We would like to congratulate ASPE Affiliate Sponsors KOHLER and Rheem for being recognized as 2023 CES Innovation Awards Honorees.
KOHLER was honored for its Stillness Bath in the Smart Home category. The Stillness bath draws its inspiration from Japanese forest bathing. Water, light, fog, and aromas converge to create an immersive journey of the senses designed to relax the mind, soothe the body, and renew the spirit. It starts with water filling from the bottom of the bath, overflowing into the Hinoki wood moat to create a soothing sound. Full spectrum lighting surrounds the bath, creating a chromatherapy experience. Fog envelopes the surface of the water, immersing the bather, and essential oils can be added into the bath’s experience tower which emits aromas to stimulate the senses and promote focus.
Rheem was honored for its ProTerra® Plug-in Heat Pump in the Sustainability, Eco-Design & Smart Energy category. With water heating accounting for 14 percent of home energy usage, many homeowners are seeking solutions to reduce carbon emissions. ProTerra Plug-in, first of its kind in market, provides a game-changing plug-in, ready-to-use drop-in gas replacement offering energy savings and high-efficiency performance. It removed the cost prohibitive need to upgrade electrical panels for 240V hardwired service.
