Ultravation Introduces New Ion Generator For Indoor Air Quality

Ultravation® has introduced the Orion™ ion generator for odor and fine particulate reduction to help your customers breath better.

The Orion™ ion generator can be used independently or in combination with other IAQ systems. The negative and positive IONS generated by the Orion™ charge even the smallest airborne particulates causing them to bind together in clusters large enough for capture in filtration.

Update: Amana 18 SEER Inverter Heat Pump Now In Stock!

ASX14Goodman Manufacturing announced a new 18 SEER inverter heat pump, with ratings of up to 19 SEER and 13 EER.

The heat pump will be sold in 4 sizes: 2, 3, 4, and 5 ton. Because of the true inverter motor, half-sizes are not required.

The 18 SEER inverter heat pump comes with Amana’s Lifetime Unit Replacement Limited Warranty Coverage (complete warranty details available at www.amana-hac.com).

The inverter heat pump must be paired with the CTK-04 communicating thermostat and matches with a new line of Amana electronic expansion valve (EEV) air handlers: the AVPEC family.

Full product specs are here.

The new EEV allows the valve to adjust based on performance load, which improves overall efficiency of the system compared to a TXV. For an explanation of the benefits of an EEV compared to a TXV in variable load situations, click here.
