A few might deem having their air ducts cleaned is pointless, an unrelated step in housing routine maintenance.

Fireplace and Home Fire Safety

More than one-third of Americans use fireplaces, wood stoves and other fuel-fired appliances as primary heat sources in their homes. Unfortunately, many people are unaware of the fire risks when heating with wood and solid fuels.

Check Your Hotspots

Each year fire claims the lives of 3,500 Americans, injures 18,300, and causes billions of dollars worth of damage.

Save More with Outdoor Reset Controls

In order to provide accurate indoor temperatures, the heat supplied to the building must equal the heat loss from the building. The greatest factor affecting how much heat a building requires is the outdoor temperature. Even in a well-insulated building, heat loss increases as the outdoor temperature falls.

Honeywell AquaReset™ Outdoor Reset System

Honeywell's AquaReset takes an already-efficient Honeywell Electronic Aquastat® and uses reliable EnviraCOM™ communications, already built into most Honeywell combustion products, to link it to an outdoor temperature sensor to maximize energy savings. The boiler setpoint decreases automatically based on the outdoor temperature while still providing all the necessary heat to maintain the comfort level.
