The LeakBreaker, a water heater leak protection device that guards against flood damage from a leaking water heater, is now available with Taco Comfort Solutions’ eLink wireless technology.

The unit consists of a control unit, a valve with actuator, a sensor and Wi-Fi capability, enabling status alerts to be sent directly to a user’s mobile device whenever a change occurs.

This resettable, testable protection device can be installed on any style water heater to shut off incoming water supply, preventing additional water flow to a damaged water heater.  The two-color LED light and audible alarm provides continuous LeakBreaker status.  Alerts are now also sent via text or email.

The unit’s plumb and plug design – with full-port valve and easily-removed actuator – is engineered to permit new or retrofit installation. Components are pre-wired to simplify installation; just plug in the sensor, valve, power supply and/or batteries.  LeakBreaker can be tested any time, and then be reset to guard against a future leak.

When it comes to boiler maintenance, BoilerMag has you covered. Purchasing individual components is costly and time consuming. Instead of having to go through the trouble of purchasing separate boiler filter components, BoilerMag, The Ultimate Filtration Solution, is an easy first choice, offering all necessary components in one package, saving you hundreds of dollars.

Our tried and trusted patented magnetic technology ensures that virtually 100% of ferrous oxide and scale is removed on first pass. This heating system filter offers major benefits:

  • Install/Clean in minutes, protects for years
  • Dual flow technology – filters twice on one pass
  • Includes automatic air vent to automatically release trapped air
  • Guaranteed no block
  • Removes both magnetic and non-magnetic debris
  • Fits in line and has 360º adjustment
  • Easy access for chemical dosing
  • Features 1″ NPT threaded valves (1.25″ NPT adaptors included)

BoilerMag is an NPT threaded air, dirt, and magnetite separator, used to prevent the build-up of iron oxide, also known as black sludge. Ferrous metal contamination is attracted to the magnetic rods, removing the smallest particles, down to sub-micron size from circulation.

Its unique patented magnetic core ensures that despite the amount of contamination; BoilerMag can never block thus increasing energy efficiency, significantly prolonging the boiler life, protecting pipework and considerably reducing maintenance calls.

BoilerMag also catches non-magnetic contamination, such as dirt and debris using a mesh filter and is easily cleaned in minutes without fully removing the pipework. BoilerMag also features an automatic air vent, which releases trapped air from the boiler system to maintain heating efficiency. BoilerMag’s user-friendly application can be easily installed in any heating system, residential or commercial.

Johnson Controls has released the newest addition to their premium line of residential systems, the YORK® Affinity™ Series YZT two-stage Heat Pump. The ENERGY STAR® rated heat pump delivers advanced efficiencies and smart home capabilities.

The 19 SEER, 10.0 HSPF efficiency can save homeowner’s up to 47 percent on energy use. Even greater efficiency can be achieved when installed with the Alexa® compatible, Wi-Fi®-enabled Affinity™ Hx3™ Touch-screen smart Thermostat. When connected, the combination offers top-of-the-line features for both homeowners and contractors.

Homeowners can now control and monitor their home comfort system by voice command using an Amazon Alexa® device or, remotely using the Hx® app. Contractors can expect easy setup and support thanks to near field communication, a set of short-range wireless technologies and a dedicated distributor app.

“With the addition of the YZT heat pump, we offer a truly comprehensive package of energy-efficient solutions to help contractors meet the needs of homeowners at any budget,” said Liz Haggerty, vice president and general manager, Ducted Systems, Johnson Controls.

Several additional innovations enhance the system’s performance:

  • QuietDrive™ incorporates a sound-reducing swept-wing fan blade, composite base pan and sound containment cloak to reduce typical outdoor operating sound levels.
  • ClimaTrak™—allows further fine-tuning of the blower for specific applications, whether to compensate for arid environments or maximize the use of additional air quality accessories including system-matched humidifiers, germ-killing UVC lights and high-efficiency MERV 16-rated filtration, for reduced dust and contaminants.
  • A two-stage compressor for quiet and efficient operation.
  • A compact footprint without sacrificing performance.
  • An automotive-grade powder coat finish rated at 1,000 hours of salt spray to ensure the unit can withstand harsh weather conditions.
  • Auto configuration and auto system updates via Wi-Fi® when installed as a communicating system.
  • YZT can be sold as a complete Affinity™ residential system or as a premium upgrade to an existing system.

Designed, engineered and assembled in the United States, system components are backed by the manufacturing expertise of Fortune 100 parent company Johnson Controls and an unmatched limited one-year labor warranty, lifetime compressor and 10-year parts limited warranties on registered products. Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) facilities aid in the systematic testing of components, including more than 20 years of accelerated operation testing for weather, humidity and temperatures as high as 125° F and as low as -10° F to ensure lasting performance and world-class quality.

In addition, units meet AHRI Standard 210/240 and 340/360 at AHRI conditions and meet relevant ASHRAE 90.1, ENERGY STAR® and EPAct2005 standards.

Cold-Shot® Pipe Freezing Kit from General Pipe Cleaners lets you repair an operating water system without draining water lines before cutting pipe or tubing.  The Cold-Shot freezes liquids in steel, copper, cast iron, aluminum or plastic pipes, 1/8” through 2” in diameter, using Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in dip-tube cylinders.  It can create an ice plug in copper tubing within five minutes – and in steel pipe within three minutes. The Cold-Shot is faster, more compact and less expensive than “refrigerator-type” or “bag-type” units.
