HARTFORD, Wis., January 28, 2013
– Broan-NuTone®, the leader in residential ventilation for ENERGY STAR® qualified products, has introduced an industry-exclusive product selector to help
builders, contractors and architects select code- and green building program-compliant ventilation solutions for the home.
The new CodeKey™ Whole House Mechanical Ventilation Specifier tool
encompasses all of the growing number of statewide codes that affect ventilation standards into one user-friendly industry-first online tool.
“Broan-NuTone is the first manufacturer to offer assistance to builders and other professionals who need to abide by new ventilation codes but may be
unsure of which ventilation solution is most appropriate for a project,” says Patrick Nielsen, marketing manager, ventilation fans, Broan-NuTone. “With
the new CodeKey feature, Broan-NuTone is not only offering product solutions for customers, but also offering information solutions.”
Broan-NuTone’s CodeKey helps professionals identify code-compliant, customized whole-house ventilation systems based on factors such as site location,
square footage, number of bedrooms and whether or not the home is ENERGY STAR V3 or LEED® certified.
The tool also has several slider controls that allow users to select the importance (on a scale) of certain factors in fan selection, including low
first cost, low energy usage and reduced noise. Although most of the available solutions are for ventilation fans, CodeKey also can display results for
Broan-NuTone’s range hoods and HRV/ERV products. Once the user has set all preferences, he or she can compare solutions, print out specifications and
choose an applicable solution.
“CodeKey is the fastest and most user-friendly way for professionals to ensure that the ventilation in their residential projects is meeting statewide
codes or green building program requirements,” continues Nielsen. “With new states continually adopting ventilation standards, this tool is relevant
for professionals nationwide.”
