The world’s largest residential and light construction building event is right around the corner – and one you won’t want to miss! More than 75,000 building enthusiasts and 2,000 exhibitors are expected to be in Las Vegas next week, January 20-22, for the 2015 International Builders’ Show (IBS).
IBS is known for having the most in-depth and up-to-date education programs in the industry each year – and 2015 is no exception. More than 100 educational sessions, presented by renowned building professionals from across the country, will be available, covering everything from high performance building techniques and materials to effective sales and financing strategies. The National Association of Home Builders’ annual idea house, The New American Home (TNAH), will be open to showcase the latest design and technology in the home building industry. Unlike previous TNAHs that focused on creating a one-of-a-kind custom home, this year’s home will demonstrate how cutting-edge products and technology can be integrated into a state-of-the-art community.
We’ll be on the exhibition floor (booth #C8910), where we’ll unveil our latest controls program. Booth visitors will also have the opportunity to learn about two of our newest product offerings that have raised the industry bar for ductless technology:
- The Hyper-Heating INVERTER™ (H2i®) MXZ multi-zone outdoor unit is the first residential multi-zone heat pump technology for use in extreme cold climates. This system is ideal for whole-home cooling and heating in areas of the country where ductless was previously considered ineffective. The H2i MXZ has received industry recognition already after taking the top spot in the Heating category of the 2015 AHR Expo Innovation Awards.
- The H2i MSZ-FH single-zone outdoor unit is the most energy-efficient ductless system on the market at 30.5 SEER. The H2i MSZ-FH operates at 100 percent heating capacity at 5 degrees Fahrenheit and continues providing efficient heating down to minus 13 degrees Fahrenheit, giving it the lowest ambient performance at the highest SEER rating in the industry. While it was previously thought that cold climates and heat pump performance couldn’t go hand-in-hand, this system offers year-round comfort anywhere in the country.
With so much in store, be sure to stop by booth #C8910!
