Who will win gold in 2017? Vote for
this year’s best products


Consulting-Specifying Engineer's Product of the Year (POY) contest is the premier award for new products in the HVAC, fire/life safety, electrical, and plumbing systems engineering markets. The annual reader-choice program was created to provide Consulting-Specifying Engineer's readers with information about the top new product in their fields.


Another year of innovation and technological advancement has led up to the 13th annual Product of the Year awards. This year, companies submitted their new and improved products introduced in the 2016 calendar year to be judged for this distinguished honor. There are 91 finalists across 16 categories. It is now up to Consulting-Specifying Engineer readers to determine which products will stand out from the crowd and win gold, silver, and bronze.

The 2017 Product of the Year finalists are in; it's time to cast your vote!

Voting Rules:

Voting is only open to qualified subscribers of Consulting-Specifying Engineer products (magazine—print or digital, e-newsletters, white papers, etc.). Qualified subscribers are encouraged to vote in as many categories for which they are qualified based on technological advancement, service to the industry, and market impact. One (1) ballot per qualified subscriber will be accepted; multiple ballots from the same qualified subscriber will be invalid. Ballots received from non-qualified subscribers will be invalid. Employees of product manufacturers with a finalist in the current program and their properties, agencies, vendors, and representatives are not eligible to vote; hence any votes received by these parties will not be counted toward the final tally.
