Price Increase Text over Graph and Metal Background
As the country begins to “open back up”, the ensuing demand has led to rapidly rising commodity prices. In the last few months, key commodities such as carbon steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel, and aluminum have increased significantly. While we have delayed the onset of this higher-priced material, we must implement a price increase moving forward. We will continue to monitor commodity price increases and advise if further EVAPCO price increases are required. Effective Monday, February 1, 2021, prices for all HVAC and industrial refrigeration products will increase up to eight percent
Free Cooling Setup at Utah State
After struggling with maintenance issues in their open-loop cooling tower system, Utah State University decided to invest in a long-term solution. In the spring of 2019, USU began to explore free cooling options, including EVAPCO’s eco-Air V Dry Cooler, to combat winter operation challenges with their existing field-erected cooling towers.

Water Glass Filled from the Tap with a Close Up of Legionella Bacteria
By: Daryn Cline, ASHRAE Member & Director of Environmental Technologies at EVAPCO, Inc. and Sarah Ferrari, Former Product Development Manager at EVAPCO, Inc. Legionnaires’ disease is on the rise. Unfortunately, efforts to prevent Legionnaires’ disease to date have focused on building water systems rather than the municipal water supply.

Original article found here. Recreating Discontinued Model Makes for a Smooth Installation Downtown Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin House needed an HVAC overhaul but, like most historic buildings, had no room to expand.
