    Fred's Heating & Air Public Service Announcement:

    New residential furnace requirements are set to take effect May 1, 2013. Under these new guidelines, residents of Nebraska and Iowa will be required to install high efficiency furnaces, with a minimum AFUE of 90%. This only applies to those that replace their furnaces after the May 1st deadline. Residents with existing furnaces that are less than 90% efficient, will not be forced to upgrade.

    Why is this so important? If you have an aging furnace, and it's less than 90% efficient, it will save you a ton of MONEY to consider an upgrade PRIOR to May of next year.

    High efficiency, 90%+ furnaces, require the installation of extensive 2 or 3 inch PVC piping for intake/exhaust purposes that can prove extremely difficult and costly. It may require cutting holes in drywall, and slight construction modifications that significantly increase the cost of the project. High efficiency furnaces themselves are also considerably more expensive than lower efficiency models.

    If your furnace is over 8 years old, and you're considering an upgrade, call Fred's or visit us online at www.fredsheatingandair.com and let us take care of you before May 1, 2013!

    Vision Helpers introduces the Low Vision Reader Computer System HD to help persons with low vision read print and read the Internet.

    "There are millions of people that can not read the Internet, local magazines, newspapers, books and much more due to their low vision. To best help these persons with low vision, we have designed the Low Vision Reader", says Pat Fischer, CEO of Vision Helpers.

    Unlike a computer you buy on-line or in a store, the low vision reader is totally customizable and designed to accommodate a persons vision loss. The most popular model comes with a 27" HD screen connected to a new Dell computer running Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit, with 8G of RAM and built in Ethernet and wireless networking. Installed and configured is Freedom Scientific's MAGic screen magnification software with speech and a large print keyboard. Options include 32", 37" 42" and 46" HD screens, bigger hard drives and anything else that fits.

    Sitting right next to the display is a Freedom Scientific Topaz XL HD desktop video magnifier which provides the best magnification and resolution in the industry with its high definition camera. If you need help reading due to macular degeneration or other forms of low vision, then the Low Vision Reader is the system for you.

    "If you know someone with low vision and they miss reading the newspaper in print, or miss using a computer to read on-line, then have them call us today so we may help them".

    In addition, Vision Helpers has Large Print solutions and a low cost line of LED magnifiers which are both inexpensive ways to allow a person with low vision to remain independent.

    Vision Helpers is a division of Accessibility dot Net, Inc. and seeks partners that have a passion to help persons who are blind and visually impaired. http://www.lowvisionreader.com/press-release-12-18-12.html
