Ventilating fans

An ENERGY STAR certified ventilating fan or exhaust fan (also known as a ventilation or vent fan) with lighting uses 70% less energy, on average, than a standard model. This includes bathroom/utility room fans and range hoods. Ventilating fans that have earned the ENERGY STAR Most Efficient designation are the best of the best – they’ll save you more energy than standard models. Saving energy saves money and reduces your carbon footprint.

Key features

  • Use high performance motors and improved blade designs, meaning they’re more efficient, less noisy, and last longer.
