industry members a chance to see them in person for the first time.
“Manufacturers are making technologically smarter, more water conserving and energy efficient products,” said Ralph Suppa, president and general manager of the Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating in a press release. “These options provide simple and elegant solutions to efficiently maintain manage or enhance the comfort inside the building envelope.
