Engineered Systems’ Commercial Comfort Products of the Year Awards program (CCP) was established to honor excellence in HVACR product design. The prestigious awards program showcases the most innovative products that can be conveniently designed, specified, installed, and maintained. Consumer features on many products are easily recognized and glamorized, but about the time, effort, and expense that goes into creating a product that is actually effective and preferred by those in the field? Engineered Systems’ editors are proud to disseminate these awards on inventive products that are designed with HVAC engineers in mind.

The competition is open to all manufacturers in the commercial HVAC industry.

• Products entered into the competition must have been introduced to the market after Jan.1, 2019, and are available to the market no later than April 30, 2020.

• A limit of three entries can be submitted per company brand. Products can only be entered one time.
