In 2008, a new-to-market invention created by a frustrated engineer is revolutionizing how consumers heat and cool their homes. The Acadia: Combined Heating and Cooling System from Hallowell International, was born from the inventor's aggravation from ever-higher energy bills. This all-electric single system delivers a new level of efficiency and performance for both heating and cooling, dramatically reduces monthly energy bills and, by not using fossil fuels, eases a household's strain on the environment. Indeed, the Acadia outperforms conventional heating systems by 300 percent.
From everyday homeowners to military housing contractors, consumers across the US and Canada are realizing the benefits of the Acadia. How does it work? Like inventing a better mousetrap, the inventor took his knowledge of traditional heat pump technology (which won't heat when temperatures drop below freezing), and improved it with his patented Opti-Cycle(TM) technology which enables the Acadia to run efficiently no matter what the weather outside -- even in temperatures as cold as minus 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
"The Acadia is a simple way for consumers to save on their energy bills, reduce energy consumption and do their part to help save the Earth," said Duane A. Hallowell, President and CEO of Hallowell International. "We continue to develop technologies that will aid in protecting our planet and are within reach to the average consumer."
