Save energy without sacrificing design

Save energy without sacrificing design

(NAPS)-One way to save some green in your wallet is to buy green ENERGY STAR(r)-qualified products.
The ENERGY STAR program alone helped Americans save enough energy in 2010 to avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 33 million cars-all while saving nearly $18 billion on their utility bills.
On average, 25 percent of in-home energy is used by appliances and lighting. That's why using ENERGY STAR products is a win-win situation for homeowners and the reason that the popularity of such products continues to grow.
In response, manufacturers have created an ever-expanding range of appliances that combine energy efficiency with design appeal. For example, Broan-NuTone, the leader in providing ENERGY STAR residential ventilation solutions, now offers more than 50 ENERGY STAR-qualified ventilation solutions to choose from.
There are energy-efficient solutions for kitchen, bath and whole-house ventilation needs, helping to rid the home of excess humidity, odors and indoor pollutants to help improve indoor air quality.
The BROAN and NuTone lineup includes ceiling fans, range hoods, ventilation fans and fan/light combinations. These ventilation fan models use less than 10 kilowatt- hours per year with normal use and only cost around $1 per year in energy costs!
There are a variety of energy-efficient range hood options to fit both ventilation and decor needs. Also, select indoor and outdoor models of the NuTone ceiling fan collection are ENERGY STAR qualified and can lower energy usage associated with operating costs while improving the quality of the air circulating in and outside the home.
All of these products are certified by the Home Ventilating Institute (HVI), which assures homeowners that the certified airflow and sound ratings are the result of testing by an independent laboratory.
