3) How does your company differentiate from competitors in the industry?
At Specified Air Solutions, our focus is on innovation and patent pending technologies that significantly reduce energy usage while providing optimal ventilation and comfort.
Dectron’s LEEDeR® indoor pool dehumidification unit delivers an efficient, safe, reliable, low maintenance and cost-effective solution. LEEDeR® units eliminate temperature fluctuations in the air and pool water. Less temperature swings mean greater efficiency and lower operating costs. These units contribute anywhere from 6 to 13 LEED points, which can be applied toward achieving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating systems.
Addison’s semi-custom packaged rooftop DOAS unit, the PR-Series, helps improve indoor air quality and energy efficiency. Available in three to 70 tons, the PR-Series offers design flexibility with a wide selection of factory options, as well as the ability to accept custom options for specific job requirements.
Roberts-Gordon recently unveiled the highest efficient infrared heating system in the industry with the introduction of their new high efficient reflectors. CORAYVAC® infrared heaters, combined with high efficiency reflectors, achieve an Infrared Factor (IF) of 15 – the highest in the infrared heating market today.
4) What is your vision for your company’s future?
The vision for Specified Air Solutions is to continue designing, producing and delivering semi-custom HVAC innovations that provide the highest energy efficiency and comfort. Our LEEDeR® indoor pool dehumidification unit, the PR semi-custom packaged rooftop DOAS unit and CORAYVAC® infrared heaters with high efficiency reflectors demonstrate our commitment to exceeding customers’ needs for high performance equipment.
