Go Green with First ENERGY STAR Qualified Under-Cabinet Range Hoods in the U.S.

As homeowners become more concerned about reducing their carbon footprint and minimizing energy costs, Broan has introduced the first ENERGY STAR qualified under-cabinet range hoods to respond to homeowner demand for green products in the kitchen.
"As homeowners strive to improve the indoor air quality (IAQ) and comfort of their homes, they can be assured that the Broan QDE Series of range hoods will improve their indoor environment, while protecting and preserving the outdoor environment," according to Brian Wellnitz, marketing manager, kitchen ventilation, Broan-NuTone.
According to a number of leading organizations including the Home Ventilating Institute (HVI), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), exhausting pollutants and moisture from the home is one of the best ways to ensure better IAQ. The Broan QDE Series is a great option for spot ventilation of pollutants and moisture and offers consumers a variety of features to help maximize energy savings without having to sacrifice style
Additionally, the majority of Broan-NuTone products manufactured in the USA are used in the USA, which means the carbon footprint required to make products available to homeowners is less than some competitors. In fact, 80 percent of the products sold by Broan-NuTone are manufactured in the USA.
