, designers and homeowners never have to look elsewhere to find a ventilation fan to meet their needs.”
Additionally, many models of Broan and NuTone ventilation fans can help earn points or credits under the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USBGC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for Homes and the National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) Model Green Home Building Guidelines. Homeowners will appreciate that Broan and NuTone ENERGY STAR® qualified fans can use less than 10 kilowatt hours per year – or about $1.00 per year in electricity.
Over 80 percent of Broan-NuTone products sold in the U.S. and all Broan and NuTone ENERGY STAR® qualified ventilation fans are designed, engineered and manufactured in the U.S. which means the carbon footprint required to make products available to homeowners is less than most competitors. Purchasing and installing a ventilation fan from the brand leaders ensures consumers are getting a quality product as well as helping to support American jobs.
