Expanding its heating product portfolio, the company has introduced an upgraded ES38 direct vent wall furnace as well as a new condensing boiler side mount kit. An enhanced digital control panel has been added to the furnace. Featuring a new timer function that lets consumers preset the unit for two separate, timed heating events during a 24-hour period, the updated model enables maximum heating comfort and energy efficiency because a space may be heated only during times of anticipated occupancy. The redesigned control panel also offers a setback feature, which allows for a minimum temperature to be preset and maintained between timed events, and an override option to temporarily turn on or turn off a programmed timer event. The side-mount kit for the company’s condensing boiler products enables installers to place the boilers in retrofit projects more easily. The kit relocates a boiler’s plumbing connections from the bottom of the unit to the left side of the boiler, significantly simplifying the installation process in buildings where height restrictions are an issue. Three mounting kits with custom-made steel tubing and connection pieces are available.
