HARTFORD, Wis., February 4, 2014 – Broan-NuTone®, the leading manufacturer of residential ventilation products, has introduced a new humidity-sensing wall control (model 82W). The new wall control maximizes the performance of most BROAN®and NuTone® ventilation fans by automatically detecting and controlling high levels of moisture.
“The benefits of the new wall control are twofold,” says Patrick Nielsen, marketing manager – ventilation fans, Broan-NuTone. “Consumers will appreciate that it can better control high humidity levels and problems associated with them such as annoying fogged mirrors and mold formation. For architects, builders and engineers, the control offers an added ventilation solution that meets the latest code requirements.”
The updated control reacts faster than other models to provide the best air quality and comfort for users. Excess humidity can facilitate the growth of mold and bacteria, leading to respiratory problems like asthma and other serious health concerns.
Now, with advanced technology, the new wall control can sense a rapid rise in humidity levels and automatically turn on the fan until the level of humidity returns to a normal, healthy state. An LED light indicates when the fan is operating.
Other benefits of the new wall control include:
- Adjustability: Both the relative humidity and rapid-rise sensibility levels can be user-adjusted to optimize operation for a specific bathroom.
- Manual control: Although the fan can start automatically with humidity-sensing technology, the wall control also comes with an on/off switch, allowing users to operate the system manually.
- Energy efficiency: The control automatically stops the fan after a user-adjustable time delay so it only operates when needed, allowing users to conserve energy and in turn, save more money on utility bills.
- Easy installation: The wall control operates with most BROAN and NuTone bathroom ventilation fan models and can be used for both new construction and retrofit installations.
The new humidity-sensing ventilation fan wall control will be available in June 2014. For a complete list of all BROAN and NuTone ENERGY STAR® qualified fans, visit www.BROAN.com or www.NuTone.com.
