Each year, the AHR Expo honors HVACR manufacturers with its Innovation Awards. The awards — which cover 10 categories from building automation to heating and cooling, on to green building and more — are chosen by a panel of ASHRAE judges.
Out of the ten categories, one overall winner is chosen as the most innovative of the year. During this year’s event in Las Vegas, the judges chose Taco in the plumbing category as the overall winner for its SmartPlug Smart Hot Water Recirculation Control. So what makes this product so innovative? And what is the future of innovation in the HVAC industry?
