WESTPORT, CT - August 31, 2006 - Submissions are now being accepted for one of the most prestigious honors in the HVAC/R industry - the 2007 AHR Expo Innovation Awards Program. The fifth annual competition is designed to encourage the development of new products that are both creative and useful, meet today's HVAC/R demands, and feature new technology that will have a significant impact on the residential, commercial or industrial markets.

Sponsored by International Exposition Company (IEC), the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI), the 2007AHR Expo Innovation Awards competition seeks out products and solutions that meet today's complex energy challenges, offer innovative design, provide value, and have useful applications.

The panel of judges is made up of specially selected ASHRAE members who are knowledgeable about a wide variety of products. Each year, the industry sees imagination become reality with submissions in nine product categories: Building Automation, Cooling, Green Building, Heating, Indoor Air Quality, Refrigeration, Software, Tools & Instruments, and Ventilation.

Entry Fee Proceeds Benefit Dallas Area HVAC/R Students

In addition to recognizing outstanding product innovation, the award program entry fees will be used to benefit local HVAC/R students in the Dallas, Texas area where the 2007 AHR Show is being held. During the first four years of the program, thousands of dollars have been donated to HVAC/R technical school scholarship funds.

"The AHR Expo Innovation Awards program has a positive impact on the HVAC/R industry," said Clay Stevens, President of IEC, Show Producers and Managers. "It calls attention to how successful manufacturers have been at turning new technology into useful and highly efficient products."

Winners of the AHR EXPO Innovation awards will be recognized at an awards ceremony during the AHR Expo in Dallas, January 29th-31st. They will also receive placards to display at their booths during the Show as well as an etched crystal award to be displayed at their company's headquarters. The ASHRAE Journal will also feature a special section on the winners. In 2006, the awards competition received a record number of entries.

The competition is open only to products that will be displayed at the 2007 AHR Expo and have not won a previous Innovation Award. Previous Honorable Mention winners can be submitted again. All entries must be received by September 25, 2006. For more information on how to enter or to view the 2006 winners, go to or email Winners will be notified in November 2006.
