HARTFORD, WI -- Broan-NuTone, the leader in residential ventilation, is traveling coast to coast on a 60-stop nationwide tour to see which contractors can install the ULTRA Ventilation Fan the fastest. The ULTRA Pro Challenge, which launched in Milwaukee in August and will conclude in November in California, gives contractors across the country hands-on experience with the ULTRA Ventilation Fans, a revolutionary bathroom ventilation product that installs up to 60 percent faster in retrofits and up to 20 percent faster in new construction than comparable fans.
"ULTRA Fans feature the fastest, easiest, most universal installation to save contractors time," says Richard Palmersheim, group vice president, marketing, Broan-NuTone LLC. "There's no better way to convince contractors of the benefits of this product than to let them install the fans themselves."
Contractors may choose to earn recommended ULTRA Pro Contractor status and be included in an online ULTRA Pro Contractor locator program. The ULTRA Pro Contractor locator is designed to help homeowners find a professional contractor that is able to assist them with their bathroom ventilation needs. For homeowners who want to keep their homes safe and comfortable, ULTRA Fans provide long-lasting benefits such as extremely quiet operation, superior performance, energy efficiency and humidity- or motion-sensing capabilities. They also help meet stringent green building and ventilation codes.
Dozens of contractors at each tour stop, including locations in major cities like Chicago, New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, compete to install an ULTRA Fan in the quickest time. The events, open exclusively to contractors, are hosted by Broan-NuTone distributors.
The fastest contractor at each location receives a $500 Cabela's gift certificate. At the conclusion of the ULTRA Pro Challenge, the eight contractors with the quickest times among the location winners will each win a trip for two to the International Builders' Show in Las Vegas in February 2014. The eight contractors will then compete at the show for a 2014 Ford F150 grand prize.
"We're dedicated to helping the loyal contractors who work with our products," says Palmersheim. "We're so confident that the ULTRA Fans are the solution for residential bathroom ventilation that we want contractors all across the country to experience it."
