Let ventilation fans with LED lighting shine in your bathroom

To reduce home energy use, bathroom ventilation fans featuring LED lights have been a big hit in the market. The LED lights offer a number of advantages for homeowners and building professionals that make life easier for everyone.

The main advantage of the LED recessed fan/lights is the long-lasting LED bulb. There is a good chance the homeowner will never have to change this bulb. For instance, 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. While CFLs take some time to ramp up, LEDs illuminate fully right away.

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.
