Broan® Launches Most Flexible, Most Efficient Exhaust Fan Platform on The Market
HARTFORD, Wis. (February 2019) – As the dangerous health effects of indoor air pollution continue to make news, many homeowners have been left searching for whole-house ventillation solutions with no avail. Broan®, a leading manufacturer of indoor air quality solutions that keep kitchens cleaner, bathrooms fresher, and the whole house healthier, came up with an answer. Broan is proud to introduce Flex DC; the most flexible and efficient exhaust fan platform on the market.
True to Its Name: Flexible DC Motor Allows Right-Sizing Ventilation For Any Size Room
Flex DC is truly flexible to any installation challenge; and gives the user more control over how they want to install the fan than almost any product on the market. The available Snap-Fit flange kit allows users to choose to install the housing with or without a flange. Grille channels allow for faster grille installations and the vertical alignment tabs have been moved to the corner of the housing so users can space the fan from the joist perfectly for drywall, all without opening up holes for air to escape.
Up to the Test: Meets Rigorous Codes and Standards:
Flexible to any building tightness limit, Flex DC is 50% more airtight than standard ventilation. The EZDuct connector creates an airtight seal from inside the fan, ensuring that the warm humid air it removes from the room does not leak out into the attic or crawl space. The TrueSeal damper technology reduces backdraft by over 50% when compared to standard fans. This means air from outside won’t work its way back into the home, resulting in a savings of 1 full HERs point when using Flex DC.
The Unsung Hero: Sone Level Less Than 1.0 At All CFM Speeds.
Flex DC is also compliant with ASHRAE 62.2 requirements. Operating at less than 1.0 sone at all operating points, this fan can meet whole home mechanical ventilation requirements. The ability to select between 50-80-110 CFM ensures that no matter how difficult the duct run is, Flex DC has the power to meet performance requirements. At 3X Energy Star requirements, power consumption will not be an issue.
