Consumers Plug into Affordable and Green Alternative For Home Heating

Better Than Geothermal or Wood Pellet Stoves; the Acadia Delivers Comfort and Value for Home Energy Retrofits

Bangor, ME (DECEMBER 2009) - Consumers looking for an alternative to their oil or natural gas furnaces now have an affordable and environmentally friendly choice, the Acadia: Combined Heating and Cooling System from Hallowell International.

The award winning, patented system is helping homeowners and businesses across the US and Canada save money, cut their dependence on foreign oil and become more energy efficient. It is the ideal product for those who want to retrofit their homes to be more energy efficient

A Massachusetts family living on a fixed income replaced its oil furnace with the Acadia and saved thousands of dollars in heating bills. Another family in New Jersey relies on the Acadia to maintain the highest standards for their environmentally friendly home.

How does it work? The Acadia is a single system engineered to comfortably and efficiently heat and cool homes no matter what the weather outside. A patented, next generation heat pump, it is uniquely designed to run efficiently and without backup even at temperatures as cold as minus 30 degrees Fahrenheit.

"We are dedicated to producing products that are not only energy efficient but that are affordable and available to everyone," said Duane A. Hallowell, President and CEO of Hallowell International. "Now that the Obama administration is encouraging more home energy retrofits, the time is right for consumers to choose the Acadia."

The Acadia is cleaner and greener than wood pellet stoves. It is also as efficient as geothermal technology, yet is one third the installed cost and doesn't require digging up the yard.
