Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US (METUS) was awarded a National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) 2019 Global Innovation Award for its SLZ-KF Four-Way Ceiling Cassette model in the internal/external products category.
The four SLZ-KF models deliver highly efficient heating and cooling performance, with SEER ratings from 19.8 to 22.4. Other benefits include multiple airflow options and an unobtrusive ductless design. An optional built-in 3D i-see Sensor can scan the room and determine occupancy levels to enhance comfort and efficiency by responsively adjusting airflow and conditioning. Dozens of airflow combinations, including settings for indirect or direct airflow patterns, provide personal comfort control and uniform temperature distribution.
“The products recognized by this year’s Global Innovation Awards offer home builders new options for building more sustainable, more efficient and more comfortable homes as well as unique ways to plan and sell them to buyers,” said S. Robert August, Chairman of the NAHB Global Opportunities Board. “We’re excited to welcome these winners to our family of innovators who’ve been honored with this award.”
The award was given during the NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS) Global Industry Day in Las Vegas on January 22. Judges used the following criteria: innovation, functionality, good design, builder/consumer friendly, sustainability and unique marketing approach.
“We’re incredibly proud to receive this honor from the National Association of Home Builders,” said Michelle Robb, Senior Director of Marketing, METUS. “As the name of the award suggests, we work diligently to develop products that aren’t only functional, but also innovative and forward-thinking. We’re pleased to have our SLZ unit recognized for just that.”
