MT. VERNON, NY – ICE AIR®, the developer and manufacturer of a wide variety of HVAC units, has been awarded a U.S. Patent (US 9,383,115 B2) for their fresh air ventilation package, which relates to fresh air ventilation devices for use with air conditioners (ACs) and/or heaters. In operation, the patented device supplements the recirculating air of the AC/heater with fresh air drawn from outside of the building.

“Ice Air’s product lines and advanced green features are continually evolving to meet changing market demands,” said Ric Nadel, Chairman/Co-CEO of the company after the award. “In fact, we came up with this device, which we call Xstream Air™ to provide from 20-100 cfm of filtered, tempered outside air through our advanced terminal equipment after listening to one of our specifying engineers.”

Peter Joselow, President of Joselow & Associates, LLC, an engineering firm in White Plains, NY, was that engineer. “I remember telling them they should do this because of Code requirements coming up. They actually listened.”

Essentially, codes are requiring fresh air ventilation as buildings become more “sealed.” According to Joselow, “In the old days, you cracked a window a bit, but the new Codes are requiring non-tenant interference with fresh air ventilation. ICE AIR’s product does that job.”

ICE AIR is in a select group, as the U.S. PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE has issued 288,335 US utility patents in 2015. “It’s an honor to receive this patent,” Mo Siegel, ICE AIR’s President/Co-CEO says. “Xstream Air™ eliminates the need for separate make-up air systems or window mounted ‘trickle vents’ and brings fresh air from the building’s exterior and filters and tempers it before mixing it with air from inside the room to create a single, refreshing air stream.”

ICE AIR, headquartered in Mount Vernon, New York, develops and manufactures a wide variety of HVAC units to provide superior new construction heating and cooling systems and to replace old installations. ICE AIR offers advanced green technologies, environmentally sound “green” refrigerant, and provides world class comfort at high efficiency levels, meeting environmental standards and promoting a healthy environment that include: Packaged Terminal A/C (PTACs), Water Source Heat Pumps (WSHP), Fan Coil Units (FCUs), Single Package Vertical Air Conditioner and Heat Pumps (SPAC/SPHP), and Hybrid Water Cooled A/C conditioners (HWCAC).
