BANGOR, Maine - Hallowell International has announced a new distribution partnership with Wolseley Canada to supply its Acadia: Combined Heating and Cooling System to homeowners and businesses throughout western and central Canada and Quebec.

According to Hallowell, the Acadia is a single system engineered to comfortably heat and cool homes in all weather conditions, even temperatures as cold as -34°C. Through patented boosted compression technology, it is said to operate much more efficiently than a conventional heat pump, eliminating the need for a supplemental heat source.

The companies said the partnership will allow Wolseley to increase its selection of green products for the residential and light commercial marketplace, while providing Hallowell with an expanded network of customer support and training facilities across Canada.

“The Acadia: Combined Heating and Cooling System gives contractors the opportunity to offer their customers an energy efficient, environmentally conscious, and affordable alternative to conventional fossil fuel systems and is a welcome addition to our green offerings,” said Iain Watson, Wolseley’s Western Canada business group leader.

“We are excited to offer this new approach for heating and cooling across Canada and are pleased to partner with Wolseley to deliver on the promise,” said Dan Davis, vice president of sales and marketing at Hallowell International.
