Energy Solutions Home demonstrates high-efficient heating, cooling, ventilation and water heating systems

August 27, 2012

For Immediate Release

ST. PAUL, MN – Is your furnace or boiler working efficiently? Does it need repair or replacement? How do I explore upgrading my heating and cooling systems? How old is too old for my water heater?

These and many other questions will be addressed at the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) display at the State Fair’s Eco Experience Building. The HVAC display, part of the new Energy Solutions Home exhibit, will showcase high-efficiency products that can save energy and improve the indoor air quality of your home. Its energy specialists will help consumers decide when it is time to replace old and inefficient equipment, and they will point out the benefits of investing in efficiency.

The Energy Solutions Home is part of the Eco Experience, the largest environmental event of its kind in the country with more than 25,000 square feet of interactive experiences. It is designed to help typical Minnesota homeowners learn how to improve their homes through a variety of strategies and options. It is located on 7,000 square feet at the center of the Eco Experience Building, at the north end of the Fair, and is open each day of the Fair from 9:00am to 9:00pm.

The HVAC display will demonstrate high efficiency appliances such as furnaces, water heaters, air conditioners, and heat recovery ventilators. The appliances will be set up so fairgoers can view the equipment from all angles. Additional displays will demonstrate the importance of maintaining furnaces, such as filter replacement, and the dangers of carbon monoxide.

In addition to the HVAC display, the Energy Solutions Home includes exhibits on home performance; home assessment; tightening your home to save energy; home lighting options; efficient appliances; saving water; landscaping; and paying for home improvements.
