Rockledge, FL (PRWEB) July 22, 2013 -- Mainstream Engineering was recognized for excellence in product design in the 10th annual Dealer Design Awards Program sponsored by The Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration News magazine. An independent panel of contractors acted as judges in the contest that had 122 entries. The company’s QwikSEER+WattSaver® is the Bronze Award Winner in the Residential Controls category. The ACHR News is the leading trade magazine in the heating, ventilating, air conditioning, and refrigeration industries.
The QwikSEER+WattSaver® by QwikProducts™ greatly improves indoor comfort by reducing humidity while increasing EER ratios. The inexpensive QwikSEER+® control board enables the dormant multi-speed capability of a PSC motor, yielding much of the benefit provided by variable speed ECM motors at a fraction of the cost. A key facet of the QwikSEER+® control is that it optimizes the evaporator temperature operating point so that the combined power consumption of both the blower motor and compressor is reduced while humidity removal is improved. The quick return-on-investment makes QwikSEER+® an extremely affordable energy efficiency upgrade for contractors to offer their customers.
"We are pleased that The ACHR News has recognized the QwikSEER+WattSaver® as an innovative humidity control product that was designed with the contractor in mind – the QwikSEER+® can be installed in minutes, does not require any programming, and works with existing thermostats and controls,” stated Dr. Robert Scaringe, President of Mainstream Engineering. "The QwikSEER+® is also an inexpensive efficiency upgrade, improving EER by up to 12% which helps contractors implementing utility companies’ HVAC Maintenance and Tune-up programs."
News Publisher Mike Murphy stated, "These awards give us a unique opportunity to recognize the outstanding research and development efforts that go into many of the products serving the HVACR industry and the awards issue gives our readers an opportunity to read about innovative installation and service solutions."
Winning entries in the Dealer Design Awards were featured in the July 22, 2013 issue of The ACHR News, which is distributed nationally to over 33,000 HVACR contractors, wholesalers, and other industry professionals.
