Here’s another Price All-In-One tech tip to help you get the most out of our AIO software. This time AIO Product Manager Phill Litkowich takes a look at making a global change on your terminal unit selection.
Over the past few months, Price employees in Winnipeg have been volunteering with the Little Moose Hockey Program to give youth with limited opportunities the opportunity to learn how to play hockey. We are always happy to be able to help out in the community, and getting the chance to get out on the ice to teach youth how to play a sport the volunteers love has been a great experience for everyone.
Greenbuild 2010, held in Chicago this past November, featured over 100 exhibitors—all showcasing the latest and greatest in green product and service innovation.
For the sixth year in a row, Price was there to connect with architects, engineers and builders interested in green construction, and show off our green product offerings.

When selecting a fan powered terminal unit (FPU) as a component in the overall building HVAC system, it is important to understand the differences in the motor technologies that are available. The type of motor–permanent split capacitator (PSC) or electronically commutated motor (ECM)–should be evaluated in terms of energy consumption characteristics and the cost differential/payback period due to energy savings is an important component of that selection.
Several local codes have adopted rules that limit the motor type in series FPUs to only ECM, but fail to address the motor type in the parallel FPU. At the national code level, there is some discussion on making the ECM motor the default type for use in series FPUs as well.
