TEC & NEC is Now Stocking Honeywell’s New Hydronic Zoning Panel

Honeywell has introduced a new hydronic zoning panel line for pumps and zone valves.

New with the HPSR (pump) and HPZC (zone valve) panels:

  • “C” common terminal for each thermostat. This allows simple connections for Wi-Fi stats requiring a common wire.
  • Compatible with most thermostats including power-stealing and electro-mechanical. This makes your installation more flexible.
  • LED status indicator lights visible with the cover on or off. This saves troubleshooting time.
  • Color coded wiring. This increases installation speed and decreases the chance of errors.
  • 5 year warrantee. Backed by Honeywell’s history of proven performance and product support.

All these features and benefits at a more competitive price than previous hydronic zone panels!

TEC/NEC will be stocking the HPSR101 (1 zone), HPSR103 (3 zone), HPSR104 (4 zone) & HPSR106 (6 zone) pump relays. The HPZC106 6 zone valve relay will also be in stock.

McHenry High School has PoolPak Dehumidifier Built on Site

How do you get a 24’x8’x6’ PoolPak SWHP190SR dehumidification unit through a 6’ wide door?

 

Hugh Flack was brought on as Facility Director at the school in 2017 and when he found that the existing PoolPak unit was due for replacement he contacted TEC. Jay DeStefano, Territory Manager and John Peloza, Product Manager met with the school and its Engineer, Wold Architects & Engineers, to help with the project. TEC was able to replicate the original unit with improvements such as variable frequency drives and premium efficiency fan motors. Wold also improved air distribution and quality with new duct work.

A problem arose when they were trying to figure out how they were going to get this huge piece of equipment through a 6′ wide door. The answer was piece by piece using PoolPak’s Build on Site program. PoolPak is unique with this offering. The unit was built at the factory and packed onto skids. A factory crew of four builders was sent to the job site to assemble the unit in four days. This crew was followed up by a factory startup technician and a TEC factory trained technician. The project timeline was tight, as most school summer projects tend to be. The general contractor, Irving Construction Company and the mechanical contractor C. Acitelli Heating & Piping Contractors worked together to get the pool back in operation on time.

TEC is the representative for PoolPak in Northern Illinois and Northwest Indiana. Please contact your Territory Manager for more information.

What Homeowners are Saying about Respicaire

Several years ago my husband and I bought our second “new to us” home. At the time we had a young toddler and were expecting our second shortly after having moved in. As we settled into our home we started to notice that there was a constant build-up of dust. It seemed like a never ending battle, especially in areas near the vents. We were changing our filters regularly and had had the furnace checked when we moved in – it was considered to be in good condition and was well maintained.

Fast forward a few months and our newborn son started presenting a constant cough. We were diligent in our dust management but still, the problem presented. After months of non-stop respiratory related illnesses, he was prescribed puffers. This was not okay with me, I felt like there had to be something we could do to improve our son’s health.

During this time as we researched options we were introduced to the possibility that our HVAC system may be a part of the problem. After discussing options, we elected to move forward with Respicaire’s UV purifiers and electronic air cleaners.What a difference! If we had known we would have installed this before our son was born! The hacking and coughing stopped.

Fast forward another eight years and my son is no longer using puffers or vulnerable to constant chest infections. The air in the home smells fresh and dust is no longer a problem, unless of course we don’t clean it….

In the end our big learning was that a healthy homestead includes clean air! Thank you Respicaire!

Sincerely,

Nicole and David

TEC & Magic Aire Exhibit at 2016 IASB Trade Show

On November 18th & 19th, TEC and Magic Aire hosted a booth at the Illinois Association of School Administrators & Illinois Association of School Boards 2016 Joint Annual Conference Exhibition. The booth exhibit featured the unique self-contained unit ventilator which incorporates packaged cooling and heating into a single unit, thus eliminating the added cost and maintenance for adding a remote condenser for cooling.

The unit has the highest part-load efficiency ratings in the industry due to a true variable speed compressor, as opposed to a 2-stage compressor like that of competitors. The sound is also a full 7 dB lower than older Magic Aire units. Models range from 2 to 5 tons and can include water, steam, electric heat or hot gas reheat. Models for 2017 include air and water source heat pumps.

School board members, facilities managers and engineers visited our booth and had the opportunity to appreciate this quiet and efficient unit.
