Rheem Water Heating will sponsor a new award to draw interest in water heating, in the 2008 NKBA Design Competition. The annual award is hosted by the National Kitchen Bath Association (NKBA). The new “Smartest Hot Water Use Award” is part of a three-year sponsorship agreement that Rheem Water Heating is announcing with the NKBA.
Designers entering two of the competition’s four bathroom-design categories – Large Bathrooms and Master Suite/Bathrooms – are invited to submit 100-word descriptions of the hot-water solutions they have devised to maximize both comfort and conservation in their bath projects.
Entrants must itemize the hot water-related amenities included, such as whirlpools, steam baths, shower systems, body sprays, lav and bidet faucets, radiant-heated floors and walls, radiant-heated towel warmers, and the like. They must also indicate the specific hot water appliances serving those amenities. Tank-type, tankless and solar-powered water heaters are all eligible for consideration. Deadline for entries is October 19, 2007.
The winner of the “Smartest Hot Water Use Award” will receive a $1,500 award and be recognized at the NKBA Design Awards Ceremony during the 2008 Kitchen/Bath Industry Show in Chicago next spring.
