Tamarack Technologies Introduces

First Intelligent Whole House Fan

Infinity iFan® can remotely refresh and cool

 indoor air without open windows

 

West Wareham, MA, April 21, 2016 – Tamarack Technologies (tamtech.com) CEO Tom Colasanto today introduced the first of a series of new ‘intelligent’ whole house fans. The Infinity iFan® is designed to remotely refresh and replace hot stale air in a home with cooling outside air without the need to open a window.

 

“Our new Tamarack Infinity iFan® is revolutionary in that homeowners can access it remotely via their smart phone without having to open windows, a frequent security concern.  All whole house fans currently rely on open windows to draw in outside cooling air. The iFan also constantly filters incoming air when engaged.”

 

How it works: The homeowner’s smart phone – using either Apple or Android operating systems -- engages a digital device located almost anywhere within the home which in turn activates the fan. Air is then channeled through a ducted system, pulling in cooler outside air and venting hot air out. “

 

“The digital device can be wired into any location in the home for convenience. It also allows the homeowner to manually turn the iFan on or off,” Colasanto said.

 

The new Infinity iFan exchanges up to 2200 cfm of air in the home, ideal for a 1000 to 1500 square foot house.

 

“It’s important to note that this is not going to ‘condition’ the air but rather refresh it,”

said Tamarack Vice President of R&D Nelson Warner. ‘Outside temperatures – as with any whole house fan – will need to be at least ten degrees lower than the air temperature in the home for the optimal cooling effect to kick in.

 

“However, once started from any remote location, the iFan will immediately begin to create a more comfortable and welcoming home environment,” he added.

 

The iFan will most frequently be placed in an attic, but for those homes without an attic, it can be set up in a utility closet, washer/dryer room -- almost anywhere in the house

with access to an outside wall through ductwork.

There is some duct work experience and electrical wiring expertise needed to properly install this product, but the new iFan is no more complicated than a typical whole house fan installation.

 

“Obviously, we’re excited about this breakthrough product and looking forward to

other new developments in 2016. We believe this is a ‘game changer’ for our industry and a ‘winner’ for consumers who will live more comfortably with a Tamarack Infinity iFan in their homes,” Colasanto concluded.

Tired of being cold??  Do you have a fireplace in your home?   Your fireplace is the biggest hole in the thermal envelope of your house.  You can make a difference in your energy bills, feel warmer in your living space, save wasted heat and/or cooled air from coming and going up your chimney.  Magnetic, insulated, fireplace covers.  www.fireplacefashion.com

Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Building Envelope Research recently conducted testing of our coating, Cerama-Tech.  Their results confirmed our original findings from years ago.  Many have asked for more recent test results.  Their testing was to EPDM roofing.

 

Our thanks to the folks at ORNL
