LOCAL CONTRACTOR WINS BROAN-NUTONE ULTRA PRO CHALLENGE AT ELECTRICAL WHOLESALERS IN STRATFORD, CONN


||
HARTFORD, Wis., October 10, 2013 – A Fairfield, Conn., contractor won the ULTRA Pro Challenge at Electrical Wholesalers in Stratford, Conn., on Wednesday. Many local contractors competed to install an ULTRA Ventilation Fan, a revolutionary bathroom ventilation product, in the quickest time. Winner Kosta Proskinitopoulos of Fairfield, Conn., with an installation time of 4 minutes, 4 seconds, received a $500 Cabela’s gift certificate.

 

 Proskinitopoulos now ties for eighth nationally among all ULTRA Pro Challenge winners. At the conclusion of the tour, the eight contractors (see current national rankings below) with the quickest times among the location winners will win a trip for two to the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas in February 2014, where they will compete for the grand prize of a 2014 Ford F150 Pickup Truck.

 

The event is one of 60 stops along the national ULTRA Pro Challenge tour, hosted by Broan-NuTone, the leader in residential ventilation. The competition gives contractors across the country hands-on experience with the ULTRA Ventilation Fans, which install up to 60 percent faster in retrofits and up to 20 percent faster in new construction than comparable fans, increasing profitability. ULTRA Fans feature the fastest, easiest, most universal installation to save contractors time, and they also help meet stringent green building and ventilation codes. Homeowner benefits include extremely quiet operation, unbelievable performance and, now, the ability to detect humidity or motion.

 

The ULTRA Pro Challenge includes locations in major cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York. Hosted by Broan-NuTone distributors, the events are open exclusively to contractors. At the events, contractors may choose to earn recommended ULTRA Pro Contractor status and be included in an online ULTRA Pro Contractor locator program. The ULTRA Pro Contractor locator is designed to help homeowners find a professional contractor that is able to assist them with their bathroom ventilation needs.

 

After 39 events in the ULTRA Pro Challenge, the contractors with the quickest times among the location winners, and who are still eligible for the grand prize, are as follows.
