As requirements for building envelopes increase, ventilation becomes vital for comfort and durability for a home.
Hope you don't mind a little bragging, but Broan-Nutone pioneered Energy Star qualified range hoods. That means you can have effective kitchen ventilation that also saves energy.
Programmable thermostats can reduce home heating costs by up to 35% and cooling costs by up to 25%.
As homes are becoming more tightly built, proper ventilation is increasingly critical for optimal indoor air quality.
The building science approach to green home certifications such as Passive House require full-time mechanical ventilation to ensure the home has fresh air flow.
Circulating conditioned air in a home with a ceiling fan spreads comfort and saves energy.
Ductless HVAC systems offer flexibility in design and installation for homeowners and building professionals, while delivering energy efficiency.
Variable speed units are one of the ways heating and cooling system manufacturers are winning the energy efficiency race.
If you're in the market for a range hood, it can be confusing. There are so many different types and styles on the market. And every manufacturer makes claims about how it will perform. It's tough to sort through all the information.
Being a “green” homeowner means buying less, reusing more, and making do with what the Earth gives us - recognizing both its limitations and our own.
