With the addition of Recessed Fans with LED Lights, Broan-NuTone®, now offers the widest array of bathroom fan/light models on the market.
“We were the first to offer a Recessed Fan/Light, and now we have four distinct offerings in this series,” says Patrick Nielsen, marketing manager, ventilation fans, Broan-NuTone.
The company unveiled its first recessed model featuring incandescent lighting in 2004. Over the years, Broan-NuTone, the leader in residential ventilation, has continued to introduce models with industry-leading features.

2010 Humidity-sensing ENERGY STAR qualified Recessed Fan/Light

The bulb in the Broan-NuTone LED recessed fan/light will last at least 25,000 hours, compared with compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs, which last 3,000 to 15,000 hours, and incandescent bulbs, which last about 1,000 hours.
The other main advantage of LEDs is that, unlike CFLs, they don’t contain mercury. When a CFL breaks, homeowners are exposed to high levels of dangerous vaporizing mercury. Mercury can also be damaging to the environment if it ends up in landfills.
A further benefit of LEDs is their ability to offer greater dimming capabilities when paired with the right dimmer. LEDs also turn on instantly.
In addition to the LED Recessed Fan/Light, more than 75 BROAN and NuTone ENERGY STAR qualified ventilation fans that meet green building codes are designed, engineered, manufactured and customer supported in the U.S.
