RESPONDING TO CONSUMER NEEDS...
The original company focus on the homeowner's needs and wants has been
critical to the continued growth of NuTone-NuTone and its development of
innovative products to meet those needs.
The recent development of the Quiet Hood and WhispAire was in response
to consumer desires for a quieter hood that permitted conversations to

And, the introduction of the Allure Series of range hoods was the direct
result of over 4,000 homeowners stating that they wanted a more stylish
hood, that was quiet, easy to clean, provided full surface lighting and

The success of Allure in meeting and surpassing homeowner needs is evident
by the number of awards this new series of range hoods has received including
"Home Magazines Top 10 Products for 2000," "Today's Homeowner's
Top 10 Products for 2000," "Popular Mechanics Best Product of
