you have made some very real points... the HVAC market has been dominated by multi-million dollar Juggernauts, who had developed technology 40 years ago, and are still plugging the exact same product.
We use the Maxitrol Technology, in our high efficiency heat exchanger design. The competitors are still using an inferior turn down burner head... With modulation heat/cool control being the technology of present day and the future, it concerns me that Engineers of "old school" mindset are terribly outdated with their knowledge of modulation and increased efficiencies... It seems that "cut & paste" engineering has become the standard practice.
Thanks for your input, and your industry knowledge... we can only hope that the big dinosaurs of HVAC ignore the new game rules... It’s going to get a lot more tech-y in coming years.
I love my Fan Handlers, unfortunately the building came with a couple that are for gas heat and I am all water sourced heat pump. I need a quote for two heat pump fan handlers. Thanks for the best solution to air movement!

I haven't spoken to you in some time, since I retired from the HVAC Distributorship business. I've installed a number of your fan controls over the years including one in my own home approximately 10 years ago and absolutely loved it. I've moved to rural Tn. with an all electric home, which means I have 2 heat pumps (one mini split & one 3-1/2 ton system). I want to install a Fan Handler on my main system air handler which utilizes a single speed 208/230v. motor.
Incidently, the control I had in my previous home was on a PSC sleeve bearing motor which ran 24/7 at very low speed and at approx. 10 years use, NEVER gave my any problems. It is still operating just fine according to the new owner.

Hope this email finds you doing well. Just wanted to let you know that my Ecmmodulator is doing actually what I wanted it to do. Not sure if my HVAC contractor has installed anymore more units here in Birmingham area. Of course I believe the bread and butter for most HVAC contractors are new unit sales. Fyi, I’m planning on getting a new evap and condenser installed soon so I expect that upgrade will really improve the overall humidity level a little better in my house. Also, I’m thinking of getting another Ecmmodulator for my other unit and maybe two. As I like the benefit of the ecm motor running at a low speed to improve air quality. I’m not sure if you would sell to me or I have to contact that contractor again to handle the transaction. Anyways just thought I would touch base and thank you for all your help in the past with my project with Fanhandler.Merry Christmas
Yours is a quality product, and does not cause motor damage at extremely low rpm's. As I said, it performs as advertised. I am considering purchasing some of the condensing fan controls. If I can buy direct, please send a credit application and sales information to me at the address below. Thanks again for the sensors.
