Steam Baths Rejuvenate Your Skin

Regular steam sessions can perform miracles on your skin, cleansing the pores and improving the circulation.

Francesca Fusco is a dermatologist in New York, well known for her non-invasive methods of skin improvement and skin rejuvenation. In an interview in Allure she gives her advice on how to optimize your skin routine with steam.

“Actually, spending time in the sauna is a lot like having a facial, but for the whole body. Fifteen minutes in the steam room opens pores, increases sweating, stimulates circulation, and eliminates toxins”, Fusco says.

Taking regular sauna baths, especially steamy ones, can have a truly transformative effect on the skin's appearance. The elevated heat and the increased sweating and circulation stimulates the reproduction of collagen and deeply cleanse and rejuvenate your skin.

“Before entering the sauna, I recommend a shower with a gentle exfoliating scrub, Fusco says. Stay in the steam for around 15 minutes, and then shower and exfoliate again.

It is crucial to rehydrate, both from the inside and externally.”

Fusco reminds us to drink plenty of water and to moisturize the skin after each sauna session.

“I recommend applying moisturizer when your skin is still damp, and on top of that you can add an oil like jojoba for maximum effect”, she says.

If you are looking to improve your skin, consistency is key. One session in the steam sauna doesn’t have much impact, but if you turn regular steam sauna baths into a habit you will soon see a difference in your complexion.

From the moment Keen Home introduced the Smart Vent System on Shark Tank in early 2015, integration with ecobee’s smart thermostat has consistently ranked as one of the most frequently requested new features. After months of hard work and testing, we are pleased to announce, Keen Home Smart Vents are officially compatible with ecobee3 and ecobee lite smart thermostats and ecobee room sensors! This is a huge deal. Here's why:

  1. More smart thermostat integrations mean smarter vents. We launched with support for Nest’s Learning Thermostat as well as wi-fi thermostats on the SmartThings and Lowe’s Iris platforms. With the addition of ecobee3 to our roster of integrations, we’re making good on our promise to be integration-centric and to meet homeowners where they already are in terms of smart home technology.
  2. Wouldn’t it be great to have a thermostat in every room? With Smart Vents and ecobee room sensors, that’s what you’ll get. Even more frequently requested than ecobee3 integration, room-by-room thermostat functionality embodies the promise of Smart Vents for many of our customers . While we previously could only report on air temperature, ecobee’s room sensors give your Smart Vent System another data point from which to determine and act on temperature discrepancies between rooms. Best of all, we have learned a ton about working with room sensors and have started work on our own.
  3. Have multiple ecobee3’s in your home? Now you can pair them all with your Smart Vent System to support multiple zones. There is no limit to the number of thermostats that can be added, and with room sensors in place, you will have a comprehensive view of the climate in your home.

If all of that sounds interesting to you and you have an ecobee3 or ecobee lite, update your Keen Home app and connect your thermostat. To learn more about Kenn Home, visit our website: http://www.emersonswan.com/manufacturers-products/keen-home.html

New Little Giant Inline Pump Controls

Franklin Electric is excited to announce the launch of the much-anticipated Inline Controls! The new Inline Controls include five pump starting and control devices that pair with a variety of submersible or surface pumps to provide or boost the system’s overall water pressure – and in many cases, without the need of an additional bladder tank. Depending on application requirements and the selected model, this product family offers various forms of system protection. They also offer two unique features that ensure the system remains functional and hassle free, including: a daily motor rotation start designed to energize the motor at least once every 24 hours (to prevent system locking), and a unique automatic restart feature eliminating the need to manually restart the pump in the case of an unexpected trip or fault.

Taco Timer/Aquastat Options

00 Timer/Aquastat 24 Hour Analog Timer & 7 Day Digital Programmable Timer

The Timer/Aquastat combination is designed to cycle the circulator during peak demand periods. Use the two devices together or separately. When used together, the Timer switches ON, sending power to the unit. The Temperature Aquastat measures the temperature and cycles the circulator as long as the Timer is “ON.” If used separately, the Timer operates the circulator during the chosen number of 15-minute intervals.

When using only the Aquastat, the circulator cycles continuously to maintain a temperature between 95º F. and 115º F. For maximum convenience and flexibility, you can retrofit both to any Taco 00® Series Cartridge Circulator.
