No matter the season, homes require HVAC equipment. In the summer, it’s air conditioning. In the winter, it’s heat. Not to mention the varying needs throughout all seasons for hot water, ventilation, humidity control, and more. Overall, it’s a combination of heating and cooling equipment that makes each dwelling comfortable and livable. And it is the contractors of this industry who do what they can to make homes comfortable and livable. Their jobs are made simpler with innovations in equipment from manufacturers looking to ease installation, service, and maintenance.
In honor of these inventions, The NEWS is honoring three manufacturers in the ninth annual Dealer Design Awards’ HVAC Residential Equipment category. Rheem brought home the gold with its XR90 Extreme Recovery Gas Water Heater. The silver went to Nordyne for its B6EMMX air handler with the Anteater MC™. Bronze was awarded to Enertech Global LLC for its TETCO ES4 Series, a vertical packaged, multi-positional geothermal heat pump.
