Broan SmartSense®

Intelligent Ventilation System

January 2008



Broan Ultra Silentventilation fans that once worked independently now work together as an integrated ventilation system in the Broan SmartSense® Intelligent Ventilation System. Because these fans ventilate from different locations, you’re assured of ongoing fresh air distribution throughout the home.

Why do I need to ventilate all day?

Proper ventilation exhausts stale indoor air and minimizes opportunities for mold and mildew growth. It also helps remove gases and particles not trapped by any filtration unit.With Broan SmartSense,® you get an automatic ventilation solution that minimizes the presence of pollutants such as household cleaners,

VOCs,carbon monoxide and off-gassing from building materials, carpets and other furnishings.

Broan SmartSense® meets intermittent and continuous ventilation requirements of ASHRAE* 62 and other related guidelines (including building codes derived from the ASHRAE standard).

How does it work?

The Broan SmartSense® system continually monitors and activates Broan Ultra Silentfans day and night, cycling them throughout the home to distribute fresh air. Broan Ultra Silentfans operate at a barely audible 0.3 and 0.7 sones, so they are ideal for any area of the home that might require additional ventilation. Even in a bedroom in the middle of the night, you’ll never know they’re running.

Installs as easily as an exhaust fan.

Simply recess the fan housing in the ceiling, vent with

6" duct to the exterior of the home and connect the power wires. No control wiring is necessary. After installation, program the controls to match the size of the home.

An economic alternative to other systems.

Broan SmartSense® utilizes exhaust ventilation fans normally installed in the home and automatically adjusts the total run-time based on square footage and number of bedrooms. Broan SmartSense® controls monitor normal manual fan operation, and adjust ventilation time as needed to optimize energy usage. Broan SmartSense® is more cost effective and energy efficient than other ventilation strategies such as

supply side systems that require the use of the home’s air handler. Because only one fan is running at a time, Broan SmartSense® uses less than 40 watts during ventilation cycles.

Broan SmartSense® meets intermittent and whole-building ventilation requirements of green building programs such as Leadership in Energy Efficient Design (LEED), NAHB Green Building Guidelines and ENERGY STAR Indoor Air Package.
