MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 23, 2009: Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today introduced enhancements to its Aquatrol Hydronic Boiler Controls, which allow contractors to have advanced control of a hydronic heating system. Aquatrol's new features simplify the installation process while providing functionality to work on more advanced jobs."The ease of use and customization options make this a perfect product for contractors who want to offer increased energy savings to their customers, as well as reduce their own installation time on the job site, leading to increased profits for their business," said Bala Ekambaram, director of product marketing for the Environmental and Combustion Controls Home Comfort and Energy Systems business, leading the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), zoning and water product marketing teams.Aquatrol comes with intuitive, color-coded wiring terminals to make installation simple. It is pre-programmed with the most common installation settings so contractors can use it right out of the box. For those who prefer more advanced customized options, a plain-language digital screen guides contractors through easy-to-follow, on-screen menus, reducing the need for an installation manual. In addition, Aquatrol's modular design allows contractors to easily expand to up to 64 zones of heating, and recent enhancements allow it to work with any digital thermostat and control up to two stages of heating, making it an ideal solution for jobs of any size or complexity.Aquatrol may help homeowners looking to save energy as well. Most models provide outdoor reset, which helps a boiler run at more efficient settings based on outdoor temperature, saving homeowners up to 15 percent on their annual heating costs.Visit for more information on Honeywell Aquatrol Hydronic Controls.Aquatrol EnhancementsHoneywell International is a $37 billion diversified technology and manufacturing leader, serving customers worldwide with aerospace products and services; control technologies for buildings, homes and industry; automotive products; turbochargers; and specialty materials.
