The US Environmental Protection Agency has awarded Delta Breez with a 2018 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year - Sustained Excellence Award!
We are honored to be an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for the third year in a row, and to be further recognized with the Sustained Excellence Award. Delta is a global leading provider of DC brushless fans, a key technology for improving the efficiency of a wide range of solutions, including its line of Delta Breez ventilation fans. In fact, 113 (96 percent) of Delta’s Breez ventilation fans are ENERGY STAR-qualified, and 21 (18 percent) were rated ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2017, surpassing ENERGY STAR efficiency requirements by as much as 339 percent.
“The 2018 ENERGY STAR Partners of the Year have demonstrated real leadership, showing how American families and businesses can save energy, save money, and reduce air emissions,” said Bill Wehrum, EPA Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation.
In 2016 alone, ENERGY STAR-certified products, homes, buildings, and plants helped Americans save over $30 billion in energy costs and approximately 400 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity while achieving broad emissions reductions.
The 2018 Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Awards are bestowed upon companies and other organizations demonstrating continued leadership in energy efficiency and commitment to the ENERGY STAR program. Winners hail from small, family-owned businesses to Fortune 500 organizations – representing energy-efficient products, services, new homes, and buildings in the commercial, industrial, and public sectors.
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 2017, 14 model of Delta Breez product line are recognized as such.
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.
