BROAN Long-lasting LED Fan/Light Offers Wider Spread of Light

HARTFORD, Wis., February 4, 2014 BROAN®, a leading manufacturer of residential ventilation products, introduces the Ventilation Fan/Light with Soft Surround™ LED Lighting Technology, its latest ENERGY STAR® qualified ventilation fan that offers rooms more complete light coverage.

Soft Surround LED Lighting Technology

“Soft Surround LED Lighting Technology brings high-quality, long-lasting lighting to our already industry-best bathroom ventilation technology,” says Patrick Nielsen, marketing manager, ventilation fans, BROAN. “The uniquely designed full-perimeter LED light delivers widespread lighting that is warm, comfortable and available immediately upon operation without warm-up time.”

 

The Ventilation Fan/Light with Soft Surround’s stylish and functional perimeter lens features an 800 lumen LED light engine and 3000K color temperature for lighting that enhances natural skin tones. The lens shape helps light reach the far corners of a room and the low-profile grille installs close to the ceiling for a clean, sleek look.

 

Nielsen explains the BROAN Ventilation Fan/Light with Soft Surround LED Lighting Technology (pictured below) is both attractive and functional. The fan/light is designed with high-quality lens diffusion to eliminate LED hot spots and beam light evenly throughout a room. With a 9-watt LED light housed in an integrated track, the fan/light is also extremely energy-efficient. Other benefits of the fan/light include:

 

  • Soft Surround LED Lighting TechnologyMaintenance-free convenience: The LED light lasts up to 25,000 hours, which means users will likely never have to replace it. This compares to compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs that last up to only 10,000 hours.

 

  • Easy installation: With a 4-inch duct connector and asmall footprint, this ventilation fan/light can be installed in tight ceiling areas with a minimum joist height of 2 inches by 6 inches. The fan is UL certified, allowing installation over bathtubs and showers when used with a GFCI circuit. It is also Insulation Contact (IC) rated for direct contact with insulation.

 

  • Superior operation: At a quiet 1.5 sones, this HVI-certified fan/light operates at 100 CFM for powerful air movement. The Soft Surround LED Lighting Technology reaches peak operation instantly as compared to CFL bulbs, which take time to ramp up to full brightness and accurate color temperature.

 

  • Safe and environmentally friendly: LED lights are free of mercury, making them safer for homeowners and the environment.

 

The Ventilation Fan/Light with Soft Surround LED Lighting Technology (model 791LED), is now available through BROAN distributors and has a manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) of $245.  For a complete list of all BROAN and NuTone ENERGY STAR qualified fans, visit www.BROAN.com or www.NuTone.com.
