What's New in Products for the Home
A look at new water filtration, lighting and window products.
Out With the Bad
Using a dual-stage, dual-cartridge canister filtration design, Everpure's H-1200 Drinking Water System cleans contaminants and carcinogens out of residential faucets without eliminating helpful minerals such as fluoride. The filters remove particles as small as one-half of a micron (1/50,000 of an inch). Click here for more information
Inside Looking Out
Designed for new-home construction, Milgard's Montecito vinyl window series meets Energy Star requirements while eschewing argon gas as filler. The series has a 3¼-inch frame depth with integral nail fin and a 1 3/8-inch setback for installation ease. The windows also use the company's SmartTouch one-touch locking system.

The units also feature the company's Dynamic Stability Control software that senses the load position and automatically adjusts the drum to reduce vibration and operation noise.
