Overture™ is the only fully automated fresh air system that monitors and optimizes indoor air
HARTFORD, Wis. (January 31, 2023) – Broan-NuTone®, today, announces the introduction of Overture™, the first and only fully automated, cloud-connected, whole-home indoor air quality system that monitors and optimizes air in the home. Overture monitors the air quality in the home, then automatically turns on the connected supply and exhaust ventilation when air quality levels are low, allowing homeowners to breathe easily when it comes to managing the health of their home. It is easily managed by a mobile app and is integrated with Amazon Alexa and Google. This system is one of the latest innovations from the leader in whole-home ventilation products as the company continues to innovate the industry in response to customer demands, environmental impacts and technological advancements.
With an increased awareness and heightened concern of airborne threats in the home, owners have sought to better understand the multiple sources of poor indoor air and implement advancements in ventilation systems such as range hoods, bath fans and whole home fresh air systems. Now more than ever, indoor air quality is a high priority for homeowners and builders alike. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air, and we spend 90 percent of our time inside. If air quality is poor, it can have short-term and long-term health effects ranging from irritated eyes and a stuffy nose to more severe issues such as respiratory diseases. This information impacts builders’ material and system choices for the home, eclipsing other criteria like design and aesthetics.
Overture is fully integrated into a home’s supply and exhaust ventilation and can be installed in new construction or remodels without needing an incremental hub, meaning it can be controlled from the Cloud. Overture operates with new or existing products using specialized switches and sensors,
allowing for easy installation and control from a mobile device. The system provides a fully customizable, automated indoor air quality system that delivers up-to-the-minute reporting on the home’s indoor air quality and how the system maintains constant fresh airflow. When sensors detect a rise in indoor air pollution caused by increased humidity, VOCs, smoke, carbon dioxide and small particles (sometimes referred to as PM2.5), the system automatically switches on the appropriate Broan-NuTone ventilation fan, rangehood, ERV/HRV or supply fan to eliminate the pollutant while simultaneously bringing in fresh, clean air from outside. The entire system is easily managed with an app, allowing the user to see live snapshots of a home’s indoor air quality,
individual rooms’ air quality and historical data.
“At Broan-NuTone, we are dedicated to helping consumers improve their indoor air quality and Overture provides an easy way to monitor and maintain healthy air in the home,” said Edwin Bender, VP of Marketing, Broan-NuTone.
