Energy Efficiency Rebate Program Now Open

The Indiana Office of Energy Development (OED) is pleased to offer $250,000 in rebates for replacing an existing furnace, boiler, or water heater with an energy efficient unit in existing Indiana residences.  The rebate program begins January 20, 2009 and will run until program funding is exhausted or April 30, 2009 whichever comes first.  Please read all program documents carefully before completing your application.  Many homeowners could be eligible for additional tax incentives.

Wireless relay modules for gas detection

Many wireless relay modules can support up to three full programmable alarm levels with time delays before or after an alarm.  Most relay modules have multiple double-pull, double-throw relays for alarms or faults.  A wireless relay module can be installed next to a group of fan starters that can activate a fan for a certain zone.  This relay module provides flexibility in new design buildings as well as reduced installation costs in existing buildings.  For more information, contact Jackson Systems at 888-652-9663 or find out more about gas detection at

Zoning a wireless gas detection system

Zoning a wireless gas diction system has many advantages. Some controllers can handle up to 126 zones.  Individual transmitters can belong to an unlimited number of zones.  Zoning provides maximum flexibility and reliability.  Zoning can reduce operation costs, energy consumption, and wear and tear by operating exhaust fans only in the zone that have a high level of harmful gases.   Zone averaging can average readings from several transmitters in one zone.  Thus if a car is idling near one transmitter in a zone the averaging component will not unnecessary start an exhaust fan.  Zone averaging can save energy and costs by analyzing the whole area rather than activating a fan from a high gas concentration reading from a signal device.  For more information, contact Jackson Systems at 888-652-9663 or find out more about wireless gas detection at

Wireless Gas detection meshed network

A wireless meshed network is a great feature for gas detection.   In its normally working mode wireless meshed gas detection network monitors ambient gas concentration.  A meshed network will not only send information from the transmitters to the controller but it will also send information between transmitters.  The benefits of a meshed network is that if one transmitter goes off line or is blocked by an obstruction the transmitters can communicate with each other around this defective transmitter.  It could be considered a similarity of a parallel electric circuit versus a series electric circuit in that you have different routes to travel if one component fails.  For more information, contact Jackson Systems at 888-652-9663 or find out more about wireless gas detection at

Wireless Gas Detectors

Many gas detectors can monitor Carbon Monoxide (CO), Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), or Oxygen (O) in parking garages or other applications.  Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) are the harmful gases produced by cars and trucks.  Oxygen deficiency ensures that occupants have enough breathable oxygen.  Different transmitters might be needed for each gas as the concentration of the gases tends to gather at different heights in an area.  Carbon Monoxide detectors are typically mounted at a height of 5 feet from the ground surface.  Nitrogen Dioxide Monitors are typically mounted at a height of 2 feet from the ceiling.  For more information, contact Jackson Systems at 888-652-9663 or find out more about wireless gas detectors at

Gas Detection

A wireless gas detection system is an industry that should see substantial growth in the next several years.  A wireless gas detection system can provide fast reliable protection from harmful gases such as CO and NO2. Complying with building codes, saving energy and protecting occupants are 3 benefits of a gas detection system.  A wireless gas detection system is usually made up of a controller, several transmitters, and possibly a relay module to operate exhaust fans and louvers.  The control panel or monitoring panel is the brains of the system.  The transmitters are your gas sensors that communicate ambient air readings to a central monitoring panel.   The relay module is a remote switching station to control exhaust or louvers.  The system captures local readings at each transmitter and uses zone averaging to keep fluctuations from activating circulation systems unnecessarily.  The control panel can activate only those fans and devices necessary to clear the affected area when gas concentration rises.

Honeywell Wireless Zone Control

Please take this opportunity to learn from our mistake.  The Honeywell redlink HZ432 can only have a maximum of 4 zones when using wireless thermostats.  If you are using the TAZ-4 expansion pack with the redlink HZ432, each zone on the HZ432 and the TAZ-4 must have their own individual equipment interface module's when using wireless stats.
