Award Winning Technologies for 2014-2015:

Advanced Clothes Dryers

Dryers are now one of the largest energy using appliances in the home. A typical dryer consumes more than 900 kWh annually, while a typical refrigerator uses just 455 kWh/year.  Award-winning dryers will save you approximately 40% in energy compared to standard dryers, and reduce carbon emissions by 40%.   

Demand Control Kitchen Ventilation

Commercial kitchen ventilation is the single biggest user of energy in a commercial food service facility. To reduce that energy consumption, Demand Control Kitchen Ventilation (DCKV) provides automated continuous control over fan speed in response to temperature, optical, or infrared sensors that monitor cooking activity or direct communication with cooking appliances.
