AirScape App for iPhone and iPad now Available.

Our app for iPhone® and iPad® is now available from the App Store. We released our app for Android devices about a year ago, and are incredibly excited to offer the same great functionality to our customers with Apple® devices.

With this FREE app, homeowners with AirScape whole house fans can:iOS_Blog_iPhone

  • Scan their network to find all AirScape whole house fans connected to it;
  • Assign custom names to each fan on the network for easy identification;
  • Control a connected fan through the app’s interface, which is identical to that on our wall switches and wireless remotes; and,
  • View a fan’s status, indoor and attic temperatures, as well as any SafeSpeed™ notifications if this accessory has been installed.

To operate a fan using this app, both your fan and iPhone or iPad need to be connected to the same local area network (“LAN”)—your fan using a CAT-5 cable between its control box and your router, and your iPhone or iPad using Wi-Fi. For safety purposes this app cannot operate fans over the internet or your cellular network. If, for example, you’ve got access to the internet using your local coffee shop’s network or your phone’s 3G/4G service, our app will not be able to connect to your home’s fan.

Fans that are not connected to a network cannot be controlled using this app. Also, this app is compatible with only AirScape whole house fans with 2nd generation controls (sold 2013 to present).

Energy Rebate Search Tools

Okay, this isn’t an infomercial on how to get free money from the government, but there are many government entities and public utilities that still offer significant rebates for consumers and businesses that invest in energy efficiency projects, appliances, and equipment.

After all, who doesn’t like to get money back right?

There are a couple websites where you can go to research available rebates that may help you recover some of your project costs..

The Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency or DSIRE is a comprehensive source of information on state, federal, local, and utility incentives and policies that support renewable energy and energy efficiency. It was established in 1995 through funded from the U.S. Department of Energy.

The U.S. Department of Energy has a search tool that allows users to filter down through a database of rebates by state, economic sector, type of product/project and the provider of the rebate.

Hopefully these tools will help you save money on your energy related projects while lower your energy consumption and contributing toward a sustainable energy future.
