The Bathroom Fan: The Forgotten Fixture

If you are like most homeowners, you don't use the exhaust fan in your bathroom; it's too loud and very annoying. Masking unpleasant odors with aerosol sprays and plug-in air fresheners only adds more odors and chemicals to the air. Opening a window is not enough and may not always be practical or safe.

The quietest room in the house just got quieter. Aero Pure ENERGY STAR qualified bathroom fans are among the industry's quietest bathroom ventilation fans and offer homeowners savings on energy bills without sacrificing performance and style.

Why Ventilate?

Today’s homes are designed to be more airtight and energy efficient than they were in the past. These improvements make it difficult for your home to breathe; the amount of air that can “leak” in and out of your home is limited. The EPA estimates that the level of indoor pollutants and containment's inside your home may be two to five times greater than those found in outdoor air. Without proper ventilation, indoor pollutants given off from cleaning chemicals, finishes, furnishings, and daily living activities build up.

Effective ventilation is especially important in bathrooms, which experience high levels of odors and excess moisture. Excessive moisture peels paint and wallpaper, rots windowsills, warps doors, and promotes the growth of mold and mildew. Efficient Aero Pure quiet bathroom ventilation fans clear the air, removing unpleasant odors, chemicals, and moisture before they become a problem.

Proper bathroom ventilation is a must- to help remove unpleasant and inconvenient odors and to reduce the harmful effects of excessive moisture and the growth of mold and mildew.

Taco Hot-LinkPlus | Link Up To Instant Hot Water Comfort!

Taco has another exciting new addition to their growing family of Domestic Hot Water Recirculation comfort products, the Hot-LinkPlus™.

Hot-LinkPlus combines the advanced capabilities of their SmartPlus™ with the convenience and reliability of their Hot-Link™ bypass valve in one convenient product.

Hot-LinkPlus provides a simple, easily-installed, reliable solution to growing water shortage problems. It helps to save the average family of four up to 12,000 gallons of water annually. And it is 94% more energy efficient than standard recirculation circulators.

How It Works
Hot-LinkPlus has two operational modes to fit the needs of any household. In "Smart" mode, it monitors and records the home's hot water usage pattern. In optional Pulse mode, the circulator pulses periodically to maintain hot water at all fixtures. In Vacation mode, which is automatically activated when Hot-LinkPlus detects no water use for 36 hours, the circulator turns off, and activates for ten seconds every seven days to prevent corrosion and scale buildup. The Hot-LinkPlus bypass valve's unique thermal disk technology sends cooled water back to the water heater so hot water lines remain hot.

Easy To Install
First, install the Hot-LinkPlus bypass valve at the faucet furthest away from the water heater. Then install the Hot-LinkPlus circulator at the water heater. Once installed connect the temperature sensor to the hot water supply pipe and plug the 6' power cord into any standard 120V electrical outlet. Everything needed to install and operate the system is in the box.
