As we head into the fall and winter heating seasons, it’s an important time to have a professional look at your HVAC mechanical systems and perform any necessary maintenance. However, many people — especially those with newly constructed homes — either don’t understand or fail to appreciate the importance of the right kind of ventilation within the home. Proper ventilation can affect everything from a family’s health to the efficiency of their heating and cooling systems.
“We are grateful to the builders of FHB House for allowing us to showcase the benefits of some of our ventilation products,” said Tamarack Technologies CEO Tom Colasanto. “Since it’s the start of the heating season, a home’s ability to ‘breathe’ and the products that help it do so ensure that it’s a safer, healthier and more efficient environment. Our Return Air Pathway products are being installed between walls and/or over doors in the FHB House. They allow the heating system to function at peak efficiency because of proper airflow room to room. Our Dragon fan installed in the garage clears toxic fumes from one of the most vulnerable places in the home. Finally, our Cape Backdraft Damper replaces noisy metal dampers and ensures that backdrafts don’t adversely affect the operation of key appliances such as dryers and range hoods.”
Tamarack Technologies has recently introduced the first wireless whole house fan series which allows homeowners to refresh the air in their home via smartphone.
“Our entire focus this year and next is to provide new, technologically advanced ventilation products that make a home ‘smarter,’ more comfortable and healthier at a cost anyone can afford,” Colasanto concluded.
