Yesterday, one of our rookies asked me if we carried Broan products.I was happy to say that we do. Let me tell YOU about it, in case you were not aware.

Broan specializes in ventilation products and has done so since 1932. They are most known for their range hoods and bathroom fans. We have access to their full product line from Range hoods are available from inexpensive options popular with rental houses to high end units for designer homes. A wide variety of bath fans are also available.

The Broan 30 inch range hood is a very popular budget entry in the category and comes in three flavors. Broan offers the hood in a non-vented variety, as well as providing options with either a 7" round vent or a 3-1/4"X10" vent access. We stock the white version. It is also also is available in bisque/biscuit, almond, stainless steel, and black.

In addition to complete products, we are also an authorized distributor for Broan parts. With a model number we can get any available Broan part to help you get that air moving again. The most popular parts are waiting for you in our warehouse. If we don't stock it, we would be more than happy to order it in for you.

As a side note, Nutone is another well known brand in the home ventilation arena. The Nortek corporation acquired Broan in 1981 and followed up by acquiring Nutone in 1998. In 2000 the companies were merged as Broan-Nutone LLC. It is an unusual arrangement as both names are hand;led independently. We can often get parts for Nutone, but they use a different numbering and ordering system than Broan which can sometimes interfere with our access.

We are entering that time of year where houses tend to be sealed up against the cold weather. This is the time of year that it is most important to have your home ventilation in good working order. Its also a good time to check your filters and replace them if needed.

Like Apple says in their famous press conferences, there is "just one more thing". Even if you have a range hood made by a company other than Broan/Nutone we can get replacement filters. Our supplier American Metal Filters will custom make filters to any specifications. Just call us with your needed specs and we can get the ball rolling.

If you know you need to do some repairs on your range hood. For your own sake, DO NOT put it off until the holidays. As the holidays approach servicers get busier and it becomes more difficult to schedule a service call. If any parts need to be ordered, that can result in a delay. An early request means you can get the repair done with time to spare before the holiday, that leaves you more time to do the fun stuff-like planning, shopping, cooking, cleaning, and...well, you get the picture.
