During the AHR Exposition this month, the National Balancing Council (NBC) held a drawing in Booth 4896 to give away an NSI 3000 low-level carbon monoxide (CO) monitor. This monitor offers real protection for all age groups and conditions, especially infants, children, the elderly, and highly sensitive or ill people. The NSI 3000 uses the same electrochemical sensor technology found in professional CO analyzers that cost thousands of dollars.

The winner was Ken Smith, vice president of Associated Piping Services, a residential and commercial HVAC and piping contracting firm located in Orlando, FL. Smith, who stopped by the NBC booth to talk with experts about commercial testing and balancing certification and commercial air balancing was one of many AHR attendees who dropped their business cards into the NBC drawing box to enter into the contest.

The company is family-owned and operated and has been in business since 1986, providing more than 25 years of service in plumbing and air conditioning/heating repairs, replacement and maintenance experience.

“Congratulations to Ken and his team and thanks for stopping by for a visit,” says NBC President Rob Falke. He adds that “The NSI 3000s are unique in that they are actually calibrated using CO, not electronic guesswork. They can be sold to customers or used as a personal protection monitor for your technicians in the field.”

These monitors are not available in retail outlets and are typically made available for purchase to those companies that send technicians to be trained in the National Comfort Institute’s Combustion Analysis and CO Safety certification classes.
