Hartford, Wis., April 16, 2010 – Responding to consumer demand for an unobtrusive and inconspicuous ventilation solution for various parts of the home, Broan® and NuTone® offer a full line of Recessed Fan/Lights made in Hartford, Wis. Recipient of 10 industry awards, the ENERGY STAR® qualified Recessed Fan/Lights, provide consumers with powerful ventilation and excellent lighting options while offering design flexibility. The line now includes an ENERGY STAR® qualified model available with SensAire® technology to help ensure moisture is effectively exhausted at the source automatically.

"Great for use in new construction or major remodels, these quiet and stylish fan/lights are a great addition to media rooms, bathrooms, utility or laundry rooms, craft rooms, smoking rooms, closets, hallways and in kitchens over sinks and countertop areas," says Patrick Nielsen, marketing manager, ventilation fans, Broan-NuTone®. "Homeowners also will appreciate that the trim design of the easy-to-install unit matches that of major recessed light manufacturers allowing the fan/light to seamlessly blend in with a series of recessed lights in any room of the home."

New to the product line, a humidity sensing version of the fan/light is now available that automatically turns ON to exhaust excess moisture and turns OFF once the job is done. This model provides consistent and appropriate ventilation without occupant interaction. If excess humidity is detected, the fan will automatically operate until it is removed.

With energy costs being a key concern for homeowners, they'll be pleased to know that they can operate the ENERGY STAR qualified models for just $1 a year. Additionally, as good indoor air quality (IAQ) continues to rank high on the list of homeowner priorities, they can rest assured knowing that Broan-NuTone has the widest variety of quality ventilation solutions in the industry. Whether it's excess moisture, odor, indoor pollutants or improving the overall quality of indoor air, you can't beat this value for a healthier home.

By incorporating a fan and recessed light into one unit, this ventilation solution alleviates the need for two separate installations, offering homeowners a great convenience by providing a singular ventilation and lighting solution with an option for humidity control.
