15 12 2017
Pune, India -- 12/14/2017 -- HVAC Motors Market– OverviewHVAC (Heating/Ventilation/Air Conditioning) is the technology of controlling indoor and vehicular environments. HVAC systems are essential in industrial and office buildings to manage the costs of heating and cooling, especially when the structure is large enough that it requires different temperature zones throughout the building. Motors are used extensively in HVAC systems, so it pays to replace standard motors with the new and efficient ones. It is more beneficial in investing in variable speed drives for motors to reduce speed and save energy.HVAC motors possess some special features such as ball bearings, Heavy-gauge steel base and are suitable for mounting in any position. They possess dynamically balanced rotors for reduced vibration and quiet operation. Owing to these features, HVAC motors have a wide range of applications such as ventilators, summer cooling fans, band saws, drill presses and farm equipment among others.Widely...

Press Release - updated: Dec 14, 2017 19:14 EST
MILWAUKEE, December 14, 2017 - Cooler days and longer nights are here. Is your home winter-ready? Here are some of the top questions homeowners ask Chip Wade, best known as the Emmy-winning host of Elbow Room, Curb Appeal: The Block and several other HGTV® shows.
