MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 26, 2009 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today introduced Glowfly™, a silicone nitride universal hot surface igniter for furnaces and other gas-fired heating appliances. Glowfly is specifically designed for service replacement jobs.
Each Glowfly igniter includes six custom mounting brackets that are optimized to replace more than 110 igniter applications from nearly every furnace manufacturer.
“Replacing a hot surface igniter can be tricky,” said Thurman Melson, director of marketing, Honeywell Residential Combustion Control. “Honeywell has made it easy with Glowfly. Contractors will no longer need to carry a variety of replacement parts to match the wide range of igniter styles used in various furnace brands.”
Glowfly’s unique truck-ready six pack includes a visual cross reference guide right on the package. All the contractor needs to do is remove the old igniter and compare it with one of the diagrams on the package to determine the correct mounting bracket for the job.
Furthermore, Glowfly’s second-generation silicon nitride material is more durable than most installed silicon carbide igniters, making it less prone to breakage when used in challenging installs.
Glowfly is available also available in a single unit pack that includes a three-year warranty.
