Battic Door Energy Conservation Products was recognized for excellence in product design in the second annual Dealer Design Awards Program sponsored by The Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration News magazine.   An independent panel of 65 contractors acted as judges in the contest that had 114 entries from 82 manufacturers.  The company’s Whole House Attic Fan Insulator Cover was the Bronze Award winner in the Miscellaneous Category.  The News is the leading trade magazine in the heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration industries.

News Publisher John Conrad stated, "This product design competition gives us the opportunity to recognize the outstanding product designs and innovations that make a dealers job easier and faster. It also enables our readers to identify new product opportunities."

”We are very excited to have our energy conservation products recognized by The News” said Mark D. Tyrol, President of Battic Door. “With today’s skyrocketing energy costs, the time has come for every homeowner to conserve energy however possible”, explained Tyrol.

“Many folks may not be aware of the often “overlooked” holes in their home. Others that may be aware of the problems may not be aware of how easy it is to correct them” continued Tyrol.

“Our products seal overlooked holes in the home including the fireplace, attic stair, whole house attic fan, and clothes dryer, and result in energy savings and improved comfort”, Tyrol explains. “One or more of our products can be used in just about every home in North America”.

Winning entries in the Dealer Design Awards will be (were) featured in the July 18, 2005 issue of The News, which is distributed nationally to over 32, 000 HVACR contractors, wholesalers, and other industry professionals.

  One would think closing the damper would be enough to keep cold air out and warm air in, but not necessarily so.
A solution to this problem is the fireplace plug.  It is like a plastic inflatable pillow for your chimney.
To install it, you partially inflate it with the breathing tube...
...then slip it up into the top of the firebox...
...and lock it in place.
Finally, finish inflating the plug and tuck the tube out of sight.

Some heating experts claim that an unlit fireplace with a damper open can increase heating costs by as much as 30 percent. Now that could add up to $500 over the course of a season.

Well, here's a solution that's relatively inexpensive, easy to install and pretty much invisible.
