ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that identifies products in over 60 categories which meet rigorous energy efficiency standards. Started in 1992, ENERGY STAR is now an internationally recognized label for U.S.-originated products that reduce greenhouse gas emissions without sacrificing performance or quality. ENERGY STAR qualified products help to protect the environment by reducing energy consumption, which in turn reduces greenhouse gas emissions and saves consumers money on utility bills.
As an ENERGY STAR partner, Delta is committed to environmental protection and strives to create products meeting and surpassing current standards in energy efficiency. Delta Breez prides itself on delivering ENERGY STAR qualified products, some of which exceed the ENERGY STAR efficiency requirement by over 367%. With 37 models available in 2015 for evaluation, 36 models were awarded the ENERGY STAR recognition.
ENERGY STAR Most Efficient is a designation recognizing and advancing the most efficient products among those that qualify for the ENERGY STAR label. ENERGY STAR Most Efficient products reduce greenhouse gas emissions by meeting rigorous energy efficiency performance levels set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
While 2.5% of all residential bathroom ventilation fans on the market were recognized as ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2016, 18% of the Delta Breez product line was recognized as such. And of Delta Breez’s 37 models available in 2015 for evaluation, 7 were awarded the ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2016 recognition.
ASHRAE 62.2 publishes a national standard that applies to single-family homes and multifamily dwellings to ensure proper ventilation and acceptable indoor air quality. The standards are commonly referenced in building codes and widely accepted by architects, engineers and mechanical contractors. ASHRAE 62.2 addresses minimum ventilation effectiveness and noise level performance of continuous and intermittent mechanical exhaust systems.
The following Table summarizes the ventilation air requirements in CFM for various floor areas:
Most Delta Breez fan models are ASHRAE 62.2 compliant for both intermittent and continuous run applications. This means that Breez fans are operable according to 62.2 guidelines for airflow and meet the minimum noise level requirements.
HVI, the Home Ventilating Institute, is an organization that runs a standardized testing and certification program for a wide range of home ventilating products. Products are tested to qualify for various performance parameters and undergo random verification. All tests are conducted in third party facilities that are independent of any manufacturing company, and testing procedures are designed by HVI members according to internationally recognized guidelines. All Delta Breez ventilation fans are HVI lab tested and certified.
