PORTLAND, OR (September 26, 2007) – AirAdvice, Inc. is opening new doors for residential HVAC contractors by launching expanded advanced home diagnostics solutions. Fully compatible with existing full-featured AirAdvice monitors, the new HomeAdvice™ solutions include:

• Wireless monitors measure multiple locations for more complete comfort and energy savings analysis
• A communication gateway transmits data via cellular network to the HomeAdvice server, eliminating the need for a standard land line
• New SmartIAQ Plus™ reports effectively highlight comfort issues and opportunities to save energy

The new and expanded HomeAdvice features give contractors the ability to quickly and easily identify hot and cold spots in the home through simultaneous multi-room testing, as well as sophisticated time-based diagnosis of the most common indoor environment issues: humidity, temperature, particle allergens, chemical pollutants, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide.

'HomeAdvice delivers more of what our contractors told us they wanted,' says Isaac Simpson, vice president of contractor services at AirAdvice. 'More diagnostics, more information for their customers on energy and system performance. HomeAdvice is about helping contractors serve their customers. We've got some exciting new technology and program updates – it's a whole new level of home diagnostics, developed as a direct result of contractor input and initiative.'

The new and expanded HomeAdvice features give contractors the ability to quickly and easily identify hot and cold spots in the home through simultaneous multi-room testing, as well as sophisticated time-based diagnosis of the most common indoor environment issues: humidity, temperature, particle allergens, chemical pollutants, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide.

Every HomeAdvice report illustrates test results and recommendations for customers along with important educational information, detailed analysis sections, and colorful charts and graphs. In addition, the new HomeAdvice SmartIAQ Plus™ report lets contractors easily combine data from multiple monitors into a single, comprehensive report.

'The way the new [SmartIAQ Plus] report displays temperatures from different areas in the home is a selling point for me,' says Ted Kirkland at Bland Air Conditioning & Heating in Bakersfield, California. 'It shows people that they have hot and cold spots in their home, which opens doors for me. I can sell more variable speed systems that way.'

The updated HomeAdvice reports offer additional advantages to help contractors visually demonstrate problems and offer the right solutions. The Outdoor Environment page more effectively shows the outdoor temperature and humidity at the test location. The Energy Use page features a specific energy recommendation plus new 'green' and programmable thermostat sections to better show homeowners how an equipment upgrade might impact their energy bill and their carbon footprint.

'We've had success using AirAdvice to sell equipment upgrades and add-on IAQ solutions,' says Jonathan Moscatello, comfort advisor at Oregon Heating and HomeAdvice system beta tester. 'Now, with the new [HomeAdvice] technology, we can reach the next level. We can clearly demonstrate the need for zoning and sell more high efficiency systems. This ties directly to our focus on whole home systems overall.´
