“We had a great first day. Our booth was constantly busy with people coming in to see our new energy-efficient products. We didn’t know what to expect with the show being held in Las Vegas for the first time but we are very happy,” said Mark Handzel, Director of Building Services Market at ITT Residential & Commercial Water.
Walking around the Show floor the buzz among the industry manufacturers and professional was all about energy efficiency and sustainability trends that are placing more emphasis on controls, challenging engineers, contractors, and commissioning providers with the design, installation, tuning and maintenance of increasingly sophisticated building systems. This trend is going to get even more intense as technology increases and consumers demand it.
A highlight of the Show for many attending, especially the 10 winners was the Innovation Awards. ITT Bell & Gossett won in the inaugural Plumbing Category for its ecorcirc® hot water circulator. During the presentation it was recognized for its energy-saving features and innovative design.
It was apparent at the Show that over the next decade, the HVACR industry will continue to improve and that will mean the industry will have additional opportunities. Many of these will come from technological advancements. We need to embrace these technologies and recognize the capabilities and possibilities these will bring to the future of building systems.
