Ventilating Fans Granite Falls NC

Once annoyingly loud, bathroom ventilating fans are getting harder to hear and, in some cases, a lot harder to see. Some economy models still make a racket, but new fans from Broan-NuTone and Panasonic are setting the standard for quietness.

Keeping Ventilating Fans Quiet

Provided By:

Once annoyingly loud, bathroom ventilating fans are getting harder to hear and, in some cases, a lot harder to see. Some economy models still make a racket, but new fans from Broan-NuTone and Panasonic are setting the standard for quietness.

The sound levels of ventilating fans are measured in sones, with one sone being equivalent to the sound of a quiet refrigerator in a quiet kitchen, according to the Home Ventilating Institute. Most newer ventilating fans have sone ratings of between 0.05 and 2, but Broan-NuTone recently introduced its QT Series of bath fans with sone ratings of 1.5 to less than 0.03.

Broan-NuTone is also going to great lengths to hide its fans. The company's new recessed fan/light incorporates a ventilating fan into a lighting unit designed to blend seamlessly with a series of recessed lights. Because they practically disappear into the ceiling, these 2-sone units can be used throughout the home to help control humidity and keep the air fresh.

Panasonic is keeping it quiet also. The company's Whisper Ceiling and Whisper Wall fans come in a variety of sizes, with sone ratings of 3 to less than 0.03. Also available are Whisper Warm fan/light/heat/nightlight combination units, rated at about 1 sone each. For more info, visit http://www.broan.com and
