Broan-NuTone: Smart Ventilation System

February 12, 2007


The SmartSense® intelligent ventilation system improves air quality throughout the home, automatically and efficiently. This ventilation technology has combined SmartSense and Ultra Silent™ ventilation fans to create an integrated ventilation system. The fans are installed throughout the home wherever ventilation is needed. Then, a SmartSense control is connected to each fan. One control is designated as the master, and using an American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers formula based on the house size and number of bedrooms, the ventilation rate is entered into this control. The other controls communicate with the master control through the use of Insteon™ technology, a wireless home control technology that digitally communicates over the power lines in the house. The master control monitors the normal/manual usage of the fans. It calculates the volume of air ventilated and deducts this from the total ventilation required. If necessary, it will intermittently operate fans throughout the home to achieve optimal ventilation and distribution of fresh air, says the company.
