SPRING GROVE, Ill. — Intermatic Inc., a provider of energy management solutions, announced its participation and donation of energy control products for the Military Makeover series of the Designing Spaces® TV show.
The series, which features the makeover of a mortgage-free home for a military veteran recipient, was filmed in July, in Eustice, Florida, the location of the home. This four-part episode begins airing on Friday, Oct. 2, on the Lifetime Network. Intermatic’s segment will be shown on the Oct. 16 episode with Intermatic’s Kim Durkot, product manager, highlighting the products.
The recipient of the home is Tommy Travis, his wife, and two daughters. Travis, who is set to receive the Purple Heart, spent 15 months in Iraq. He watched two friends die, and he suffered a brain injury after a grenade hit his Humvee. “It’s the beginning of the largest chapter of my life. It’s the best part of my life,” Travis said.
“Intermatic’s nearly 125-year history traces employee and product support for the U.S. military back to World War I and beyond,” said CEO Rick Boutilier. “This show raises awareness for ways that businesses can take steps to acknowledge and appreciate our veterans and their families.”
All Intermatic products donated to the show were selected and professionally installed for their consumer friendly ease-of-use and energy efficiency. These products include:
• Compressor Defender — the all-in-one Compressor Defender protects compressors and circuit boards from brownouts, surges, and short cycling.
• Multi-Wave™ wireless pool and spa controller — an affordable way to automatically control pools, spas, lights, heaters, and more.
• In-wall countdown timer — provides delayed ‘off’ control for areas where lights or fans are frequently left ‘on.’
• Surge protective device with consumable modules — this device provides protection for 100 percent of a homeowner’s big investment equipment, including appliances and computers. The self-contained modules are easily and safely replaced when the built-in LED light indicates one has been compromised.
