Homeowners and small businesses in eastern Pennsylvania looking to cut energy costs and improve building efficiency have a new option in Acadia, a state-of-the-art combined heating and cooling system now available through
HVAC Distributors Inc.
In response to increasing requests from contractors in Pennsylvania, Acadia manufacturer Hallowell International
has partnered with HVAC Distributors to make the ultra-efficient system available in the eastern half of the Commonwealth.
The Acadia, which employs a patented boosted compression technology, is more efficient than a traditional heat pump and eliminates the need for an additional heat source that many systems require during cold winters. The result is a system that outperforms conventional fossil fuel-based heating systems, such as natural gas, by up to 300 percent.
"Last year, when oil was over $4 a gallon we were showing 70 percent savings" compared to traditional heating and cooling systems, says Dan Davis, Hallowell's VP of sales and marketing. "People want to get away from fossil fuels, that's really the big driver."
Hallowell has undertaken a nationwide expansion of Acadia distribution, which it manufactures at its headquarters in Bangor, Maine. According to Davis, chose HVAC Distributors as its Pennsylvania partner because the wholesaler is "a progressive distributor. They really focus on continuous education and training."
