When you stroll the AHR Expo floor this year, don’t leave things to chance. Nobody likes homework, but a little advance scouting out products of interest can save precious time in Las Vegas. We’ll wager something useful will catch your eye in our annual “show article.”

We’ve continued our tradition of asking exhibitors to let us know about their best (and often newest) offerings on display for attendees at this year’s AHR Expo. Likewise, they’ve continued their tradition of sending us a slew of announcements and press releases, which we have pared down to the article you see before you.

There’s a lot of good stuff here, so do have a look for some new products to improve your own job performance. As always with this particular feature, if a particular claim gets your attention, feel free to follow up with the company’s personnel at the booth. Otherwise, enjoy this, your chance to walk the show from your desk.
