system (APCO) with on-demand residential HVAC cycling and air cleaning. Foobot monitors the levels of airborne contaminants. Upon detection of an air-quality event, information is sent to the Lux/ GEO thermostat, which puts the air system into circulation mode so the Fresh-Aire UV APCO can purify the air. Real-time apps keep homeowners informed, showing improvements in IAQ and re- porting threats to air quality. CHECK OR CIRCLE #111 7. FILTRATION SYSTEM EASES WATER QUALITY CONCERNS With the increased awareness of the effect aging infrastructure can have on water purity, Kohler has developed a water filtration system that reduces lead, mercury, chlorine and other contaminants in the water, and is one of the few options on the market that significantly reduces pharmaceuticals in drinking water. Made from coconut shell activated carbon, the new Aquifer Filtration System is a much more eco-friendly option than traditional coal-based filters, and is easy enough to install that homeowners will not need to hire a profes- sional to ensure clean drinking water for their families. An optional subscription program is available online and lets users sign up to auto- matically receive a new filter every three, six, nine or 12 months, ensuring that they never have to deal with the hassle of finding replacement filters.

The fan pack is a versatile and easy-to-install dispersion unit with only an aesthetically pleasing grille located in the living space. -The fan pack is sized so that it is hidden in the wall. This allows the unit to be installed on nearly any wall in the house, even if there is a liv- ing space on both sides. With more applications, contractors can increase their humidifier busi- ness by quoting humidification for more custom- ers. CHECK OR CIRCLE #113 9. VORTEX ACTIVELY TREATS AIR IN HVAC SYSTEMS Nu-Calgon has launched the first air purification product resulting from its partnership with Global Plasma Solutions. Called the iVortex, the low- maintenance air purifier actively treats the air as it passes through a home's HVAC system without creating ozone or other harmful byproducts. The iVortex is a bi-polar, high-output ion genera- tor designed specifically for treating air in residen- tial duct systems up to six tons in size. As the air flows past the iVortex, positive and negative ions actively purify the air, killing mold, bacteria and viruses in the coil and living space. The ionization process also reduces allergens, smoke and static electricity, as well as controls odors and other particles in the air. CHECK OR CIRCLE #114 10. AQUATHERM PIPING CONTRIBUTES TO LEED CREDITS The only piping systems in North America that directly contribute to LEED v4 credits, Aquatherm Blue Pipe (HVAC and industrial) and Aquatherm Green Pipe (potable water) deliver the best of metal and plastic systems. Aquatherm polypro- pylene-random pipe doesn't rust, corrode or leach, and is connected by labor-saving heat fu- sion. It also features an industry-leading warranty, a natural R-value, excellent flow rates and stable, competitive material costs. CHECK OR CIRCLE #115 11. KEEPING HUMIDIFIERS CLEAN, CUTTING COSTS WITH WATER SAVOR GeneralAire has introduced the new Water Savor Controller, a device that reduces water running down the drain from a bypass flow- through humidifier. A minimum of 50 percent savings is realized with initial settings, but by customizing the settings, customers can reduce up to 96 percent water waste. Six dip switches inside allow customization for maximum water savings without reducing humidity output. The controller can be installed with any model bypass flow-through humidifier and can be installed in just minutes. CHECK OR CIRCLE #116 12.

The product uses a silver sensor and has a simple pass or fail result that shortens the time for discovering a corrosion problem versus a traditional Corrosion Coupon, which requires a laboratory analysis.
