Nortek Global HVAC Wins at 2017 ACHR Design Awards

R7TQ takes bronze in the HVAC light commercial equipment category

St. Louis, July 31, 2017 – Nortek Global HVAC was recognized as a bronze winner in the HVAC light commercial category of the 14th annual Dealer Design Awards. This program is sponsored by The Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration News magazine. Model R7TQ is recognized for its high value, direct-fit replacement capabilities and flexibility. This model is sold under the Mammoth and Reznor brands.

“These awards give us a unique opportunity to recognize the outstanding research and development efforts that go into many of the products serving the HVACR industry, and the awards issue gives our readers an opportunity to read about innovative installation and service solutions,” said Mike Murphy, publisher at The ACHR News.

The Mammoth R7TQ can fit directly into popular, existing roof curbs without a curb adapter – eliminating delays and saving installation time. The Reznor R7TQ stands out because of its flexibility. These rooftop units can be configured at the factory, so consultant engineers or design-build contractors can get the exact spec unit they need delivered to the job site. It features 35 options per tonnage size – there are over 750,000 unit configurations available.

“We are honored to be selected as this year’s recipient of the bronze award for our new configurable rooftop product,” said David Street, vice president of engineering and product management at Nortek Global HVAC. “This award reinforces the positive feedback we have received from contractors.”

Winners in the 14th annual Dealer Design Awards were selected from 81 entries by an independent panel of contractors. Winning entries in the Dealer Design Awards were featured in the July 24, 2017 issue of The ACHR News, which is distributed nationally to over 33,000 HVACR contractors, wholesalers and other industry professionals.
