Delta has been named a 2020 Energy Star Partner of the Year for the fifth consecutive year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for its energy-efficient, quiet and reliable, Delta Breez Indoor Air Quality solutions. The milestone also represents the third year in a row the company was honored with the distinguished “Sustained Excellence” designation, the highest honor among the Energy Star Awards and which recognizes companies that have gone above the Partner of Year Award criteria. In 2019 alone, Delta provided more than 600,000 Energy Star-qualified Delta Breez ventilation fans across the United States, including hotels, homes, apartments, student housing and other facilities.
More than 90% of the Delta Breez portfolio is Energy Star qualified due to the fans’ exclusive use of brushless DC motor technology and LED lighting to maximize energy savings. Since last year, Delta has introduced 10 new exhaust fans within the Delta BreezSignature, Delta BreezIntegrity and Delta BreezElite series – all of which are certified Energy Star Most Efficient 2019. Delta BreezElite fans save 67% more energy than typical AC motor counterparts, with some of the line’s models exceeding Energy Star requirements by more than 200%.
Among its large-scale installations in 2019, Delta provided 1,700 Energy Star Most Efficient fans for a university student housing complex in California. Another 1,200 fans were installed in a riverfront hotel renovation in Kentucky with an estimated savings of $14,000 off the annual electric bill compared to typical AC motor fans.
