INDOOR AIR FILTER
United Air Specialists' VisionAir filters are an effective and user-friendly solution to indoor air pollution from smoke, aerosol, dust, and germs. The filters remove 99.97% of indoor irritants and pollutants, while a carbon filter removes unpleasant odors, producing purified air that is healthy and easy to breathe. Model VisionAir1 is wall-, ceiling-, or stand-mounted; VisionAir2 can be mounted on the wall or ceiling. These filters feature an unobtrusive design and quiet performance, running at a sound level lower than the average PC.

ENERGY CONTROL
PST5000-5 digital energy management system enhances Smart Systems' people-sensing, load-shedding, multi-stage ventilation systems. Upon an occupant's return, the control system adjusts the room temperature back to the original setting within minutes. The temperature and recovery time can be dictated by the occupant or they can be programmed within parameters by the building management. The system uses a highly sensitive humidity sensor to target dew point or relative humidity levels.

VENTILATION CONTROL
AirCycler™ from Lipidex is a ventilation control designed to improve the temperature control, humidity, and filtration systems by periodically operating the central fan in a facility. Working with the air handler and low-voltage thermostat wiring, the ventilation control allows "averaging" of air temperature and eliminates stagnant air that a thermostat cannot detect. AirCycler activates the central fan only after a selected period of time during which the fan has not operated. Benefits include lower monthly utility bills, increased thermal comfort, and higher resale value.

AIR QUALITY KIT
Steril-Aire's Fan Coil UVC Kit enables control of mold and indoor air quality in applications such as hotels, schools, apartments, office buildings, and hospitals. Each kit contains a UVC Emitter™ and power supply, plus all necessary hardware components to retrofit a fan coil. The kit makes it possible to install germicidal lights in some of the most popular yet difficult to maintain air-conditioning systems. Benefits include energy savings and reduced maintenance. Designed for fast and easy snap-in installation, this space-saving kit fits all major fan coil brands.

WIRELESS UTILITY
InnerWireless" is an in-building wireless communication distribution system that provides complete coverage for a full range of voice and data services. InnerWireless technology uses a single broadband infrastructure comprised of passive antennae components installed throughout a building. Designed to help customers integrate fire, security, and other building controls, InnerWireless helps eliminate dead signal spots with wireless applications and devices, whether they are located in one building or spread across a corporate campus. Devices include two-way radios used by maintenance and security personnel.

GEOTHERMAL HEAT PUMP

ClimateMaster's R410A Tranquility geothermal water-source heat pump uses a non-polluting EarthPure™ R410A refrigerant in order to protect the environment, while reducing energy costs. Geotheremal heat pumps are interconnected by way of an efficient water loop, rather than by extensive ductwork. Engineered for long life and reliability, the 27 EER system includes five lift-out service panels for easy access to all internal components. Tranquility features a dual-platform sound-absorbing system and Copeland UltraTech two-stage unloading scroll compressors for quiet operation.

HUMIDITY CONTROL
Lennox® L Series rooftop air-conditioning units with Humiditrol® reduce humidity in the conditioned air it delivers to buildings, limiting the spread of allergens. Standard on most L Series AC units, Humiditrol is a patented, hot gas-reheat system that controls humidity based on relative humidity (RH) levels. The result is improved humidity control, even on mild temperature days when many thermostat-initiated systems can fail. Compatible with third-party systems, the system is designed to control mold and bacteria growth that can affect absenteeism and long-term health problems.

SOLAR ROOF SYSTEMS
BP Solar's EnergyMax™ Solar Electric Roof Systems turn roof space into an electricity-generating asset. Engineered to tilt towards the sun, these roof systems maximize the use of sunlight to generate more electricity per module than comparable flat roof systems. EnergyMax provides a complete and reliable solar energy solution, using only proven system designs and components and includes an exclusive energy production guarantee. The shade provided from an EnergyMax roof system shields the building's roof from UV radiation and keeps the roof cool.

FLOOR-SENSING CONTROL
A new floor-sensing thermostat from Nuheat is available for both of its 110-volt and 220-volt electric radiant mats, which come in more than 60 standard sizes with custom sizes for rooms with curves or angles. The underfloor heating mats produce 12 watts per square foot or 41 BTU at full power for a floor temperature of 88-92 degrees Fahrenheit. The Energy Star-qualified thermostat is programmable and allows end-users to control their floor temperature in order to fully maximize the product's energy-saving potential.

INTERNET THERMOSTATS

Proliphix thermostats enable users to monitor, maintain, and control HVAC systems securely over the Internet. These thermostats feature embedded Web servers for graphically configuring advanced temperature and energy management schemes. Thermostats from Proliphix can also send emergency alerts of error conditions or low temperature via e-mail, pagers, and mobile telephones. Compatible with existing broadband Internet access services, Proliphix professional series of Web-enabled thermostats can be used with various HVAC equipment, including single-stage, dual-stage, heat pumps, and systems with humidity control.
